In some neighbourhoods of if you don’t have a parking on your motorcycle, you can’t it overnight on the street. They’ll you a ticket worth $30 just for your permit improperly (by it to a helmet lock instead of a for instance), so imagine what fine you for actually parking you can’t.

That’s right, $30 proves that Toronto’s bureaucracy has no sense of humour and imagination. You don’t want to with them.

Parking for motorcycles are free, but you need to that you own the bike for which seeking a permit, and that tricky when you don’t own the bike. For example, if you work at a magazine and regularly acquire from manufacturers’ “press The people who give out parking are good at spotting hand-faked papers, so in this case, you can ride a bike home work, you’d better get it off the before midnight or you’ll a ticket, and those things can add up a month or two.

Nice, then, that the TU250X is such a small, and unobtrusive motorcycle. So small and in fact, that you can push it the kitchen table-sized lawn in of the house for an overnight stay and not out in a sweat, or annoy your The Suzuki TU250 is so nearly that you could probably leave it on the street anyway, and so ordinary that no one would to steal it.

It’s a plain paper wrapping of a bike, and nothing steamy inside it.

it’s a good bike. testers thought it was about as attractive as a plain brown potato, but to the eyes of others it is not far away from the look of icon of motorcycle design, the Sportster, or from something a ’60s-era Triumph Tiger.

those are different motorcycles, but possess a commonality of line, much like the line of bike, which flows convex curve of fuel to reverse curve of the small then back up to the rear and around the back wheel; fluid and organic, unlike the synthetic line of, say, a 250 or 600 cc bike, but it is less muscular and a bit in form than a Sportster’s. It more like a belly a bicep, if you want to push the but it’s a nice belly.

From some angles, in viewed from a balcony that front lawn, little Suzuki looks right; everything (handlebar, casing, tank, seat, looks designed in place, than cobbled together. It is, in a an old-fashioned motorcycle, something could have been in the 1960s, and its appearance fully to that ideal.

So the TU250 a good lawn dart; how it travel on the road? Well, not Comparing this motorcycle to a 250 the era of Trudeaumania and a six-team NHL isn’t far off: it’s a two-valve with a single disc brake, a drum rear and weak suspension.

True, the bore’s number is about 15 bigger than the piston it has electronic ignition and it takes its by fuel injection, but you don’t an old-school motorcycle to use only technology; even Royal that bastion of Royalist motorcycle design, has updated its with electronic fuel

The TU250 starts readily and away in first gear hesitation. One nice aspect of a like this Suzuki is clumsy operation of clutch and are allowed; simply open the a bunch and let the clutch lever out as as you want, and you’ll get going.

you’re underway, opening the brings the revs up quickly in gears, but it’s necessary to row the five-speed transmission all the way to fifth in order to keep up with on Toronto’s expressways. Still, in the little Suzuki will not be behind on highways, though it certainly feel more in the right-hand lane. Instrumentation of a speedometer with odometer and meter, so we can’t tell you at speed the engine was operating pursuing highway traffic; we can that it was reasonably smooth at its high rpm levels, however.

The TU250 feels light you’re pushing it around, and light riding at parking lot too. A low seat height extend a measure of confidence to new and to riders closer to five in height than to six. But its and footpegs are spaced far enough that most riders feel comfortable it’s than a lot of other motorcycles, but not out of the range of a normal motorcycle’s

The seating position is that of a so it would be a comfortable perch for an ride. With no windscreen, the TU windblast to hammer the rider at top but it’s a bike that likely spend most of its at 90 km/h and slower, where from wind is minimal, so not a real concern.

At those speeds, the TU feels stable, and it its line in a curve without but its light weight contributes a feeling to it as well; it’s to steer quickly through bends. If there’s a weak (aside from the engine’s output of around 20 hp) it’s the braking behaviour. While the disc and rear drum reasonably well, the front lever pulses noticeably it’s squeezed hard caused by a warped rotor.

Overall, the Suzuki TU250 and it’s a good motorcycle. But 30 ago, it would have a good motorcycle, too. In with some changes, it was a motorcycle 30 years ago, in parts of the world.

Suzuki TU 250

The 250’s is a single-cylinder 250 that was manufactured for transportation duties in Asia in the early 1980s, and in that it served very well. But components have been for this new bike, they not been significantly improved. The TU250X is an old-style motorcycle reliable and very cheap on but it is not a 21st Century Suzuki a 1970s makeover.

In fact, just the opposite. What is not about this motorcycle is its at $5,299, it’s more than Honda’s 2011 with ABS. For several dollars less, the Honda modern styling, some componentry, and a little more and speed to your front

And though it’s a dubious the Honda is a bike that get stolen if you left it overnight on a street. Those are not reasons to the Suzuki if you know what you but it’s certainly reason to be careful about what wishing for.
