Suzuki V-Strom 650XT in dealers

Published: 08 January 2015

Suzuki’s new V-Strom 650XT has arrived in dealer showrooms to add another model to the V-Strom 650 range.

The XT is based on the standard V-Strom 650 but has lightweight DID wire-spoked wheels for increased strength when being ridden on unpaved roads, a new beak based on the larger V-Strom 1000 and increased airflow to the radiator.

The XT model also gets handguards, an aluminium sump protector and engine bars all add to the overall protection and tougher style of the bike.

Suzuki GB Marketing Manager Rob Cooper commented, "The XT version of the popular V-Strom 650 builds on the original bike's proven platform as a comfortable and capable adventure-tourer, but adds new levels of practicality with the wire wheels and other added extras, helping maintain the V-Strom's position as the best dual-purpose machine in this sector of the market."

The V-Strom 650XT is available in Suzuki dealers now with an price of £7499. Additional accessories, including aluminium luggage and Vario touring screen, are also available at extra cost.
