Suzuki Gixxer 250, SF 250 Recall Issued To Fix Excessive Engine Vibration
In all, 199 units of the motorcycles manufactured between 12th August 2019 and 21st March 2021 have been affected.
A recall campaign to fix engine vibration issue in the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250 has been initiated India.
A combined total of 199 units of the both bikes were found to have been affected by Suzuki Motorcycle India. They were manufactured between 12th August 2019 and 21st March 2021.
The reason why the Suzuki Gixxer 250 recall (and that of the SF 250) has been initiated is that the manufacturer has found the engine’s counter balancer and the drive gear out of alignment.
In the worst-case, 2 out of 6 tail lamp mounting lugs may break due to excessive vibration, says Suzuki. Despite that, functionally, there would be no problem, the manufacturer added.
Reportedly, Suzuki technicians would be able to sort the issue out within a couple of hours and it will be done free of charge to customers.
Although each affected customer of Suzuki India will be contacted regarding the issue, due to the ongoing pandemic and fresh restrictions that are being enforced on almost a daily-basis, the time needed for the firm to complete the recall process cannot be ascertained.
Customers with the affected bikes would likely be asked to schedule an appointment with their nearest service centre to ensure minimum wait time.
