VanVan 200 Can Convert The Toughest Of Critics



Sabrina Giacomini is a contributor for Canada MotoGuide and a hater of small motorcycles, so she wasn’t the biggest fan when it came to the VanVan 200, the smallest motorcycle she has ever ridden on both physically and mechanically.

They may be more affordable and easier to maneuver around city streets, but those 300cc engines just isn’t enough for her highway commuting needs. At least that was her mindset until the VanVan 200 came along.

What’s appealing is just how little effort the VanVan puts into its appearance, instead of trying to look like a smaller version of larger models under Suzuki, it presents itself as a cute alternative. At just $4,599, the VanVan is cheap enough to be purchased as a secondary joy ride bike, though riding at 100 km/h on freeways may feel daunting.

While riding the tiny couch on wheels, Giacomini didn’t take herself seriously and probably had a lot more fun than the other full-sized bike riders who snubbed her wave. She even took it to the 2017 Dawn2Dusk rally 600 kilometres away.

That’s twelve hours of working the VanVan’s 199 cc, air-cooled, one-cylinder engine and it powered through the whole ride easily. Other motorcycles may require an iron butt, but the tiny bike’s cushiony leather seat combined with upright ergonomics made for a comfortable ride.

After their time together, the 2017 Suzuki VanVan managed to convert Giacomini into a believer.

I must say that of all bikes to convert me this was the easiest because having seen the Grom and all it has to offer (or the lack of it), the value this Van Van offers becomes very clear and easy to accept. Couldn't ask for a better bike, although i don't have it yet! Hopefully soon.

And unlike the Chinese-made Grom, the VanVan is built in Japan!

Good looking bike. But what about fuel economy?
