Suzuki New Zealand has confirmed pricing for its soon-to-arrive 2023 V-Strom DL250, DL800DE and DL1050 models, with sharper pricing than we expected.
The new DL250SX will become the new entry point into the market with a low price of $6,999 plus on-road costs.
Like the previous attempt at a small bore Strom, Suzuki has given its new V-Strom 250SX a non-V-twin engine with the 2023 250 utilising the same 249cc single-cylinder that’s found in the GSX250.
Suzuki has kept the V-Strom 250’s styling in the family this time around (who remembers the unfortunate circular headlight of the last one?), with the 250SX aping the look of the flagship 1050 models. That means LED lighting and sharp DR Big-inspired lines but in a smaller novice friendly package.
Claimed weight for the V-Strom 250SX is 167kg while the seat height is 835mm. Rolling stock is classic V-Strom sizing of 19 and 17-inch wheels while ground clearance 205mm.
Pulling the 250SX to a halt are disc brakes with Bybre calipers which are backed by dual-channel ABS.
While the V-Strom 250SX isn’t an off-road challenger to the market, it will give Suzuki an appealing entry-level adventure tourer for the LAMS market.
The completely new DL800DE V-Strom, which will introduce Suzuki's all-new 776cc parallel-twin engine platform to the New Zealand market, is priced at $18,999 plus on-roads.
For your money you'll not only get the new kid on the block, but also a elegant TFT dash, quickshifter and switchable rider aids including ABS.
As expected, the 2023 DL1050 range which gives large-capacity Suzuki fans their most versatile V-twin to date, tops the new Suzuki adventure bike lineup with a price of $22,999 for the road-focussed DL1050RR while the 1050DE tops the range at $23,999 plus on roads.
