SW-Motech Now Outfitting The Suzuki V-Strom 800DE


Recommended Posts

SW-Motech continues to roll out new accessories specifically designed to fit new-in-production adventure bikes. This week, we get news that the German manufacturer has just released a bunch of parts that allow riders to add protection and luggage capacity to the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE.

SW-Motech’s PR says the company now has luggage carriers (racks) that allow riders to attach hard or soft luggage. The PRO luggage carriers will fit SW-Motech’s new DUSC panniers and topbox (made of ABS plastic—see Mike’s review here) as well as the TRAX ADV aluminum panniers/topbox or the Sysbag soft luggage system.  The PRO side carriers use a quick-release design that allows you to quickly remove the luggage racks, which is probably especially useful to V-Strom 800DE owners. That bike is surprisingly capable off-road, and if you want to hoon in the dunes, it’s always a good idea to strip off unnecessary weight first.

The PRO tankbag ring-mount system will also fit the V-Strom 800DE, allowing quick-release mounting of the PRO Trial tankbag, with 13-18 liter capacity, with MOLLE webbing letting riders attach more accessories to the bag as they wish. PRO Rearbag and PRO Roadpack tailbags will fit the Strom easily with their included straps; add SW-Motech’s Adventure Rack, and you can install a PRO Rackpack. With as much as 42 liters of luggage available through these tailbags, riders may not need anything more than a tankbag and tailbag if they’re sticking to short weekend rides.

Finally, SW-Motech also has skid plates, crash bars and handguards for the new Strom. See full details at SW-Motech’s US site here and remember: The standard-model V-Strom 800 should also accept most of the accessories made for the DE model.
