Other equipment have been carried over as well including the 19-inch front and 17-inch rear tyres with 10-spoke cast aluminium wheels. The bike gets telescopic forks up front and a 7-step preload adjustable monoshock at the rear, while braking performance comes from disc brakes at either end with dual-channel ABS. The wheels are wrapped in dual-purpose tyres. The V-Strom SX also comes with an LCD display and USB charging. The kerb weight stands at 164 kg, which is about 3 kg less than the India-spec model.

The Japanese-spec Suzuki V-Strom SX 250 comes in three colours – Champion Yellow Number Two, Pearl Blaze Orange, and Glass Sparkle Black. The two-wheeler giant will also offer a host of accessories with the quarter-litre adventure tourer that will be available from the factory itself. This includes the top case, accessory bar, fuel tank protector, heated grips and more. Apart from the V-Strom SX, Suzuki Motorcycle India exports the Gixxer 250, Gixxer SF 250, Avenis, Burgman Street 125 and many other models to the Japanese market.
