The 2012 edition of the Suzuki V Strom 650 ABS. Here are seven stunning images.

Suzuki's new V Strom is powered by a 645 cc 90-degree V-Twin engine pumping out a fairly healthy 64 PS of power. In European countries several generations of the V Strom have been catering to the needs of someone who is looking for a budget sports touring motorcycle.

The upright handle bars clearly depicts that the bike is in favour of cruising but amazingly the Ninja feels equally at home on a track as it does out on the highway.

Here is where the V Strom would differ from the Ninja.

The V Strom is oriented more towards adventure touring than the racing track. The rugged design and high ground clearance has to be noted. Surely this segment has a fan following in India.
