On Earth the road never ends. From tarmac to trail, beach to mountain pass, alleyway to distant highway, every ride is an escape into freedom. Go anywhere, go beyond, on the V-Strom 650XT.

The V-Strom 650XT’s styling reflects world-beating adventure-tourer performance. Its compact form creates a rugged, purposeful profile. Rider comfort is paramount and enhanced by the adjustable windscreen, by heat- and wind-diverting designs and by slim bodywork.

Ready for Adventure
Standard equipment; Spoked wheels, Knuckle guards, accessory bar and aluminium sump guard. All giving you and your V-Strom true adventure style and added protection, whether you’re battling the elements or the terrain.

Dynamic front styling:
A beak-like front cowl reflects Suzuki’s spirit of adventure by evoking memories of the DR-Z ridden in the 1988 Paris-Dakar rally. A painted upper section contains dual multi-reflector headlights for great light distribution. While contrasting black plastic lower/side sections have a rugged surface texture and the front mudguard is shaped for smooth radiator airflow.

The power for freedom:
The V-Strom 650XT’s four-stroke, DOHC, 645cc 90-degree V-twin engine is ready for full range riding enjoyment. It offers the distinctive beat feel of a V-twin, ample torque for easy handling at low and mid-range revs, and powerful performance at the high end of the rev range. A broad power band makes for smooth going on steep mountain passes, open motorways, and crowded city streets.

A chassis tailored for comfortable performance:
The V-Strom 650XT is built on a light, rigid aluminium twin-spar frame and swingarm with proven designs that ensure steady handling and great manoeuvrability. An upright riding position, long-stroke front and rear suspension, and lightweight wire-spoked aluminium rims also help to ensure comfort for adventure touring.

Great wind protection:
The windscreen and compactly shaped bodywork reflect the results of extensive wind-tunnel testing in shapes that give great wind protection for low noise and low rider fatigue. The windscreen is three-way adjustable to suit the rider’s stature, the riding position, and the road conditions.

Superior fuel economy:
Minimised mechanical and frictional losses and optimised combustion efficiency help to keep fuel economy high, so a light, compact 20-litre fuel tank is ample for a class leading riding range between refuelling stops.
