The V-Strom 650 will go on sale in August 2018. India will most probably only get the adventure-focused XT variant of the V-Strom 650. Prices could be between Rs 7.5-7.7 lakh (ex-showroom). The bike will be locally assembled.
The bike is inspired by the V-Strom 1000. It is powered by a 645cc, V-twin engine that makes 71hp and 62Nm and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The V-Strom 650 XT gets a three-stage traction control system (two levels and a disengage option). You also get a three-way height adjustable windscreen, Suzuki’s useful Easy Start System and standard ABS.
The bike is on sale for Rs 6.69 lakh (ex-showroom).
