I have to respectfully disagree with Eddie about the chariot and the horse because I rode my Suzuki GZ250 for the first time today since I bought it three weeks ago. I had it on the interstate and I was keeping up with the other traffic goin 70mph. It did really good through the city as well. I think its all about how you ride it. It’s a machine and it will only do what u tell it to and go as fast as you make it go. It’s all about the rider….not the ride itself.
