suzuki V Strom 650

V-Twin Performance

 

The 645cc DOHC V-Twin is a masterpiece of Suzuki engineering which has an evolving history. 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 new unit has undergone a rebuild, installing new technology such as the resin-coated pistons, and revising over 60 components of the engine to achieve a higher output in a broad area of the rev-range while keeping the unique V-Twin character with low fuel consumption. With low fuel consumption combined with the large 20L fuel tank, the riding rage between fill-ups are at the top in this class, relieving the rider from the stress of frequent re-fuelling.

Distinctive Feel

 

For the unique character of the V-Strom 650, the engine needs to be strong not only at the top end but at the frequently used low to mid-range. To meet these demands, the new engine has an original intake camshaft with equally lengthened intake ports, while for the exhaust camshaft, has newly adopted the item from the new SV650 road model which are higher lifting compared to the previous V-Strom 650. These new features and a total set-up has resulted in a boost in torque and power in the mid to high rev-range, providing the rider with an exciting ride when with a sporty feel, and a stress-free character for daily rides or on a long haul.

Exhaust System

 

Newly designed down-type exhaust system is lighter and closer to the centre of gravity, contributing to nimble handling while being able to accommodate the slim and smart optional luggage system. The catalysers have been positioned in a tandem configuration achieving the required level for new standards, while successfully gaining exhaust efficiency to boost the output.

Resin Coated Pistons

One of the upgraded features in the 645cc unit are the resin-coated pistons which is a coating technology to decrease friction in the cylinder, resulting in improved fuel economy and corresponding to latest emission control. Special L-shaped piston rings are also installed for enhanced sealing performance and blow-by gas reduction, all resulting in meeting up-to-date regulations while improving the output and the ease of use.

Dual Spark Technology

Suzuki’s Dual Spark Technology, unique in this class, utilises two spark plugs per cylinder for precision ignition. Combined with the newly adopted high-ignition nickel spark plugs, it contributes to increased combustion efficiency, smoother power delivery, lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.
