Anyone familiar with Suzuki’s heritage and current crop of bikes will immediately see the resemblance to the GSX-R models. This motorcycle also borrows from the legendary Katana. The body is both sleek and athletic, making for a super attractive Suzuki. A black color scheme with silver highlights makes for a clean and simple presentation that really emphasizes the basic nature of this ride. The paint and everything else is in absolute pristine condition, too.

 One of the main reasons this bike works well for beginners is the 248cc parallel-twin engine. While it isn’t too much for someone learning to handle, it’s also fun enough for experienced riders, thanks to great low- and mid-range torque. Acceleration throughout the RPM range is nice and smooth, thanks in large part to the electronic fuel injection, which also boosts fuel economy. You also get a telescopic fork and preload-adjustable shock for great comfort and handling.

While the GSX250R certainly looks menacing in a way, it’s super comfortable to ride, thanks to the upright position it puts you in. With a 31.1-inch seat height, shorter riders can easily manage this motorcycle. The saddle is well-padded, and the controls are incredibly easy to use. An electronic screen shows al the vital information in a simple format, so you can glance quickly to see what you need.

To be clear, the Suzuki GSX250R isn’t a high-performance bike. It’s a practical motorcycle that will last a long time, yet will still offer some fun times. It’s the sensible choice and is a great way to learn to ride or get back into it after a long break.
