New GT Spec For Suzuki V-Strom Range


Suzuki's V-Strom range gets a GT update, with a touring package added to the V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000.

For £1000 more than the standard models, the GT bikes get three piece luggage as standard; the top box and panniers boasting a combined capacity of 64L.

For heavier off-roaders, the GT kit is also available on the XT versions of the V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000.

The V-Strom 650 has several updates for 2017, including low RPM assist, and Suzuki’s new easy-start system along with a two-stage traction control system, which can be switched off.

An updated version of Suzuki’s proven 645cc V-twin produces more power and torque, helped by a new exhaust system.

There's also a 1kg weight reduction, unlikely to be felt, but a 12V DC does improve practicality.

There’s also new luggage and new heated grips available as part of Suzuki’s genuine accessory range.

The newest V-Strom 1000 is updated with cornering ABS and a three-mode traction control system, as well as the same easy-start system and low RPM assist as the 650.

A redesigned screen improves weather protection, as part of the the bike’s newly-fitted bodywork.

The V-Strom 650 GT will retail for £8,399, with V-Strom 650X GT available for £8,899.

The V-Strom 1000 GT will come with an RRP of £10,499, with the range-topping V-Strom 1000X GT available for £10,999.
