Review: Likes And Dislikes
We rode the V-Strom SX extensively and put it through its paces. Here’s what we liked and disliked about the smallest V-Strom.
The V-Strom SX is available in a total of three colours and they’re all pretty eye-catching. It can hence get a bit difficult picking the right one. Well, fret not! We're here to help you select the one that suits your taste and needs the best.
While the V-Strom SX ticks a lot of boxes, at Rs 2,11,600 (ex-showroom Delhi), it’s Rs 30,200 more than the Suzuki Gixxer 250.
With that price tag and wearing an ADV personality, it directly comes in the crosshairs of established adventure bikes from a plethora of brands. So, if you’re looking for a chill road touring bike, something that looks premium and offers modern features, the V-Strom 250 SX is worth considering. But if you’re keen on going off-road and hitting some hardcore trails, it isn’t the bike for you.
