A piece of Suzuki's History
Bike was left in garden shed for 13 years and required a new battery, a new exhaust system, and rebuilt carburettors.
The bike is a naked road tourer.
It is similar to the GS500F, but learner legal. Though I don't know why?
I bought the bike for $300AUS.
The bike is designated as a GS250FW-S, which was Suzuki's first attempt at a 4 cylinder 250cc bike.
It has a 6 speed gearbox, full floater rear suspension, and an instrument cluster like you wouldn't believe.
Top speed is 224km/h, with 36hp @ 11,500rpm, and 23nm @ 7,000rpm.
The power band is strongest between 9,000rpm and 11,000rpm.
The bike is 1 of only 190 shipped to Australia, with only half that still around.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
