o Öhlins NIX-30 forks
o Öhlins TTX 36 shock absorber
o Öhlins steering damper
o Aluminium forged wheels
o Lithium-ion battery

Most people would not call the base suspension good, but whether one should go for the S or just upgrade the suspension and wheels for the price difference between the base and the S is a personal choice. Lot of opinions on that subject.
There are some cosmetic differences between the V4 and the V4S. The V4S has a black front fender (red for the V4) and has red wheel stripes (none on the V4). And the Ohlins forks have a golden finish (steel finish on the Sachs of the V4). Minor stuff but noticeable upon a close scrutiny.

V4 doesn’t have Sachs forks btw. They are big piston Showas

Sorry about that mix-up - Sachs shock at the back and Showa BPF at the front.
