The V-Strom 800RE is powered by a 776cc DOHC 270° crank parallel twin engine, with four valves per cylinder and a long-stroke configuration it delivers a balance of punchy low-down grunt, usable mid-range drive and a free-revving pull, all the way to the top-end.
The design is a lightweight chassis, created to maximise agility, comfort, utility, and riding pleasure. The result of its development is a chassis that will contribute to comfort when touring for long distances, but also give great cornering performance and provide stable handling under all riding environments. It also delivers reassuring straight-line stability when riding at motorway speeds, even when carrying a passenger and when the bike is fitted with the genuine-accessory top and sides cases and loaded with gear.
