Long-distance tourer that combines unique styling with a shaft drive


The GS650G is particularly notable for its unique styling that presents a thoroughly futuristic and sporty impression. Its 4-cylinder DOHC 2-valve 650 cm³ engine is equipped with the Suzuki Twin Dome Combustion Chambers (STDCCs) and generates maximum horsepower of 65 PS and maximum torque of 51.98 N·m. In addition to this highly reliable and quiet engine, the GS650G features Anti Nose Dive Forks (ANDF), front and rear disc brakes, tubeless tires, and a maintenance-free shaft drive. A large-capacity 23-liter fuel tank makes this model particularly suited for long-distance touring.
