The 2023 Suzuki GSX-250R Is A Slick Entry-Level Sportbike

The 2023 Suzuki lineup truly does have a sport bike for everyone, from the behemoth Hayabusa all the way down to the GSX-250R – a fully faired entry-level sport bike that takes all of the styling and race-bred engineering from its larger siblings and packages it into a lightweight 248cc package.

The Suzuki GSX-250R is built around the philosophy of introducing Suzuki’s renowned fun and reliability factors to new riders. It does just that with its 248cc parallel twin, which produces 24.7 hp and 17 lb-ft of torque. Suzuki says that the quarter-litre engine has been designed to emphasize low to mid-range torque in order to create an easy-to-control riding experience. Designed in Japan, one of the many perks of the 250R is its stellar fuel economy, reaching a reported 250 miles from its 5-gallon gas tank.

The GSX-250R cuts out a lot of the features that its larger lineup mates get as standard in favor of a budget-friendly entry-level package. From a technology standpoint, the bike gets standard ABS, a back-lit multifunction LCD gauge cluster, and LED taillights & front position lights.. In terms of styling, the GSX-250R very clearly takes some cues from its GSX-R brethren, including the signature single headlight, which is a halogen unit.

The 2023 iteration of this bike is only available in a single colourway – a dual tone Metallic Diamond Red & Pearl Nebular Black

The 2023 Suzuki GSX-250R ABS starts at $4,999 USD

2023 Suzuki GSX-250R ABS Features


Here’s a fully faired, quarter liter sportbike with an aggressive, flowing styling true to Suzuki’s sportbike heritage. The GSX250R ABS’s new, two-tone Metallic Diamond Red and Pearl Nebular Black paint scheme brings big bike quality to the 250 class.

Fuel-injected, twin-cylinder engine delivers a responsive, broad power band with class-leading fuel economy of approximately 73.6 mpg**.

The GSX250R ABS features a reverse-lit LCD instrument panel and a bright halogen headlight, plus distinctive position lamps and tail light using new tech, surface-emitting LEDs.

The comfortable, roomy ergonomics for rider and passenger, with a slim fuel tank, that helps the rider easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.

Ten-spoke, cast aluminum wheels, petal-type brake rotors, and quality KYB suspension components round out a chassis ready for any riding assignment.

**Suzuki’s fuel economy estimates are based on EPA exhaust emission measurement tests conducted by Suzuki and are intended for comparison purposes only. Your actual mileage may vary depending on how you ride and maintain your vehicle, road and driving conditions, tire pressure, engine break-in, accessories, cargo, rider and passenger weight, and other factors.


The 248cc, parallel-twin engine that powers the GSX250R ABS has been refined to maximize low- to mid-range torque to deliver a power characteristic that emphasizes ease of control.

A proven engine design and fuel-injection (EFI) tuning yields exceptional fuel economy of approximately 73.6 mpg** while satisfying worldwide emission requirements.

Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) stabilizes the engine idle and helps provide nearly linear throttle response for clean, exciting performance.

The camshaft profile maximizes engine performance when riding at road speeds between 15 to 55 mph. This helps the GSX250R ABS deliver true, practical performance.

The valve train employs roller-type rocker arms for valve actuation to reduce mechanical losses.

Screw and nut valve lash adjusters helps keep maintenance simple and inexpensive.

The intake valves have a slim stem profile near the head to optimize airflow into the combustion chamber.

Low-tension piston rings are used to reduce friction, while a special honing pattern on the cylinder wall increases oil retention for additional friction reduction.

A coupling-type balancer shaft fitted to the engine’s crankshaft reduces vibration and enhances rider comfort.

A unique oil pump design is used in the GSX250R ABS to reduce frictional loss while providing excellent engine lubrication.

Dual head pipes effectively route the exhaust through a high-flow catalyzer and into a stylish solo muffler covered with a buffed stainless steel shield.

Designed to get the most out of the engine’s mid-range performance and emit a pleasing sound, the GSX250R ABS’s exhaust is lightweight and stylish.

A six-speed transmission, with gear ratios well matched to the engine’s output, further improves low- to mid-range power delivery.


Suzuki’s sporting essence is present in the GSX250R ABS’s full bodywork that features an aggressive style with a futuristic flair. Select styling cues from historic and current Suzuki sportbikes appeal to both new and experienced riders.

The fairing routes cool air to the radiator while moving hot air from the engine away from the rider.

The nose of the motorcycle features unique dual LED position lights, angular fairing-mounted mirrors, and an effective sport windshield that incorporates slots that help reduce wind buffeting.

The mass-forward styling of the tail section and its LED taillight are evocative of the GSX-R1000R.

The stylish and trim fuel tank holds 4.0 US gallons (15.0 liters) of gasoline for an excellent riding range. With a full tank of gasoline, the GSX250R ABS has a riding range of over 250 miles**.

The comfortable, contoured rider’s seat has a low seat height of 790mm (31.1 inches).

The separate rear seat is set higher so the passenger has a better view over the rider’s shoulder.

The semi double-cradle frame provides a strong foundation for the GSX250R ABS’s quality suspension, ABS-equipped brakes*, and exciting bodywork.

The well-tuned telescopic front fork soaks up bumps for smooth tracking up front – whether riding irregular city streets or faster open roads.

Rear suspension action is handled by a mono-shock system that stays hidden from view to augment the bike’s performance style. With seven-way adjustable spring preload, the rear suspension can be easily tuned for a passenger or cargo+.

The clip-on handlebar’s design and reach were developed to provide a comfortable riding position.

The five-way adjustable front brake lever allows the rider to position the lever for comfort and confidence.

Hydraulic, ABS-equipped* disc brakes front and rear grasp petal-style stainless steel rotors to provide consistent and controlled braking whether commuting on city streets or roaming the open road.

Ten-spoke, 17-inch, cast aluminum wheels hold road-grabbing IRC tires that provide sporting performance through a variety of road conditions.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

**Suzuki’s fuel economy estimates are based on EPA exhaust emission measurement tests conducted by Suzuki and are intended for comparison purposes only. Your actual mileage may vary depending on how you ride and maintain your vehicle, road and driving conditions, tire pressure, engine break-in, accessories, cargo, rider and passenger weight, and other factors.

The GSX250R ABS is equipped with a back-lit multifunction LCD instrumentation panel that displays a wealth of information.

At the top of the display is a bar-graph tachometer, and in the center is a large digital speedometer with a convenient digital clock and digital gear position indicator.

Also present in the panel is an odometer, twin trip meter, fuel gauge readouts, and a service reminder. A bright, programmable shift light is joined by LED alert indicators for the turn signals, engine functions, ABS, and high beam.

The bright halogen headlight is bracketed by a pair of distinctive position lamps using high-tech, surface-emitting LEDs.

The rear tail light also uses surface-emitting LEDs for excellent visibility to traffic.

The turn signals feature amber incandescent bulbs with clear lenses and are well placed to not interfere with a passenger or accessories+.

Projected tip-style spark plugs enhance combustion, improving throttle response and fuel economy.

The GSX250R ABS uses an open-type regulator/rectifier to reduce charging-system draw that can rob power from the engine. A maintenance-free battery makes sure the motorcycle starts quickly each time.
