Proudly carrying on the heritage of the V-Strom series, the V-Strom 250 ABS is dedicated to fine quality that will ignite your spirit of adventure.

The instant you take to the road, you sense a change in the breeze and in the air that surrounds you. It’s a feeling that makes you want to ride as far as you can for as long as you can while enjoying the bike’s highly emotional styling. The V-Strom 250 ABS is crafted to soundly respond to all these expectations.
