Looks a handy enough commuter but styling-wise the suzuki is decades behind the CBR 250 & Ninja 300

styling

The styling is behind the CBR and Ninja, but then again, it is a naked bike. Slight resemblances to proper men's naked bikes, like the twin exhausts, is all fine by me. They need to bring out the Yamaha XJR 400 and Kawasaki ZRX 400's again :smile Although, I wouldn't say no to a baby Honda CB1000R either...

Three and half grand, 24bhp

Good to see manufacturers interest in smaller bikes.

It's what attracts new buyers into motorcycling. Looks like it could be a handy commuter also.

All of its potential buyers must both be excited

Pass your A2 tests on a 35kW NC700 then get an 18kW 250 with worse fuel economy?  I doubt that Suzuki will be beating buyers off with rusty chains.

There have been low powered Chinese 250s available in the UK for years, such as the Zongshen 250 GS, which could be had for £1500.  Seen any of them around?

Pricey

Seems pricey, considering I can get a new, made in Japan Suzuki TU250X for $4,000 (~£2,500).

EU import duties + UK import duties + UK 20% VAT (sales tax)

+ having to cover the dealer's obscene business rates, skyrocketing utility prices, and the inflates UK wages of people who have to pay those same swingeing taxes on everything that they buy = rip off Britain.

Buy a CBR600F in UK, pay £7,300.

Buy it in France, pay €7,790 = £6229.

How's that common market working out for us?

If only...

...it was a 500, had better styling without those stupid side pods and bulbous front mudguard and if it had a proper round headlamp, stainless exhaust, fork gaiters and analogue clocks and shaft drive and a five gallon tank then just maybe.

It looks nice

But it is way over priced, 250 cc is not a bad size bike for someone that has been riding for many years and wants a second bike just to commute, but not at over 3 grand.

 

A small bike like this should be doing in the range of around 90 to the gallon these days what's this manageing to do?

 

Half the price and I might be tempted, especially as it's a chinese bike.
