In the middle of 2011, without Suzuki reiterates its DL 650 V-Strom. completely revised, reworked Gladius for more roundness, new of equipment, standard ABS and many accessories: the operation aims to the career of the versatile Suzuki … and does seem to fly!

DL650 V-Strom 2011 to First test

The trails of unfamiliar crisis. The “ roll-always “ for a versatile bike is always go to the as well as those seeking a “ “ average displacement adapted to as a duo, without going the box semi roadster -keeled. dominated by the Honda Transalp, the has seen boosted by the arrival of BMW GS and 800 and, more recently, by Triumph Tiger 800.

these conditions, Suzuki probably the evolution of his V-Strom at the time. So we went out to meet new V-Strom DL 650 model 2011/2012 in far from the Spanish roads for type of test. The geographical appropriate for a significant change in the Suzuki?

Gone are the prominent V-Strom, is the V-Strom becomingly

Recognize if the Suzuki DL650 V-strom now has a fan club, she had a difficult start he arrived on the market in 2003. The of the new version marks a break some of the old model: the finite lines and style straight up gently rounded, the tank to the All the buildup of Suzuki DL650 has changed, but the controls, the dashboard, the … At least, it really seems new “ V-Strom 2.0 “!

Fortunately, the ergonomics is the relaxing, relaxed arms. unfolded. The layout of the dashboard is clear and the controls are obvious like the button that information on the dashboard with one The sound is that of the Suzuki even if the first SV in carbs more melodic. Here, the are muffled.

First, the clutch as easily as the throttle is sweet butter for delicate mimines.

For heroes

In five minutes town, we begin by noting the V-Strom 2011 has retained its to commute or her chosen field. The is really easy. the engine is and devoid of brutality, and general – including the turning circle – is good. If the old DL 650 was renowned for its ease, the shows simply obvious ( enhanced his saddle which more attention during ).

Our group, composed of journalists across Europe, takes the What test its protection the best in the category, even the bubble set to the middle notch ( 2 of 3 ). at 130 km / h or 5900 rev / min in the sixth, on this highway south-eastern Europe to be a boring nothing, I hasten to the lead of a colleague who it no longer a burst of speed.

Attempt is not the taste of our opener, Simon a former pilot who now works for GP Suzuki. Nevertheless, the episode has us to check the health of the motor and stability at high speeds.

the version with luggage, I succeed not do better than 190 km / h against around 210 km / h version equipment. A given standard of the air brake of “ cake- “ back. stability is satisfactory for a well machine and if the handlebars a little in the hands, it’s not really

We leave the highway to quickly the winding mountain in Croatia.

all-terrain cycle

The new Suzuki V-Strom 2011 shows an ability to erase the corners, the quality of the bitumen. And in this the grip of Croatian roads is the alternating current at EDF! A pin and zip rear tire shreds on the The bike settles on its suspension, but by itself. A handful of gravel over the course scares the wheel and presto, the V-Strom up healthily.

She forgives many the essence of the trail eventually.

And reinforces our initial reaction: a and a clear directional stability at speed very correct, the new DL650 V-Strom adds a generally very healthy, wrap without relent a front and fairly accurate neutral. Trajectory corrections are and the bike does not stiffen the under braking curve in of suspension travel and rewards of All in a comfortable driving through suspensions effective – although comfort oriented than – and a remarkable saddle, a priori better than the Honda

While some trails as the Kawasaki Versys 800 or the new Tiger, a stiffer frame, more behavior and running gear more set on the same rail. In his must still note the new Suzuki DL650 retains the old Trailwing in OE: there are far more today.

Effective but not very …

As for the engine finally Suzuki 2011, he participated in the overall Really round on acceleration at low and it offers a flexibility that the general smoothness of V-Twin and its On reports 2, 3 and 4, leaves without to 2500 rev / min. Below, a few that can inform good the throttle of a twin, although it may further. Normally, the useful is between 4 000 r / min and 7500 r / min.

The of torque can then be rolled up and a serene overruns.

Past r / min, it is expected a handover the torque and power, the latter to over until the red zone, at 10 000 r / min: a lost cause … The is not really to go. So, in the absence of fun during point ( quite rare in use ), it falls back on the torque and both “ comfortable mechanically “. In a strewn valleys, I reach the top of a Surprise! A herd of goats and shepherd occupy the entire

Appraisal: Dear evolution

This is frankly a good although this availability at the expense of fun … I bet that this of engineers is the right given the of motorcycling.

The chassis responds to mechanics: serenity, ease and comfort here share the Then we regret certain somewhat detrimental: the elevation of the for example, the tank capacity in of two liters ( fortunately, consumption low: 6.5 l/100 km recorded our test, with maximum tests and mountain roads ) and a sales price.

The new Suzuki V-Strom 2011 is indeed € 8,199 with ABS as standard.
