The Suzuki Gixxer 250 will fill the gap left void by the Inazuma in the quarter-litre segment.
Despite being highly praised for its small displacement sporty motorcycles, Suzuki has missed a quarter-litre model in the Indian market for a long time. However, the Japanese company is gearing up to bring the 250cc Gixxer in the country soon, probably by mid-2019.
This new Suzuki Gixxer 250 carries a naked street design and the bodywork looks pleasantly similar to the Hajou DR300, a motorcycle built by Suzuki with a Chinese partner. It is expected to sport conventional forks up front and a monoshock for the rear suspension. The 17-inch wheels will be wrapped in MRF tyres. The information console is expected to be an all-digital unit, likely to be taken from the Gixxer 150 itself.
As seen on the patented image from Suzuki, the upcoming Gixxer 250 might have standard air-cooling with an oil cooler. The power output might be close to around 22 BHP, being very similar to the Yamaha FZ25. ABS will be offered at the time of launch, considering the mandatory norm being enforced from April 2019.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 might have a price tag of around Rs. 1.3 lakhs and will be a direct rival to the Yamaha FZ25, which also sells at a similar price range. Though there are good reasons to consider an early 2019 launch, it seems highly unlikely until mid year.
