Offering the look of a baby B-King, the GW250 is expected to stimulate Suzuki’s entry-level motorcycle sales.

Powered by a fuel-injected and liquid-cooled 248cc parallel twin engine developing 24.1hp @ 8,500 rpm and 16.2 ft. lb. @2,600 rpm, this diminutive two-wheeler features a six-speed transmission, KYB suspension components (preload adjustable in the rear), 290mm single front disc and 240mm rear disc brakes, IRC tires (110/80-17 front and 140/70-17 rear) multi-function LCD instrument cluster and dual exhaust muffler.

Price is still to be determined.

C90T Boss
The blacked out Boulevard C90T Boss (MSRP: $13,999) is an all-new model aimed at customers who want to tour with their cruiser.

The first Boulevard to feature factory-built hard side cases as standard equipment, the C90T Boss further aids distance riders with a full-size windscreen, wide rear-swept handlebars, flat seat and floorboards that all combine to maximize comfort.

Sharing a platform with the M90, the bike is powered by a refined 1462cc liquid-cooled V-twin developing 77.8hp @ 4,800 rpm and 96.6 ft. lbs. @ 2,600 rpm.

Burgman 650 ABS
This latest version of the big Burgman receives updated styling with a slimmer rear section, redesigned lighting and instrument cluster, 4 lb. weight reduction and a claimed 15% improvement in fuel economy via a refined transmission.

Powered by a 638cc twin-cylinder engine developing 61hp @ 7,000 rpm and 45.7 ft. lbs. @ 6,400 rpm, the Burgman 650 ABS now comes standard with an electronically adjustable windshield, power folding mirrors and adjustable rider backrest – items previously only available on the Executive model.

Price is still to be determined.

Commemorative Edition GSX-R1000
Suzuki launched the GSX-R series 27 years ago, in 1985, and earlier this year produced its one-millionth unit. To mark the milestone, the OEM introduced the GSX-R 1 Million Commemorative Edition ($13,999).

Based on a standard GSX-R1000, this particular model is outfitted with a serial production plate, red-anodized front fork caps, gold-colored front fork outer tube, red rear suspension spring, black front brake calipers with red Brembo lettering, pin stripes on the wheels, a single seat cowl and a special key fob with “R” logo.

The GSX-R 1 Million Commemorative Edition will be limited to a production run of 1,985 units. Incredibly, 1,000 of those units are headed for the U.S – the GSX-R’s largest market.

Hayabusa Limited Edition
The Hayabusa was heralded as the fastest production motorcycle in the world when introduced in 1999. For 2013, engineers worked to get the Hayabusa ($14,399) to stop more rapidly and safely with the addition of Brembo Monoblock calipers and an anti-lock braking system.

Looking for exclusivity? Suzuki also is ready to roll out a limited edition model ($14,599) in a striking yellow.
