For 2013, Suzuki Motor Corporation released the GW250 in the USA, the only naked 250cc sportbike currently available in the US.

And soon, Suzuki may release another version stateside – the GW250S, which was unveiled at the 15th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition in Shanghai, China, this weekend.

The GW250S, which is being produced by Suzuki’s joint venture in China, Changzhou Haojue Suzuki Motorcycle Co., LTD, equips a half fairing to the standard GW250.

Besides the half-fairing that provides for more wind protection, the GW250S also receives a higher handlebar.

The bike features a liquid-cooled twin that is fuel-injected and counter-balanced and hooked to a six-speed transmission. The engine features a  slightly undersquare configuration, allowing for additional torque for urban settings and tight canyon riding.

The GW250S will likely be a few pounds heavier than the 403-pound curb weight of the GW250, and share the base model’s sub-31-inch seat height, creating a welcoming bike for entry-level riders.

Suzuki will launch the GW250S in China, and plans to distribute them in the overseas market.
