The GW250 came out in China in 2012. It is possible that Suzuki intended it for China only and then decided to sell it in other markets. It is a big hit in China from what I gather. Of coarse a 250cc motorcycle is a big bike there. Mostly they have 50-125cc scoots and light motos.
It did have some problems at first and there was even a recall for a couple of issues. I assume they have all been resolved. One was something about the transmission going into neutral instead of shifting. There was also some fuel pump failures, radiator leaks/bad hose and worst front brake failures. I did a google search and could find no problems with the GW250 outside of the early models in China so I guess all have been fixed.
