Big Boy Pants Part 2 : V-Strom 250

v-strom 250

While there is thus far no indication that this pint size adventurist  will be coming to Canada it does make for  interesting news.  No longer is the fan favourite, the V-Strom 650, the little bike and in fact that bike  is huge in displacement compared to the 250. While sporting the ADV cues of its larger namesakes and powered by a small parallel twin,  the V-Strom 250 (obviously they couldn’t go with P-Strom) is more about the ergonomics and comforts of the ADV class than it is about tackling the Dempster Highway and around town if should make for a admirable commuter with horsepower in the 25-ish range. Suddenly with the arrival of this Strom and the new GSX-R250 (which is coming to Canada), Suzuki has completely brought their small bike offerings into the modern world. Way to go Suzuki.
