The SR75 World Team Suzuki has revealed a special V-Strom 650XT project. Launched at the ABR Festival, the standard V-Strom has been stripped back to its component parts, before a number of elements were modified or replaced to boost its off-road capabilities and performance.
The standard 19in and 17in wheels have been replaced with 21in and 18in rims with bespoke Envy hubs, shod with Pirelli tyres. The whole chassis has been raised with in-house suspension mods and upgraded springs. SR75 team owner, Geoff Walker commented: “With the taller, tougher stance, the modifications to the seat, pegs, and bars and heavy duty crash protection, it’s going to be a proper thing off-road, and we’ve got some big plans to do some cool things with it this summer. And for any V-Strom owners looking to recreate or take inspiration, we’d be happy to help with parts and to share our knowhow.”
