Suzuki GZ 250



The small carries on to 2010 without any and, even more, it the gray coloring available for model years and simply to black. Based on a simple that is best concluded by the “why fix it if it ain’t broken?”, the Marauder is being powered by the economical 249cc four-…, SOHC, 2-valve engine Twin Dome Combustion (TDCC) put at everyone’s disposal as the is 27.8 inches from the and the bike’s curb weight is of 331 lbs.


If you thought 2010 is just an exception and the gets its fair share of on certain intervals, checking out the evolution will change opinion. First introduced in the Suzuki GZ250, also the Marauder, used the GN250 and the looks of the VZ800 Marauder in to do a first great impression and pretty much it.

The seat hasn’t been modified since, but the first Marauder did an impressive 302 lbs. Small, but the 249cc single-cylinder, SOHC, engine produced 20.1 at 8,000 rpm and 18.7 Nm at 7,000 which is pretty decent nowadays.

Future production didn’t brought any upgrades or the smallest change despite the new schemes with which juggled almost every

Ever since 2004, the GZ250 featured improved economy as a result of a redesigned chamber into a Twin shape. The bike was exactly the as the one selling today.


may start thinking about their smallest cruiser as Motorcycles likes to dominate the category with the V Star The engine on this thing is a 249cc air-cooled SOHC, but about where the similarities end as the V-twin configuration with 2 per cylinder set the Star apart the easily neglected Suzuki.

more of a temptation than the the V Star 250 ads a 27.0 inches height and 324 lb wet weight on top of that. will also have to mileage: 82 mpg (Suzuki) and 78 mpg (Star).

But if looking for something in between the and the Star, Honda is here to The Rebel is an entry-level bike by a docile 234cc air-cooled twin-cylinder, SOHC, two valves per unit. With the lowest height in its class (26.6 and the exact same curb as the Suzuki (331 lbs), is quite an alternative.


not suffered any design change since its introduction, the Suzuki proves that timeless don’t need any by their So what is it that makes crave for this model each year that and each missed revamp?

For starters, the smooth, flawless of the bigger Marauder describe the and gas tank while the spoke set it closer to the classic style as as the multitude of chromed pieces mirrors and instrument covers, and the rear fender ornaments).

It be nice to see a V-Twin engine of the single-cylinder one underneath that gas as that is what practically a cruiser, but, the way we see things, are few chances for that to happen soon.

The only color available for 2010 is the simple If it was good enough for Henry it is also good enough for Suzuki.

Test Drive

The that the bike is virtually ever since 2004 an advantage after all. For you can ride a 2005 model and ever be allowed to call the dated.

Having gone the specs and features, there anything in particular that I want to test despite the characteristics and the engine’s capabilities.

weight, the GZ is very easy to in tight parking lot conditions, no impression of being a cruiser at the hand. The seat is low, it easy to flat foot the even for short people or that are just starting to Also, with the handlebars at reach and forward positioned riding down the boulevard for a comfortable experience.

The power source beneath you is of getting you in front of car columns a little bit of talent in the shifting but if you’re not in a hurry you can also your way to that red light bothering anything but your developing riding skills. in city traffic, it is very to gain experience on the Suzuki as the bike is versatility itself and it helps you save money its scooter-like fuel consumption.

I could have appreciated was a nice, V-Twin sound, but I that its carbureted single-cylinder is enough even for those who long been riding and now look for an economical and easy of transportation, especially through the jungle.

I am saying that once you take this down the interstate you suddenly like you have outgrown the 20 engine even if you’ve started to ride. But that’s no because as soon as you arrive in the town you start counting the and notice how forgiving the bike is. Also, if you plan on covering a lot of on a daily basis, it is recommended you buy a windscreen and mount on it even you won’t be getting it above 70 mph often.

Suspensions are nice and comfy in simplicity and they soak up in the road with no stress on the back. Even speed are easy to deal with, but have to lift the bottom of the if passing on a little too fast, like on any other cruiser.

The feels stable at any speeds mostly because it doesn’t go fast) and in case of emergency the front disc brake and drum brake are there to sufficient stopping power. Yet the bike’s 331 lbs wet weight proves

Overall, the Suzuki GZ250 is a nice little motorcycle I would recommend both to and experienced riders who look for a commuting solution as the bike is for gaining experience and great fun


For 2010, Suzuki on selling the GZ250 for a suggested price of just in between of the Star’s ($3,990) and Honda’s Gee, I wonder what translates into.


Not a bike for speed but one that can do the job in a very efficient way and for a large category of riders, the Suzuki GZ250 stands as the level solution in its category. means enough speed for needed, awesome fuel comfort and a very good
