The GZ250 is carbureted, so allow an extra 5 minutes for the bike to warm up on cold mornings. The choke is your friend, and you'll need to get used to using it. Once on the road, your rear end will appreciate the plush, two-piece seat. The seat is buttoned-down, which adds a touch of class. The rest of the GZ's styling is nice enough, but a little too plain for my taste. After riding the Kymco Quannon 150 with its tachometer and digital speedometer, I was disappointed by the Suzuki's solitary speedo. The GZ is easy to maneuver and very stable, but the engine vibrates annoyingly at high rpm. Placement of the rearview mirrors is good, but they're difficult to see once that vibration kicks in. The seating position is perfect for a petite person like moi, but I imagine it would be cramped for taller riders.
