SUZUKI V STROM 650XT OVERVIEW

Suzuki has launched the much-awaited V-Strom 650XT BS6 in India at a price range of Rs. 8.84 lakh. The bike will be offered in Champion Yellow No.2 and Pearl Glacier White colour options. With both front and rear disc brakes, Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT comes up with anti-locking braking system. This V-Strom 650 XT bike weighs 216 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 20 liters.

Suzuki Motorcycle India’s middleweight adventure tourer, the V-Strom 650 XT has received mechanical upgrades to comply with the BS6-compliant emission norms. The styling, however, has remained unaltered during the BS6 transition.

Thus, the Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT BS6 retains the vertically-stacked headlamp, beak-like front faring, a tall windscreen, knuckle guards, and an LED taillamp. The motorcycle is available in two colours – Champion Yellow and Pearl Glacier White. The feature list, too, remains identical to the old model and the V-Strom 650 XT BS6 continues to pack a halogen headlight setup, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and tubeless tyre compatible wire-spoke wheels.

Mechanical specifications include a 645cc, 90-degree, V-twin, liquid-cooled, BS6 compliant engine that makes 70bhp and 62Nm. The motor is linked to a six-speed transmission.

Electronic rider aids like three levels of switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS come as standard. The settings can be altered to suit the rider via the bike’s analogue-digital instrument console.

The cycle parts, similar to the BS4 motorcycle, continue to include telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock to perform the suspension tasks. The braking setup comprises twin rotors at the front and a single disc at the back while the safety net includes dual-channel ABS and a three-level traction control system.

Given the price, the bikes are expected to come to India via the CKD route and be assembled alongside the GSX-S750 and Hayabusa. At this price point, the V-Strom 650 is more expensive than the Kawasaki Versys 650 but is more off-road capable and offers more kit as well.
