2016 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS

With the goal of creating a “comfortable adventure tourer,” Suzuki gave its 2016 V-Strom 650 a powerplant with good torque in the low- and mid-range, plus a high-rpm horsepower boost.

The bottom-five gear ratios are fairly close for increased performance, leaving sixth as an overdrive. Ergonomically, the fairing has good protection, plus an adjustable windscreen. There are three seats available so the rider can personalize the V-Strom 650 ABS. Bags and additional protection are optional.
