Suzuki’s V-Strom series has won the hearts of riders around the world and established itself as one of the leading names in the adventure motorcycle segment since the V-Strom 1000 debuted in 2002 and the V-Strom 650 joined the line-up in 2004. Suzuki now brings the same excitement, riding pleasure and adventure versatility to a broader audience; riders who are buying their first motorcycle, riders returning to two wheels after a long absence, riders looking for a more manageable lightweight machine and many others too.
The 248cc parallel twin engine that powers the V-Strom 250 has undergone thorough analysis and optimisation to maximise low- to mid-range torque and provide a powerful ride that features ease of control. The overall efficiency achieved also helps realise high levels of fuel economy and clean performance. With a full tank of fuel, the V-Strom 250 has a riding range of over 310 miles.
The V-Strom 250 protects its rider from the elements with a compact windscreen that benefits from repeated wind tunnel testing to optimise its shape, providing highly effective shielding for a more comfortable ride.

It is our goal at Bike Rentals Japan to give the customer total satisfaction.
On arrival at our rental shop you will be greeted by one of us who will take any outstanding details that were not confirmed with the online booking and finalise the contract to get you on the bike as soon as possible. At this stage we will confirm that you have viewed the safe riding in Japan video, fit you up with any gear that you may need, go over the bike to check off any prior damage and show you how to use the bike’s specific functions or controls as well as go over the standard equipment supplied. If you have booked a self guided tour and we haven’t supplied the route information previously then we will upload that to your smart phone at this time. We will also answer any questions you may have about the terms and conditions, the bike or your chosen tour route. Bike Rental Japan’s emergency numbers will also be supplied and confirmed and then you are free to get going on your adventure. This process can take as little as 10 minutes, however with a larger amount of outstanding details to be taken, gear fitment and adjustment, plus tour upload and explanations this can take much longer so please be prepared for that.
On return of the bike, everyone has a different experience here so we would love to listen to your adventure stories! We then give the bike a final inspection and if everything is fine you are freeto leave. Depending on how you got to our shop, the train station is only minutes away so youcan head on or return to Osaka with some of the best memories of a lifetime!

For our customer’s convenience. Essential for highway travel in Japan, you can pay cash but withgloves etc this is a huge holdup compared to just riding through the toll gates.
Please note ETC (Electronic Highway Toll Collection) card rental.
Although we hope you stay off the highways and enjoy the back roads as much as possible it is sometimes necessary to use highways to make up time so most of our bikes are equipped with an ETC machine. ETC cards are available to rent if required at a rate of 1000 for the rental period. Accumulated tolls will be charged to the customer’s registered credit card at a later date when we receive the bill plus a 4% credit card processing fee. ETC cards work like credit cards and are linked to our shop’s credit card so are limited in number and may not be available, so we urge you to pay cash on the highways at the GREEN toll gates. Please select ETC card rental on the “Accessories” section of the booking form.
