The V-Strom 650 is known for its versatility, reliability, and value, and has attracted many cyclists who use it for touring, commuting, or fun rides when they are smart. The 2019 V-Strom 650 Suzuki Adventure Bike has the outline of the V-Strom 1000, unifying the V-Strom series. Many engineering technologies have resulted in a lighter body and a lighter shape, resulting in V-Strom, which has more uses, more controllability, and smoother operation, which can improve its overall performance, so it is merely “more V-Strom.” That’s what the rider wants: more enjoyable rides.
2019 V-Strom 650 Suzuki Adventure Bike – Features and Price
The liquid-cooled 645cc, 90-degree V-cylinder engine can provide powerful torque in the low and medium speed range. It also offers durable high-speed power, which is very suitable for any riding task. Suzuki’s advanced traction control system, secure start system, low RPM assist function, and ABS technology makes 2019 V-Strom 650 Suzuki Adventure Bike a great and incredible motorcycle.
The versatile, adjustable lighting instrument panel provides the rider with a wealth of information in a concise manner and helps when setting up rider assist functions. Active fairings, vertically stacked headlights, adjustable windshields, and the iconic Suzuki DR-Big styling add true adventure style and real-world functionality. The sturdy and lightweight chassis has integrated mounting points and can be used in the unified Suzuki V-Strom suitcase, which can easily slip off and keep the motorcycle trim while preparing to travel.
The Suzuki V-Strom 650’s DOHC liquid-cooled engine has been tuned using the SV650 engineering technology to provide clean, mighty power at any rpm. Low-friction resin-coated pistons and SCEM-coated cylinders help provide high mileage for leading travel ranges. The new design of the hood hardware and other selected fasteners allows the use of Torx or traditional hexagonal tools.
The smooth 2-in-1 exhaust system is routed under the chassis to reduce weight, concentrate mass and provide space for the narrow tail (and optional luggage compartment). The exhaust system has dual catalysts and uses oxygen feedback to the EFI system to produce the best combustion efficiency and reduce emissions to unbelievably low levels.
The fuel injection system uses Suzuki’s innovative SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle) on the 39mm throttle body. The auxiliary throttle is controlled by a servo motor to achieve smooth power transmission. The ten-hole long-nozzle injector on each throttle body improves fuel atomization, thereby improving combustion efficiency while reducing fuel consumption.
Suzuki’s patented Integrated Throttle Idle Speed Control (TI-ISC) stabilizes the engine idle speed and helps reduce emissions. The new system is extremely compact and lightweight. An all-new TI-ISC on the V-Strom 650 has Suzuki’s low-speed assist function, which can seamlessly adjust the engine speed during take-off and low-speed driving to smoothly output power. It also helps reduce the possibility of cyclists stalling the motorcycle.
The engine control module (ECM) provides the most advanced engine management. It has enhanced settings to fit newer intake and exhaust systems, thereby improving fuel economy and linear throttle response. The engine has dual spark technology nozzles. Each cylinder is equipped with two high-energy, elongated electrode spark plugs, contributing to combustion efficiency and power generation.
The 2019 V-Strom 650 Suzuki Adventure Bike is equipped with Suzuki’s advanced traction control system, which allows the rider to monitor the throttle with more confidence under various driving conditions. If wheel slip is detected, it will continuously monitor front and rear wheel speed, throttle opening, engine speed, and selected gearbox to adjust the engine output.
There are three different traction control modes (1, 2, and OFF). The difference between these two modes is their sensitivity to road conditions. Method 1 is the lowest level of sensitivity and is most suitable for skilled riders or under conditions with excellent road grip (riding on the right, flat roads). Mode 2 is the highest sensitivity level and is ideal for road conditions where the grip may be limited (wet or cold surfaces). OFF disconnects all traction control functions.
This V-Strom also has a Suzuki secure start system. When the transmission is in neutral, the rider can start the motorcycle by briefly pressing the start button without pulling in the clutch handle. On both sides of the compact radiator are wind direction plates, which increase the cooling efficiency and remove heat from the cyclist’s legs out of the side vents. The six-speed gearbox is suitable for sports riding, has a strict 1 to 5-speed ratio and a higher top gear (6 speed), and can be used for highway cruising.
The beak-shaped fairing has vertically stacked headlights and a sturdier internal structure, which helps the V-Strom 650 to shield the wind and thus protect the fashion of the rider. The three-way height-adjustable windshield has been tested in a wind tunnel to reduce wind noise, chatter, and rider fatigue. The V-Strome comes with a large fuel tank with a carrying capacity of 5.3 gallons, but the rear is thinner and can flow into a smaller seat, which helps the rider land on the dock.
The internal structure and cover of the fuel tank have been updated so that 49 states and California have the same gasoline capacity. The spacious two-seater seat combines a smooth and non-slip surface with an embossed V-Strom logo. The lightweight 10-spoke cast wheel is used in conjunction with Adventure-spec Bridgestone BATTLAX 19-inch front and 17-inch rear tubeless radial tires to achieve overall excellent performance.
The front dual 310mm disc brakes and the rear 260mm disc brakes provide a controlled braking force. The compact anti-lock braking system ABS; system monitors the wheel speed to match the braking to the available traction. The lightweight resin luggage rack has easy-to-grip grab bars and is aligned with the passenger area of the seat, offering the vast surface for transporting cargo or luggage.
The appearance of the multi-function instrument panel is similar to the V-Strom 1000 group, but it has the unique functions of 2019 V-Strom 650 Suzuki Adventure Bike. The instrument includes an analog tachometer, an LCD speedometer with adjustable brightness, and a control panel. LED indicators include ABS warning and freeze warning icons, and an air temperature display to warn of possible icy road conditions.
LCD readings include odometer, dual trip meter, traction control mode, gear, coolant, and ambient temperature, fuel consumption, fuel gauge, and clock. Switching between readings can be done through the left handlebar switch. The powerful three-phase charging system can supply 10Ah maintenance-free batteries, which is easy to start and provides additional accessory power. The particular fuse is located under the seat.
As you ride into the middle of the night, the stacked 65/55-watt halogen headlights illuminate the road. The LED taillights and brake lights are bright and resistant to vibration. Turn signal lights use fluorescent amber bulbs and transparent lenses. A convenient 12-volt DC accessory socket is installed on the central dashboard.
Original Suzuki accessories include side and top covers, engine guards, low and high-profile seats, heated handles, handguards, etc. This bike comes with a 12 months limited warranty. Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP) can provide longer coverage and other benefits.
