2015 Suzuki GW250F
MSRP $4,499

The Suzuki GW250F is a small and affordable 250cc motorcycle with a fairing that is quick and easy to zip around town. The ‘F’ designation denotes the addition of a forward fairing and windshield making it more commute-ready on the highway. Like the standard GW, the Suzuki GW250F is powered by a water-cooled and fuel-injected 248cc Parallel Twin. Equipped with full size 17-inch aluminum rims and hydraulic disc brakes front and rear, it puts power to the pavement through a six-speed transmission and chain final drive. Its engine sips gas from a 3.5-gallon fuel tank which should give a useable range upwards of 175 miles. Riders can keep up on various engine running parameters including the fuel level through its big needle face tachometer and integrated LCD that includes gear position and speed/trip info. The ‘F’ also gets a quality two-tone paint job appearing more premium than you’d expect considering its sub-$5000 price tag.
