We reported in December that Suzuki was in the process of launching the Suzuki Inazuma GW250 in India, now we have news of its cost in India. Indian Autos Blog has spotted the display units of the Inazuma at a dealership and also managed to get the price of the bike in India.
The Suzuki Inazuma GW250 will be priced at about Rs. 3 Lakh, ex-showroom New Delhi when launched on 27th January 2014.
Only one variant of the bike will be on sale. It will go up against the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Hyosung GT250R and the Honda CBR250R in terms of price and is low in terms of power. Will it be able to stand up to the faired-bikes? The irony of this categopry is the fact that the the cheaper KTM 390 Duke is more powerful than all the bikes here. Looks like the Suzuki Inazuma GW250 has a tough road ahead.
