Certification documents may seem a bit dry at first glance, but they often reveal future motorcycle models.  So, too, in this case.  Documents from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) list four Suzuki V-Strom 800 models for 2024. Now the first pictures have also surfaced.

What’s behind the CARB documents?

CARB’s main concern is emissions issues.  Therefore, the documents often list different models that use the same engine.  In the current case, it’s all about the 776cc parallel-twin engine that Suzuki first introduced in the GSX-8S and V-Strom 800DE models in 2023 and now looks set to power another model.


New models on the radar

A look at the document in question reveals that four different machines with this engine will be approved for sale in California in 2024.  One important piece of info: if a motorcycle is approved by CARB for California, it usually finds its way to the entire U.S. market and usually to Europe as well.  California has particularly strict emissions regulations, so approval in that state usually means the vehicle can be sold elsewhere.  Models mentioned in the document include the V-Strom 800DE Adventure, the V-Strom 800DE, the V-Strom 800 and the GSX-8S.


Known and unknown models

The V-Strom 800DE and V-Strom 800DE Adventure models were first presented at EICMA 2022.  The GSX-8S was also presented there and all three models have the same engine installed.

Also listed on the document is a model called the V-Strom 800.  It is rumored that the model was primarily designed for road use and presumably equipped with alloy wheels accordingly.  A 19-inch front wheel is then likely to be fitted at the front instead of the 21-inch variant of the V-Strom 800DE and V-Strom 800DE Adventure.


Still in the dark

Although Suzuki has currently not released any official information, it should be clear that another model is coming.

So far, Suzuki has also not released any updates for the 2024 models of the V-Strom 800DE and V-Strom 800DE Adventure.  Whether this announcement will coincide with the launch of the new V-Strom 800 remains to be seen.
