Although its small size and humble displacement are best suited to cross-town jaunts or gentle back-road meanders, the Suzuki fares pretty well on the freeway. With the throttle rolled to the stop it tops out at about 85 mph, with the engine turning at what sounds like 8000 rpm. At freeway speed vibration is minimal, and the large mirrors provide a clear view of the rushing commuters bearing down on you. Despite the narrow 90/90 Cheng Shin front tire, the bike is unruffled by rain grooves and pavement irregularities, thanks no doubt to its generous trail. Braking equipment is more than ample to quickly slow the little TU from maximum speed, and the front brake lever has a taut, responsive feel. With 3.2 gallons of the cheap stuff on board, you can easily ride 150 miles between fill-ups. With a gentle wrist we were able to get about 68 mpg. Caning it on the freeway dropped that figure to 50 mpg.
