What Is It?

It's powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 645cc 90° V-Twin engine, producing 70bhp at 8,800rpm and maximum torque at 6,500rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame and swingarm
  • Dual 310mm discs up front with Tokico 2 piston calipers
  • 260mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • ABS system, LED tail light
  • Traction control with two modes and off
  • Low rpm assist, easy start system
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

Compared to the 2012-2016 model power and torque are up slightly, it now looks more like the V-Strom DL1000, weight is down, traction control is new, the wheel are lighter, the screen is 9mm higher, there's a 12V socket near the dash and a more comfortable seat.

The bike features quite a bit of tech, notably the easy start system which lets you quickly press and release the start switch while the bike takes care of the startup procedure. Then the low rpm assist keeps the engine ticking over smoothly for you, then lets you start pulling away with just the clutch.

A new lower exhaust helps with emissions while also centralising the mass for better handling. The 10-spoke 19" front wheel takes a Battlax Adventure A40 110/80 tyre and the rear 17" a 150/70.

Accessories include the belly pan, handguards, panniers, 35 / 55 litre topbox, heated grips, touring screen with adjustable spoiler, centre stand, chain guard, LED fog lamps, LED indicators and low / high seat. The £1,200 Adventure Pack gets you engine bars, lower cowl, hand guards, centre stand, 55 litre top box and 15 litre tank bag.

  • 2017-2018: Black, white, yellow
  • 2019: Black, white, red

As before the 650XT is more expensive and 3kg heavier but gets you the wire spoked wheels, belly pan and handguards.

2017: £1,000 GT pack includes the 35 litre top box and panniers.
