    On that note, we take a look at some of the best reasons why you should consider getting the Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX.

    1. Reasonably priced

    First reason, as we briefly mentioned above, is its price.

    If you look at the adventure bike segment, you will be surprised to see price tags ranging from P800,000 (for Japanese models) to P1.6 million (for European brands). Now for that much, you might be able to get a small hatchback like the Suzuki S-Presso (priced from P620,000) or a sporty multi-purpose vehicle such as the Hyundai Stargazer X (priced at P1.348 million).

    So, if you want to take on the beaten path without having to crack the piggybank, a smaller go-anywhere model like the Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX will do.

    It is priced at just P229,000, making it an attainable motorcycle for those who want that sporty rugged appeal.

    What’s more, for less than P230,000, you can get a motorcycle with a decent powertrain and suspension setup. At its core is an oil-cooled 26-horsepower gasoline mill mated to a six-speed constant mesh transmission coupled with components like a telescopic, oil-damped front fork and swing arm-type rear struts. It also gets disc brakes — front and back — for ample stopping power.

    2. Adventure-ready

    The Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX is an adventure-ready motorcycle straight out of the factory.

    As one would expect, it packs off-road-specific features like a large windshield and knuckle guards to protect the rider from the elements as well as an engine guard to safekeep the aforementioned powerplant and other underside components from damage.

    Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX Promo

    In addition, the Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX comes with a grab bar and rear carrier that can be fitted with a top box. Speaking of which, Suzuki has an ongoing promotion for the motorcycle that grants buyers a free 45-liter motobox with every purchase of the V-Strom 250 SX. The said promo runs until March 31, 2024.

    3. Technologically-packed bike

    The Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX is also a feature-packed model, tech-wise. To begin with, the mid-range off-roader is fitted with the Suzuki Oil Cooling System, which warms up the engine quickly and maintains the optimal temperature of the engine.

    It also gets a dual-channel anti-lock brake system that monitors the front and rear wheel speeds individually and matches stopping power to available traction, to provide riders with more confidence, especially when taking on rough, unpaved roads.

    Suzuki also slapped the V-Strom 250 SX with a fully digital instrument panel that provides riders with an easy-to-ready display — day or night.

    It also sports a USB outlet, for added functionality.

    Conclusion

    The V-Strom 250 SX is a good choice for riders who travel both long and short distances without the need to use the Philippine expressway system.

    It is packed with plenty of features and offers a highly-capable powertrain allowing you to conquer almost any terrain.
