@sunny. Simply limpid pictures. The red going to the pink was lovely. As usual, tidy review. Thanks for the heads up.

This is a very strange bike. To me, it looks like Suzuki screwed up really big-time here and gave this ultra vital design brief to some novice design team member. It looks just like what a pumped up, pimped out Libero would have thought of looking like in circa 2013.

Twins like the N250, upright seating like the KTM200, wide seat like the Karizma family, priced to undercut the H250. a smorgasbord of design cues from different bikes, aimed at achieving an overall competitive advantage but failing to strike even one clear, unpolluted note and instead, ending up in disharmony.

For me, the most discordant design cues was a lovely wide and long seat for those long cruises across the country, an effective fly screen but a short geared engine? A superstructure for the highway but an engine for traffic light GPs? I wonder if Suzuki did anything like an STP analysis before laying pen to paper for the initial renderings of this bike.

Ever since the N650 and the H650 landed here, I was waiting for Suzuki to set the cat among the pigeons by bringing in the V Strom 650. Ok, fine, the Indian market has less volume for even CBU middleweights, leave alone CKDs. So, the next best thing?

Honey I Shrunk The Bike the V Strom 650 into a parallel twin 250 with the exact same set of clothes as its larger brother, provide the Adventure model option at minimal extra expense and then shout from the rooftops that they are giving us the designed-for-India-only (snob value) model of one of the most successful motorcycles of all time. At the same time, offer a naked street fighter with lowered clip-ons, snarly exhaust et al.

The semi-faired F250 for the elder bro and his wife, the naked N250 for the younger one with his girl and gang. The competition would have simply been obliterated before the first round was fired.

Radical problems need radically innovative solutions. To think that this is the same company that makes the fastest street-legal bike in the world, a masterpiece which I am scared even to look at, it is so evil? Tch, tch.

Suzy baby, you really lost your mojo here, old girl.
