The Suzuki TU250X is one of the oldest motorcycles still available in it’s largely original form when released decades ago. The TU is not the fastest or best looking motorcycles out there but it is a classic design that rediates retro-cool. Even when first released it was not state of the art technology so don’t expect exotic materials in 2012.

This motorcycle will appeal to the commuter and motorcycle fan rather than the younger learner rider who will be after something more sporty in looks and performance.

 The TU250X’s build quality is good and likewise it’s features. Since the model has been around for over a decade you can expect reliability and cheap running costs. I have not ridden one to date although I did know someone who had an even older Suzuki GN250 – it’s predecessor. Due to the low tech parts I would expect the cosmetic maintenance to be higher since there is more than enough chrome to keep clean, that said a little rust on it would only add character.

Ultimately as I said in the beginning, the TU250X is cool – worth a look if you want something old yet new again.
