Suzuki has just announced new color options for its popular middleweight adventure touring bike range. The V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 650XT have been updated with more attractive designs, and there's sure to be something for everybody.
The V-Strom range has long been among Suzuki's most popular bikes. Featuring the tried and tested 645cc V-twin engine, the lineup continues to be a viable choice for the adventurous. For 2022, the range gets even better.
Starting with the V-Strom 650, it gets three color options. There's a Pearl Vigor Blue color with white beak decals. For fans of darker machines, there's the Glass Sparkle Black with Yellow Beak Graphic. Lastly, Pearl Brilliant White with Blue Beak decals is also available.
The V-Strom 650XT gets four color options for 2022. First is Pearl Vigour Blue with Metallic Matte Sword Silver Beak decals and blue rims. There's also Glass Spark Black with Grey and Blue Beak graphics and blue rims. As for holdovers from last year, there's still Champion Yellow No. 2 with gold rims and Pearl Brilliant White with gold rims.
These new colors could be enticing for many riders in the market for a new adventure touring bike. The 2021 V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 650XT are available in the Philippines, sans the new colorways.
