Think of a task, a challenge, an adventure.
The answer to every thought. V-Strom 650.
Available in the following colours
645CC DOHC V-TWIN
The new unit has undergone a rebuild, installing new technology such as the resin-coated pistons, and revising over 60 components of the engine to achieve a higher output in a broad area of the rev-range while keeping the unique V-Twin character with low fuel consumption.
With low fuel consumption combined with the large 20L fuel tank, the riding range between fill-ups are at the top in this class, relieving the rider from the stress of frequent re-fuelling.
Newly designed down-type exhaust system is lighter and closer to the centre of gravity, contributing to nimble handling while being able to accommodate the slim and smart optional luggage system.
The catalysers have been positioned in a tandem configuration achieving the required level for new standards, while successfully gaining exhaust efficiency to boost the output.
DUAL SPARK TECHNOLOGY
Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology, unique in this class, utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precision ignition.
Combined with the newly adopted high-ignition nickel spark plugs, it contributes to increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.
With the new design concept “Solid and Smart”, the new model now has an updated look. Suzuki’s original “Beak” style has been further emphasised by making it a straight line from the tip to the top of the tank, expressing the DNA from the DR-BIG and the desert racer DR-Z. Champion yellow is a new colour for the V-Strom series, relating to the off-road racing scene of Suzuki.
Inheriting the Beak from the original DR-BIG, the V-Strom soars high, out of the city, over the mountains, and over all borders. The heritage from DR-BIG, is now ready to support your adventures, either BIG or daily. DR-BIG being the first Adventure model to have a “Beak”, the V-Strom brand has inherited that distinctive look. With the new design featuring a more direct line from the tip of the beak to the top of the tank.
Contributing in giving the V-Strom 650 a totally new image is the head light and tail lamp, a common feature with the V-Strom 1000. The high and low beam of the light weight headlight is in a compact vertical configuration and realise brightness equivalent to the previous twin head lights, while when on high beam, both low and high bulbs illuminate providing a broader lit up area. The newly featured LED tail lamp, also in kin with its bigger brother, has a high visibility and contributes to weight savings.
The windscreen has been extended 9mm upwards to reduce the windblast and buffering to the body, while the shape has been changed to control the wind flow rather than to simply create a wind-free zone. By making the boundary between the protective area and the not-protective area a blur, the rider will be able to move more freely due to less turbulence and feel a natural wind flow. The screen can also be adjusted to one of three pre-set positions using four screws.
The easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster provides rich information to the rider. The new instrument cluster incorporates a large analogue tachometer and digital readouts for the gear position and speedometer. The digital section below displays the odometer, twin-trip meter, clock, fuel level, coolant temperature, ambient temperature⁴, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes.
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.
Ten spoked cast aluminium wheels are an eye-catching feature for the new V-Strom 650. Not only do they give a sporty image in kin to its V-Strom 1000 ABS brother in the Suzuki Adventure model family, tracking back to the DR-BIG and DR-Z, but improves the road holding ability and reduces weight. Wheel sizes are 19-inch on the front and 17-inch on the rear, realising the perfect balance of stable and nimble handling.
