    Default 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 250cc launched in Japan

    Suzuki showed off its new mini-Strom last night at a big-ball bash in Japan.

    The bike is effectively wrapped around the 248cc, inline-twin, liquid-cooled, SOHC motor that powers the Inazuma roadster to 24bhp.






    The new baby Strom has been given a serious make-over to ape the style of Suzukis bigger siblings. The 250 also gets a full digital dash and complete range of luggage available in the Suzuki after-market range.

    We are an aspirational lot. Gone are the days when we were happy riding Activas n Jupiters. Actually, Suzuki is lazy and as a brand it is sluggish in pushing products. A decent product with sensible marketing and pricing is what we look forward to. Then comes the availability of service centres, spares and the ease and quality of service. Inazuma failed because of Suzuki's arrogance wrt pricing and lack of proper groundwork(read marketing). It is not people who failed them.

    Because until they completely manufacture it here, they cant price it well, hence will flop miserably.
    Till then enjoy the Single cylinders- Himalayan and upcoming BMW and KTM's Adventure tourers.
