V-strom touches down in Aus­tralia

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE lat­est ver­sion of Suzuki's best-sell­ing, go-any­where ad­ven­ture tourer, the V-Strom 650, has touched down in Aus­tralia.

A per­fect fit for rid­ers want­ing a mul­tipur­pose ma­chine as ca­pa­ble on the streets as it is on out­back roads, the Suzuki VStrom 650 of­fers ex­treme ver­sa­til­ity to suit the Aus­tralian ter­rain and life­style.

Suzuki Aus­tralia mo­tor­cy­cles mar­ket­ing man­ager Lewis Croft said there was no mys­tery why the Suzuki V-Strom 650 was the best-sell­ing ad­ven­ture tourer in the coun­try last year.

"The V-Strom 650 con­tin­ues to set the bench­mark in ad­ven­ture tour­ers with its fo­cus on rider com­fort and ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy," he said.

The fuel-in­jected 645cc, liq­uid-cooled, DOHC, 90-de­gree, V-Twin engine de­liv­ers when the rider de­mands, with great low-to-mid-rpm range torque and sporty quick-revving high rpm power for full-range rid­ing en­joy­ment.

Tai­lored for ac­tive sporty rid­ers, the six-speed trans­mis­sion op­ti­mises power de­liv­ery while also en­sur­ing out­stand­ing fuel econ­omy.

Rider com­fort re­mains a pri­or­ity in the lat­est V-Strom 650, with three-way height-ad­justable wind­screen to ef­fi­ciently re­duce wind noise and rider fa­tigue.

The V-Strom 650 fea­tures a well-shaped func­tional seat, a slim 20-litre fuel tank and com­pactly tucked-in frame cov­ers to make the rider feel at one with the ma­chine.

Its user-friendly chas­sis, built around a light­weight and rigid twin-spar alu­minium-al­loy frame and swingarm, de­liv­ers a com­fort­able per­for­mance pack­age for en­joy­able ad­ven­ture tour­ing rides.

An up­right rid­ing po­si­tion, long-stroke front and rear sus­pen­sion and light­weight alu­minium-al­loy wheels with specif­i­cally de­signed tyres com­plete the sus­pen­sion pack­age.

The V-Strom 650's An­tilock Brak­ing Sys­tem en­sures ul­ti­mate trac­tion on the road, with the brakes mon­i­tor­ing in­put and wheel speed, match­ing stop­ping power to avail­able trac­tion.

Al­low­ing rid­ers to track their progress eas­ily, the VStrom 650's easy-to-read multi- func­tion in­stru­ment clus­ter com­bines an ana­logue tachome­ter with a large bright­ness ad­justable LCD, with read­outs in­clud­ing gear po­si­tion, am­bi­ent tem­per­a­ture and aver­age fuel con­sump­tion, in ad­di­tion to speed, odome­ter, dual trip me­ter and more.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, cus­tomers should visit par­tic­i­pat­ing Suzuki deal­ers, who can be found via the Dealer Lo­ca­tor on www.suzuki.com.au.

GO ANY­WHERE: Suzuki's best-sell­ing ad­ven­ture tourer, the V-Strom 650, has touched down in Aus­tralia and is a per­fect fit for rid­ers want­ing a mul­tipur­pose ma­chine.
