Happy New Year to you and yours Happyfrog.
They didn't exactly sell a lot in the UK. I think the Asian markets got the majority.
Have never actually seen another apart from one guy who I met through this forum who no longer has his as he sold it and brought a bigger HD as he used to ride with me and my son on it and simply couldn't keep up!
I know a few people who own bigger bikes 750cc upwards and they are 'old school' who class a 250 as an intermediate bike - for those who have passed their test but aren't confident enough to handle the weight / speed of a bigger bike!
Problem being that not many people want a 250 due to it's relatively low speed capabilities (by today's standards) and as with all Japanese bikes they are very expensive. After passing their tests the youngsters today want a lot more power and with 600 and 750cc bikes being relatively cheap compared to a 250 there is no contest.
You'll probably find that mostly two types of people brought the Inazuma in the UK - those who want cheap commuting and those who are a little older who just want a motorbike to remind them of the good old days and are happy with a 250 which about 30 years ago was quite a nippy little beast.
That said I think they are a good little bike and I doubt Suzuki's replacements for it - the GSX and Strom will fair any better.
In a few years anyway, thankfully NOT in my lifetime, everyone will be buzzing around on a restricted battery powered piece of sh#t with sat nav, radio's and all manner of electric gizzmos to attract buyers and 'bikers' will be a thing of legends!!
Long live the legends, and you Kantara when you read this, the leg - end!
You only live once - so buy a Harley!
