Default GW 250 Inazuma

Hi there,

I have bought this model which has just been released this month in Australia.
Picked her up Monday so only 150 kilometres on clock so far.
While I'm in a local forum, it would be interesting to swap notes and experiences with international owners. I went for the Cardinal Red, only because it may be more visible to car drivers than the black. The black does look good, especially when the light highlights the chrome areas.

Anyway, anyone else bought one yet?

Ciao for now

Hey dude i bought the black one, had it up to 138 kph, seems heavy needs to lose weight, perhaps a single exhaust ,might save 8 or 10 kgs.

Hi Robeta,

I've racked up a thousand k's now and the bike does not feel heavy to me. In fact, on highways when large trucks com the other way, the weight is a saviour in that you don't get pushed across the road as much. Most of the k's were put on in rides of three or four hours duration, with 400ks per tank quite easy.
With the heat waves, floods and storms her in Queensland, I haven't been on the bike for the last 6 weeks.
I am really happy with the little Suzi and will get it out again ASAP.

Are you in Aus or elsewhere?

Ok mate. you`d never guess where i am so i will tell ya.

I live in Guilin Guanxi China, i am from Scotland, but not born there lol its a bit of a mixed blood thing as my mother is from England my father from Scotland , i was raised in Scotland but born in England.

I am married to a Chinese woman and have a 2 year old boy.

Motorbikes are my passion an i have three.

One for the mountain dirt tracks, one for the local driving and the suzi for long distant driving.

How`s that for an intro...

OK GUYS AND MAYBE SOME GALS

I live in China, but not Chinese, I have discovered their equivelent version of E-BAY its called TAOBAO, pronounced like town but leave out the "n" so you have tow (tao) same for bow Like a dog barking (bow wow) so you have bow(bao) towbow (Taobao) if you use google chrome it will automatically translate all (Most) of the Chinese into English.
Easy,, so you can see all the goodies they have for the gw250 as its called here, the rest of the world its called the INAZUMA.

here is a link to the treasure trove.

Default Farckle on me bike

Yes i have a few things already.
1. crash bar stainless steel
2. luggage carrier with side boxes (boxes not fitted) but have them + rear luggage trunk
3. day running lights (very cool) look like hand protectors. (gauntlets)with built in white led`s (like an audi led`s)
4. led spot lamps 35watt each but look like 150 watt brightness
5. blue parking/day running lights (go well with the gauntlets)
6. 55/60w main beam bulb,,,as the usual HID XENON kits **** up the instrument cluster (clocks to me and you) so far no way round that unless you get a pre fitted X audi on range rover front system, be about 400 buck to you. a lot of trouble to do.

8. mobile/portable gps tracker with magnet

I know what you mean. Went to Motegi last October....it's alright where they have signs in English too, but when they don't, we'll, follow a map as best we can and hope for the best lol.

Can you put up a still of your bike?

I'll try to put mine up too....bog standard though.
