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 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”.

slide 1

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.

slide 2

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. Special L-shaped piston rings are also installed for enhanced sealing performance and blow-by gas reduction, all resulting in meeting up-to-date regulations while improving the output and the ease of use.

slide 3

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, a new high lift exhaust camshaft – that was developed for the new SV650 – has been installed, resulting in a boost in torque and power in the mid-to-high rev-range, providing the rider with an exciting ride when riding sportingly, and a stress-free character for daily rides or on a long haul, simply enhancing the attractions of the new model.

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. One butterfly valve is directly linked to the riders throttle control while the other butterfly valve is controlled by the ECM and operates according to information from the throttle position sensor, engine speed sensor and gear position sensor for optimum intake flow, realising an efficient and smooth power delivery with ample torque at low revs. Idle speed control is also a feature, supporting a steady idle speed and fewer emission. The injectors have been upgraded to a 10-hole type with a long nozzle for further efficiency.

slide 5

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. 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.

slide 6

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.

slide 7

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, assisting frequent clutch work in congested city rides and preventing sudden and unexpected engine stalling when riding in the low rpm range.

slide 8

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.

slide 9

ABS-Equipped Brake System,/h4>

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. 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.

slide 10

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, it contributes to increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.
