Suzuki Inazuma 250 (2013 onwards)

The Suzuki Inazuma 250 is one of the most under-rated starter bikes on the market. It can be referred to as both a commuter bike and a fun bike, or we can just simply call it a naked bike. It isn’t the fastest machine you can ride on an A2 licence, but it certainly does what it’s supposed to do, and does it really well.

The Suzuki GW250 Inazuma is designed specifically for commuting, but it can do some twisty roads as well. Its handling is excellent and the riding comfort is surprisingly high, especially for a naked bike. The 250cc parallel twin engine comes with a modern fuel injection system, which positively affects fuel economy of the bike.

There are no issues with reliability and build quality, as you would expect from a budget motorcycle. Therefore, you will never have to worry about servicing too much. On top of that, you will also get some useful features such as the gear indicator and fuel gauge, which is a big plus.
