The Suzuki V Strom 650 is a mid-weight, sport touring motorcycle made by Suzuki since 2004, in its third generation since the model year 2017. It has a standard riding posture, fuel injection, an aluminium chassis, and marketed in Europe, Oceania, the Americas, and since 2018 in India. The DL650 was manufactured at Suzuki’s final assembly plant in Toyokawa, Japan.
Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT comes up with an anti-locking braking system with both front and rear disc brakes. This V-Strom 650 XT bike weighs 216 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 20liters. 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. The V-Strom 650 XT BS6 continues to pack a halogen headlight setup, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and tubeless tyres.
Mechanical specifications include a 645cc, 90-degree, V-twin, liquid-cooled, BS6 compliant engine that makes 70bhp and 62Nm. The motor links to a six-speed transmission. Electronic rider aids like three levels of switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS come as standard. The settings alter to suit the rider via the bike’s analogue-digital instrument console.
The cycle parts are similar to the BS4 motorcycle, continuing to include telescopic front forks and a rear mono-shock 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.
