2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT Review – First Ride

The new R-b-W throttle system is simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous mechanical throttle, with 49mm bores replacing the 45mm ones of old. An independent throttle is installed to each cylinder, and each one has but a single butterfly valve opened and closed by its own motor, with one 10-hole injector per cylinder.
