Suzuki’s cool-looking mini GSX-R has arrived in UK dealers with a price just over £4000.
The new GSX250R features the same basic engine as the new 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 250 but a whole dose of GSX-R styling, that mimics the all-new 2017 GSX-R1000.
The GSX250 is A2-friendly with a 248cc parallel twin motor putting out a claimed 25ps at 8000rpm and produces a claimed 23.4Nm of torque at 6500rpm. It weighs in at 181kg wet.
The liquid-cooled motor is designed to be punchy at low and mid-range revs and Suzuki claim it will deliver an astonishing 91.2mpg. If that’s right, then the bike should give a tank range of 300 miles from its 15-litre fuel tank, according to our calculations.
The new GSX250R is designed to be a sports bike you can ride everyday for commuting, or take on longer trips or the twisty backroad on the way back from work.
There are clip-on handlebars to give a sporty riding position and a full LED dash which gives a gear position indicator, fuel gauge and clock.
The new GSX250R costs £4299 and is on sale now. It joins a host of exciting new smaller Suzuki’s in the Japanese firm’s range, including the new GSX-S125 at £2699 and the GSX-R125 at £3999.
We’re excited to say that we’ll be getting a review of the new Suzuki GSX250R very soon and will be putting those mpg claims to the test.
