All the weight of the Honda 500s and all the power of a 250. A really thoughtless "me-too" effort by Suzuki.

Suzuki’s GW250 coming to Canada | CMG News

I think it looks pretty good, especially in that blue in the above article.

The specs just aren't there though. However, I believe it's supposed to be more of a full size chassis which is where some of the added weight comes from. Could be a good option for taller riders who want to get into riding. Could've used a bit more power to offset it. Didn't need much, just a bit.

Looks sharp and I like it. If I was looking for another 250 or so then I'd take a look at it. Hell I wish Honda had a naked 250 when I bought mine (VTR250 style). I'm sure we'll see more offerings now in the smaller cc capacity as the segment seems to be growing.

There's a motorcycle show on this weekend in Toronto and I cannot wait to check out this new 500 series...maybe even snap one up if they have some decent offers.

Its ok, CBR looks better.

Looks like it may have a gear indicator, which all bikes should have.

Has anyone had any experience with this bike? I really want a naked, seat upright style 250 and there just isn't any out there really. The styling and weight could be better on this one but other than those 2 things, reviews are really positive for it.

It is great to see other motorcycle companies offering 250cc bikes. Not all of us want big and high powered motorcycles!

It is a twin, and the website says it produces low and mid-range power. Sounds like it will be a good around town bike.
