Suzuki Australia has added the V-Strom 250 ABS model as the starting rung on its adventure touring-lineup.
Available late this month, September 2018, in Champion Yellow or Metallic Triton Blue at $7,190 ride away the DL250 comes with 12 months registration and is backed by Suzuki’s 12-month, unlimited kilometre warranty.
Based on the chassis of the successful GSX250R, the V-Strom 250 ABS gains the versatility of its larger capacity DL siblings and is aimed at riders purchasing their first motorcycle or riders returning to two wheels after absence. The DL250 tips the scales at 188kg (wet).
The 248cc parallel-twin engine is also sourced from the GSX250R and tuned to maximise low-to-mid range torque, providing real world engine performance where the rider needs it most.
A compact windscreen developed through extensive wind tunnel testing protects the rider from the elements. The round centrally mounted headlight features a hard anodised finish.
Stopping duties are handled by a single 290mm petal-type disc and twin-piston caliper up front and a 240mm petal-type disc with single-piston caliper on the rear. An Antilock Brake System (ABS) made by Bosch delivers greater confidence and control.
Dedicated mounting clips to accommodate the optional Genuine Suzuki accessory side cases are a handy feature. As is the large aluminium rear carrier fitted with hooks for attaching straps and that can also be used for attaching the optional Genuine Suzuki accessory top case.
A comprehensive instrument panel conveys all the necessary information a rider needs to know on-the-go including speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual trip meters, gear position, driving range, average fuel consumption, fuel gauge, RPM indicator ON/OFF, oil change timing indicator and a clock.
The 2019 Suzuki V-Strom 250 ABS is a motorcycle that is equally at home in city traffic as it is on open roads when touring. Sporting a comfortable riding position, confidence-inspiring low 800mm seat height and a user friendly engine that delivers power and torque where you need it most.
