When one cylinder moves in a multi, the others move too. And there's more surfaces available for wear and support of bearings, etc.

Looks like a nice commute bike. The standard design is still my favorite for comfort. The single cylinder engine has fewer moving parts than a twin and maintenance should be easier. It's probably made in China and there's nothing wrong with that. Even BMW is having some of their engines built in China.

I merely stated my opinion of the Suzuki TU250, and asked some questions about its cost effectiveness. What have you offered in this thread Jim. T?




$3500 for a 250cc fi thumper with a rear drum brake, non-adjustable suspensions, 5-speed, (looks to be like) non-radial tubed tires.. somehow I don't see this thumper capable of cruising comfortably with highway traffic at 70 mph for extended period of time like the Rebel or Ninja 250.

What is the fuel mileage of the new FI 883 Harleys?? as good as my $1699, 250cc carbed Chinese scooter?
I didn't "assume" on your position, it was very clear from your first post. You started ragging on the OP about all sorts of irrelivent bs, none of which the OP asked for. It's right here for all to see.

Jim T.

and BTW I like thumpers too.

I've ridden thumper dirt bikes, rebuilt topends on them every season due to the sustained high rpm engine operation, seen first hand what cylinder head/rings damage look like when you sustain high engine rpm. Bearing damage, not so much..

Twin cylinder engine do not suffer the same heat related type damage as a thumper engine at sustined high rpm engine operation.

Again, have you ridden a thumper at 8000 rpm for any sustained amount of time?

So far, all three of your posts in this thread contain assumptions, not only towars me, but also towards thread starter's preference of what he wants.
Would you disagree that at $3499 there are no better performing bikes on the market (new or used) to be better than a Suzuki TU250, am I wrong on that one??

Again, what have you offered in this thread, Jim. T?.. other than trying to make me feel bad and how badly you want to be right?

Why would I ride ANYTHING at 8k sustained for a long period of time?
And wether or not there are better new or used bikes available has no bearing on the OP's original post.
I'm sorry if you feel that this was about what's right and wrong, it's not. I've assumed nothing here.

Jesus......start acting like adults. I've seen 7 year olds act more civily.

It's words on a computer screen written by some random person that knows nothing about you, and you're letting them get under your skin for no reason at all. Move on already.

I posed simple questions in my previous post, appearantly they were too difficult to answer.

My opinion is that $3500 (or less) could be better spent on used bikes that would out perform the Suzuki TU250 as a street commuter.

I just found out my girlfriend had a sex change 5 years ago. Should I break up with her?

And I replied, is it YOUR $3,500 bucks? No it isn't.
And what part of "Why would I ride ANYTHING at 8k sustained for a long period of time?" did you misinterpret? Your question was irrelevant to why the OP likes the Suzuki TU250 anyway.

You sir are fairly dense aren't you?
