1984 Suzuki GS250FW-S


Not fast, but nice


Loose steering stem.

General Comments:

The first Suzuki 250cc 4 cylinder bike; in fact the first DOHC 250cc 4 cylinder street legal bike in the world. At 36HP/11000rpm, it compares badly with later 4 cylinder 250cc bikes rated at something like 45HP/14000rpm, but it has a very nice 4 cylinder sound. It has only 2 carbs to feed the 4 cylinders, making maintenance slightly simpler.

The bike is comfortably designed with a very nice seat for long rides, single or tandem. It also has a remote control rear shock preload adjuster, and a full set of instruments on the meter panel.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
