Quoted from Motorcycle.com here :
Suzuki GW250 claimed has 26 horse power (hp) @ 8500 rpm, and this bike powered by 250cc of engine capacity, parallel twin engine, liquid-cooled. The best things from Suzuki GW250 is "it's not a full fairing bike, it's street-bike !!". Today, Kawasaki ninja 250 and Honda CBR250R was already to fight, but Suzuki will join with the 250cc motorcycles club. So you have more option in this 250cc class. Good job Suzuki, and let's waiting the Yamaha motor-bike. Greats.
