V-Strom 250

The V-Strom 250 combines slim styling and massive presence in a unique design

that defies its modest engine displacement.

It is highly manoeuvrable on city streets, wonderfully exciting on winding roads,

and thoroughly pleasing as an adventure touring motorcycle.

Proudly carrying on the heritage of the V-Strom series,

the V-Strom 250 is dedicated to fine quality that will ignite your spirit of adventure.

The instant you take to the road, you sense a change in the breeze and in the air that surrounds you.

It’s a feeling that makes you want to ride as far as you can for as long as you can,

while enjoying the bike’s highly emotional styling.

The V-Strom 250 is crafted to soundly respond to all these expectations.

*European Spec. shown with optional accessories.

The V-Strom 250 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 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.

Engine performance

*European Spec. shown with optional accessories.


The cam profile for the V-Strom 250 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.



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.


Thin, low tension piston rings were adopted to reduce friction and the shape of the piston ring grooves was also optimized.



Adopting an open type rectifier contributes to improved fuel economy.

Intake valve

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.

Highly efficient, lightweight exhaust system

The two-into-one exhaust system for the V-Strom 250 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.

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.

The 248cm3 parallel-twin engine that powers the V-Strom 250 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 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.

Chassis design

*European Spec. shown with optional accessories.


While compact, the windscreen benefits from repeated wind tunnel testing to optimize its shape, providing highly effective shielding for a more comfortable ride.

Front wheel

Side case attachment

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.

Petal Type Brake Disc

ABS Unit

Wheels, tires and brakes

The sporty flair 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.

*2: ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

*3: Only equipped on ABS model.


The sufficient Accessories line-up will support you and your partner at all levels of adventure.
