The GSX Series is Suzuki's range of sport touring motorcycles
which is powered by four-valve per cylinder four-stroke engines.
The first GSX models were introduced in 1980 and the new GSX
machines upgrading much of Suzuki's four-stroke road bike range:
the GS Series. Suzuki road motorcycles with four-valve per cylinder
power were given the 'GSX' designation to differentiate the new
machines from the two-valve Suzuki's, apart from in North America
where Suzuki four-valve and two-valve four-stroke road bikes were
both designated as Suzuki GS motorcycles. The two-valve engines
remained in production in parallel with the four-valve power plants
and the larger two-valve four-cylinder engines gaining shaft-drive
were being used to power Suzuki's more touring-orientated bikes
such as the GS 850G and GS1100G, with the performance oriented
Suzuki's being GSX machines.
This 1980 two cylinder Suzuki GSX250 was purchased in 2012 by a company specializing in renting vehicles for film and TV productions where reliability is of the upmost importance hence before it went out on set this GSX250 was checked throughout having a new rear tyre, the chain and sprockets were replaced and then MoT'd. This Suzuki GSX250 finished in orange requires cosmetic restoration and is supplied with a V5C registration document and invoices relating to the work carried out in August 2012. It also has the old MoT test certificate and owners handbook.
