Suzuki has opened the order books for its new entry-level adventure bike, the V-Strom 250SX, which is expected to hit Australian showrooms in March and is priced from $6490 rideaway.

The LAMS-approved Suzuki V-Strom 250SX will sit below the midsized V-Strom 650XT ($14,990) and the soon-to-launch V-Strom 800DE ($18,590) and V-Strom 1050 ($22,990)  in the brand’s 2023 adventure bike line-up.

Drawing power from a 19kW/22Nm 249cc single-cylinder engine housed in a lightweight and off-road capable chassis, the new V-Strom 250SX will be positioned to compete with the incoming Benelli TRK 251, and play as a more affordable alternative to the likes of the KTM 390 Adventure ($9970) and BMW G 310 GS ($8775).

The new V-Strom 250SX should represent an accessible entry-point into the adventure bike category thanks in part to its manageable weight (167kg) and approachable 805-835mm seat height.

It should also ride confidently off-road with its 19-inch front wheel, dual sport tyres and 205mm ground clearance, however, traditional cast-wheels are fitted rather than wire-spoked items as found on more serious adventure models.

Other key features include a windscreen, a rear-carrier, preload-adjustable suspension, a USB outlet, LED lights and a conventional LCD dash.

The 2023 Suzuki V-Strom 250SX will launch in two colours, Pearl Blaze Orange and Suzuki Champion Yellow, and offered with a three-year warranty.

Suzuki will also launch a range of genuine accessories including luggage solutions, engine protection bars and heated grips, among other things.

INFO MOTO will be testing the new V-Strom 250SX in the coming weeks.
