Suzuki has announced a new addition to its successful V-STROM family with the launch of the V-STROM 250SX.

The quarter-litre sport adventure machine (with the ‘S’ standing for sports and the ‘X’ for crossover) blends rugged versatility with stylish, modern adventure-inspired looks – including the legendary front ‘beak’ that has been a staple of V-STROM styling since 2002.

The new model’s equally at home cruising in town as it is rolling along an unpaved road in search of the next scenic vista. In other words, the V-STROM 250SX adds another rich layer to the already captivating V-STROM family – and does so as a lightweight breath of fresh air thanks to an extremely manageable 167kg package.

The V-STROM 250SX is powered by a 249cc, fuel-injected, four-valve single-cylinder engine, with key engineering pillars including enhanced cooling in demanding conditions for added peace of mind, and Suzuki Eco Performance (SEP) credentials that balance the concept of excellent fuel economy and strong engine performance.

Peak power and torque are 19.5kW @ 9,300rpm and 22.2Nm @7,300rpm respectively, while the sporty short-style dual-exit muffler is a bespoke design for the V-STROM 250SX.

A slim, nimble chassis makes it extremely agile to get around, and narrow side panels provide an easy reach to the ground. On unpaved roads the 19-inch front wheel and ample ground clearance (205mm) add a sense of stability alongside the reassurance of dual-channel ABS on the 310mm (front) and 240mm disc brakes.

The 10-spoke cast-aluminium wheels, including the 17-inch rear, are fittted with semi-block tyres which work well on both paved and unpaved roads for solid all-around usability.

A functional windscreen and knuckle covers make it an ideal touring proposition and, if pillions and/or luggage are a part of the mix, the V-STROM 250SX has a handy rear carrier that also functions as a grab bar. An extremely sturdy subframe ensures that tandem riding and touring are a breeze, and the rear suspension has seven-step preload adjustment to support riding in various conditions.

The V-STROM 250SX hits the utility and conveience mark like its larger-capacity siblings with a compact yet highly functional windscreen, knuckle covers, a USB outlet on the left side of the instrument cluster (which glows blue making it easier to use in low-light situations), vibration-absorbing rubber footpeg covers and a helmet holder. Toughness, sportiness, and convenience all rolled into one.

Stylish LED headlights and taillights add to the sleek look, road presence and visibility, while the full LCD instrument cluster offers a wealth of information at a glance – particularly important in off-road settings. Shown on the LCD display are the speedometer, tachometer, odometer, gear position indicator, two trip meters, instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, fuel level indicator, clock, and voltage meter.

Like all V-STROMS, accessories are available to personalise the ride and include engine protection bars, top case, heated grips, a fuel tank pad, wheel decals and a lower seat which reduces the height from 835mm to 805mm.

The V-STROM 250SX is available now online for $5490 MSRP ($6490 Ride Away) in two liveries: Pearl Blaze Orange and the unbiqutous Suzuki Champion Yellow, supported by Suzuki’s three-year factory-warranty program (two standard and one bonus). Stock is estimated to arrive locally in March 2023.

Bonus offer: As a gesture of Suzuki’s appreciation for customer commitment, online pre-order customers will receive a bonus top box kit with their bike delivery.
