The 2020 Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT will continue to sport a similar design to that of the outgoing model, which can be confirmed by the teaser image released by the company. The motorcycle will retain the vertical twin-pod headlight, adjustable windscreen, semi-digital instrument cluster, LED taillight and tubeless-tyre compatible wire-spoke wheels. The colour options are also expected to remain untouched – Champion Yellow and Pearl White Glacier.
Coming to the mechanical front, we don’t expect major upgrades in terms of power figures. The motorcycle will come equipped with BS6-compliant engine which will be a 645cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor. The company hasn’t revealed the exact figures for the motorcycle. The BS4 guise of the motorcycle developed 71bhp and 62Nm of power figures. The engine will be clubbed with a six-speed gearbox.
Features such as an analogue-digital instrument cluster, adjustable windscreen, three-level traction control, easy start system, low RPM assist and others will be straightaway lifted from the BS4 version.

For braking, the motorcycle will be equipped with dual-310mm discs up front and a 260mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS. The bike will sport 19-inch and 17-inch spoke wheels at the front and rear respectively. The 2020 Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT BS6 is expected to be slightly premium than the BS4 motorcycle that retailed at ₹ 7.46 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
