      I have a GT250R and seeing a great deal on a 650R.  Is the only difference between the two the engine size (cc’s)?

      Does the rider seat differently?  Are the riding pegs placed on different locations?

      Hey,

      Speaking of the same GTR (regardless of CC size) these are true:
      – Rearsets are the same | Same locations too
      – Pegs are the same | Same seats too
      – Same mirrors | Same clip-on bars

      What the 650R however does differ from 250R is:
      – rear shock “may raise” the height of the bike just a little. (different shock)
      – front forks have adjustable dampening
      – handling wise it has fatter rear tyre and swingarm that’s all (not much!)  | front rim is the same all CC’s but 650 gets a 120–front tyre than 110—, as it can do beyond 120 mph anyway.

      Hope this helps, if unsure, shout away.   👍

      I woudn’t focus on the NAKED GT bikes (whatever CC’s) as there will be some variants to even how they look at the front-end from 2003 all the way to present day!
