  •  4black beast and road stunner 9 months ago by Rajiv

    I was researching and done test ride in following segment bikes ,especially in 200cc ,250 and 400 CC . in which TVS 200 RTR ,Bajaj Ns200,Honda cbr 250 Thunderbird ,Java ,KTM ,FZ S, MT 15. finally I have filtered TVS RTR, Bajaj NS 200, dominor. TVS having a starting problem in wet condition and NS 200 is having chain sprocket problem in very short time .dominar had been updated recently but it is a star and very comfortable bike with very good road presence but the mileage of the dominar is 18 in the City 22/24 max in highway ride. since I'm in 30 s .I need to ride with kids.so I always search for street bike I never tried on R15. because of the seat height but I love that sporty type.after searching so long time finally I have seen the ad of Suzuki from the house of Hayabusa. the Hayabusa was dream for me .finally I book a test drive . I've done 150 cc and 250 CC both . oh my God when I sit in the bike and when I accelerating be the sound was like a double barrel very convincing. I prefer 250 coz dual abs and more power with the matte black.. in 150 cc you have shine black and shine silver. bad braking in 150 cc riding experiences refined engine the . excellent breaking ,stylish look ,beast definitely, catch stranger eyes while you drive, mileages 24 in city e 28 to 30 in highway just now for service done they charge 900 rupees 1.2 litre oil change and chain lubricant done I suggest you people to buy your motul chain lubricant for every 500 kilometre u can lube yourself for change life otherwise you need to go to service centre and they will charge hundred and fifty rupees for that with GST of course pros 1. value for the money 2. best in class very stylish appealing 3. refined engine headlight and tail light LED was awesome 4 excellent breaking dual abs 5. sure man, you are roadside stranger will definitely ask. when you stop in signal or traffic someone will definitely ask you which company bike ?is this is it imported? 6. my top speed is 140 and it's very quickly to reach hundred with 6 speed gearbox . I almost drag race between all segment which I said above still I didn't do with KTM but Suzuki is the winner with above all especially with 250 cc but I know KTM is also the beast in speed. cons 1. back sitting quite high but lower than R15. so that if you go with your wife or girlfriend they will be ok for 20 minutes or half an hour without any problem after that surely they will I lye over you and it will be a extra pressure for you to seat and to handle the situation and the backseat of will be holding your shoulders or hits there is no grip to hold anywhere else. 2.bad horning definitely not for this bike convincing 3. shock absorber is not that much convincing 4. very important when I gone long drive is about 250 kilometres . single cylinder oil cooled unit got activated I believe but normally will activate. but in extra distance the engine was over heated and cooling system does the job.but the point is ,the heat is passing your legs ..u can actually feel it from your left knee part to calves does from the engine .even I was wearing a jeans still I feel the heat of the engine on my left leg. I just thought if I wore a shorts or track pant..it will definitely hurts. cannot bear the heat this is the only major problem which I face... but still I love it...you cannot expect 100% ..it's omitable in long rides. guys hope I had given a honest review...but everyone have their own view and taste. I had given mine.so enjoy riding SF 250.

    Straight to the experience of riding this motorcycle, Suzuki has done justice to the 250cc segment and bringing up a new competitor and machine into it. The machine is completely refined and a well built faired motorcycle. Had so many wonderful riding experiences with this machine. It's a complete package. A slipper clutch would have been nice but more or the same, the bike is an eye-catcher.

    1. buying experience here in Bangalore is pretty good . Though i had to wait a long for getting the number plates . 2. Riding experience is quite well . I owned a Gixxer Sf before and I feel same while driving it in city . I am yet to take it out on tour . The riding quality is good with decent pick up . I found lot of vibrations till the first servicing . 3. Looks is great though I liked the old big head light model from last Sf model . Headlight is good . Suzuki should have provided more details on the meter . Like Mileage details , speed details . 4. Servicing is ok . Not great and not bad . They charge for everything in the free service , and your amount will come around 1k, for free servicing. 5. Pros - stylish , superb performance . Cons - Vibrations other than that its superb bike to enjoy .

    The motorcycle was good for around 3500km,no issues faced upto this range and completed the 1st service at 800km. After 3500km near to the 2nd service time got oil leaking from the engine head and 1st gear become noisy(neutral to 1st).About this time i went to the service centre for 2nd service of this motorcycle and addressed these issues with them,they take 2 days for the servicing.Changed engine head gasket under company warranty(only ridden 3500km).After the servicing the gearing noise became less for just 1 day and the gearing issue came back ,this time with bigger problem.The gearing 1st,2nd and 3rd gear shifting become noisy,hard and clunky ,several times I had got false gearing.Went to service centre,but they had no idea why this noise is coming and they take some phone calls and share some of gearing noise videos to someone from the suzuki, but nothing helps to solve this issue.And they send the motorcycle without clearing the issue and told me that they send some photos and video clips to Suzuki India for this issue and they will replay once they find the solution,They are told me that this the first bike to reported with these issue.......!!!

    At the time of buying the bike looked and performed fine but after a few days let's say after 400kms it started showing all kinds of problems 1. The bike has very poor throttle response , after every gear change when you try to accelerate it makes knocking sound which will make you uncomfortable and will make you wonder if anything is wrong with the bike . Which is not present in 150 cc gixxer. 2. Its a touring bike but vibrations creep in after 4000 rpm 3. Gear change makes a lot of noise , just like bajaj bikes 4. The rear brake flutters when you hard break above 50kmph (probably fixable) Note: will post update after first service.

    Its a budget bike as compare to other with the legendary gsx engine it is having a softer seat and a right posture and better handling. As it is mostly covered with fiber frames so in off road the performance goes down and looks are as similar the legendary gsx 750r although it would give you a better performance without servicing of 3 months but a fairing goes on lose and make a terrible noise after a long term use.

The 250cc is a very interesting segment. Because this is where you get motorcycles that have aspirational styling, tonnes of features and performance that will make you own a motorcycle for much longer than you would have wanted.

We are at the Kari Motor Speedway. It’s a short and narrow racetrack near Coimbatore. It is technical and challenging, and an absolute blast on a small capacity motorcycle. And by small we mean sub-500cc bikes.
