Suzuki DL250 V-Strom

The Suzuki V-Strom 250 was first introduced in 2016 as the youngest low-cost motorcycle in the V-Strom lineup. The model is aimed at the markets of Asia, Europe and Australia. The factory code is DL250.

Despite the fact that Suzuki V-Strom 250 positions itself as a model of the enduro-touring DL series, it is based on the naked Suzuki GW250 (aka Suzuki GSR250), inheriting from it 2-cylinder in-line, liquid-cooled engine with 2 valves per cylinder. The chassis, although it has a slightly modified configuration, still applies more to road builders - suspensions with 115 and 125 mm strokes, respectively, alloy wheels 17 'and not the highest ground clearance of 160 mm. All this makes the V-Strom 250 a traditional modern marketing model, which is essentially a budget road bike wrapped in modern dual-sport styling.

Key features of the Suzuki V-Strom 250 include a steel frame, a 2-cylinder injection engine, simple non-adjustable suspensions, disc brakes with ABS, a 17.3 liter fuel tank, a 6-speed gearbox and 188 kg of curb weight. Wardrobe trunks, windscreens, 12V sockets, etc. are available as optional equipment.
