Suzuki DL250 V-Strom (2017 onwards)

The Suzuki DL250 V-Strom is a lightweight adventure bike that looks and feels more like a bigger motorcycle. It is an easy to ride machine which you can get for much cheaper than some of the alternatives such as the BMW G310GS or Kawasaki Versys X-300.

The motorcycle might fall into the adventure category, but it suits best for everyday commuting. It comes with a large fuel tank that will provide up to 330 miles of range, which is a phenomenal achievement for such a small bike.

Unfortunately, the bike is not comfortable nor powerful enough for long distance touring. Also, the build quality could be better.
