  • Vibration at 40mph?
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 26, 2011

    Purchased my 2009 TU with 514 miles in Sept, 2011. Don't understand why another poster is experiencing vibration above 40mph. I can get to 65mph+ and still very smooth. Added the white trim gel seat that gives it a very cool and complete look, but is very, very hard as compared to the stock seat ...

  • Great bike!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 06, 2009

    Replaced a Kawasaki Vulcan 500 with the Suzuki TU250 and am glad I did. Great bike, crisp 'tossable' handling, great riding position, comfortable seat, very nice clutch, surprisingly smooth engine, good torque off the line, even power delivery across the revs, and fairly smooth ride.

    Top ...

    Construction looks and feels to be of good quality. And, to my eye, it looks the way a motorcycle should.

    Highly recommended if you're after some uncomplicated fun or a great commuter.

  • TU250 = ST250
    By  (I am a Writer) on Aug 03, 2009

    Just a quick note of for those who like this bike--it's been around in Japan for a few years now, where it's known as the ST250. As such, you can find lots more parts, accessories, add-ons and so forth via Japanese websites, if you're hip to that. Most previous model years have a carb, and some of ...

  • 3 months and 400miles on 250TU
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jul 24, 2009

    First- this is one of the best looking bikes out there. In person it looks alot better then any picture and you can really appreciate the quality and nice touches.

    Pros: Looks and build quality

    Price

    Fuel injection

    Comfortable seat

    ...

    Cons: Its not a fast 250cc(Ninja 250 will cream you every time)

    Single cylinder starts vibrating above 40mph.

    Conclusion:Beautiful bike at a very good price.

  • Excellent Bike!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jun 14, 2009

    I agree with JGunn's review - the TU250 is sweet! This is my first motorcycle and I couldn't be happier. The bike handles well, is easy to ride, and attracts attention on the street. Today, while making a left turn onto another road, a driver passed on the right and shouted out the window - "great ...

  • Sweet Ride
    By  (I am an Owner) on Jun 05, 2009

    I recently purchased the TU250X and I will have to say that this is one great machine. It's an old-school styled bike with new-school technology.

    The fuel injection is awesome. The engine starts right up cold (no need to ever use choke again) and purrs like a kitten. The fuel ...

    The TU250X has more than enough power for city riding and doubling your significant other. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

  • TU 250
    By  (I am an Owner) on May 13, 2009

    I am a big guy. 6 foot+ 250 pound+ 30 inch in-seam+/-, and today I had the opportunity to throw my leg over a TU250, GZ250, and Honda Rebel 250.

    Forgetabout the Rebel, Honda has something going on that pushes into the back of your legs and doesn't make for a comfortable all-around ...

    Disappointed and surprised at the same time was my experience with the Suzuki. I found the ergonomics on the TU250 awkward, I was all bunched up and I felt like I was leaning forward in a "Speed Racer for Scooter" position.

    As a commuter, or city-bike, the TU250 may look cool, but what I felt with the GZ250 was a design based on tried and true saddle-experience for the in-city, suburban, and new rider.

    {Food for thought - there may be a good reason why old designs, like standard bikes, are old - we evolve, so do our rides. Perhaps, the cruiser design/layout is the pinnacle of all-around practical bike design?)

    Thanks to the folks at Stamford Motor Sports in Stamford, CT., for their time and the opportunity to help me size-up the different 250cc bikes they had on their showroom floor.

    Would I buy from them - yes, they came across to me as being genuine - not another "Honda Bob".

  • Finally
    By  (I am an Enthusiast) on Feb 08, 2009

    I had the pleasure of getting to see this machine up close. I'm glad that the company is bringing back this style of bike again. I've been running my GS750E and GT185 since the 70's. I own three of the 750's and two of the 185's. It's hard to get parts. So, when I saw the TU250 coming out. ...
