Suzuki has unveiled its new V-Strom 250 at the Milan Motorcycle Show, EICMA.
The small capacity adventure bike is based on the Inazuma 250 and is said to be equally adept at daily riding and long distance touring.
Powering the bike is a 248cc liquid-cooled SOHC four-stroke parallel-twin capable of 18.4kW of power and 23.3Nm of torque.
The engine is tuned to maximise low-to-mid range power and can travel over 480 kilometres on a single tank — bolstering its position as a long distance tourer.
Tech features include an LCD-lit screen with speedometer, average fuel consumption, driving range and fuel gauges.
In terms of luggage space, pannier mounts are equipped as standard and there is plenty of room for a top box.
The V-Strom 250 incorporates a similar design and riding position as its bigger-displacement siblings; the V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000.
Three colours are available: Pearl Nebular Black, Solid Dazzling Cool Yellow, Metallic Diamond Red and Pearl Nebular Black.
Local pricing and specifications are yet to be revealed, but we’ll keep you posted as new information emerges.
