Suzuki has entered the much popular small displacement adventure motorcycle segment with the new V-Strom SX. Here is all that you need to know about its latest offering.

In terms of appearance, the Suzuki V-Strom SX looks like a proper ADV, taking design cues from its elder siblings like the V-Strom 1050 and DR-BIG. It flaunts a slim body design with a sharp beak, edgy body panels, and fuel extensions that flow downwards. It gets a large windscreen and borrows the octagonal shaped LED headlights from its sibling, Gixxer 250.

Powering the Suzuki V-Strom SX is the same 249cc single-cylinder oil-cooled engine as the Gixxer 250. It even produces the same torque and power output at 26.5PS and 22.2Nm, and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. However, a difference in performance might feel obvious as the bike is 11kg heavier.


Suzuki has packed the V-Strom SX with features such as a fully digital instrument cluster with turn-by-turn navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. It displays info such as call notifications, message alerts, speed exceeding warning, phone battery level and ETA. It also features a USB charging socket and Suzuki Easy start system.

With a taller seat height of 835mm, the V-Strom SX is suspended on a telescopic fork up front which gets only 120mm of travel, evidently less for an adventure motorcycle. At the rear it gets a monoshock with 7-step preload adjustability. Braking hardware consists of discs on both ends with dual-channel ABS, which isn’t switchable and could be inconvenient while off roading. The bike rolls on 19 inch front and 17 inch rear cast aluminium wheels and offers a good ground clearance of 205mm.

Rivals & Price
The Suzuki V-Strom SX is priced at Rs 2,11,600 (ex-showroom Delhi), around Rs 30,000 more expensive than its naked sibling, the Gixxer 250. However, it manages to be Rs 25,000 more affordable than the KTM 250 Adventure. Other rivals include the Benelli TRK 251 and Royal Enfield Himalayan.
