The 645cc DOHC V-Twin is a masterpiece of Suzuki engineering. For the new 650, this unit has been tuned for generous low-to-mid-range torque for practical use while maintaining an exhilarating top-end.
The windscreen has been extended to reduce the windblast and buffering to the body, while the shape has been changed to control wind flow.
The high specification two mode traction control system gives you greater confidence on slippery surfaces or in the rain. Mode 1 allows modest rear wheel spin for more advanced, exhilarating riding, while mode 2 activates traction control at the slightest loss of rear-wheel grip.
The newly designed seat lives up to the reputation of the V-Strom comfort. The front of the seat is slim enabling the rider to easily reach the ground when stopping.
