whether riding in town or heading out on a long touring run.

The GSX250R is ready to perform as the all-round urban athlete. Its sporty good looks and nimble,responsive performance makes for exhilarating fun. At the same time, its sporty nature is complemented by a smooth and comfortable nature that is equally at home on the daily commute or when touring.

Sleek, flowing lines invite you to climb aboard and ride into the future. Sporty styling true to Suzuki's sportbike heritage brings instant excitement.

Look and feel your best wherever you decide to spread your wings.

The GSX250R is ready to take you

beyond mere satisfaction.

Brilliant performance

A sport bike that is equally adept at daily riding and touring

The Urban Athlete

Distinctive position lights and tail light design

Enhancing the sporty, aggressive look and futuristic flair of the GSX250R are surface-emitting LEDs employed by the position lights up front and the tail light in the rear. Their smooth edge-to-edge illumination and the chevron-like shape that flanks the headlight create a truly distinctive and highly appealing lighting scheme. Adopting clear lenses for the front and rear turn signals adds to the stylish appearance.

Clip-on handlebars

The relatively low mounting point of the separate left and right handlebars is sporty, but at the same time designed to provide a comfortable riding position around town or when touring.

Independent rider and

passenger seats

The GSX250R adopts the sporty styling of independent seats for the rider and passenger. Even so, each seat provides plenty of cushioning to make long rides comfortable. The slim design of the fuel tank also helps the rider easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.

suspension with custom


Contributes to weight reduction and retains reassuring handling characteristics, while at the same time adding a sportier feel.

Wheels, tires and brakes designed to perform

The sporty flair of 10-spoke wheels pairs with IRC tires that provide a solid grip on the road. Stopping power is provided by Petal-type front and rear disc brakes. An Antilock Brake System (ABS)*3 made by BOSCH is also available*4 to deliver yet greater confidence and control.

*3 ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering.

Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

*4 Only equipped on ABS model.

Full LCD instrumentation

The GSX250R features a reverse-lit LCD instrument panel. Readouts include the speedometer, tachometer, gear position and RPM indicator, odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption and oil change timing indicators, and a clock.

The honing pattern used for the cylinder barrels maintains lubrication for the pistons in a manner that helps minimize any loss of performance due to friction.


Cylinder head

The cylinder head adopts roller type rocker arms that minimize friction loss.



The cam profile for the GSX250R delivers maximum acceleration performance at speeds between 20km/h to 90km/h, as this is the range that is used most often. As an additional benefit, the cam profile also suppresses noise generation to deliver a smoother, more pleasant ride.

Highly efficient,

lightweight exhaust system

The two-into-one exhaust system for the GSX250R features an optimized shape for the chamber in front of the catalyzer. This maximizes acceleration performance at mid-range speeds, while the efficiency of the system also reduces exhaust emissions. The muffler adopts a shape that contributes to better engine output and torque by reducing power loss. It delivers a pleasing sound while its design also contributes to better cornering.


Thin, low tension piston rings were adopted to reduce friction and the shape of the piston ring grooves was also optimized.

Spark plug

Adopting the use of projected tip spark plugs speeds up the rate of combustion. This improves response, especially when the throttle is not open far, and also improves fuel economy.


Oil pump

Optimization of the oil pump reduces friction loss and contributes to an increase in engine output and improvement in fuel economy.

Intake valve

The port sections on the intake valves are designed to optimize airflow into the combustion chamber. This helps achieve a high level of thermal efficiency for improved performance and reduced emissions.


The 248cm3 parallel-twin engine that powers the GSX250R underwent thorough analysis and optimization to maximize low- to mid-range torque and provide a powerful ride that features ease of control. The overall efficiency achieved also helps realize class-leading level of fuel economy*1 and clean performance that satisfies the stringent Euro 4 emissions. With a full tank of gasoline, the GSX250R has a riding range of approximately 480km*2.
