The original Suzuki T250 was an improved version of the Suzuki T20. Many of the same parts were used on the Suzuki T250 which could easily be used on both the Suzuki T20 and T10 as previously used parts. This model of Suzuki was very competitive both in the market and on the road when it was first released in 1969. The Suzuki T250 eventually found its way into many motorcycle garages before Suzuki ceased production in 1972.
There are many reasons why this bike continued to sell like hot cakes even after the end of production. The Suzuki T250 featured a fast 33hp two-stroke engine, an automatic oil mechanism, a six-speed gearbox, a tachometer and a highly acclaimed twin-shoe brake. When it was first introduced in 1969, many biker enthusiasts knew the Suzuki T250 as being economical, sporty and light. Suzuki did everything to give the bikers what they wanted in an overall aspect.
The Suzuki T250 has been replenished and revised throughout its lifetime, including as many as seven models that have been consistently and exclusively launched in many economically stable countries. The first model Suzuki released was the 1967 Suzuki T250, also originally named the Super T21. Suzuki did not use the Suzuki T250 name until late 1969. A later release would greatly improve the bike and overall it gave the Suzuki T250 a street style rather than a racing style.
The 1969 Suzuki T250 Hustler was the second T250 released by Suzuki. This was released just two years after the Super T21, with many changes for the benefit of bikers. The Hustler offered a lot more power with a T20 engine and also delivered T20 front suspension. Many other aspects from the carburetor to the frame have also been changed. The Suzuki T250 Hustler had many changes, although overall speed stayed about the same.
Many aspects of the Suzuki T250 varied by model, while specifications remained relatively the same. A 1.5 liter fuel tank capacity helped the bike stand out from the competition while making strides in miles per liter (42mpg). The dry weight of earlier models did not change much, from 140 kg in 1969 to 145 kg in 1972. The original 5 speed motor was later changed to a 6 speed constant mesh recoil motor, which helped many owners win the track. Many riders were also happy that the bike could easily reach 152 km/h while being able to reach speeds of 160 km/h.
The Suzuki T250 models changed many aspects of the bike for the better and caused many innovations for later models. Many people enjoy the fact that they can buy parts for a T20 and easily fit them into their Suzuki T250 or Suzuki T10. The Suzuki T250 is a great choice for collectors and avid bikers. The next best feature was the Suzuki offered retail price of just £399.00 in the UK.
