A Sports Machine
Featuring sporty good looks, responsive yet easy-to-control performance, nimble handling, and a comfortable riding position, the GSX250R is equally at home on the daily commute as it is when out on weekend rides for fun.
The 248cc parallel twin engine that powers the GSX250R has undergone thorough analysis and optimisation to maximise low-to mid-range torque and provide a powerful ride that features ease of control.
The relatively low mounting point of the clip-on left and right handlebars is sporty, but at the same time designed to provide a comfortable riding position that is capable around town or on longer rides.
Front and rear KYB suspension with custom settings contributes to weight reduction and retains reassuring handling characteristics, while at the same time adding a sporty feel.
Designed to Perform
The sporty flair of newly designed 10-spoke wheels pairs with tyres that provide strong grip on the road. Stopping power is provided by petal-type front and rear disc brakes. An Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)¹ made by Bosch is also equipped to deliver greater confidence and control.
Enhancing the sporty, aggressive look and futuristic flair of the GSX250R are newly designed surface-emitting LEDs employed by the position lamps up front and the taillight in the rear. Their smooth edge-to-edge illumination and the chevron-like shape that flanks the headlight create a truly distinctive and highly appealing lighting.
