Suzuki has just revealed the V-Strom 800 DE Rally Edition, a hardcore variant of the popular V-Strom 800 DE. Developed by the Suzuki GB team in collaboration with the SR75 Suzuki World Team, this rally-ready motorcycle is set to make waves in upcoming races.

Key Upgrades for Rally Performance

To boost its race-winning potential, the Rally Edition features several lightweight and high-performance components:

  • Lighter Wheels: New, lightweight wheels reduce unsprung mass for better handling.
  • Titanium Exhaust System: Enhances performance while reducing weight.
  • AS3 Sump Guard: Provides essential protection during rugged off-road rides.
  • 18-inch Rear Wheel: Paired with Dunlop D209RR off-road tires for superior traction.

The bike also sports a striking SR75 racing livery, adding to its aggressive aesthetic.

Engine and Performance

Under the hood, the Rally Edition retains the stock 776cc parallel-twin engine, delivering 84 bhp and excellent mid-range torque. The six-speed gearbox and suspension system remain unchanged, ensuring reliable performance and durability.
