Leaked images have revealed that Suzuki has been busy readying the much awaited Suzuki Gixxer 250 cc bike. The upcoming entry-level sportsbike could be released by 2016-end. Its India debut could happen in mid-2017. The Gixxer 250 cc will rival bikes like the KTM Duke 200, RC200 and Honda CBR250R. It will command a significant premium over the Suzuki Gixxer SF 155. The Gixxer 250 will become a logical upgrade for current Gixxer 150 and Gixxer SF owners. Not much is known about the Suzuki Gixxer 250 but you can read on for all the available details.
Speculations abound that the Gixxer 250cc too could have both a naked and a faired model. While a naked model could rival the KTM 200 Duke, the faired sibling will be apt to rival the RC200. The Suzuki Gixxer 250 could slot in perfectly between the KTM twins and models like the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Benelli TNT 300 and Yamaha YZF-R3. A report on internet says that the 250cc bike could also be sold as the GSX R250.
