    While popular overseas you don’t see many VanVans in New Zealand which is a shame, I reckon they’d make an awesome beginner ADV bike for the shorter of leg or those with less confidence as well as just being an all round fun bike.

    For 2016 Suzuki has created a big brother version with 200cc’s.

    The VanVan 125 is a surprisingly good performer in the Suzuki range, and for 2016 it gets a visually identical bigger brother, boasting a 74cc capacity increase for its air/oil-cooled, fuel injected single cylinder engine.

    The rest of the bike remains essentially the same, with its trademark balloon 130 and 180 section tyres, tiny 6.5litre fuel tank and relatively low 770mm seat height.
