Suzuki GSX250R Overview
This 248cc machine is ideal for commuting, easy to handle and control at slow speeds, it’s perfect for filtering between cars. With the GSX250R you look the part as well, with amazing paintwork that has a shine in sunlight, the bike appears sporty and of a larger capacity.
The 248cc parallel twin motor machine is capable of producing 24.7bhp, which does not make it the fastest or powerful machine, though this to be expected for an A2 model. Though, when pushed to the limit, it is able to keep up with motorway traffic, just. This is why it is much more suited to towns and commuting where it is not required to go around 70mph.
The back-lit LCD dash is clear and easy to use, featuring a speedometer, tachometer, gear position and RPM indicator, odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption and oil change timing indicators, and a clock. While the large mirrors no doubt help to stay safe on busy roads when commuting.
The gearbox has come under some scrutiny as it has been known to fail when going from neutral into first gear.

Suzuki GSX250R Insurance
Very comfortable with relatively low seat and handlebars sporty but not too low.
No problems so far. Engine is tested and solid.
Single front disc brake but good feel and powerful enough for speeds the bike is capable of.
Ride is generally good, bike is a bit heavier than it could be but still turns in easily.
It's a 250 twin so not a powerful engine, however I give it 4 as it has a wide torque spread making it both peppy and forgiving to ride.
Super cheap. Get 90 mpg and insurance is low.
