Suzuki V-Strom SX launched in IndiaPosted On: April 10, 2022 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Suzuki has launched a new adventure motorcycle–the V-Storm SX–in India. The new bike is the younger version of the 650XT from Suzuki’s V-Strom series. It gets similar design and styling but comes with a 250cc engine borrowed from the Gixxer 250 series.
The X-Strom SX has been launched in three colour options: Champion Yellow No. 2, Pearl Blaze Orange, and Glass Sparkle Black, at a price of INR 2.11 lakh.
Design and features
The V-Strom SX takes a lot of design cues from its older and bigger sibling: the V-Strom 650XT. The bike’s front fascia gets a beak design (inspired by the DR-Z racer and DR-BIG off-road models), LED headlights, windscreen, and knuckle covers. The bike comes with a separated seat, with the pillion rider seat raised a bit higher, rubber footrest, and rear carrier or grab bar. On the rear, the bike gets LED combination lights and dual-exit muffler.
The new adventure bike comes with a large LED instrument console (compatible with a Suzuki Ride Connect application) that displays missed call alerts, caller ID, phone battery level, speed exceeding alert, turn-by-turn navigation, call/SMS/WhatApp alert, and ETA updates, among others.

The V-Strom SX’s engine is based on Suzuki’s Gixxer 250 series. Powering the bike is a 249 cc, oil-cooled (SOCS) engine–mated to a six-speed gearbox–that generates a power of 26 hp and a torque of 22.2 Nm.
