Suzuki V-Strom SX: The Gixxer 250’s sibling

This adventure bike from Suzuki shares the same platform as the Suzuki Gixxer 250. The company markets the Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 as a “sport adventure tourer.” In case you are scratching your head about finding the difference between the V-Strom SX 250 and the V-Strom SX, don’t worry. It’s the same bike. However, this adventure bike is the entry-level model in the V-Strom series. It is also the first adventure bike to enter Suzuki’s quarter-litre portfolio. But do note that the V-Strom SX 250 is not a full-fledged off-roader. However, if you are on a budget and aren’t too picky, then the Suzuki V-Strom bike could be your next purchase.
At the same time, if you have a similar bike in mind and want to check out the review, you can explore the “bike reviews” under the “reviews” category.

An Identical Machine
The Suzuki V Strom SX has the same 249cc BS6 engine as the Suzuki Gixxer 250. It develops a power of 26.1 bhp and a torque of 22.2 Nm. But, this oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine represents the same state of tune as its sibling, the Gixxer 250. This 249cc engine is exclusive to a six-speed gearbox. You won’t find the slipper clutch in case you were wondering. The fuel tank capacity of the Suzuki V-Strom SX is 12 litres. And if you’ve ever ridden a Suzuki Gixxer 250, you can expect the same riding experience from the V-Strom 250. For more information regarding the bike, check out the Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 review. Now, let’s jump to its design and features.

Appearance: Design, Features and Ergonomics
As far as appearance is concerned, the V-Strom SX 250 has a rugged-off-roader look. Like every off-roader or adventure bike with an extended beak below the headlights, paired with a naked motorcycle image in mind, the Suzuki V-Strom SX is like that. However, one thing it lacks that could have been convenient is an adjustable windscreen. Yes, it gets a non-adjustable windscreen, but it should not disappoint the rider as it gets a decent height. The Suzuki V-Strom SX features knuckle guards, a 19-inch front and a 17-inch rear wheel, and an aluminium luggage rack (with a threshold of up to 6 kg) at the back. The bike also rides on MRF Mogrip adventure tyres that look promising on all terrains. It also gets a revamped frame and a new swingarm. Its wheelbase measures 1440mm, making it 100mm longer than the Suzuki Gixxer’s 1,340mm. The Suzuki V-Strom SX’s ground clearance is 205 mm, which is ideal for adventure bikes.
You’ll also notice single discs on both wheels, paired with dual-channel ABS as an added safety feature.

As for the suspension, whether it is the front fork or the preload-adjustable mono-shock, the overall structure is identical to the Gixxer 250. To know how the ADV bike served en route to the hills, check out the V-Strom SX 250 review on autoX.

As far as the features are concerned, the Suzuki V-Strom SX has an LCD screen that displays the bike’s data. Apart from that, the screen’s position is also cleverly placed, as it is easy for the rider to read when the sun is overhead. The unit also gets Bluetooth connectivity with the basic new-age features such as call and message alerts or turn-by-turn navigation. Another notable feature is the USB port, which is ergonomically friendly. As for the ergonomics, especially for a tall rider, the handlebar is positioned slightly lower than ideal. That might make the rider bend more than the comfortable position. So, the positioning of the handlebar could have been better.
However, the overall fit and finish used on the bike can be satisfactory, but the opinion may differ from rider to rider.

Engine: Performance and Dynamics
As per some sources, the common rideability experience of the Suzuki V-Strom 250 includes an exhilarating throttle response and a punchy performance at low rpm. And that is followed by a slightly steady mid-range and a strong surge past 6,000 rpm. Interestingly, the engine’s tractability is up to the mark, as it can pull off effortlessly in the second gear. Even the low-end grunt is also pretty vocal. As for the absorbers, they are pretty well-tuned and concise. That tends to result in a responsive and planted front-end feel while sailing over uneven terrain. The ADV bike has more speed in the engine to offer, so hitting 130km/h or beyond won’t be a problem.

Prices: Variants and Rivals
The on-road Delhi price of the Suzuki V-Strom SX Standard is Rs 2,45,973 as of June 2022. There is only one variant available. In terms of rivalry, the V-Strom SX 2022 rivals the KTM 250 Adventure, Benelli TRK251, Royal Enfield Himalayan, and Hero XPulse 200, to name a few. For more updates, stay tuned to autoX!
