ADVENTURE, IN ALL DIRECTIONS
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.
Resin Coated Pistons
One of the upgraded features in the 645cm3 unit are the resin-coated pistons which is a coating technology to decrease friction in the cylinder, resulting in improved fuel economy and corresponding to latest emission control.
New Exhaust Camshaft
For the unique character of the V-Strom 650, the engine needs to be strong not only at the top end but at the frequently used low to mid-range. To meet these demands.
Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) Fuel-Injection System
Featuring the performance-proven Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (STDV) injection system, each cylinder has two butterfly valves for enhanced power output and efficiency.
Advanced Traction Control System
Inheriting the favoured traction control system from the V-Strom 1000, the new V-Strom 650 is also now equipped with this advanced technology.
Modes For All conditions
The modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one allows modest rear wheel spin for more advanced, exhilarating riding.
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 releasing the clutch or when riding at low rpms.
Suzuki Easy Start System
Conventional starter switches needed to be pressed by the rider until the engine starts, but the new V-Strom 650 and 1000 have adopted the Suzuki Easy Start System enabling the engine to start with one push of the button.
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 provides controllable and dependable stopping performance.
Dual Spark Technology
Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology, unique in this class, utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precise ignition. Combined with the newly adopted high-ignition nickel spark plugs.
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.
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.
Adventure With The Heritage
By installing the new design cowling with the vertical configuration headlights, sharing the image with the V-Strom 1000.
The V-Strom Family
With the new design concept “Solid and Smart”, the new model now has an updated look, in kin to its 1037cm3 brother bringing the V-Strom family together.
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.
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.
Aluminium Twin-Spar Frame
Combination of the light yet rigid aluminium 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.
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.
Flexible and comfortable conventional telescopic forks have a forgiving character, allowing stress free long distance rides to an exciting run on twisty roads.
New Wheels and Tyres
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 brother in the Suzuki Adventure model family.
Head Light and Tail Lamp
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.
Lighter and Lower Exhaust System
Newly designed down-type exhaust system is lighter and closer to the center of gravity, contributing to nimble handling while being able to accommodate the slim and smart optional luggage system.
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.
Load Up and Be Prepared
With the reputation for its long-distance touring performance sometimes even tandem riding, the optional integrated three-luggage system is an important option to heighten the attraction of the V-Strom 650.
