Be amazed by this V-Strom 800DE in Rally Edition version by the SR75 Suzuki World Team

It is not the first time we see a version Rally Edition of the well-known Suzuki V-Strom 800DE. Last summer we showed you the special edition intended for the French market, equipped with a specific accessory kit. The price difference with respect to the standard version was then estimated at around 1,300 euros.

A few months earlier, the HRT (Hessler Rallye Team) also unveiled the sublime preparation known as the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE Desert Express. A beastly “Rally Edition” ready to cross any desert on the planet without flinching. A true Dakar rider available in up to three different equipment versions.

Now we have learned, thanks to the colleagues at Visor Down, this Rally Edition preparation by the SR75 Suzuki World Team. We are talking about one of the best professional teams in the UK competing in Supercross, Motocross and Beach Racing in the UK, France, Europe and the USA.

They have been in charge of putting together this “Rally Edition” that will be exhibited at the Adventure Bike Rider Festival from June 28 to 30, and is loaded to the teeth with key elements to improve its off-road performance. Among them, we can highlight:

  • Modified FMF Titanium Exhaust
  • Envy wheels measuring 18” in front
  • Dunlop D209RR Tires
  • AS3 crankcase cover
  • AS3 handlebar risers

The mechanics of this V-Strom 800DE Rally Edition remain unchanged, so its parallel twin-cylinder engine 776cc It continues to offer us the same 84 HP of power that the brand declares in the standard version. There are also no changes to the suspension or braking equipment, sufficient to assimilate the power emanating from its mechanics.

Geoff Walker, owner of the SR75 Suzuki World Team, commented: “Racing the RM-Z around the world may be our bread and butter, but we’re also always keen to build a project like this. We produced the SR75 V-Strom 650XT a couple of years ago, and as soon as the 800DE was released, we were always interested in getting our hands on one.”

Concludes: “This is really the first stage of the build and we’ll make a few more modifications before we go racing, but we think we’ve taken what was already a solid base package for an adventure bike that you could ride off-road or in the city. . It’s that versatile and usable, and I turned it into a bike that can hold its own in a competitive rally.”

We don’t know if the brand will launch a Rally Edition version of the V-Strom 800DE, inspired by the SR75 Suzuki World Team bike. It certainly wouldn’t be a bad idea considering the power of this preparation and the off-road capabilities it has, ideal for those who love extreme driving.

Happy drivers
