DS250 1980 (T) USA (E03)

info

Listed for only one year, and in North America only, the 23hp @ 6000rpm reed valve two stroke was loosely based on the competition RM250, albeit with a radically de-tuned engine and full road legal equipment making the model more ‘Trail’ than ‘Enduro’.
It was still a useful machine weighing in at 118kg was also quite light. Its short model run speaks volumes for it’s popularity, in fact it was completely out-classed by superior machinery from Yamaha, prompting Suzuki to develop a far better 250 model for later that year.
