2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650!!! The process began in 2008, with the goal of making what Suzuki describes as “The Comfortable Adventure Tourer.” To realize this goal, Suzuki engineers started virtually from scratch in redesigning the V-Strom 650. The V-Strom 650 Adventure bike is a perfectly capable machine. 650cc liquid-cooled V-Twin with The silky power delivery. On the open road, the V-Strom 650 Adventure can certainly hold its own. It has a smooth shifting transmission with an overdrive sixth gear. Retiring the previous powerplant, Suzuki took the Gladius 650 V-twin and reworked it for the V-Strom. Changing the cam profile, the new V-Strom motor has more aggressive valve timing than the previous edition, though not as sporting as the Gladius. The objective was to pump up the midrange and increase fuel consumption efficiency. For a motorcycle marketed as an adventure machine, it is highly confident on pavement. The instrument panel is easily read, day or night. The large tach is analog, with your speed and transmission position reported by a large LCD. Another cool thing is an ambient thermometer, and a small light that warns you when the temperature hits freezing, nice touch Suzuki. A volt meter has been added to it too. To help light up the road, a set of aftermarket LED lights are mounted to the fork legs. A top box with a passenger backrest has been added to it too. On the V-Strom, long distances can be travelled, either through scenic twisting mountain roads or on a droning interstate. The V-Strom plays well in traffic, yet is happy to fling itself through corners in rural locales. It is truly a fun bike!! It has been fully serviced, and is ready for a ride, Are you????
