Suzuki XF650 Freewind model history
1997—


I have tried to tell the XF650 Freewind model history on this page as I know it. This page is still under construction. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

The XF650 Freewind doesn’t look like most Suzukis. In fact, it looks more like a European bike, looking like a combination of a tourer and an off-street machine. The concept has proven to be quite successful but it wasn’t Suzuki’s own idea. The XF650 Freewind was built to compete with the highly successful BMW F650, a bike that topped European sales charts for many years in the 1990's. Suzuki took the engine from their successful dual-purpose bike, DR650, put it in a lowered frame and equipped it with road-oriented features such as massive body work, a useful fairing and 19-inch front wheel.

Both bikes, the DR650 and XF650 Freewind were catalogized as multi-purpose bikes. They use the same single cylinder engine, but they are not built for the same purpose. Probably with a good rider aboard and proper tires, the Freewind could tackle a hard-packed flat trail with the Freewind, but to be honest, it has built mainly for streets and not for terrain. Some people call it an all-purpose machine but then again, its main purpose is to ride it on roads.

Even the 2000-year's XF650Y saw some minor design changes. The post-1999 model can be recognized from the redesigned fuel tank graphics and the larger head light, similar to the front light of the GSX1300R Hayabusa.
