2023 Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 Storms Into Philippines Market

2023 Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 launch in Philippines have brought the same model that debuted in India carrying spec as our country…

So, after launching first in the Indian market back in April 2022, Suzuki have taken their latest V-Strom SX 250 sports-tourer and have launched it in the Philippines market. 

The Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 is the same model that has received a positive response from the Indian biking community. It is not the twin-cylinder V-Strom 250 which some overseas markets have on sale. 

The bookings for the 2023 V-Strom SX 250 have begun in the Philippines market with the deliveries scheduled to commence from the first quarter of 2023 (January – March 2023).

As mentioned before, the Philippine market has received the same spec V-Strom SX 250 model as we have in India. The design of the motorcycle is heavily inspired by the bigger V-Strom 650 XT and small design cues from the bigger V-Strom 1000. This means it sports a tall stance and a slimmer mid-section to facilitate a better grip of the bike using the rider’s legs.

Furthermore, it though is a sports-tourer machine, it is offered with multiple adventure-centric elements like knuckle guards, a tall windscreen, and a rear luggage rack as standard. On the features list, the V-Strom is generously equipped with an LCD dash, Bluetooth connectivity, an LED headlamp and tail-lamp, and a USB charger. 

Hardware-wise, It is powered by a 249 cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine that has real punch in the mid-revs and is impressively refined. It boasts  26 HP and 22.2 Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It rides on a 19-17-inch alloy wheel combination covered with block-pattern tyres and is suspended on conventional telescopic forks and a monoshock. Braking, meanwhile, is taken care of by a single disc at both ends aided by ABS as standard. 

In India, the Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 is priced at Rs 2.12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and rivals the KTM 250 Adventure directly.
