My daughters Suzuki TU250
« on: September 14, 2020, 08:23:07 AM »
My daughter rode her TU250 165 miles down through Vermont last week so Dad could pick it up, service it, and store for the winter. Last year I went up 1 tooth on the countershaft sprocket for better cruising. She took Rt.100 rather than the interstate. I asked if she had to stop for gas, and she said no. Anyway, I drained what ethanol gas was left in the tank. 1.4 gallons came out. It is a 3.17 gallon tank.  What???  1.77 gallons to go 165 miles!!  93 mpg.

   TU250 specs:
326 pounds curb weight
24 HP
Fuel injected
84 mph top speed

those are fantastic little bikes. a friend of mine has one as a commuter. (that i talked him into).  My only beef with them is the cheap look of the speedo needle. (I don't know why but it irks me to no end.)  i was kinda sad to hear they quit making them.

I am in love with those things. I love the black ones with the retro decal. My girlfriend just passed her exam on one of those. Man, would I love a bike that was not a gas guzzler.
Do not underestimate the power of a two-stroke.

Would probably look good with a mild cafe treatment.
