Hi all.

I am looking to purchase a new V Strom DL650 GT. One company is offering this bike with AK9 in the title. Does anyone know what AK9 means?

Regards
Jim

I think the A signifies ABS and K9 means 2009 model. They probably have the model numbers like this listed on Suzuki UK website.

You'll see "K" beng used here frequently. It's in reference to the model year. K7 is a 2007, K9 is a 2009 and so on.

The A is for ABS.

So a DL650AK9 is a 2009 650 with ABS.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I have been looking about on the Internet and I cannot find the answer. It is mentioned but nowhere does it say what it mean. I will keep looking.

Thank you SilverStrom.... That answers my question. So just so I get this correct a Suzuki DL650 GT AK9 is the full Touring bike with pannions and back box and ABS breaks.

Sorry I dont want to get this wrong.

Regards
Jim
