2019 Suzuki V-Strom 650
Renowned for its versatility, reliability, and value, the V-Strom 650 has attracted many riders who use it for touring, commuting, or a fun ride when the spirit moves them. It is a touchstone motorcycle balanced with a natural riding position, comfortable seat, and a flexible engine character that produces stress-free riding during brief daily use or a high-mile adventure. The 2019 V-Strom 650 shares the profile of the V-Strom 1000, unifying the V-Strom family. This V-Strom has stellar engine performance and great fuel economy while achieving worldwide emission standards. A number of engineering accomplishments result in low weight and a thin chassis, producing a V-Strom that is more versatile, more controllable, and more accessible to elevate its total performance so it’s simply “more V-Strom.” And that’s what a rider wants: more of a good ride.

Where the horizon ends, the adventure begins. Whether it’s a long-distance quest or a short-distance journey, the V-Strom is the versatile machine designed for the spirit of discovery.
- Using SV650 engineering, the V-Strom 650’s DOHC, liquid-cooled engine has been tuned to deliver clean, strong power at any rpm.
- Low-friction resin-coated pistons and SCEM-coated cylinders help deliver high mileage for class-leading touring range.
- Engine cover hardware and select other fasteners are of a new design that permits the use of Torx or conventional hex-style tools.
- The beak-style fairing, with vertically stacked headlights and a stronger internal structure, helps the V-Strom 650 cut through the wind, protecting the rider in style.
- The three-way height-adjustable windscreen was wind-tunnel tested to reduce wind sounds, buffeting, and rider fatigue.

- The instrument set includes an analog tachometer and brightness-adjustable LCD speedometer and control panel.
