‘Each bike suits different needs’
Each of these bikes will slap a smile on your face.
The BMW sits at the touring end of the spectrum. Bigger, more powerful and comfortable, it’s suited to the road rider who fancies the odd gravel excursion. Yamaha’s XT250 sits at the opposite end; far more an offroader than a road bike, with light, manageable, soft power. The CCM and Suzuki sit in the middle. The Suzuki remains a simple and effective do-it-all bike. And think of the CCM as a modern-day Suzuki with trick suspension and components, but with price as the drawback. I’d have the Suzuki.
