Suzuki’s venerable V-Strom 650XT, one of the most popular and versatile motorcycles you can buy, is now available in new 2021 colours and there’s a new aluminium pannier kit available to make touring even more convenient.
The 2021 colours are Metallic Oort Grey, Pearl Brilliant White and Candy Daring Red/Glass Sparkle Black colour schemes.
Mechanically unchanged from the 2020 model, the V-Strom 650XT is a soft-core adventure bike available in full power and LAMS versions.
V-twin powered, relaxing to ride all day and capable of taking on everything from commuting to freeways to outback dirt roads, the 650XT has proven popular, practical and excellent value.
The full power version puts out 52kW @8,800rpm with 62Nm of torque @6,500rpm, while the LAMS version is restricted to 35kW.
Features include traction control, an aluminium chassis, ABS and protective bodywork.
Wire-spoked aluminium-alloy rims as standard on the V-Strom 650XT absorb shock effectively at low speeds to promote friendly handling character and are shod with Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A40 tyres.
Genuine Suzuki hand guards and protective engine under cowling are fitted as standard equipment.
For user convenience a 12V DC outlet is positioned directly below the instruments as standard equipment.
Suzuki has also launched the ‘Voyager Pack’, a full set of Genuine Suzuki aluminium luggage; consisting of an extremely tough 38L top box and matching 37L panniers. As a matching system, many features are shared across all three pieces including construction material, stainless steel latches, glass-fibre reinforced plastic corner covers for additional protection and integrated tie-down points. The side case lids are also completely removable via a quick release fastener system for superior access and easy cleaning.
Available now in both powder-coated black and anodised silver finishes for $2,599 plus fitting.
The MY21 V-Strom 650XT and V-Strom 650XT Learner Approved are available now for a Manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $13,490 Ride Away.
