Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

1971 GT250 sales brochure from Japan. Click to enlarge.
I found this on a Japanese website somewhere. At first I wasn't sure if I should put this on the T250 or the GT250 brochure page. I don't think the model was called GT250 outside Japan until '73 when the Ram Air cylinder head was introduced. In the Western World the model was known as the T250. Still, the Japanese '71 GT250 didn't look like the '71 T250 so I'd guess this was the first GT250 model available anywhere.

Yes, it is the first GT250 model. It was sold even in Europe, at least in Great Britain, under the model name TT250. I found these brochure scans at www.t250.co.uk. It appears to be the same Japanese GT250 brochure.
The GT250/TT250 was essentially similar to the later T250 models. According to the www.t250.co.uk the model was only sold in the UK as the TT250 and as a GT250 in Japan. The same source also tell that there appears to have been a lull in production of T250R's in early '72 and it's during this time that TT250's appear in the UK in the low 40000's frame number range. The
The model looks a lot like the '72 T350R, the main differences being the smaller engine capacity and lack of a grab rail.

The first GT250 model available outside Japan (except for the rare TT250, see the brochures above). The Ram Air cylinder head and disc brakes at the front (single disc) were the most distinct differences from the T250. This brochure was kindly sent to me by Erik Hobo from the Netherlands.

This one is from some Japanese website. Unfortunately the quality of this scan is not that great but you can see the pictures anyway. I'm not sure of the year, a visitor of this site told me that it is a 1976 GT250B. I would agree if I hadn't seen a similar RG50 brochure and as far as I know the RG50 wasn't released until '77. The model name was changed to RG250 in Japan 1978 so I'd guess this brochure has to be from 1977. Tell me if you disagree.

1978 GT250C sales brochure from United Kingdom (four pages). Click to enlarge.
This brochure was kindly scanned and sent to me by Dave Sykes from UK. “I've been collecting brochures since the late 1980's, my main interest are the Suzuki GT models from the 1970's. This was the last of the UK GT250 brochures I was looking to obtain and I didn't actually locate this one until 2004 so it is pretty rare,” Dave writes.

In some countries (at least in Japan) GT250 became RG250 in 1978. In many countries the model was sold as the X7, in some countries it was called GT250-X7. Printed in Japan, October 1977.
