2012 Suzuki GW250 – Baby B-King the Flagship Model for Chinese Market
Suzuki officially launched its new GW250 B-King inspired motorcycle as its flagship model for China.
Presented at the China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition (CIMAMotor 2011), Suzuki GW250 will be produced in China first for the domestic market but will later be exported to Europe, Indonesia and Central and South America. The GW250 will be sold in China by Haojue, a joint venture between Suzuki and Jiangmen Dachangjiang Group and one of China’s largest motorcycle.

The GW250 is of course much smaller than the B-King, but for China and its the 16 million units/year market, it will be considered a large-displacement premium model.
