Unveiled at Intermot last year, the Suzuki V-Strom 650XT is now available for sale in UK showrooms for £7,499. Changes to the standard V-Strom include a beak, because beaks are cool, as well as wire spoke wheels for better off road ability – though it still uses the same tires which are more on-road than off. Other features now include knuckle guards, an accessory/crash bar and aluminium sump guard.
According to Rob Cooper of Suzuki Great Britain, the XT “builds on the original bike’s proven platform as a comfortable and capable adventure-tourer, but adds new levels of practicality with the wire wheels and other added extras, helping maintain the V-Strom’s position as the best dual-purpose machine in this sector of the market.”
Additional accessories including aluminium luggage and Vario touring screen, are also available. The windscreen is three-way adjustable and like the standard V-Strom, has a 20 litre fuel tank. Check out the promotional video below:
