Suzuki | Way of Life!


Gathering followers with its versatility and friendly nature, the V-Strom 650 has earned the respect by many riders as an excellent touring machine. It is truly a masterpiece with the ultimate balance provided by the natural riding position, comfortable seat and the flexible engine character allowing stress-free riding anything from daily use to long distance adventure touring. The latest generation receives a boost in engine performance while conforming to Euro4(BS IV) emission standards. All the small updates, including weight savings, has further developed the V-Strom to be more versatile, more controllable, more accessible, and has uplifted its total performance to proudly announce that it is simply “More V-Strom”.

The XT Cross-Touring variant comes fitted with wire spoked wheels, hand guards and engine under cowling as standard. 


Adventure with the Heritage

By installing the new design cowling with the vertical configuration headlights, sharing the image with the V-Strom 1000, the cowling is noticeably slimmer giving the rider a wider view and therefore a lighter impression when mounted on the seat. The “Beak” giving the image of the DR-BIG heritage, is sharp and slanted forwards motivating the adventure feel while acting as a functional component reducing the uplift by 9%.

Sophisticated V-Twin Performance

The famous 645cm3 V-Twin powerplant has undergone an update, installing new technology such as the resin-coated pistons, and revising over 60 engine components 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 refuelling.

Rich Information to the rider

By sharing the easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster, along with the cowling design of with its bigger brother, the new 650 now has a wealth of information available 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 temperature, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes. The remaining fuel range continues to display after the fuel gauge shows empty, offering the rider with accurate and comforting information.

Wire Spoked Wheels and New Tyres

The V-Strom 650XT features tubeless tyre applicable wire spoked 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-anodised items on the other colour schemes. Wheel sizes are 19-inch on the front and 17-inch on the rear, realising the perfect balance of stable and nimble handling, and the newly installed Bridgestone BATTLAX ADVENTURE A40 tyres, specially developed for the new -V-Strom 650 feature improved stability and grip levels.

Advanced Traction Control System

Inheriting the favored traction control system from the V-Strom 1000, the new V-Strom 650 ABS/XT ABS now also is equipped with this advanced technology. This system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position, crank position, and gear position with various sensors, and controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery. The traction control system can be switched to either of two modes, or off. The modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one allows modest rear wheel spin for more advanced, exhilarating riding, while mode two activates traction control at the slightest loss of rear-wheel grip to give you greater confidence on slippery surfaces or in the rain. The choice of modes can be quickly and easily made by selecting the traction control mode from the left switch cluster and confirming it with a glance at the instruments. In difficult riding situations such as cold or ragged road surfaces, fully loaded with luggage, or with a pillion rider, this advanced system already established on the V-Strom 1000 shall back up the ride. Note: Traction control system is not a substitute for rider’s throttle control under the various conditions, and traction control cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, or while braking, and it does not control front wheel traction.

Modes for all conditions

The modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one allows modest rear wheel spin for more advanced, exhilarating riding, while mode two activates traction control at the slightest loss of rear-wheel grip to give you greater confidence on slippery surfaces or in the rain. The choice of modes can be quickly and easily made by selecting the traction control mode from the left switch cluster and confirming it with a glance at the instruments. In difficult riding situations such as cold or ragged road surfaces, fully loaded with luggage, or with a pillion rider, this proven system shall back up the ride.

ABS-Equipped Brake System

Equipped with 310mm diameter twin discs with twin two piston calipers on the front and a 260mm diameter single disk with a single piston caliper on the rear, the V-Strom 650 ABS and 650XT ABS provides controllable and dependable stopping performance. Also the compact and light-weight ABS, to avoid wheel lock caused by excess hard braking, has been upgraded to the next generation with advanced settings for a further natural feel and secure activation. Note: ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

Low RPM Assist

By adopting the new Low RPM assist system, the concern of an unexpected engine stall has been relieved. This system will automatically raise the idle speed when engaging the clutch or when riding at low rpms, assisting frequent clutch work in congested town rides and preventing sudden and unexpected engine stall when running in the low rpm range.

Controlling the Comfort

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 adjustable preset three positions are also available using four screws.

12v DC Outlet

With the newly adopted instrument cluster, the V-Strom 650 has gained a 12V DC outlet positioned directly below the instruments as standard equipment, supporting the rider for the use of satellite navigation systems and/or the recharging of mobile devices. An update for convenience especially on long distance touring.

Core of 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.

Aluminum Twin-Spar Frame

Combination of the light yet rigid aluminum twin-spar frame and swingarm is a feature unique to this class, and with the wide-rage engine, provides light and smooth handling and stability in various riding situations.

Supple Suspension

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.

Functional Comfort

An important feature on the V-Strom 650 is the ultimately comfortable seat, and although with the new design to match the update in cowling design, the reputation will continue. Also an appeal inherited from the previous model is that the tandem area is parallel with the rear carrier providing a large flat space to securely strap large baggage when needed.

Slimmer tank, still with a 20L capacity

The redesigned slimmer and smarter tank still holds a capacity of 20L, realising a long riding range combined with the excellent fuel consumption. Also 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 which were positioned directly underneath the seat on the previous model have been slimmed down as well, allowing the rider to reach straight down to the ground, resulting in better access to the ground and more confidence.
