Is This the New Suzuki V-Strom 650?

Suzuki teases new "middle-class" Adventure bike

Share this Article

Suzuki has released a teaser for a new mid-sized adventure bike, likely an updated V-Strom.

The teaser campaign, which can be seen at Suzuki’s official website, shows the image above, along with the words: “Time For Real Adventures” and “Middle-Class New Motorcycle”. These hints suggest the new model will be an updated V-Strom 650, likely using an engine similar to the one powering the Suzuki Gladius SFV650.

French website Moto-Station suggests the new V-Strom will get a new frame with different geometry from the current model (which has remained relatively unchanged since its 2004 debut). It will likely be equipped with ABS, seeing as Suzuki dropped the non-ABS version from its 2011 U.S. offerings.

We expect more information to be released soon, so check back here for updates.

    its a new V-Strom 1000, not the 650 as your suggested.

    a Japanese bike designer at the Suzuki Dealer show in Las Vegas this past September told me it was on the way next..

    after i complained about no 1000cc adventure bike and that the only available model was the 650 ABS that no one wanted to buy..!!

    he told me to look for it as their next ‘new’ model to come and not to worry..

    so take it for what it is..
