2009 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS


Suzuki introduced its V-Strom in 2004 to compete with other mid-weight motorcycles that could be used on the street, or on the race track. Between 2004 and 2009, Suzuki increased the bike's wheelbase, added dual sparkplugs to the cylinders, and made an anti-lock braking system optional.

The 2009 Suzuki V-Strom has a two-cylinder, four-stroke V-twin engine. (The bike's name comes from a combination of the engine's V design, and the German word ""strom,"" which means stream, or current.) The 90-degree V-twin engine has helped establish the Suzuki V-Strom as an excellent dual-sport bike. A six-speed manual transmission gives the rider full control over how the bike responds to certain road conditions. Whether racing on a flat track without any obstacles, or winding down a country lane, the Suzuki can hold its own.

The 2009 Suzuki V-Strom's adaptability has made it possible for dealerships to market the bike in a variety of ways. The V-Strom has a combined fuel efficiency estimated at 59.5 mpg. This makes it an excellent commuter vehicle for those who like a little thrill on the way to work in the morning. The bike also has a 5.8-gallon tank that lets it travel approximately 340 miles before refueling. This long-distance capability allows dealerships to market it as a touring bike, as well as a commuter and sports bike.

With its cartridge front suspension, and mono shock swing arm rear suspension, the 2009 Suzuki V-Strom really can handle just about any kind of road conditions. Dual hydraulic front and hydraulic disc rear brakes also make it suitable for a wide range of driving conditions.

Of course, owners will also like that the 2009 Suzuki V-Strom has a cool aesthetic. It will definitely grab attention on the highway with its sporty style, but it doesn't look oddly out of place, like some mid-weight bikes that try too hard to look like they were solely designed for the race track.

New For 2009
  • Suzuki added an all-steel locknut to the V-Strom's rear axle in 2009. Previously, it was a coot pin style locknut. The company also replaced the amber signal light lenses with clear lenses.
