Save over $700 on this new 2019 V Strom 650 ABS. Lots of updates this year with engine and 2019 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS MORE ADVENTURE, SIMPLY MORE V-STROM. 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 2018 V-Strom 650 now mimics the looks of the V-Strom 1000, unifying the V-Strom family. This V-Strom has increased engine performance and great fuel economy while achieving world-wide emission standards. A number of other updates, including weight savings and a thinner chassis, has resulted in 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. Features may include: ENGINE The V-Strom’s DOHC, liquid-cooled engine has new camshafts to deliver clean, strong power at any RPM. New, low-friction resin-coated pistons and SCEM-coated cylinders help delivers high mileage for class-leading touring range. A new, sleek two-into-one exhaust system routes below the chassis to reduce weight, centralize mass, and provide space for a narrow tail section (and optional luggage). The exhaust system has twin catalyzers and employs O2 feedback to the EFI system to produce optimum combustion efficiency and reduce emissions to an incredibly low level. TRANSMISSION The 6-speed transmission suits sporty rides with tight 1st through 5th gear ratios and a tall top gear (6th gear) for highway cruising. Low-maintenance, long-life sealed O-ring drive chain is standard. CHASSIS New beak-style fairing, with vertically stacked headlights and new mounting structure helps the V-Strom 650 cut through the wind, protecting the rider in style. The new 3-way height-adjustable windscreen was wind-tunnel tested to reduce wind sounds, buffeting and rider fatigue. The new fuel tank maintains its 5.3 gallon capacity, but is shaped to be thin at the rear to flow into the slimmer seat which aids the rider in touching the ground at stops. ELECTRICAL TThe new multi-function instrument panel is similar in appearance to the V-Strom 1000 panel, but has functions unique to the V-Strom 650. The instrument includes an analog tachometer and brightness-adjustable LCD speedometer and control panel.
