SUZUKI launched the new 2023 V-Strom 800DE to a packed hall at this year's EICMA show in Milan, inadvertently launching the new machine into a two-way fight with the similar Honda XL750 Transalp. This morning the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE price is now known, helping you gauge whether the new adventure motorcycle is a good fit for your garage.

Both feature parallel twin-cylinder engines, with comparable specs and performance, but one important piece of the puzzle was missing; the price of each machine. It’s a question that has been answered in part this morning, as the 2023 Suzuki V-Strom 800DE price is now known for the UK market.

2023 Suzuki V-Strom 800DE UK price announced

The bike will be landing in UK dealerships in the Spring of 2023 and will have a price of £10,499 attached to it. The price remains the same for any of the colour options heading to the UK, meaning the classy-looking grey bike, traditional Suzuki yellow and blue, and the black and blue bike all cost the same.

For that, you get a 776cc parallel twin, with a 270-degree crank and a claimed power output of 84hp. The bike features adventure-ready fully adjustable Showa suspension which gives 220mm of travel front and rear. For those that actually ride off-road, the middleweight V-Strom comes equipped with a gravel mode, and the option to turn the traction control off altogether.

Suzuki V-Strom 800DE price vs the rivals

The new V-Strom 800DE price slots it right into the heart of the middleweight adventure bike sector, undercutting the KTM 890 Adventure, Ducati DesertX, and Aprilia Tuareg. Each of those could be considered a comparable competitor, although there is still one unknown, the price of the Honda XL750 Transalp. We are expecting news of that bike's UK price in the new year and we’ll update you as soon as we have that information.
