    Default Suzuki GW 250S unveiled at Shanghai: xBhp News

    Based on the Suzuki Inzuama GW 250, the company has showcased the GW250S at the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition in China.

    This motorcycle is being produced by Suzuki's China joint venture Changzhou Haojue Suzuki Motorcycle Co., Ltd. It is essentially the same bike with a semi-fairing. Besides being semi-faired, the bike also gets a higher handle bar to make it better for touring. The original bike was a naked, projected as a street bike. It will of course be a tad bit heavier.

    The bike features a liquid-cooled twin that is fuel-injected and counter-balanced and hooked to a six-speed transmission. The engine features a slightly undersquare configuration, allowing for additional torque.

    The bike will first be launched and sold in China, before it hits the overseas markets.

    Will such a bike be better than the naked for India in looks and practicality?

    this looks like a bigger ZMA/ZMR, may be good for touring, relaxed, comy seats etc..

    even meter is shaped somewhat like a ZMR ...

    Looks better than the naked GW250, but even with the fairing, it's close to ugly.
    Still, this bike has the potential to be a great sports tourer, given the tall windscreen and the fairings.

    Is it coming to India, as a variant for it's yet-to-be-launched 'naked' brother?

    my opinion is that, with such a design it's hard for it to survive in the Indian market while the rest of it's competitors are much better in looks and also there are other things which are not said in this thread, about it's power, peak torque, 0-100, top end, etc,. or at least a review about it. . . So, it's hard to properly determine about this bike. . . Overall looks wise, it's good for touring but I do not think not much will like it's design. . . Suzuki must concentrate on the designs for this bike which is one of the main thing people will look for a bike. . . That's it, in short please improve the design before releasing it into Indian markets for the bike to survive here with all other competitors. . .

    Rakesh, the Inauzma has been running around in international markets for quite some time and there are lots of reviews. Sharing some specs here.

    The GW250S will use the same fuel injected 248cc Twin engine as the naked and police models. Haojue claims an output of 24 hp at 8500 rpm and 16 ft-lb. at 6500 rpm. The GW250 also features a six-speed transmission, Suzuki B-King-inspired styling, twin exhausts, telescopic fork, seven-way adjustable spring preload rear suspension and a 3.5 gallon fuel tank.
    The Suzuki Inazuma GW250S Travel Edition of Suzuki's popular 250cc commuter-tourer motorcycle is heavier at 213 kg in contrast to the Suzuki Inazuma GW250 Standard Edition which weighs in at 183 kg.
    Comfortable spacious,
    low seat height
    and compact chassis design provide easy handling


    Infact the GW's ultra-low seat (770mm, lower than the FZ's) can become it's own strong point.

    Biking is not about how many Km/h you put on your Speedo. It's about how many miles you put on your Odo. Ride Safe, Ride Long!

    I wish that they atleast change the headlamp and the alloys on the naked one, IMO the rest is still manageable.
