Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2012 Suzuki V-Strom DL650. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

For 2012, Suzuki updated their incredibly popular V-Strom 650 with some changes to make it better on the road – a taller seat, better windshield, new dash, slight diet, upgraded suspension, and a significant cosmetic update with color options of Glass Sparkle Black or a striking Metallic Fox Orange.

The 645cc 90 degree V-Twin engine was also updated, with SCEM-plated low friction cylinders, lighter valve springs, dual iridium spark plugs, and an integrated idle speed control system. These changes bumped up horsepower and torque between 3-10 percent across the revband, yielding 66 horsepower and 43 lb-ft of torque while returning over 45 miles per gallon.

The V-Strom 650 (affectionately called the “Wee Strom” by some owners as it was the little sibling to the V-Strom 1000) also featured standard ABS brakes (electronics by Bosch) with triple discs and Tokico/Nissin calipers.

Manufactured in August of 2012, this example is VIN: JS1VP56A0C2104182. The seller is the original owner, he purchased it new at Beaverton Motorcycles on December 28, 2012.

The odometer shows 11,088 miles.

Corbin leather seat (the stock seat is included).

Givi trunk with stoplight.

Brighter headlight and taillight.

Not pictured are a lithium battery, lithium battery charger, and a PIAA Sports horn.

The seller states that there are no mechanical issues or cosmetic blemishes. “I did most of the oil and filter changes myself every 900 to 1200 miles. All other maintenance and adjustments (including one factory recall) have been done at the dealer.” It got a hydraulic fluid and coolant flush within the last 1,000 miles and it has new Michelin Road Trail 5 tires.

He adds that “the V-Strom’s longer wheelbase combined with the Corbin seat provides a comfortable ride on road trips. My travels have included trips to Reno, Nevada and Sun Valley, Idaho from Portland, Oregon with the bike never missing a beat.”

Currently located in Lake Oswego, Oregon, this Suzuki is offered on a clean Oregon title. The seller sums up his bike by calling it “the Swiss Army knife of motorcycles,” noting that he’s letting it go as he’s “scaling back on my riding and looking for something smaller for in-town fun.” Have any V-Strom stories or questions about this listing?
