Just the right size
By D. Wright(Owner), Oct. 24, 2008
I'm 5'8" exactly and this bike is a perfect size for me. Perfect seat highth, too. Fuel economy? I consistently get 68 mpg around town. A quarter of that time I have a passenger.

I keep the speed at 55 mph or less, although I have wound it up a bit higher. For town, or even going a short dista... Read Full Review

I only wish it had a little more power... Read Full Review

Looks sharp and rides nice. Not fair to complain about about the power, it is a 250cc after all. Still, considering that it is a 250, is still moves nicely. All in all, dollar for dollar, it's a great bike Read Full Review

Wated Money
By Delia(Owner), Oct. 8, 2013
Bike died of an early death after 2 year and less than 4000 miles. Like many (and I mean many) GZ250 the engine died completely costing close to the street value of the bike. Check out the gz205 forums and you will see many people either parting out their bike because the engine died or people loo... Read Full Review
