8. Suzuki GW250: $3999


Continuing into 2014 unchanged from last year (doesn’t even get bold new graphics!), the Suzuki GW250 is a cheap beginner bike alternative that doesn’t fall into the sportbike or cruiser category. Powered by a SOHC parallel-Twin, the 250’s styling mimics the audacious (and discontinued) Hayabusa-powered B-King’s, but it isn’t the least bit intimidating. Sold as the Inazuma in Europe for the past few years, and built in China, time will tell if it gains popularity with the American crowd.

    I’m in Mexico part-time with low-bandwidth and it’s a very slow and painful process to load each page of this article though I would very much like to see its content. If possible could you provide a 1 pager for the entire thing? That way I can read and recommend to my readers. Thanks, Carla

    Dodge Tomahawk is the best:

    Regarding the Qlink XF200 I would like to turn public to Motorcycle Forum readers my own experience for the past six years with this bike (a.k.a. in Brazil as Sundown STX Motard): . My usage of this bike is detailed in every aspect along 13 pages in my website. I have been travelling extensively with my bike all over Brazil. It is a pleasure to share my experience with fellow riders.

    There should have been more smaller bikes.

    Why no KTM Duke 125, Duke 200, or even the cult hit (Indonesia, India, Spain) Pulsar 200NS.

    Sad so many are Chinese bikes. Of these only the Hondas would I consider, the Grom being the right price. What a shame.
