Renowned for versatility, reliability, and value, Suzuki’s V-Strom 650 models have attracted many riders who use their motorcycles for touring, commuting, or a fun ride when the spirit moves them. These are touchstone motorcycles 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 2021 V-Strom 650XT Adventure combines the look and Champion Yellow color of Suzuki’s iconic DR-BIG rally bike with tubeless-spoke wheels with gold-anodized rims, plus a set of Suzuki’s aluminum panniers, a rugged accessory bar, a handlebar cross-brace, and mirror extensions.
Loaded and ready for any road, the V-Strom 650XT Adventure continues the V-Strom family tradition of being a fun and logical motorcycle to buy and ride. The engine delivers stellar performance and great fuel economy while achieving worldwide emission standards. Suzuki’s engineering accomplishments also include low weight and a trim chassis, creating a V-Strom 650XT Adventure that is versatile, controllable, and financially accessible.
The V-Strom 650XT Adventure is a motorcycle that’s greater than the sum of its parts, offering versatility, reliability, and function like no other bike in its class. Check out a V-Strom 650XT Adventure for your next ride and you’ll see it checks off every box on your exploration list. This V-Strom is so ready for adventure, all that’s needed is you and a map.
Liquid-cooled, 645cc, 90-degree, V-twin engine delivers strong torque in the low- to mid-rpm range, yet provides a strong rush of high-rpm power that’s ideal for any riding mission.
Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System*, Easy Start System, Low RPM Assist feature, plus ABS** technology make a great motorcycle really incredible.
ADV fairing, with vertically stacked headlights and adjustable windshield, houses a multifunction, illumination-adjustable instrument panel that delivers a wealth of information.
The strong and light chassis carries Suzuki V-Strom aluminum panniers that are easy to slide on and off, which keeps the motorcycle trim for short jaunts.
Dressed for real adventure with a new, iconic Champion Yellow paint scheme, this V-Strom has spoke-style wheels with gold-anodized aluminum rims that carry tubeless radial dual-sport tires, hand guards, and a protective lower engine cowl.
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.
Unique engine cover hardware and select fasteners are designed to permit the use of Torx or conventional hex-style tools.
The sleek 2-into-1 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.
The fuel-injection system employs Suzuki’s innovative SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) on 39mm throttle bodies. The secondary throttle valves are controlled by a servo motor for smooth power delivery.
Ten-hole, long-nose-type fuel injectors on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency while reducing fuel consumption.
Suzuki’s patented Throttle-body Integrated Idle Speed Control (TI-ISC) stabilizes the engine idle speed and helps lower emissions. The system is compact and lightweight.
The TI-ISC on the V-Strom 650XT Adventure has Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist feature that seamlessly adjusts engine speed during takeoff and low-speed riding to smooth the power delivery. It also helps reduce the possibility of the rider stalling the motorcycle.
The Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has enhanced settings to suit the updated intake and exhaust systems, resulting in better fuel economy and linear throttle response.
The engine has dual spark technology heads with two high-energy, slim electrode spark plugs per cylinder, which aid in combustion efficiency and power production.
The V-Strom 650XT Adventure is equipped with Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System*, which lets the rider control the throttle with more confidence in various riding conditions. It continuously monitors front and rear wheel speeds, throttle opening, engine speed, and the selected transmission gear to adjust engine output if wheel spin is detected.
There are three traction control modes (1, 2, and OFF), and the difference between the modes is their sensitivity to road conditions. Mode 1 is lowest sensitivity level, most suitable for skilled riders or in conditions that have good road surface grip (riding on good, smooth roads). Mode 2 is highest sensitivity level, suitable for road conditions where the grip may be limited (wet or cold surfaces). OFF disengages all traction control features.
This V-Strom also features the Suzuki Easy Start System, which lets the rider start the motorcycle with a momentary press of the start button without pulling in the clutch lever when the transmission is in neutral.
The compact radiator is flanked by wind-directing plates that enhance cooling efficiency and direct heat out of the side vents away from the rider’s legs.
The six-speed transmission suits sporty rides with tight first through fifth gear ratios and a tall top gear (sixth gear) for highway cruising.
Low-maintenance, long-life sealed O-ring drive chain is standard.
The beak-style fairing, with vertically stacked headlights and new mounting structure, helps the V-Strom 650XT Adventure 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 internal construction and cap of the fuel tank are updated so the gasoline capacity is the same for both the 49-state and California versions.
The spacious two-up seat combines smooth and slip-resistant surfaces, plus an embossed V-Strom logo.
Lightweight, rigid twin-spar aluminum frame and swingarm contribute to smooth handling performance and excellent stability.
Spring-preload-adjustable 43mm front forks and link-type rear suspension are combined with a rebound damping adjustment and hand-operated spring preload adjuster.
Spoke-style wheels, with gold anodized aluminum rims laced with stainless steel spokes, absorb shock from irregular road surfaces well and accept tubeless tires.
Adventure-spec Bridgestone Battlax 19-inch front and 17-inch rear tubeless radial tires are mounted to the spoke-style wheels for all-around good performance.
Front dual 310mm disc brakes and a rear 260mm disc brake deliver controlled stopping power.
Compact Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)** monitors wheel speed to match braking to available traction.
The lightweight resin luggage rack incorporates easy-to-grasp grab bars and aligns with the passenger section of the seat, offering a larger surface for carrying cargo or luggage.
The V-Strom 650XT Adventure is ready to carry the gear you need as it is equipped with Suzuki’s ADV-style, 37-liter aluminum panniers that attach to powder-coated, stainless steel carriers. Fashioned out of 1.5mm thick aluminum plate with super-strong, no-pierce rivet technology, these panniers offer a number of features, including hinged lids that stay in place when open, internal and external tie-down points, plus keyed stainless steel latches and quick-release hardware. Built to be waterproof with rubber-sealing lids, these panniers have powder-coated interiors that avoid aluminum stains on cargo.
Other Adventure features include a handlebar cross-brace that’s an excellent foundation to mount accessories like a GPS, plus mirror extensions so you see less of you and more of what’s behind you.
The V-Strom 650XT Adventure also comes with a rugged accessory bar, hand guards, and a protective lower engine cowl.
The multifunction instrument panel features brightness-adjustable LED backlighting for its large diameter analog tachometer, digital speedometer, and LCD data display.
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.
LED indicators include an ABS alert and a freeze warning icon, which together with the air temperature display warn of possible icy road conditions.
Strong three-phase charging system supplies the 10Ah maintenance-free battery for easy starting and additional accessory power. A dedicated accessory fuse is located under the seat.
The stacked, 65/55-watt halogen headlamps illuminate the road when your ride stretches into night.
The LED tail and brake light is bright and vibration resistant. The turn signals use bright amber incandescent bulbs with clear lenses.
A handy 12-volt DC accessory outlet is mounted on the inner dash.
Genuine Suzuki Accessories for the V-Strom 650XT Adventure includes a matching top case, center-stand, auxiliary lights, low- and high-profile seats, heated grips, high-grip foot rests, fuel-cap mount tank bags, and more.
Additional lock tumblers that match the bike’s ignition key are included, so you can change over to Suzuki’s accessory side and top cases, and have the convenience of same-key operation.
• NOTE: The supplied aluminum panniers use a different key than the motorcycle’s ignition key.
12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).
*The traction control system is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Nor can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
