Suzuki GW250: Suzuki’s Answer for 250cc Motorcycle Market

2011 Suzuki GW250

Honda with its CBR-250R, Kawasaki with its Ninja 250R and now it is time for Suzuki with its GW250. There are many more choices now in the market for 250cc motorcycles. Suzuki has come out with this Gw250 with much of the styling taken from the popular Suzuki B-King (1,340cc). Some also called the GW250 as the name of baby B-King.

It comes with 4-stroke engine, liquid-cooled parallel twin (inline) which gives out 26hp and 24Nm of torque.

It is great to see manufacturers fighting to get the piece of the pie from the 250cc market since this is where the beginners starts to learn riding superbikes, and if the bikes are good enough, the manufacturer might just get loyal customer who might buy the much bigger superbikes.

It is rumored that this model might comes to ASEAN market. By ASEAN, does it means it include Malaysia?

It comes in three colours for the Standard version (non-ABS) that is Candy Ruby Red Metallic, Asteroid Black Metallic and Sword Silver Metallic whereby the ABS version comes in two colours only that is Candy Ruby Red Metallic and Sword Silver Metallic. The Standard have lighter weight since the ABS system weight about 9 pounds (4.08kg). The ABS version weighs at 165kg and the Standard version is at 161kg.
