Our resident road warrior has earned his stripes covering the rally circuit, from riding the Black Hills of Sturgis to cruising Main Street in Daytona Beach. Whether it's chopped, bobbed, or bored, metric to 'Merican, he rides 'em all.

Suzuki Motorcycles announced today it is reducing the price on its entry-level standard bike, the GZ250, to $2999, lowering its current MSRP by $1000. With this move, Suzuki provides a gateway into motorcycle riding during lean economic times.

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.
