Suzuki v-strom sx review

2 months ago by Yagyesh 1,938 views

This bike is very close to my heart. The suzuki v-strom sx looks like a proper adv. It has all the dimensions and characteristics required to be classified as a bike meant for the long haul, be it on the road or off it. Take one glance and you’re immediately reminded of its bigger siblings, the v-strom 650 xt and the bigger 1050 albeit in a significantly smaller package. Look closer and you will start to see elements of the bike that it is based on — the gixxer 250. The headlight, the engine, the brake setup. The tail light of the bike and the majority of the tail section resemble that of the previous generation of the gixxer 150. Coming back to the adv bit, the bike has a proper front fairing with a relatively tall non-adjustable windscreen that does a good job of deflecting wind away from the rider. There’s a wide handlebar which gets plastic knuckle guards, a comfortable, roomy seat, and crucially for the adv formula a 19-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear wheel. In terms of colour schemes, you have three to choose from. Black, the orange that I tested and the yellow, which makes the bike look the most like a bonafide v-strom.

    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.

    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 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.

    As far as the reviews and myself owning a couple of adv bikes, this engine is punchy, well low and mid-range power as it directly derived from the gixxer 250 which can clock a top speed of 150(may differ on body weight of rider) could have given spoke wheels and the front fork to be at least 2-3 inches taller, and the fuel capacity to a 15l, but never the less, still a good motorcycle, as mine was the first booking in karnataka.

Suzuki V-Strom SX: First Ride Review

Suzuki V-Strom SX: First Ride Review

27 May 2022
Anuj Mishra

Suzuki is touting it as a ‘sports adventure tourer’. You see, the suffix ‘sports’ in its name and the prohibition imposed on us from taking the bike off-road during this ride clearly indicate that this is not an enduro by any stretch. So, is it any good on the road then?
