2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT Review – First Ride

These powerful 310mm discs and four-piston Tokico calipers have more tricks than David Blaine. They’re a tad grabby initially but who cares since you’ve got such excellent ABS? I think you could fix it by adding more compression damping to the fork, which has softer settings than the previous bike, but I turned up the rebound by mistake and the engineers smiled and said “please do not do that again.” Actually the fork did feel better, but I think it’s because we rode a bit slower post-adjustment.
