Suzuki V-Strom 800DE Model Overview

I thought I’d do a run down on the new Suzuki V-Strom 800DE, a bit of a harder nosed option that lands between the 650 and 1000 with a strong set of inclusions that could up the competition in that mid-capacity ADV segment.

Pricing was listed as $18,590 Ride Away on the Suzuki Motorcycles Australia website, but that’s since been changed to TBA, by way of comparison the V-Strom 650XT is currently $15k here ride-away, while the 2023 V-Strom 1000s are $23k and $24.7k respectively for the base and DE models.

Suzuki are pretty renowned for offering great value machines too, so I’m hoping that continues with the V-Strom 800, but in comparison to the GSX-8S which has also just been launched, the V-Strom actually carries a few more premium features.
