Coming late Spring 2017.
Introducing the GSX250R a sports machine that brings the excitement and riding satisfaction of Suzuki’s sport bike heritage to a broader audience. Featuring sporty good looks, responsive yet easy-to-control performance, nimble handling, and a comfortable riding position, the GSX250R is equally at home on the daily commute as it is when out on weekend rides for fun. Featuring positive response, a broad power band, ease of control and a class-leading level of fuel efficiency, the performance realised by the GSX250R goes beyond what one would normally expect from a 250cc motorcycle. Each aspect of its performance is optimised to fully exploit the bike’s potential and deliver pure riding pleasure, whether riding in town or heading out on a long countryside run.
GSX250R Key Features
The 248cc parallel twin engine that powers the GSX250R 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 class-leading levels of fuel economy*1 and clean performance. With a full tank of fuel, the GSX250R has a riding range of approximately 298 miles*2. The cam profile for the GSX250R delivers maximum acceleration performance at speeds between 12 mph to 55 mph, as this is the range that is used most often. As an additional benefit, the cam profile also suppresses noise generation to deliver a smoother, more pleasant ride.
Highly efficient, lightweight exhaust system
The two-into-one exhaust system for the GSX250R features an optimised shape for the chamber in front of the catalyser. This maximises acceleration performance at mid-range speeds, while the efficiency of the system also reduces exhaust emissions. The silencer adopts a shape that contributes to better engine output and torque by reducing power loss. It delivers a pleasing sound while its design also contributes to better cornering.
Designed to Perform
The sporty flair of newly designed 10-spoke wheels pairs with tyres that provide strong grip on the road. Stopping power is provided by petal-type front and rear disc brakes. An Antilock Brake System (ABS)*3 made by Bosch is also equipped to deliver yet greater confidence and control.
Sports Handlebars and KYB Suspension
The relatively low mounting point of the clip-on left and right handlebars is sporty, but at the same time designed to provide a comfortable riding position that is capable around town or on longer rides. Front and rear KYB suspension with custom settings contributes to weight reduction and retains reassuring handling characteristics, while at the same time adding a sporty feel.
Enhancing the sporty, aggressive look and futuristic flair of the GSX250R are newly designed surface-emitting LEDs employed by the position lamps up front and the taillight in the rear. Their smooth edge-to-edge illumination and the chevron-like shape that flanks the headlight create a truly distinctive and highly appealing lighting.
Full LCD instrumentation
The GSX250R features a reverse-lit LCD instrument panel. Readouts include the speedometer, tachometer, gear position and RPM indicator, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption and oil change timing indicators, and a clock.
*1 4-stroke 2-cylinder 250cc class (As of October 2016).
*2 Calculated based on the Worldwide Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC mode) exhaust emissions measuring conditions measured by Suzuki. Actual fuel economy and riding range may differ owing to differences in conditions such as the weather, road, rider behaviour and maintenance.
*3 ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
