New V-Strom 250 from Suzuki pictured in Japan.

This is a first-look picture from the Japanese of the 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 250 a motorcycle that is joining the current V-Strom 1000 and 650cc versions of the road-biased semi-Adventure bike.

Details are sparse at the moment about this motorcycle and there’s so far been no news about whether or not this is going to make it to Europe or just be a Japan-only bike. But we do know that this baby V-Strom will line up alongside a heavily-revised GSR250X which will be a suped-up version of the current Inazuma and it is likely that both might not make it over here, they cold stay as southern-hemisphere motorcycles only.


If we hear anything about the little Strom heading our way, we’ll let you know.
