Suzuki Motorcycles earlier this year showcased the V-Strom 250 at the 14th China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition alongside the GSX-R250 and now, the Japenese bikemaker has unveiled its production-ready version at the ongoing EICMA 2016 in Milan. Suzuki took the elder sibling i.e. the V-Strom 1000 ADV bike, and has presented it in a quarter-litre format - the DL250 V-Strom. The new offering from Suzuki shares its platform with the Inazuma 250. The adventure motorcycle has been showcased in its production-spec version and it is expected to hit assembly line soon.

Mechanically also, the V-Storm 250 shares its engine with Suzuki Inazuma 250. Powering the bike is a 248cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke parallel-twin engine which pumps out around 25 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 23.4 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. The motor is coupled with a six-speed transmission and has been tuned in such a way that it will be delivering just the right amount of power required for adventure touring, with an impressive fuel economy.

The ADV bike will feature a large and easy to read LCD console, ABS from Bosch (standard), alloy wheels, a steep front windshield, fairing alongside fuel tank, optional hard panniers, a 17-litre fuel tank which offers around 500km of range, and a 12v power outlet.

The V-Strom 250 is going to be launched first in the European market in 2017, but chances of the bike hitting Indian shores are bleak. However, if it does make its way here, it will go up against the likes of the BMW G 310 GS and the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
