The Perfect Middle-Weight ADV: 2022 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT
The Suzuki V-Strom 650XT is arguably all the motorcycle you’ll need. Whether you’re looking to get around town, hit the highway, or wander down an unexplored trail, the V-Strom 650XT is more than equipped to take on anything you throw at it. The V-Strom 650XT sits above the base V-Strom 650 and below the top-of-the-line 650XT Adventure in the Japanese manufacturer’s North American 2022 motorcycle portfolio.
The 650XT and 650XT Adventure are effectively the same motorcycles, with the latter offering some more features as standard, including crash protection, a handlebar cross-brace, and aluminum panniers. Both bikes are powered by a 645cc V-twin engine that produces 70hp and 46 lb-ft of torque, just like the base V-Strom 650.
Unlike the base model, these two adventure-oriented iterations come with spoked wheels, a skid plate, and handguards. Rider aids include Suzuki’s advanced traction control system, easy start system, low-rpm assist function, and ABS.
In Canada, the V-Strom 650XT is referred to as the V-Strom 650XA, while the V-Strom 650XT Adventure bears the V-Strom 650XAA moniker. For 2022, the V-Strom 650XT and the V-Strom 650XT Adventure are available in just one color scheme each in the U.S. The former comes in a Pearl Vigor Blue with Metallic Matte Sword Silver colorway, while the latter gets a Glass Sparkle Black color scheme. Across the border, both models are available in the color schemes mentioned above and a third Champion Yellow No.2 color.
The 2022 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT/650XT Adventure starts at $9,399 USD / $11,099 CAD.
