    Lightbulb Info on Suzuki TU250X Super Classic (Volty)

    Info on Suzuki TU250X Super Classic (Volty) - 1675533

    Suzuki TU250X - Volty

    This is our project which we got built in-cooperation with K-Motorsports.

    Lets talk about this gorgeous beauty...

    In early 1980's Suzuki made a a very decent motorcycle called GN-250, featuring a reliable single cylinder 4 valve engine, with dual exhaust ports. It was a cruiser with tall and wide handle-bars, long forks and short rear tyre; just as you'd expect from an 80's cruiser.
    This motorcycle "GN250" proved to be very successful for Suzuki but sadly, not everyone liked the cruiser styling, and this is when the company planned to make a new bike. In early 90's, Suzuki took the same frame and engine from the GN and gave it a minor tweak, and built a very gorgeous standard position motorcycle around it.

    This new bike was titled as TU250X (where X stands for standard position compared to cruisers) and was designated as VOLTY. It was a beautiful standard bike with good road manners and this made it a hit for Suzuki's target market and production was exclusive to Japan which assured quality.

    The TU featured a single speedo, a different round headlight, dual seats, a standard wide handle-bar, same exhaust system, thicker and shorter forks, 32mm carb (GN had 34mm) and wheels were 18F & 17R. The specs were 20Hp for TU (2 less then GN) but the lightweight of TU and revised gearing helped it a lot in terms of overall performance including fuel consumption.
    Additional Info:

    The TU250x also had variations (some came painted as Volty, and some as TU250X, different color paint n seat color combo were used, there was also a limited, fancy cast wheels version with special paint).
    The 4V TU250x (Volty) model was made till early 2000s.

    The successor to TU was ST250 launched in Japan with EFI and 2valve head engine. It was a further standardization of TU from the original GN roots.

    The modern TU250X which pops up on the searches is a ST-250 from Japan.(ST is offered as TU in USA and elsewhere).

    There were factory specials as well, called TU250G (Grasstracker) and TU250GB (BigBoy) which were Scrambler variants. These also came with 2v and 4v heads according to the model timeline)

    A more cruiser oriented version was made from GN250 with the same 22hp engine called GZ250.

    The Japan version of 2v engines are 20hp whereas US and other market variants are limited to 17hp.

    The most powerful engine among all these bikes is of GN250 (22hp) (But Gn is not the fastest bike) yet the overall performance is topped by modern Japanes 2v EFI 20Hp engines for street riding.

    -------------------------------------------

    In Pakistan, TU250X (4v) were once used by Traffic Police yet still they are very rare! A Good example is ultra hard to find!

    This is the absolute info about TU series which you might not find elsewhere. It took us months to verify and confirm all details mentioned here. Please share (with links to original source) to those who are in need of it.

    ITP still has them. But most of them are out of service awaiting auction. There was big lot in the MT last time I visited the Police Line H-11. Try your luck. You might be able to find a good one.
