2002 Suzuki GZ250 from United States of America
It's alright, not great, not horrible
I have a problem with the blinkers.
Firstly as a bike for a pure 100% beginner, I'd say the bike is fine, great even. It's really light and easy to handle, and it'll be a lot of fun for probably two weeks, but after that you'll start to get a little annoyed with the lack of power, or I did anyway. There's been a few times the wind has kept me from reaching a 55mph speed limit, and I weigh 160.
The gearing isn't great; if you're going up a hill at all you have to max it out then shift, or it'll just stutter for a bit, and 5th gear... is for purely maintaining speed maybe, not gaining LOL.
I hate to just diss on the little machine, it's kind of grown on me and I've certainly turned a lot of heads, and it shines up nicely and it's a fun ride most of the time, but if you're in a pinch for time, this is NOT the ride you should take! Mine is pretty big looks wise for a 250, but I saw a newer model the other day and it's a lot smaller...
Overall, if you're wondering if you should get this GZ250 or no motorcycle at all, I'd get it. But don't let this be your only opinion of a bike if you don't like it, because honestly it probably won't be the best motorcycle for the price; it's alright though.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
