2016 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT ABS

Formerly a more ruggedized version of the standard V-Strom 650, the V-Strom 650XT has been simplified for 2016. Gone are all the off-road and touring accouterments, and they are replaced by the distinctive beak-style fairing found on the V-Strom 1000.

Laced steel wheels–19-inch front, 17-inch rear–are retained from the old XT, however. Behind that, you get the same well-rounded 645cc V-twin motor and twin-spar aluminum frame, along with ABS and a three-position windscreen.
