2017-V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 01

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 02

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 03

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 04

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 05

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 06

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Featue 07

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 08

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 09

ABS-Equipped Brake System

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 11

Rich Information to the rider

By sharing the easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster, along with the cowling design of with its bigger brother, the new 650 now has a wealth of information available 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 temperature, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes. The remaining fuel range continues to display after the fuel gauge shows empty, offering the rider with accurate and comforting information.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 12

12v DC Outlet

With the newly adopted instrument cluster, the V-Strom 650 has gained a 12V DC outlet positioned directly below the instruments as standard equipment, supporting the rider for the use of satellite navigation systems and/or the recharging of mobile devices. An update for convenience especially on long distance touring.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 13

Adventure with the Heritage

By installing the new design cowling with the vertical configuration headlights, sharing the image with the V-Strom 1000, the cowling is noticeably slimmer giving the rider a wider view and therefore a lighter impression when mounted on the seat. The “Beak” giving the image of the DR-BIG heritage, is sharp and slanted forwards motivating the adventure feel while acting as a functional component reducing the uplift by 9%.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 14

The V-Strom Family

With the new design concept “Solid and Smart”, the new model now has an updated look, in kin to its 1037cm3 brother bringing the V-Strom family together. 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. The heritage and history of Suzuki’s adventure models are further expressed, giving the owners pride of ownership.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 15

Controlling the Comfort

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 adjustable preset three positions are also available using four screws.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 16

Slimmer tank, still with a 20L capacity

The redesigned slimmer and smarter tank still holds a capacity of 20L, realising a long riding range combined with the excellent fuel consumption. Also 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 which were positioned directly underneath the seat on the previous model have been slimmed down as well, allowing the rider to reach straight down to the ground, resulting in better access to the ground and more confidence.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 17

Aluminium Twin-Spar Frame

Combination of the light yet rigid aluminium twin-spar frame and swingarm is a feature unique to this class, and with the wide-rage engine, provides light and smooth handling and stability in various riding situations.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 18

Core of 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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 19

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.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 20

New Wheels and Tyres

Ten spoked cast aluminium wheels are an eye-catching feature for the new V-Strom 650. Not only do they give a sporty image in kin to its V-Strom 1000 brother in the Suzuki Adventure model family, tracking back to the DR-BIG and DR-Z, but improves the road holding ability and reduces weight. Wheel sizes are 19-inch on the front and 17-inch on the rear, realising the perfect balance of stable and nimble handling, and the newly installed Bridgestone BATTLAX ADVENTURE A40 tyres, specially developed for the new -V-Strom 650 feature improved stability and grip levels.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 21

Head Light and Tail Lamp

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

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 22

Lighter and Lower Exhaust System

Newly designed down-type exhaust system is lighter and closer to the center of gravity, contributing to nimble handling while being able to accommodate the slim and smart optional luggage system. The catalysers have been positioned in a tandem configuration achieving the required level of emission control for Euro4 emission standards, while successfully gaining exhaust efficiency to boost the output.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 23

Functional Comfort

An important feature on the V-Strom 650 is the ultimately comfortable seat, and although with the new design to match the update in cowling design, the reputation will continue. Also an appeal inherited from the previous model is that the tandem area is parallel with the rear carrier providing a large flat space to securely strap large baggage when needed.

2017 V-Strom-650-ABS Feature 24

Load up and be prepared

With the reputation for its long-distance touring performance sometimes even tandem riding, the optional integrated three-luggage system is an important option to heighten the attraction of the V-Strom 650. The newly designed rear section of the bodywork can now accommodate the same integrated three-luggage system as the V-Strom 1000, therefore no additional brackets or tools are needed to attach/detach the cases. Also mainly benefitting from the new exhaust system, it was possible for the cases to be fitted close to the center of gravity of the body, resulting in minimum effect in handling providing increased maneuverability. All three cases are lockable with the ignition key.
