2021 Suzuki GSX250R Features
Here’s a fully faired, quarter-liter sportbike with aggressive, flowing styling true to the Suzuki sportbike heritage. The Suzuki GSX250R ABS’s new, two-tone Pearl Glacier White and Pearl Nebular Black paint scheme brings big bike quality to the 250 class.
Fuel-injected, twin-cylinder engine delivers a responsive, broad power band with class-leading fuel economy of approximately 76 mpg.
The Suzuki GSX250R features a reverse-lit LCD instrument panel and a bright halogen headlight, plus distinctive position lamps and tail light using new tech, surface-emitting LEDs.
The comfortable, roomy ergonomics for rider and passenger, with a slim fuel tank, that helps the rider easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.
Ten-spoke, cast aluminum wheels, petal-type brake rotors, and quality KYB suspension components round out a chassis ready for any riding assignment.
The 248cc, parallel-twin engine that powers the Suzuki GSX250R ABS has been refined to maximize low- to mid-range torque to deliver a power characteristic that emphasizes ease of control.
Intelligent engine design and fuel-injection (EFI) tuning yields class-leading fuel economy while satisfying worldwide emission requirements.
The EFI also stabilizes the engine idle and helps provide nearly linear throttle response for clean, exciting performance.
The camshaft profile maximizes engine performance when riding at road speeds between 15 to 55 mph. This helps the Suzuki GSX250R deliver true, practical performance.
The valve train employs roller-type rocker arms for valve actuation to reduce mechanical losses.
The intake valves have a slim stem profile near the head to optimize airflow into the combustion chamber.
Low-tension piston rings are used to reduce friction, while a special honing pattern on the cylinder wall increases oil retention for additional friction reduction.
A coupling-type balancer shaft fitted to the engine’s crankshaft reduces vibration and enhances rider comfort.
A uniquely styled oil pump is used in the Suzuki GSX250R to reduce frictional loss while providing excellent engine lubrication.
Dual head pipes effectively route the exhaust through a high-flow catalyzer and into a stylish solo muffler covered with a buffed stainless steel shield.
Designed to get the most out of the engine’s mid-range performance and emit a pleasing sound, the Suzuki GSX250R’s exhaust is lightweight and stylish.
A six-speed transmission, with gear ratios well mated to the engine output, further improves low- to mid-range power delivery.
Suzuki’s sporting essence is present in the Suzuki GSX250R’s full bodywork that features an aggressive style with a futuristic flair. Select styling cues from historic and current Suzuki sportbikes appeal to both new and experienced riders.
The fairing routes cooling air to the radiator while moving hot air from the engine away from the rider.
The front of the motorcycle features unique dual LED position lights, angular fairing-mounted mirrors, and an effective sport windshield that incorporates slots to reduce wind buffeting.
The sharp tail has styling and a LED tail light reminiscent of a Suzuki GSX-R1000R.
The stylish and trim fuel tank holds 4.0 US gallons (15.0 liters) of gasoline for excellent riding range. With a full tank of gasoline, the Suzuki GSX250R has a riding range of approximately 280 miles.
The comfortable, contoured rider’s seat has a low seat height of 790mm (31.1 inches).
The separate rear seat is set higher so the passenger has a better view over the rider’s shoulder.
The semi double-cradle frame provides exceptional support for the Suzuki GSX250R’s effective running gear and exciting bodywork.
The well-tuned telescopic front fork soaks up bumps for smooth tracking up front – whether riding irregular city streets or faster open roads.
Rear suspension action is handled by a mono-shock system that stays hidden from view to augment the bike’s performance style. With seven-way adjustable spring preload, the rear suspension can be tuned for a passenger or cargo.
The clip-on handlebar’s design and reach were developed to provide a comfortable riding position.
The five-way adjustable front brake lever allows the rider to position the lever for comfort and confidence.
Hydraulic, antilock-equipped (ABS*) disc brakes front and rear grasp petal-style stainless steel rotors to provide consistent and controlled braking whether commuting on city streets or roaming the open road.
Ten-spoke, 17-inch, cast aluminum wheels hold road-grabbing IRC tires that provide sporting performance through a variety of road conditions.
*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
The Suzuki GSX250R is equipped with a back-lit multifunction LCD instrumentation panel that displays a variety of information.
At the top of the display is a bar-graph tachometer, and in the center is a large digital speedometer with a convenient digital clock and digital gear position indicator.
Also present in the panel is an odometer, twin trip meter, fuel gauge readouts, and a service reminder. A bright, programmable shift light is joined by LED alert indicators for the turn signals, engine functions, ABS, and high beam.
The bright halogen headlight is bracketed by a pair of distinctive position lamps using high-tech, surface-emitting LEDs.
The rear tail light also uses surface-emitting LEDs for excellent visibility to traffic.
The turn signals feature amber incandescent bulbs with clear lenses and are well placed to not interfere with a passenger or luggage.
Projected tip-style spark plugs speed up the rate of combustion, improving throttle response and fuel economy.
The Suzuki GSX250R uses an open-type regulator/rectifier to reduce charging-system draw that can rob power from the engine. A maintenance-free battery makes sure the motorcycle starts quickly each time.
