Suzuki GXR250R
« on: June 07, 2019, 08:44:43 PM »
Looking at the various U-Tube Test rides of the GXR250R it appears that the top speed of this bike is 140 KPH (130KPH actual 80.77 mph ) that is very poor compared to the GW250F of 151 KPH which on the same degree of inaccuracy would be 139KPH - 87 MPH.  The only reason that appear to explain this is that they have shortened the gearing to make the bike accelerate faster.  I hate to think of what the V Strom 250 version is like. 
I like the fact that my GW250F is only marginally shorter than a Triumph Bonneville and has the same presence on the road but only costs a fraction of the cost to buy, insure and maintain.

I have now found information on the V Strom 250.  Again they have shortened the gearing which now hit Max Power at 8,000 revs not 8,500 as for the GW250.  Top speed is just 136KPH which is only just slower than the GSR250R which hit just 4 KPH more, probably because the rider cold get down on the Tank.  Seems like WE got the best deal being able to hit 151 KPH.  Not a great deal better but on a decent trip out, I am sure it would feel better.
