2021 Suzuki V-Strom 650A : MORE ADVENTURE, SIMPLY MORE V-STROM..
Introducing the 2021 Suzuki V-Strom 650A…
Renowned for its versatility, reliability and value, the V-Strom 650 has attracted many riders who use it for touring, commuting, or a fun ride when the spirit moves them. It is a touchstone motorcycle 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. This new V-Strom has increased engine performance and great fuel economy while achieving world-wide emission standards. A number of other updates, including weight savings, a thinner chassis, and some adventure-ready extras has resulted in a V-Strom that is more versatile, more controllable, and more accessible to elevate its total performance so it’s simply “More V-Strom”. And that’s what a rider wants; more of a good ride.
＊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.
Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
＊The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.

2021 Suzuki V-Strom 650A Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
THE LUXURY RIDE
The unbeatable comfort of the seat and natural riding position are not the only things that makes the ride such a luxury.
The stress free nature of the engine, the super-neutral handling, the acceptability of the whole bike is at a premium balance.
As the miles build up, the difference is obvious and the love will grow.
HEADLIGHTS AND TAILLIGHTS
Contributing in giving the V-Strom 650 image is the headlights and tail light, a common feature with the V-Strom 1000. The high and low beam of the light weight headlight is in a compact vertical configuration and realize brightness equivalent to the previous twin headlights, while when on high beam, both low and high bulbs illuminate providing a broader lit up area. The featured LED tail light, also in kin with its bigger brother, has a high visibility and contributes to weight savings
By sharing the easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster, along with the cowling image with its bigger brother, the V-Strom 650 has rich information with a quality design. The instrument cluster incorporates a large analogue tachometer and digital readouts for the gear position and speedometer. The digital section below displays the odometer, twin-trip meter, clock, fuel level, coolant temperature, ambient temperature, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes. The remaining fuel range continues to display after the fuel gauge shows empty, offering the rider with accurate and comforting information. Plus, instantly recognizable LEDs provide freeze*, high-beam, neutral, malfunction indicator lamp (MIL), ABS, traction-control mode, and water-temperature indicators. All of this information is accessible from the left handlebar switch, where it is also possible to reset the trip meter
SOPHISTICATED V-TWIN PERFORMANCE
The 645cm3 DOHC V-twin is a masterpiece of Suzuki engineering which has an evolving history. For the V-Strom 650, this unit has been tuned for ample low to mid-range torque for practical use while maintaining an exhilarating top-end. The unit meeting Euro4 emission standards has undergone a rebuild, installing technology such as the resin-coated pistons, and revising over 60 components of the engine to achieve a higher output in a broad area of the rev-range while keeping the unique V-twin character with low fuel consumption. With low fuel consumption combined with the large 20L fuel tank, the riding rage between fill-ups are at the top in this class, relieving the rider from the stress of frequent refueling. The further evolved engine has succeeded in emphasizing the attractions of the V-Strom 650 character, making it another masterpiece by Suzuki
ADVANCED TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
Inheriting the favored traction control system from the V-Strom 1000, the V-Strom 650/XT also is equipped with this advanced technology. This system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position, crank position, and gear position with various sensors, and controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery. The traction control system can be switched to either of two modes, or off. The modes differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode one allows modest rear wheel spin for more advanced, exhilarating riding, while mode two activates traction control at the slightest loss of rear-wheel grip to give you greater confidence on slippery surfaces or in the rain. The choice of modes can be quickly and easily made by selecting the traction control mode from the left switch cluster and confirming it with a glance at the instruments. In difficult riding situations such as cold or ragged road surfaces, fully loaded with luggage, or with a pillion rider, this advanced system already established on the V-Strom 1000 shall back up the ride.Note: Traction control system is not a substitute for rider’s throttle control under the various conditions, and traction control cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, or while braking, and it does not control front wheel traction
SUZUKI ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (ABS)
Equipped with 310mm diameter twin discs with twin two piston calipers on the front and a 260mm diameter single disk with a single piston caliper on the rear, the V-Strom 650 and 650XT provides controllable and dependable stopping performance. Also the compact and light-weight ABS, to avoid wheel lock caused by excess hard braking, has been upgraded to the next generation with advanced settings for a further natural feel and secure activation.
Note: ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS
LOW RPM ASSIST
By adopting the Low RPM assist system, the concern of an unexpected engine stall has been relieved. This system will automatically raise the idle speed when engaging the clutch or when riding at low rpms, assisting frequent clutch work in congested town rides and preventing sudden and unexpected engine stall when running in the low rpm range.
SUZUKI EASY START SYSTEM
Conventional starter switches needed to be pressed by the rider until the engine starts, but the V-Strom 650 has adopted the Suzuki Easy Start System enabling the engine to start with one push of the button. A computerized ECM checks the status and disengages the starter motor immediately after start, making the engine start easier for the rider
One of the upgraded features in the 645cm3 unit are the resin-coated pistons which is a coating technology to decrease friction in the cylinder, resulting in improved fuel economy and corresponding to latest emission control. Special L-shaped piston rings are also installed for enhanced sealing performance and blow-by gas reduction, all resulting in meeting up-to-date regulations while improving the output and the ease of use.
CAMSHAFTS FOR A DISTINCTIVE POWER FEEL
For the unique character of the V-Strom 650, the engine needs to be strong not only at the top end but at the frequently used low to mid-range. To meet these demands, the engine has an original intake camshaft with equally lengthened intake ports, while for the exhaust camshaft, has adopted the item from the SV650 road model which are higher lifting compared to the previous V-Strom 650. These features and a total set-up has resulted in a boost in torque and power in the mid to high rev-range, providing the rider with an exciting ride when with a sporty mind, and a stress-free character for daily rides or on a long haul, simply enhancing the attractions of this 650.
LIGHTER AND LOWER EXHAUST SYSTEM
The down-type exhaust system is lighter and closer to the center of gravity, contributing to nimble handling while being able to accommodate the slim and smart optional luggage system. The catalyzers have been positioned in a tandem configuration achieving the required level of emission control for Euro4 emission standards, while successfully gaining exhaust efficiency to boost the output.
