Last year, Suzuki tested the retro waters with the SV650 Scrambler. Sporting a more rugged look that is coupled to a 645cc V-Twin, the in-house custom was aimed primarily at riders that wanted a bit more individuality.
Now, the motorcycle brand officially revealed another version of the Scrambler, only this time it dons a different name and styling. It's the 2018 Suzuki SV650X Cafe and it recently made its world debut at this year's Milan Motorcycle Show.
Aesthetically-speaking, Suzuki got busy changing the overall look of the then-Scrambler. For starters, the SV650X gets a bikini-style fairing, clip-on handlebars and new headlight cowling. It even gets a tuck-and-roll seat which differs from the SV650's.
Powering the SV650X is the same 645cc V-Twin motor that doles out 75 PS at 8500 rpm and 64 Nm of torque at 8100 rpm. It benefits from four valves per cylinder, twin spark plugs and Twin Swirl Combustion Chamber (TSCC). New, however are the adjustable front forks which will also be available in the standard SV650 come 2018.
Other minor changes applied on Suzuki's new cafe racer include black painted rider and pillion footrests and new decals for the fuel tank.
