2010 Suzuki TU250X Overview

In a time when new riders often are forced to choose between a 600-pound cruiser or a 150 mph 600cc sportbike, many experienced riders have begun complaining about the lack of a small “standard” motorcycle. Suzuki took those complaints to heart and loaned the new 2010 Suzuki TU250X to Ultimate so he could let us know his thoughts.

The Blockhead Boys peppered our test rider with questions about the little 4-stroke single, Bill wanting to know if it will go fast enough for the highway (no problem!) and what it is like in city traffic (awesome!) Todd points out that times have really changed – 40 years ago, this entry-level motorcycle would have been had the third-largest displacement in all of Suzuki’s American line!

By the time the test is finished, Bill acknowledges that at an MSRP of $3799, the 2010 Suzuki TU250X is a perfect beginner bike and Todd B is left plotting how to get the bike to NY because he thinks he can commute an entire month on one tank of fuel! And our tester? He was last seen riding off into the sunset of Southern California with a smug and satisfied 82 mpg grin on his face.
