The new Suzuki Gixxer 250 & SF 250 BS6 will be available in India soon.
Suzuki is not ready to compromise on the performance figures of their bikes, which is quite unlike the Yamaha’s approach in order to make the engines BS6 compliant. As we can see in the picture, the 249cc single-cylinder engine is going to produce 26.5 PS of power at 9000 RPM. The duo will be coupled to the same 6-speed gearbox that is presently there.
Apart from this, as the bikes itself are novel to the market, it is quite unlikely for the duo to see any kind of cosmetic or other structural changes. They both use the same underpinnings and the variation between the duo is based on their styling and riding preference. The Gixxer SF 250 is a fully faired bike having sportier ergonomics. Whereas the Gixxer 250 is a naked streetfighter and focuses more on a friendly city ride. They both will probably retain their LED headlamps, LED taillights and the digital instrument cluster. The duo gets telescopic forks at the front with a monoshock at the rear. It also gets disc brakes at both ends, with the support of dual-channel ABS.
As of now, the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Gixxer SF 250 are priced at Rs. 1,59,800/- and Rs. 1,71,000/- respectively (ex-showroom Delhi). It is obvious for the prices to see a hike post the BS6 compliance. These bikes compete with the likes of the KTM Duke 250, TVS Apache RR 310 and the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200. Moreover, we believe that Suzuki is going to bring them out by the end of this year, or definitely before the deadline.
