2018 Suzuki GSX250R Review | First Ride
VIDEO Is the baby Gixxer the must have entry-level sports bike?
The entry-level sports bike class is becoming more and more popular, and the Suzuki GSX250R is a perfect fit for this segment. Suzuki built a comfortable machine that feels a bit more of a sport touring machine than a sports-bike. The torque is evenly spread throughout the whole revolution range, and the riding position will remind you of the famous Katana, only this one feels better.

We rode the GSX250R for around a week in the city, and on the twiesties to get a proper feedback. It made a good impression, especially as a touring bike, and that’s because the base ground for this bike was the Suzuki GW250 Inazuma. Unfortunately, the top speed is not that high, but enough to handle highways (80mph). The vibrations level is very low even at higher revs, and that adds up to the comfort level.
The GSX250R inherits the looks of its bigger brother, the GSX-R1000R that makes it probably the best looking in this class. Unfortunately, the small 250 engine keeps it behind the competition, but Suzuki put the money on the sport-touring abilities of this bike.
