The Suzuki V-Strom SX is a strong contender apart from the Royal Enfield Himalayan.

I own a 2012 Royal Enfield Classic 500. Since it’s been 10 years, I am planning to buy a new one and I am looking for a tourer with a budget of Rs 3 lakh-3.5 lakh. I have ridden the Himalayan but it feels a bit low-powered on highways. Which one would you recommend?

Autocar India says: We’d recommend you try out the Suzuki V-Strom SX. While not an off-road focussed motorcycle like the Himalayan, it is an excellent tourer with a very comfortable and spacious riding position, good suspension and a strong engine. The Suzuki’s 250cc engine allows it to cruise at 120kph and its top speed is above 140kph. It will also fit comfortably within your budget and the only thing you need to check is if you are comfortable with the 835mm seat height.
