Suzuki has officially launched the BS6 version of its highly rated V-Strom 650 XT motorbike. The V-Strom 650 XT is Suzuki’s first BS6 big bike to go on sale across only few Asian markets including India. According to various open source the BS6 V-Strom 650 XT in Nepal is expected to be launched by the end of this year or beginning of next year. Despite the increase in price, the V-Strom 650 XT has nothing new to offer for those who are looking forward to it. Though the company is confident that this cleaner and greener motorcycle will continue to win people’s hearts with its performance and quality in riding.
The new Suzuki V-Strom 650XT 2020 is powered by a liquid-cooled 645cc V-Twin engine that complies with Euro 5 / BS6 and delivers 69 hp with a maximum torque of 62 Nm. The 649cc 90 degree V-twin engine now meets emissions standards, but the V-Strom 650 offers the same features and design as before. Maximum power numbers are also the same, with 71 hp at 8,800 rpm and 62 Nm of torque now being produced 200 rpm earlier at 6,300 rpm. The motorcycle offered 69 hp and 62 Nm of maximum torque in its BS4 version. The Suzuki V-Strom 650XT now features Suzuki easy start system for quick starts.
The mid-weight tour motorbike V-Storm 650XT comes with a two-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) and a three-position traction control system (two modes can be deactivated). The bike comes with an LCD console and a halogen lamp same as featured in BS4 bikes. The BS6 V-Strom 650 is available in two colour options Champion Yellow No. 2 and Glacier White. The Ultimate Adventure Tour proved it's value in road touring capabilities while exploring different terrains. It is truly a masterpiece with the ultimate balance provided by the natural riding position, comfortable seat and the flexible engine character.
