Suzuki v-strom SX 250: What i evaluated before booking

Published Date:

I finally reserved a Suzuki V-Strom SX 250. waiting for delivery on a lucky day this month.

Pros of the V-Strom SX 250

  • The Suzuki engine is very well-built and trustworthy. They’re people I can trust.
  • A 250 CC engine produces 26 Bhp, which is a bit less than the KTM ADV 250, but it is more than enough for me. More than I can reasonably use. An excellent assessment on this was provided by a buddy who rented it out for the weekend along with Bhpian. He claimed he could travel at 100 Kmph without any difficulty. The majority of web reviewers and owners on team bhp agreed. For a relaxed rider like me, this is enough for highway trips.
  • Excellent rider and passenger comfort. I went on a few test drives with my wife and child, and it was comfy. On a bike like this, though, I’ve never done triple riding (or any other two wheeler). The seats were given her approval.
  • Includes dual channel ABS and basic safety technology.
  • Less money is spent up front. 2.58L OTR, which is 60K less than KTM adv. The cost of services could be cheaper than KTM.
  • According to users, the FE achieves 40KMPL, which is respectable for a bike of this size and power.
  • Nice-looking bicycle. The bright yellow is eye-catching and resembles a young V-Strom. I still have a thing with the way the KTM ADV looks. I’ll get over this, I promise. It will turn heads on the road if you add a full-size crash protection and a few fog lamps. I don’t know why, but my wife has told me not to bring this to her college.
  • Excellent riding position; during test rides, I thought it was very comfortable; I could handle short and long trips with ease.
  • Feels like a city bike that can be used. Useful for commuting to work (if the wfh is completely revoked).

Cons of the Suzuki V-Strom

  • Suzuki management of services and products. Does anyone still have a Suzuki Inazuma? It had a parallel cylinder engine and was a very good motorcycle. Suzuki stopped selling it as a result of low price and sales. I only hope Suzuki can keep this one going for a while. Owning a model that isn’t currently in production would be awful. Because I’ve never had a Suzuki motorcycle, I’m hoping they have good mechanics to take care of the V- Strom. I wished Suzuki had seized the opportunity to equip the V-Strom with a twin-cylinder 250cc engine. It most likely would have made a better bike.
  • Switchable ABS; no slipper clutch or cornering. For me, it’s not a deal-breaker. I can shift gears by releasing the clutch. Around curves, I’ll take it carefully; I don’t think ABS has to be turned off (I have no plans of going full off road). You can buy these in KTM adv for an additional 60K INR.
  • In city traffic, bike aggressively. I’m used to riding commuter bikes and scooters with 150cc engines. Getting acclimated to riding this in city traffic can take some time.
  • As I am just about 5.7 feet tall, I am unable to flat-foot with both legs. Even though I can get by, I wish I were a little bit taller. The scooped out seat wasn’t for me, but I did check it out. It was too uncomfortable and challenging.
  • No instrument cluster in colour. Comparatively speaking to the KTM, I found the backlit monochrome instrument cluster to be a little monotonous. For me, a Bluetooth capability serves no purpose. On my wife’s Ntorq, which I used once just to check it out, I have this. Never again did I use it. I’ll likely buy a good mount if I need to use GPS.
