The GZ250 combines cruiser motorcycle styling cues with a 249cc single-cylinder engine. The little single has twin-valves and a single overhead cam that Suzuki claims provides “good acceleration” while still being fuel efficient. A single Mikuni 32mm carburetor feeds Suzuki’s Twin Dome Combustion Chamber with each twist of the throttle.
Suzuki realizes times are tough, so it lopped off a grand from its entry-level cruiser, the GZ250, which now lists $2999.
Cruiser credentials come from raised bars above a healthy 3.4-gallon tank, tire-hugging fenders and a two-piece seat. Chrome finish on its cylinder head covers, horn housing, tank emblems, and rear fender suspension struts are sweet touches for a bike that rings in at three-grand. It even has a list of Genuine Suzuki Accessories to tailor it even more to rider’s personal preferences.
“Whether you’re cruising or commuting, the GZ250 is a great motorcycle ready to take on the open road with smooth power delivery, superior handling and classic cruiser styling in an easy-to-operate size,” claims Suzuki’s official press release.
