Suzuki India has launched the BS6 version of its hugely popular Suzuki Vstrom 650. This is the first big bike from Suzuki in India to be launched in the BS6 avatar.
What seems surprising is there is no change in the looks or mechanicals yet the price has been hiked by more than 1.3 lacs for the BS6 Vstrom 650XT . The previous-generation BS4 V-Strom 650XT used to retail at about Rs 7.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), which makes the BS6 version quite expensive.
The 650XT remains one of the most affordable adventure tourers out there in the market.
Below are the specs of the India bound BS6 Suzuki Vstrom XT
The BS6 V-Strom 650XT ABS will be available in two colour options – Champion Yellow No 2 & Pearl Glacier White.
Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT ABS is powered by a 645cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC 90° V-twin engine. The motorcycle delivered 69 hp and 62 Nm of peak torque in its BS4 version. It features Suzuki Easy Start System for quick electric starts.
The middleweight adventure tourer comes with a dual-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and a three-mode traction control system (two modes and it can be switched off).
