Suzuki’s GW250 is coming to Canada!
Of course, the Baby B-King has been sold around the rest of the world for a while, but hasn’t been available in North America.
We are still waiting for official confirmation on this news, but for now, here’s a look at what we’d get with Suzuki’s quarter-litre naked bike: the machine is powered by a four-stroke liquid-cooled parallel twin. According to international websites, it makes 26 hp at 8,500 rpm and 24 nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.
The bike has EFI, a six-speed transmission, and wet weight seems to be around 180 kg (173 kg dry).
We don’t have any other information (price, ETA, etc.), but we’re watching this one with some interest. The 250 cc segment has been heating up quite a bit in the last couple years, and Suzuki has mainly missed the surge in sales. Could the GW250 make them a bunch of money, and also create some more competition for Honda’s CBR250? Stay tuned …
We’ve got a YouTube video below with some action footage of the bike.
You can see some more statics of the bike in this video. Might want to mute your speakers, though.
