2017 GW250 Overview
Big bike looks and quality with a modern stylish design thanks to distinctive body work
Smooth-running, parallel twin sips fuel but brings more performance that its size would imply
Ergonomically sound riding position lets riders tackle any mission; from urban commuting to long distance rides – it’s all within the GW250’s wheelhouse
In-line, twin cylinder, 248cc liquid-cooled engine has rider-friendly power characteristics to suit a variety of riding conditions.
A coupling-type balancer shaft fitted to the engine’s crankshaft reduces vibration and enhances rider comfort.
Electronic Fuel Injection system (EFI) controls the fuel delivery and the ignition timing based upon the riding conditions to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions.
The EFI also stabilizes the engine idle and helps provide nearly linear throttle response for clean, exciting performance.
Dual head-pipes effectively route the exhaust through a pair of long and low chromed mufflers that are balanced to the side of the rear wheel.
A six-speed transmission, with gear ratios well mated to the engine output, further improves low- to mid-range power delivery.
The semi double-cradle chassis is designed to provide abundant support for a variety of riding styles and is the foundation for the visually strong bodywork.
The well-tuned telescopic front fork soaks up bumps for smooth tracking up front – whether riding rough 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 handlebar’s design and bend were developed to provide a comfortable riding position.
The 5-way adjustable brake lever allows the rider to position the lever for comfort and confidence.
Hydraulic disc brakes front and rear provide consistent and controlled braking whether commuting on city streets or roaming the open road.
Strong three-spoke 17-inch aluminum wheels hold road-grabbing tires that can provide sporting performance through a variety of road conditions.
The multi-function instrumentation displays a variety of information. In the center, there is large analog tachometer with convenient digital gear position indicator. It’s flanked by a digital LCD speedometer, odometer, twin trip meter, clock and fuel gauge readouts, a service indicator, plus LED alert indicators on the left.
The bright halogen headlight is housed in a prominent nacelle that heads off the bike’s angles styling.
Unique front turn signals built into the fuel tank and radiator side covers create a striking impression.
The rear turn signals feature clear lenses like the front signals, and are well placed to not interfere with a passenger or luggage.
The distinctively styled fuel tank holds 3.5 US gallons (13.3 L) of gasoline for excellent riding range.
The comfortable contoured seat has a low seat height of 30.7 inch (780 mm) and also has passenger grab bars for comfortable two-up rides.
The rear tail cowl finishes off the motorcycles lines in style as it links into the grab rails and taillight assembly.
The taillight assembly uses double pane construction with a clear lens covering the red tail/brake lights.
Three dimensional “S” badges on the fuel tank and upper fork bracket celebrate the Suzuki brand and its heritage of technological and styling excellence.
A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories for GW250 owners are available including a large selection of Suzuki logo apparel.
