Suzuki GN250 bobber

Spotted this Suzuki GN250, known in my home country as Suzuki Intruder 250, some days ago while walking the dog. This is a 2001 model-year, the last for it in Brazil before being indirectly replaced by the GN 125. Even though the 125 outsold the 250, not just due to the cost but also benefitted by a longer local production run (actually CKD assembly, since Suzuki has turned to its Chinese partner HaoJue for the development and manufacturing of most of its small-displacement range).
Nowadays it's not so easy to spot a GN250 in stock condition, with most either beaten out in various states of disrepair, and others modified. This one is actually not the first modded one that I spotted, but I see it quite often. Even though its owner didn't really got rid of some features such as the turn indicators, rearview mirrors, front fender and front brake in order to make it look more old-school, and had even managed a quite smart solution to keep the speedometer by relocating it to the fork, it does resemble more a bobber than any other motorcycle type.
