Suzuki details the Traction Control System (TCS) on their revamped liter-class V-Strom 1000 bike.
A first for Suzuki, traction control is offered as standard equipment with the new liter Strom and given the very attractive price of the bike, it will be one of the decision-making factors for new customers.

The Suzuki TCS comes with dual-mode operation, or 3-mode if we count the "OFF" setting, as well. Mode 1 allows a limited rear wheel slip before engaging traction control, and is therefore suitable for riders who are acquainted to little drifts. Mode 2 provides more assistance and will kick in at the earliest signs of wheel slip detected.

The electronic brain monitors wheel speed and a host of sensors: the throttle position, crank position and the gear position sensors are constantly monitored and the ECU adjusts the power, ignition advance and air intake according to the scenario.

An useful feature when riding on wet or dirty asphalt, the TCS can be disengaged pressing the left handlebar buttons when going off-road. We're waiting to see the V-Strom 1000 put through off-road ordeals and see whether it lives up to the hype. A really nice bike from Suzuki, anyway!
