TU250 Preview

When it comes to a down and basic, user-friendly and economical beginners motorcycle, the 2011 Suzuki TU250 is the standard. The TU 250 motorcike has basic features like spoked wheels and a round headlight to provide a retro look.

But the TU 250 doesn’t offer retro technology; it’s powered by a fuel-injected single-cylinder motor, and offers up-to-date suspension and chassis parts.

2011 Standard Motorcycle:

  • Suzuki fuel injection provides better fuel efficiency, strong throttle response and easy starting.

Chassis Features:

  • The TU250 is designed around a strong diamond-shaped steel tube frame. Its low 30.3-inch seat height and compact chassis make the TU250 the ideal choice for the beginning rider.
  • Front disc brake with dual-piston caliper and rear drum brakes come standard on the TU250.
  • The 3.2-gallon fuel tank and fuel-efficient engine work together to provide excellent riding range.
  • The TU250 is equipped with a full lighting system and easy-to-read instrumentation including trip meter.
  • Chrome plated front and rear wheels; headlight case; speedometer cover; tail lamp housing; front suspension outer tube; and polished crank side case produce a beautiful, high quality look.

Engine Features:

  • The TU250’s 249cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, SOHC engine is equipped with Suzuki’s industry-leading fuel injection system. This fuel-efficient engine produces strong, low-rpm torque, which makes the TU250 a perfect choice for the city motocyclist.
  • SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) cylinder allows for improved heat transfer, lightweight and tighter piston clearance.
  • The TU250’s digitally controlled CDI ignition system provides optimum ignition timing at all engine speeds.
  • The TU250’s muffler is outfitted with a catalytic converter and O2 feedback system for cleaner exhaust emissions.

Transmission Feature:

  • A five-speed transmission offers gear ratios that are suitable for a wide variety of riding conditions.
