Although it wasn`t formally in the 2014 lineup, the single cylinder TU made the cut in 2013, so not much has changed in that short time. With a classic but not overly retro style, the Suzuki TU250X combines basic two-wheel design with a fuel-injected single-cylinder engine and a reasonable price point, which makes it a prime candidate for style-starved hipsters and weekday commuters alike.
The single-cylinder, 250cc air-cooled engine exposes its cooling fins for old-school style, while modern performance is enhanced by the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve fuel-injection system and digital ignition. The engine is tuned to deliver strong low-end torque and quick throttle response, while it lets riders enjoy gas-sipping fuel economy. And the 3.2-gallon fuel tank means riders will enjoy long road sessions in between fuel stops. The bike`s exhaust system is complete with a catalytic convertor to help keep emissions low.
The TU250X is a good fit for newbies too, with its long and comfortable padded seat positioned low-just 30.3 inches. Veteran riders will also enjoy the modern ride, along with timeless features like the round headlight, sweptback and low-slung chrome exhaust, polished crank side case and more. The TU250X runs on chrome-plated spoke wheels, with the front wheel stopped by a hydraulic disc brake using a dual-piston caliper for consistent brake activation.
A classic steel-tube frame and naked styling helps keep the TU`s curb weight down to just 326 pounds. The 2015 Suzuki TU250X is available in a Metallic Silver-and-Glass Black style, at a suggested retail price of USD 4,399. It`ll be arriving in Suzuki dealers this month.
