1. Engine And Performance
The 249 cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled single overhead cam (SOHC), four-valve engine from the Suzuki Gixxer 250 series produces 26 horsepower at 9,300 rpm and 22.2 Nm of peak torque at 7,300 rpm. Suzuki claims that the 250 cc adventure sports tourer has employed MotoGP analytic technology to build the valves, shim type roller rocker arms retainers, and pistons, all of which are lighter. The engine of the V-Strom SX features a piston, which helps to enhanced output and fuel economy, and it can handle a broad range of scenarios, from city riding to high-speed cruising. Sensors feed information to the electronic fuel injection system, which keeps track of and delivers the right quantity of fuel for the conditions.
The Suzuki V-Strom SX is inspired by its larger V-Strom brothers in terms of style and design. The V-Strom SX’s beak design was influenced by the iconic Suzuki DR-Z racing and the DR-BIG off-road versions, according to Suzuki Motorcycle India, and was created particularly for the V-Strom SX. Champion Yellow No. 2, Pearl Blaze Orange, and Glass Sparkle Black are the three colours offered for the bike.
3. Other Specifications
The V-Strom SX has a higher ground clearance of 205 mm and a kerb weight of 167 kg than the Gixxer 250. The fuel tank capacity stays at 12 litres. The Suzuki V-Strom SX has a 19-inch front tyre and a 17-inch rear wheel, but suspension travel isn’t extended to give it complete off-road capability. Suzuki Motorcycle India has marketed it as a crossover, which should allow the V-Strom SX to handle light off-road activities while still providing comfortable long-distance touring capability.
4. Notable Features
The Suzuki V-Strom SX also has a Suzuki Easy Start System and Bluetooth connectivity via the Suzuki Ride Connect app, which includes features like turn-by-turn navigation, incoming calls, SMS alerts, WhatsApp Alert display, missed calls, speed exceeding warning, phone battery level display, and estimated arrival time. A USB outlet on the instrument cluster’s left side can be used to charge a gadget. It illuminates blue, making it simple to find and use even in dim light. Only Android systems have the missed call warning and caller ID features.
5. Pricing And Rival
The Suzuki V-Strom SX costs Rs. 2.11 lakh (ex-showroom) and competes with the KTM 250 Adventure and Benelli TRK 251. However, it will compete with the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Yezdi Adventure, Hero XPulse 200 4 Valve, and even the Honda CB200X in terms of pricing and capabilities. The design and smooth powertrain from the Gixxer 250 family are where the V-Strom SX shines.
