Your Adventure Awaits

Presenting a bike so revolutionary it opened the door on an entirely new motorcycle category: Sport Enduro Tourer. City road, open road, it has the cornering clearance of a sportsbike, the cruising capability of a tourer.

A powerplant based on the proven TL1000, a textbook example of advance design that houses a pulsing 90° V-twin. A performance package rich in refinements, the aluminium twin-spar frame is lighter than steel frames. An upright seating position ensures optimum visibility, the 22-litre fuel tank gives you the riding range of a touring machine.

Engineered to have no limits, this all-rounder lets you live the adventure in your mind.


  • 996cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 90-degree V-Twin engine provides strong and accessible power throughout the rpm range for exhilarating performance.
  • Advanced digital engine management system featuring Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV), delivers optimum combustion efficiency for linear response, fuel economy and superior low-end torque, along with low emissions.
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinder bores and lightweight forged pistons both provide maximum efficiency. Compact cylinder heads, short crankshaft and staggered transmission shafts for light compact design.
  • Auto fast idling system brings smooth starting operation.
  • Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system effectively keeps emissions low.
