Suzuki Inazuma 250 – first UK review

“Is that a 500?” no it’s not actually, it’s a but the Fazer 1000 rider on his bicycle today and has stopped to I’m okay, certainly seems to be with the look of the bike.

those twin pipes at the makes it look like a He’s right you know. The new Suzuki Inazuma 250 does like a 500, and when starting off in motorcycling and in the market for a looks are everything.

500s and all bikes from back in the day a 500 was a big bike and a 250 was what you rode a licence. Unfortunately it’s a bit more complicated than these days but with the new laws coming into what we’re seeing is a of new ‘learner-friendly’ bikes like new Suzuki Inazuma 250 to fall with the 33bhp ruling. the Suzuki only makes but in a nice, friendly kind of

And as me and my new friend sit and and look at the lines of the against the industrial backdrop of Cement’s cooling tower, I that calling it a 500 is probably the compliment you could throw as very friendly new 250 twin.

it’s the twin pipes, it’s the (dare I say it) nod back to the Suzuki GSX1300 B-King in the but this looks like a big in every way, until you sit on it at with a low 30.7in (780mm) height even the stumpiest of should be able to cope, and at a 183kg it’s hardly

Some of you may remember this being shown at the NEC a whole ago, but this time, as we the Suzuki stand and wheel out a before the show opens, alive, it’s run-in and on sale now for just £3400.

Pulling away in front of the Get On Motorcycle training staff me realise that its been a since I rode a 250, and I’m out of gear before leaving the Get On

Skin, rice pudding, all to mind, but that wouldn’t be readjust your brain, it how it will be ridden and this bike is a delight.

The gearbox is Suzuki light requiring a to change up if you like, or clutchless shifts even with 300 miles on the clock.

I navigate the grease and salty slime pretend to be roads around the and head out towards Coventry. the Road Winner tyres are from, they work in the of conditions this bike is to find itself riding in day in, day

There’s no ABS, one way Suzuki kept the price down, and you can get a centre stand as an option, way of keeping the price low, but the of it feels like quality

The brakes are sharp enough to you up, if say the red traffic light comes on a unexpectedly, and the damping of the suspension plush for the price. It’s no but the non-adjustable forks cope with a 15.5 stone and at the rear, the single shock fine for the job.

It’s easy to ride, just as a designed for new riders should be, loads of steering lock, mirrors, its weight carried so it’s … easy to at slow speeds, and an upright position that doesn’t put any on your wrists. But there is side to this bike. It to play too.

Wind it up and the Suzuki gets quickly and smoothly. There’s a shaft to cut out vibrations and the bike pull 85mph if you get your down and are prepared to let it rev near the redline. It shows 8500rpm at and that’s where it spends of the time once I’m away the endless cameras in the Coventry and vicinity.

My route takes me to Rugby, the home of my biking where a 17-year-old with shaggy hair and armed a well-worn Suzuki GSX250 to cause trouble.

The roads get a bit windy and you can actually throw the around with reasonable Lean it over too far and you’ll a peg, but it’s all friendly and touches down that

If you want to make progress keep it above 7000rpm and be rewarded with a sweet that’s happy to have

It will pootle too, top gear from 40mph is no and ridden sensibly it will hit In fact during the whole day I had it on the bike’s fuel gauge moved, it really is that

At the end of a long day’s riding on the I actually have a soft for it. The Suzuki is way cheaper than its the £3950 Honda CBR250R, and the Kawasaki Ninja 300.

the Suzuki isn’t as well-specced (or as those bikes and there’s big differences in weight — the weighs just 162kg to the Suzuki’s 183kg, and the Kawasaki 172kg, so the Suzuki is no lightweight but it it well.

But bear in mind the Kawasaki has a 17-litre tank, the a 13.3 litre tank, and the 13-litres, so that will their kerb weight and at the end of the day, if the bike is well it doesn’t make too much at this level. It’s where the 9bhp, and bigger Kawasaki obviously wins.

But if you’re in the market for a good-looking, new 250 you won’t go far wrong with the especially at that price.
