Suzuki Canada has announced that their TU250 will be coming for 2011. The TU has been around for a while but has only just made it to the Great White North.
Powered by a 249 cc, SOHC, air-cooled single the TU sees it wrapped up on a classically styled chassis, replete with spoke wheels, twin shocks, drum rear brake and vintage Suzuki round tail light.
Modern touches include fuel injection and … errr … well that’s about it. Oh, there’s a catalytic converter in the exhaust if that counts.
Seat height is a relatively low 770 mm and wet weight is a claimed 148 kg. The front brake uses a twin piston caliper and the retro theme is finished off with 18 inch wheels. Fuel capacity is 12 litres.
MSRP is $5,299, which seems a little steep for a basic model when you can get a Kawasaki Ninja 250 for $4,999.
