Suzuki TU250 Volty model history
1994—2003

I have tried to tell the DR 125 SE model history on this page as I know it. This page is still under construction. I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.


The first generation TU was introduced to the Japanese domestic market (JDM) in 1994 in both 125cc or 249cc models. Variations of the bike marketed in the JDM and other regions include the VanVan (Asia, Europe), TU250G Grasstracker  (Asia), TU250GB Grasstracker Bigboy(Asia) and TU250 Volty (Asia, Europe).

Confusingly, the first generation TU250, marketed in Asia as the Volty, was marketed in Europe from 1997-2003 — also as the TU250X Volty.

On this page I will tell the model history of the Japanese TU250 Volty as I know it.


The original TU250 Volty was basically a Japan built GN250 with a higher seating position, no gear indicator or tacho. The bike was lightweight with a standard riding posture meant to emulate the UJM — Universal Japanese Motorcycle — popular in the 1960s and 1970s.

Volty was a very popular bike in Japan. It was cheap, lightweight and easy to ride. And it looked good!

It was not a complicated bike, it used an air-cooled engine with two valves and a single camshaft. The mill is known for its reliability and extremely low maintenance cost.


Minor changes and upgrades were made during the years of production (2004–2003) but the TU250 Volty remained mechanically the same, the changes usually only cosmetical.
