The 2005 Suzuki GZ 250 is part of the Japanese manufacturer's Boulevard family of cruisers. In fact, it is the entry-level model in the tremendously popular line. But even though it's the line's smallest bike, it is built according to Suzuki's impeccable design and engineering standards, making the GZ 250 anything but entry-level in quality and performance.
Under the Suzuki GZ's seat one finds a proven four-stroke, single-cylinder, SOHC, two-valve 249cc engine with a twin dome combustion chamber (TDCC). The engine is built and tuned to deliver a wonderfully wide power band and very good acceleration, while keeping fuel economy to a maximum. Equipped with a 32mm Mikuni carburetor, the GZ enjoys instant and accurate throttle response, while the bike's five-speed transmission is fine-tuned for optimum performance across virtually all riding conditions.
The 2005 Suzuki GZ offers low-maintenance benefits for new motorcycle enthusiasts so they can enjoy more riding, and less working on their bikes. The GZ has a long-lasting, maintenance-free battery and a digital transistorized ignition system with an electric starter, for easy and reliable starts in any kind of weather.
Suzuki outfits their smallest Boulevard with all of the accents and chassis features one would expect on one of its larger cruisers, including a large, cruiser-style fuel tank (3.7 gallons), plenty of chrome accents, a top-notch fit and finish, fat front and rear fenders, and plush, super-low two-passenger seating (27.8 inches). The suspension is also premium-grade for an entry-level bike, with an oil-dampened front telescopic fork, and pre-load adjustable twin-shock rear suspension.
The 2005 Suzuki GZ has excellent stopping power, a must for any entry-level bike. The braking system comes courtesy of a hydraulic front disc, and rear drum brake. The manufacturer also offers a nice selection of available add-ons and after-market options for the 2005 Suzuki GZ, so owners can customize their bikes to their style and functional needs. From custom saddlebags and a specially designed windshield, to premium master cylinder caps, and more, your choices are almost endless when it comes to detailing the 2005 Suzuki GZ 250 to your lifestyle.
