2020 Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT gets a BS6 update

Suzuki Motorcycle India will be launching the BS6 version of the V-Strom 650 XT tomorrow in the domestic market. The company has already unveiled the bike in the global market. The launch in India will take place virtually. Launch invites have already been distributed. The bike was expected to be launched in April but due to the pandemic, its introduction was postponed. The availability and pricing details of the motorcycle will be revealed at the launch itself. However, we can expect the price of the BS6 version to start from Rs 7.66 lakh (ex-showroom). While its BS4 counterpart was priced at Rs 7.45 lakh (ex-showroom).

In terms of design, the upcoming bike will not see any changes. It gets a sporty semi-faired look. Upfront, it will feature a twin-pod headlamp cluster. Other design highlights will include a sloping fuel tank, wide-handlebars, stepped-up seat, adjustable transparent windshield, and spoked wheels among many.  As for features, the BS6 version is likely to get a digital instrument console with Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity instead of an analogue readout. The fuel tank capacity of the adventure tourer will be 20-litres. Furthermore, we can also expect the two-wheeler to weigh around 216 kgs. 


Mechanically, the upcoming BS6 Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT will be powered by an updated version of the 645cc V-twin motor that churns out 70 bhp power and 62 Nm torque. The unit is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike is likely to retain the suspension, brakes, and frame setup from its predecessor. It will get disc brakes on both the front and the rear. Furthermore, the bike is also likely to get ABS as a standard feature along with Traction Control Modes. Suspension duties will be taken care by telescopic forks upfront and a mono-shock unit towards the rear.
