    Bought this machine on 21st June 2022. On-road price was around 276k (kerala). It took around 14 days to deliver the bike after booking. I had some other options in a similar price range. But when I took the test ride.. Oh, man. It rode straight to my heart.
    It gives you a very relaxed and upright riding posture. Foot pegs are placed a little backward which is cool. Super wide seats and it is on a softer side (not too soft but it never lacks comfort) . Felt very light once it starts to roll. The engine is very much refined and gear shifts are precise. You don't feel any vibrations even at higher speeds. The power delivery is linear, unlike the ktms. But it doesn't mean that you will miss the fun factor. You can cruise at 120s effortlessly. The initial pick-up is impressive. For 0-100 it will take below 10 sec. It is easy to ride a bike in cities and highways. (i haven't checked the offloading capabilities.) suspension is neither too hard nor too soft. Potholes/cracked or humpy bumpy roads are peanuts for this. Very easy to maneuver. It gives enough confidence in cornering as well. All-day touring is just a piece of cake. Braking efficiency is pretty decent. The seat height may raise an issue for some as I am 5'10 and I don't get a well-planted foot.
    I have done my first service @ 900 km and it cost me around 1200 rs. I waited for around 5 hrs to get the job done and it was a wee bit irritating.
    Coming the cons which I noticed are
    1. Illumination could have been better
    2. You will have to check the chain tightness after every 300 kms
    3. Crash guards are not available
    4. The wind visor is not adjustable and the wind blast hits right on your face at higher speeds.

  • Comfy bike for indian roads

    1 year ago


    Stephenmerit

    An ideal bike for everyday commutes.
    In-city rides bumps in roads are always very common and can be easily manageable in this segment of bikes with its high suspension and as well as it's wider tires.
    Has a good mileage approx of 41kmpl at average city traffic in Bangalore with mild throttling.
    In highway cruising it's awesome in its miles when you ride smoothly will give upto 47 at 80-90kmph
    Overall it's good to go vehicle
    Also, it has a satisfying road presence.

    I took the bike for a spin from gurgoan to sainj valley in himachal. With stuffed shad 33 topbox, pillion of 66kgs and myself of 84kgs. 1400kms plus in 3 days. The bike is very comfortable for both. Road presence is amazing. Fuel economy is superb, it gave me 40kmpl for total trip, even though I was riding it above 110 and going slow while climbing. Engine is super smooth. No where the belly touched the ground. Front suspension bottoms out rarely, but it does, in out case it did 2 times when we encountered mountain like speedbreaker. Personaly I feel navigation aid(tbt) is not much of a use as one will mount phone with charging cable plugged . Headlight is good and beam is powerful. Follow the right tyre pressure chart and comfort level increases. This bike doesn't stall at all whatsoever. Did 1st service from delhi before the 1400kms ride, service is average. Position of instrument cluster is very good and visibility is good as well. Foot peg position for both rider and pillion could be better. Exhaust could be more raised. Plastic quality and fitting is acceptable. Clutch is bit heavier, accelerator gets harder after 80kmph. Tried both the seats i.E stock one and lower seat. Lower seat is not as comfortable as stock one as it lacks cushioning. Small chain guard could be installed.
    Overall a very good product, reliable and easy to ride. Amazing fuel economy. Amazing road presence. Good comfort. Good headlamp. Very linear acceleration.

  • The best touring monster

    1 year ago


    Prakash M

    The best touring monster, I feel very very comfortable while I'm riding it too long drives, it's getting all people's attention on the roads I feel like ok I'm not wasting money, not boring while riding too long every gear shifting is very surprised I'm impressed
    Cons
    No hazard lights
    No liquid cooling system
    Engine very noisy
    Ladies foot rest missing
    Center stand missing
    Because it's a too high price to compare other bikes. Other brands give all features at low cost...

  • Best long touring bike

    1 year ago


    Lathesh Rao

    This is the best long-touring bike. The seat is very comfortable, and the engine is also very smooth. And don't feel any vibration in this machine. This bike looks very good,
    Servicing is all good. And it's maintenance also easy. And you think about which is the best bike for a long ride. I recommended this as best.

  • Hassle-free commuter

    Vinay K

    Buying experience okay.
    Engine is good and very soft tuned, riding is not a problem for taller guys (>5.9")
    Looks very big and height, can be used for daily commuting as well as touring, for adventure like things this is not best bike since suspension is not upto the mark
    Pros : good engine, easy to handle in traffic, good torque, riding on this 250 machine is joy, riding angle also good.
    Cons : bit costly, suspension and brakes could have been better.

    Vaishnav A

    I got delivery within two days. Daily 30 km I use to ride.
    The bike is too smooth and 100% preferable for a long ride.
    Need some eye on the back side design.
    Cons: a headlight is not that effective on highways.
    if the abs switching option is there it means off-roading will be a little bit smoother.

  • The perfect bike.

    1 year ago


    Atit Desai

    I bought the bike immediately after it gets launched. The buying experience was amazing the S. P. Suzuki Kandivali dealership had a superb salesman.
    Riding this bike in the city or highway is amazing its light, fast, stable, and wonderful seat.
    The yellow colour is vibrant and different and its stands out in the crowd. The bike looks awesome.
    This bike is good for all kinds of roads. On highways 100 / 120 km/hr is smooth. You can ride for hours on this bike without any problems.
    The service experience is not that good for me had some paint-related issues but all got resolved by Suzuki.
    Pros
    Lightweight
    Great seats
    Good breaks
    Handling is good
    Good mileage
    Good pickup
    No vibration
    Refined engine
    Stable at top speeds
    Cons
    The front suspension travel is just 120 mm which is less I think and it's stiff.
    The silencer design could be better.

