My Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX comes home: 8 observations after 1000 km

Took it out on a 650 km road trip, involving some highway riding, lots of twisties and a bit of off-roading.

BHPian madhukar_n recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Took delivery of the Suzuki V-Strom SX on 4th June. I got it in Sapthagiri Suzuki and they had organised an event in Tribal adventure for the delivery and also for people to test ride the bike. I guess they had invited a few riding clubs too. The event was good I suppose, I just took delivery of the bike and rode it back home.

These last 2 weekends I had taken it for rides. The last weekend was a 650 km ride involving lots of twists, some off-road, highways, and a ride in rain & mud because of the rain. My opinion on the bike so far:

Finished 1000 km and given for service.

So far only addition is a Givi top box. During the service, I asked to install the crash guard.

And above all, for some reason, this bike catches the eye more than my Bonnie (probably the yellow).

Update: The total bill was Rs 2180, out of that Rs 750 was for the crash bar and 350 for the tank protection sticker.

Here are some of the photos.
