I use it to lift the rear of my Cagiva Gran Canyon 900 (pic below), which looking up the specs is a little heavier dry weight than a DL1000. It is really a question of is there a good place to put the Trail Stand that it will not slip. I'm not sure on the V Strom. And with bikes this heavy it is difficult to lift it and place the stand at the same time. It can be done but I recommend you get someone to help for safety. It is really intended for more of the offroad type dualsports like a DRZ400, XR650, DR650, KLR650 up to a SE950.
I hook it on the passenger footpeg mount on the Cagiva (the triangle shaped mount that holds the foot peg) to lift the rear wheel. Since it doesn't have a good place like a frame under the engine.
