Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
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 650XT Touring is the newest member of the V-Strom family by marrying the looks of the V-Strom 1000, the tubeless-spoke wheels of the V-Strom 650XT, plus a set of Suzuki side cases, a rugged accessory bar, and a centerstand. Even loaded and ready to travel, this V-Strom boasts strong 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.ENGINE
- Using SV650 engineering, the V-Strom’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 new mounting structure, helps the V-Strom 650XT Touring 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 fuel tank has a generous 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.
- The multi-function instrument panel is similar in appearance to the V-Strom 1000 panel but has functions unique to the V-Strom 650XT Touring.
- The instrument set includes an analog tachometer and brightness-adjustable LCD speedometer and control panel.
- LCD readouts include odometer, dual trip meter, traction control modes, gear position, coolant and ambient temperature, fuel consumption, fuel gauge, and clock. Switching between readings can be done with the left handlebar switch.
- Genuine Suzuki Accessories include matching top cases, low- and high-profile seats, heated grips, high-grip foot rests, and more.
- 12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).
