A few weeks ago Suzuki invited us to the launch of its GSX250R. During the event we were briefed of Suzuki’s plans of bringing new riders and returning riders back into the sport with this new motorcycle. Many critics, upon hearing news that Suzuki was coming to market with a 250, were asking why not a 300 like most of the other bikes in its class. Whatever Suzuki’s reasoning may have been for the decision, it shouldn’t take away from noting that the 2018 GSX250R is a great bike. It may not be the lightest or fastest but it does an adequate job of being a practical sportbike that looks good.
2018 Suzuki GSX250R Review
Having the chance to ride with a group of diverse journalists, everyone seemed to come away satisfied with the motorcycle. We weren’t chatting about mind-blowing horsepower while at the watercooler, but the mention of the Katana frame of mind from Suzuki does well to describe the GSX. A practical, great-looking, sporty motorcycle.
We spent some time after the shoot putting the bike through its paces to give a thorough review of how it performed in as many daily scenarios as a rider might have. The motorcycle is still in my garage and is my preferred choice to swing a leg over when bouncing around town for quick errands. It is as unintimidating as it comes while having uncompromising style. We will have a comparison put together with other motorcycles in the class soon. For now, take a look at our video review of the 2018 Suzuki GSX250R.
