The Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is expected to be priced at around Rs. 1.75 lakhs.
The last to join the quarter-litre party, Suzuki will launch the Gixxer SF 250 on the 20th of May, along with the updated Gixxer SF, both the motorcycles sharing their styling with an LED headlight up front, split seats, dual barrel exhaust and the rear mudguard bolted on from the swingarm.
Powering the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is a 249cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine which produces 26.5 PS at 9000 RPM and 22.6 Nm at 7500 RPM. The fuel-injected 4-valve SOHC motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the bike tips the scales at 161 kgs. The Gixxer SF 250 has a seat height of 800 mm which should make it accessible to most riders while the fuel tank capacity is 12-litres.
Using discs on both ends, telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear, the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 runs on wider tyres than its 150cc sibling with a 110 section at the front and a 150 section at the rear. We expect the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 to be priced at Rs. 1.75 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai), competing directly with the Pulsar RS 200 and Honda CBR250R while also rivalling the power starved Yamaha FZ25.
