By autoX Editorial | on November 9, 2016

Suzuki expands its V-Strom range with the 2017 V-Strom 250. The 2017 Suzuki GSX250R will be Euro 4 compliant.

Suzuki is expanding its 250cc motorcycle line-up with the unveiling of two new models at the EICMA (Italian for Milan Motorcycle Show). These new models included the GSX250R and the V-Strom 250. The new 2017 Suzuki GSX250R has always been designed to be a sporty looking motorcycle while also being comfort oriented for the rider. The new model stays true to its lineage but now packs in a Euro 4 compliant engine with new intake valves to optimize air flow into the combustion chamber. The engine churns out 24BHP of max power @ 8,000 rpm and 23.4Nm of peak torque @ 6,500 rpm. There is also a new two-into-one exhaust system that enhances mid-range punch.

The Suzuki V-Strom will cater to a broader rider base with the launch of its most affordable and accessible model to date with the introduction of the V-Strom 250. The new 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 250 is powered by a redesigned version of the company’s 248cc parallel twin engine. The engine for the V-Strom 250 is tuned for better low range and mid-range torque in keeping with its adventure oriented nature and off-road riding needs. On paper, the 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 250’s engine develops an identical 24BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 23.4Nm @ 6,500 rpm as the 2017 Suzuki GSX250R’s engine. The 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 250 takes design inspiration from its larger siblings and will be offered with an integrated luggage system that does away with the requirement for an additional rack while being able to integrate Suzuki’s own side cases.
