For ensuring the rider's safety, the Suzuki V-Strom 1050 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with lean angle-sensitive ABS, ride-by-wire, traction control, hill hold, and cruise control.
Suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 43mm inverted forks on the front side and a bottom link-type mono-shock unit on the rear end.
