The Marauder 250 : Take to the Wind in Laid-back Comfort
Authentic cruiser style. The Marauder 250 has a long, low chassis for precise easy handling. The deeply cushioned seat and forward-mounted footpegs provide a comfortable seating position. A compact, lightweight 249cc single-cylinder air-cooled four-stroke engine delivers strong low-to-mid range power for moving past traffic with ease. True to its style, the Marauder 250 is loaded with chrome components: two-into-one exhaust pipe, cylinder head cover, chain case, speedometer, headlamp, turn signals, rear shocks, and embossed Suzuki tank emblem.

MBG Says: For someone, insecure about motorcycles, who absolutely wants to start at the bottom of the ladder, the Marauder 250 is a valid choice. For a reasonable price, it offers limited performance, a very friendly general behaviour, a low seat height and even a nice cruiser look. However, you have to be aware that the low level of power will make riding boring before long, and it will then be time to consider something bigger.
