Suzuki has launched the V-Strom 250SX in Australia at the bargain price of $6490 ride away with online orders being taken for March ’23 delivery.
Suzuki has added a new adventure machine to its V-Strom line-up called the 250SX, priced from $6490 ride away.
Powered by a 249cc, fuel-injected, four-valve single-cylinder engine, the V-Strom 250SX pumps out a claimed 19.5kW at 9300rpm and 22.2Nm at 7300rpm. Suzuki says its slim, nimble chassis makes it extremely agile, while narrow side panels make it easy for riders to plant their feet on the ground, despite the 835mm seat height. It’s light too, tipping the scales at a manageable 167kg.
The 250SX wears 10-spoke cast-aluminium wheels, with a 19-inch rim up front and a 17-inch at the rear rear, fitted with semi-block tyres that are designed to work well on both sealed and unsealed roads. There’s a claimed 205mm of ground clearance, and while the rear suspension features adjustable preload. The brake package consists a 310mm disc up front and a 240mm disc at the rear, with dual-channel ABS.
The styling mimics Suzuki’s larger V-Strom models and includes the distinctive front beak synonymous with the nameplate. A compact yet functional windscreen, LED lighting package, handguards, USB outlet, rubber footpeg inserts and a helmet holder add to the utility and convenience of the V-Strom 250SX. An LCD instrument cluster shows speedo, tacho, odo, gear position, two trips, instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, fuel level, clock and voltage.
A rear rack allows for easy attachment of luggage, and Suzuki says the bike’s sturdy subframe ensures that tandem riding and touring is a breeze.Suzuki will also offer a range of optional accessories to suit the V-Strom 250SX, including engine protection bars, top case, heated grips, fuel tank pad, wheel decals and a lower seat (805mm).
The V-STROM 250SX can be ordered now on the Suzuki Australia website with expected deliveries to start in March 2023. It’s priced from $6490 ride away in either Pearl Blaze Orange or Suzuki Champion Yellow, and is covered by a three-year factory-warranty. Suzuki says stock is expected to land in Australia in March 2023. Online pre-order customers will receive a bonus topbox kit with their bike.
