Massive and smart Seat height 800mm The V-Strom 250 ABS design concept is “Massive and Smart”: Massive for the solid feel of its well-balanced body and Smart for its sophisticated and practical design that provides ease of handling. Naturally, the V-Strom 250 ABS shares the same outdoor adventure DNA as its siblings, with design cues such as its yellow color scheme and unique ‘beak’ paying tribute to Suzuki’s famed DR-Z and DR-BIG desert racers. Rear combination lights The taillight adopts a surface-emitting LED. Headlight The metal shell surrounding the headlight features a hard anodized finish and is designed to resemble a flashlight. Turn signals adopt clear lenses Multi-function instrument panel LED indicators include those for the turn signals, high beam, neutral, malfunction, ABS, RPM indicator, coolant temperature and oil pressure.The indicators are designed to be easy to recognize. The LCD instruments include: Speedometer, Tachometer, Odometer, Dual trip meters, Gear position, Driving range, Average fuel consumption, Fuel gauge, RPM indicator ON/OFF, Oil change timing indicator, Clock.

Photo: V-Strom 250 ABS Engine performance The 248cm 3 parallel-twin engine that powers the V-Strom 250 ABS underwent thorough analysis and optimization to maximize low- to mid-range torque and provide a powerful ride that features ease of control. The overall efficiency achieved also helps realize better fuel economy and clean performance that satisfies the stringent Euro 4 emission regulations. With a full tank of gasoline, the V-Strom 250 ABS has a riding range of over 500km* 1. *1: Calculated based on the Worldwide Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC) mode exhaust emissions measuring conditions. Actual fuel economy and riding range may differ owing to differences in conditions such as the weather, road, rider behavior and maintenance. Camshaft The cam profile for the V-Strom 250 ABS delivers maximum acceleration performance at speeds between 20km/h to 90km/h, as this is the range that is used most often. As an additional benefit, the cam profile also suppresses noise generation to deliver a smoother, more pleasant ride. Cylinder The honing pattern used for the cylinder barrels maintains lubrication for the pistons in a manner that helps minimize any loss of performance due to friction. Cylinder head The cylinder head adopts roller type rocker arms that minimize friction loss. Piston Thin, low tension piston rings were adopted to reduce friction and the shape of the piston ring grooves was also optimized. Spark plug Adopting the use of projected tip spark plugs speeds up the rate of combustion. This improves response, especially when the throttle is not open far, and also improves fuel economy. New intake valve design The port sections on the intake valves are designed to optimize airflow into the combustion chamber. This helps achieve a high level of thermal efficiency for improved performance and reduced emissions. Rectifier Adopting an open type rectifier contributes to improved fuel economy. Highly efficient, lightweight exhaust system The two-into-one exhaust system for the V-Strom 250 ABS features an optimized shape for the chamber in front of the catalyzer. This maximizes acceleration performance at mid-range speeds, while the efficiency of the system also reduces exhaust emissions.

Side case attachment While compact, the windscreen benefits from repeated wind tunnel testing to optimize its shape, providing highly effective shielding for a more comfortable ride. Designing dedicated mounting clips to accommodate the optional side cases makes realizes an integrated design that matches the bike. The large aluminum rear carrier with 8.5kg maximum capacity is fitted with hooks for attaching straps and that can also be used for attaching the optional top case. Wheels, tires and brakes The sporty flair of newly designed 10-spoke wheels pairs with IRC tires that provide a solid grip on the road. Stopping power is provided by Petal-type front and rear disc brakes. An Antilock Brake System (ABS)*2 made by BOSCH is also available*3 to deliver yet greater confidence and control.
