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.

GTA Extras

As standard the V-Strom 650X GTA is fitted with genuine 3 piece aluminium luggage for the ultimate adventure, including a top case (38L capacity), and side cases (37L capacity each case).

XT Extras

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.

Aluminium Frame

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.

New Wheels

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.

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.

Brake System

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.

Solid and Smart

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.

BIG Heritage, BIG Adventures

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.

Adventure Lighting

Contributing in giving the V-Strom 650XT a totally new image is the head light and tail lamp, a common feature with the V-Strom 1000XT. 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.

Optimised Screen Design

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.

Clean and Clear

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.
