Description

1975 Suzuki GT250A
Registration no. JNT 333N
Frame no. 63456
Engine no. 80159

Stung by criticism of its lacklustre GT250M, Suzuki responded with the GT250A. Gone was the 250M's 'Ram Air' cylinder head cowl, while more importantly the engine gained a four-bearing crankshaft, one-piece cylinder head, extra transfer ports and larger carburettors. Suzuki claimed a maximum power output of 32bhp for the GT250A, two horsepower more than the GT250M, a seemingly minor gain that translated into vastly superior on-the-road performance. Tested by Bike magazine in February 1976, a 250A reached 91mph and rocketed through the standing quarter-mile in 15.02 seconds, an improvement of 9mph and 1.2 seconds respectively over the 250M tested the previous year. This GT250A was restored recently to its former glory, including paintwork by Dream Machine, and will have been fitted with a pair of mirrors prior to sale. The machine is offered with sundry bills and a V5C document.
