The Ultimate, to Do-It-All
The ultimate tackle to Do-It-All. Every day commuting, rough and wet conditions, B-Road twisties, long highway stretches, two-up comfort, the tool that never lets you down. Think of a task, a challenge, an adventure. The answer to every thought. V-Strom 650XT.
The 645cc DOHC V-Twin is a masterpiece of Suzuki engineering which has an evolving history. For the new 650, this unit has been tuned for generous low-to-mid-range torque for practical use while maintaining an exhilarating top-end.
With two V-Strom 650 variants available, as standard the V-Strom 650XT is fitted with wire spoke wheels for better shock absorption and comfort, as well as knuckle covers and an under cowling.
Long Haul Comfort
The newly designed seat lives up to the reputation of the V-Strom comfort. While securing a wide flat area to support the rider when riding, the front of the seat is slim enabling the rider to easily reach the ground when stopping. Also the pillion seat has a wide and comfortable space, making sure the pillion rider can also enjoy the ride. When viewed from the side the plentiful padding is visually assuring, inviting the rider on a long adventure.
The combination of the light yet rigid aluminium twin-spar frame and swingarm is a feature unique to this class, and with the engine providing such generous mid-range, the V-Strom provides light and smooth handling and stability in various riding situations.
The V-Strom 650XT features tubeless tyres and wire spoke wheels which absorb shock from the road better due to the flexible character of spokes, providing the rider with further comfort and exhilarated riding pleasure. The Champion Yellow coloured model features unique gold-anodised rims in contrast to the black-anodized items on the other colours.
Flexible and comfortable conventional telescopic forks have a forgiving character, allowing stress free long distance rides to an exciting run on twisty roads. The rear suspension is equipped with rebound adjustment and a remote preload adjuster which can be operated by hand allowing the rider to quickly setup the suspension to match the riding style or in a case of two-up riding or with a full load of luggage without any tools needed.
Equipped with 310mm diameter twin discs with twin two piston calipers on the front and a 260mm diameter single disc with a single piston caliper on the rear, the V-Strom 650XT provides controllable and dependable stopping performance.
Slimmer 20L Fuel Tank
The redesigned slimmer and smarter tank still holds a capacity of 20L, allowing a long riding range combined with excellent fuel consumption. By eliminating the plastic covers on both sides of the tank from the previous model, the tank has become slimmer and is now able to accommodate magnetically attachable tank bags. The frame covers have been slimmed down as well, allowing the rider to reach straight down to the ground.
