The Suzuki Across was introduced to the Japanese home market in April 1990. The model waseven exported in Australia, as a 1991 year's model, starting from October 1990.

Until production ceased in 1998, the Suzuki Across GSX 250 F was equipped with a liquid-cooled 248cc four-cylinder block and powered by a pair of 27mm Mikuni BSW27 carburettors. It was capable of delivering 46 hp of power at 14,500 RPM and 26.4 Nm at 10,500 RPM, making it a machine that had to be had at high revs if you wanted to make the most of its strength. The gearbox was six-speed.

The Across inline-four engine came from the GSX-R250, althought the engine characteristics of Across was tamed a bit and optimized mainly for medium and low speeds, making it a sporty but practical city commuter bike, "Urban Sports" according to Suzuki. The riding position is upright with good footing and it has a full cowl that blocks heat from the engine room.

What made the Across 250 stand out was the dummy fuel tank. A large storage compartment was placed where the fuel tank normally is. The trunk was large enough to transport an XL size full face helme, and it was completely lined and sealed with rubber to prevent the entry of water. It even had a courtesy light.

The actual fuel tank was located under the seat. The fuel cap is accessed from the rear of the bike, behind the seat. A electro-magnetic lock allows refueling without pulling out the ignition key. The tank swallows 12 litres of fuel and gives the bike a range of 200–240 kms. It was small, but the bike had a two-stage low-fuel warning light.

If you look closely, you can see that it says ”X913” on the decals. Apparently X913 was the project name of the motorcycle during its development cycle. Early test bikes featured the decals and they eventually made it onto production bikes.

The Across is a remarkably powered motorcycle for its engine size. It features a 4-stroke 248 cc DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine featuring a CDI unit and two twin carburettors. The engine revs up to 16,500 rpm and makes either 40 or 45 PS (29 or 33 kW), depending on year. Model years 1990-1993 made 45 PS, but later models were restricted to 40 PS, in line with changes in Japanese law.

Although the Across 250 was a nice and good-looking bike, it wasn't a huge commercial success. It was one of the most expensive models in its class in Japan and Australia when it hit the market, partly justified by its outstanding equipment.
The production of the Across 250 ended in 1998.
