Suzuki has announced the newest addition to its adventure-tourer range, the V Strom 250 at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The V Strom 250 with the V Strom 650 and V Strom 1000 will complete a triplet of adventure tourers from the Japanese manufacturer. With the smaller engine size, the V Strom 250 is geared more towards the new entrants in adventure touring and those looking to downsize.
The V Strom 250 comes with a 248cc parallel twin engine that produces 24.65bhp of power and 22Nm of peak torque. Suzuki claims that with a full tank of fuel, the V Strom will have a range of over 500kms. The bike, it is claimed will deliver maximum acceleration from 20km/h to 90km/h, improving its rideability.
A saddle height of 800mm promises a convenient riding position for riders of all heights. The bike comes with a compact windscreen that will offer protection for the rider from all the elements.
A host of accessories are being offered with the bike including hard case panniers, side cases, knuckle protectors and the like. It is unclear at this point of time if the Suzuki V Strom 250 will make its way to India.