  • Much appreciated suzuki. One of the best in class machine.

    1 year ago


    Jibbzs

    Bought this machine on 21st June 2022. On-road price was around 276k (kerala). It took around 14 days to deliver the bike after booking. I had some other options in a similar price range. But when I took the test ride.. Oh, man. It rode straight to my heart.
    It gives you a very relaxed and upright riding posture. Foot pegs are placed a little backward which is cool. Super wide seats and it is on a softer side (not too soft but it never lacks comfort) . Felt very light once it starts to roll. The engine is very much refined and gear shifts are precise. You don't feel any vibrations even at higher speeds. The power delivery is linear, unlike the ktms. But it doesn't mean that you will miss the fun factor. You can cruise at 120s effortlessly. The initial pick-up is impressive. For 0-100 it will take below 10 sec. It is easy to ride a bike in cities and highways. (i haven't checked the offloading capabilities.) suspension is neither too hard nor too soft. Potholes/cracked or humpy bumpy roads are peanuts for this. Very easy to maneuver. It gives enough confidence in cornering as well. All-day touring is just a piece of cake. Braking efficiency is pretty decent. The seat height may raise an issue for some as I am 5'10 and I don't get a well-planted foot.
    I have done my first service @ 900 km and it cost me around 1200 rs. I waited for around 5 hrs to get the job done and it was a wee bit irritating.
    Coming the cons which I noticed are
    1. Illumination could have been better
    2. You will have to check the chain tightness after every 300 kms
    3. Crash guards are not available
    4. The wind visor is not adjustable and the wind blast hits right on your face at higher speeds.

  • Comfy bike for indian roads

    1 year ago


    Stephenmerit

    An ideal bike for everyday commutes.
    In-city rides bumps in roads are always very common and can be easily manageable in this segment of bikes with its high suspension and as well as it's wider tires.
    Has a good mileage approx of 41kmpl at average city traffic in Bangalore with mild throttling.
    In highway cruising it's awesome in its miles when you ride smoothly will give upto 47 at 80-90kmph
    Overall it's good to go vehicle
    Also, it has a satisfying road presence.

    I took the bike for a spin from gurgoan to sainj valley in himachal. With stuffed shad 33 topbox, pillion of 66kgs and myself of 84kgs. 1400kms plus in 3 days. The bike is very comfortable for both. Road presence is amazing. Fuel economy is superb, it gave me 40kmpl for total trip, even though I was riding it above 110 and going slow while climbing. Engine is super smooth. No where the belly touched the ground. Front suspension bottoms out rarely, but it does, in out case it did 2 times when we encountered mountain like speedbreaker. Personaly I feel navigation aid(tbt) is not much of a use as one will mount phone with charging cable plugged . Headlight is good and beam is powerful. Follow the right tyre pressure chart and comfort level increases. This bike doesn't stall at all whatsoever. Did 1st service from delhi before the 1400kms ride, service is average. Position of instrument cluster is very good and visibility is good as well. Foot peg position for both rider and pillion could be better. Exhaust could be more raised. Plastic quality and fitting is acceptable. Clutch is bit heavier, accelerator gets harder after 80kmph. Tried both the seats i.E stock one and lower seat. Lower seat is not as comfortable as stock one as it lacks cushioning. Small chain guard could be installed.
    Overall a very good product, reliable and easy to ride. Amazing fuel economy. Amazing road presence. Good comfort. Good headlamp. Very linear acceleration.

  • The best touring monster

    Prakash M

    The best touring monster, I feel very very comfortable while I'm riding it too long drives, it's getting all people's attention on the roads I feel like ok I'm not wasting money, not boring while riding too long every gear shifting is very surprised I'm impressed
    Cons
    No hazard lights
    No liquid cooling system
    Engine very noisy
    Ladies foot rest missing
    Center stand missing
    Because it's a too high price to compare other bikes. Other brands give all features at low cost...

    Lathesh Rao

    This is the best long-touring bike. The seat is very comfortable, and the engine is also very smooth. And don't feel any vibration in this machine. This bike looks very good,
    Servicing is all good. And it's maintenance also easy. And you think about which is the best bike for a long ride. I recommended this as best.

    Buying experience okay.
    Engine is good and very soft tuned, riding is not a problem for taller guys (>5.9")
    Looks very big and height, can be used for daily commuting as well as touring, for adventure like things this is not best bike since suspension is not upto the mark
    Pros : good engine, easy to handle in traffic, good torque, riding on this 250 machine is joy, riding angle also good.
    Cons : bit costly, suspension and brakes could have been better.

    I got delivery within two days. Daily 30 km I use to ride.
    The bike is too smooth and 100% preferable for a long ride.
    Need some eye on the back side design.
    Cons: a headlight is not that effective on highways.
    if the abs switching option is there it means off-roading will be a little bit smoother.

  • The perfect bike.

    1 year ago


    Atit Desai

    I bought the bike immediately after it gets launched. The buying experience was amazing the S. P. Suzuki Kandivali dealership had a superb salesman.
    Riding this bike in the city or highway is amazing its light, fast, stable, and wonderful seat.
    The yellow colour is vibrant and different and its stands out in the crowd. The bike looks awesome.
    This bike is good for all kinds of roads. On highways 100 / 120 km/hr is smooth. You can ride for hours on this bike without any problems.
    The service experience is not that good for me had some paint-related issues but all got resolved by Suzuki.
    Pros
    Lightweight
    Great seats
    Good breaks
    Handling is good
    Good mileage
    Good pickup
    No vibration
    Refined engine
    Stable at top speeds
    Cons
    The front suspension travel is just 120 mm which is less I think and it's stiff.
    The silencer design could be better.
