Street-Smart Sportbike

Here's fuel-injected proof that sportbikes don't have to be one-dimensional.

Introducing the new GSX650F, featuring an ideal balance of sportbike excitement and all-around versatile performance.

It offers crisp handling, so you can turn any winding road into a ride to remember. Its liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine is tuned for strong low-end and midrange power, for smooth and easy riding around town.

Whether you're on the back roads or the open highway, you'll appreciate the GSX650F's comfortable design, including a more upright seating position that makes all-day rides a pleasure. And the GSX650F has one more feature that you'll appreciate - a price tag that will leave you smiling.

Inspired by the GSX-R range, the GSX650F has the dynamic styling of a fully faired sportsbike but offers all day comfort thanks to the cleverly designed riding position. Higher handlebars offer easier handling and coupled with lower footpegs , it becomes the perfect everyday sportsbike with striking looks. A smooth power delivery and great fuel efficiency make for a truly versatile performance fit for road or track.

The low ( 790mm ) seat height makes it easier for the rider to touch the ground at stand still and improved mobility when parking. A GSX-R style clock displays an analogue tachometer, a digital LCD speedometer, fuel gauge and gear positioning indicator



 

2012 Suzuki GSX650F ABS Key Features

Standard ABS braking and Electronic Fuel Injection.

Compact, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, DOHC 656cc engine utilizing a bore and stroke of 65.5 mm x 48.7 mm and featuring strong and easily accessible power and torque.

Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve fuel injection system for smooth acceleration. Fuel injectors are compact and lightweight with 4 hole injectors for optimum fuel atomization and greater power output.

The cylinder head achieves a narrow valve angle of 17 degrees intake and exhaust for high intake and exhaust efficiency.

Cam profiles are chosen with an emphasis on low-to-mid range power output and help to deliver highly accessible performance that is well suited to an entry level rider.

Piston rings are manufactured with ion plating treatment using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) for a smoother surface, increased durability and reduced friction and reduced oil consumption.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coated cylinders deliver high heat dissipation and allow for smaller piston to cylinder clearances.

A large capacity exhaust system utilizes a high capacity catalyzer and an oxygen sensor to meet strict Euro 3 and Tier 2 emissions requirements while still providing strong performance throughout the rpm range.

The GSX650F keeps cool with a high efficiency radiator combined with a 190mm electric cooling fan controlled by the ECM and a high output water pump with a bearing-less design for reduced weight.

New six speed transmission works smoothly with a hydraulic clutch for crisp shifting in a variety of riding conditions.
