Suzuki Gixxer 250 might debut in India by early 2019


Fresh reports say that Suzuki Gixxer 250 is in works and might launch in India by early 2019. It will be powered by a fuel-injected 250cc engine. The bike will go up against Yamaha FZ25. 

Earlier, we reported that Suzuki might consider bringing the naked version of the GSX-250R to the Indian shores. Gixxer series is only available in India, while globally the naked bikes come in GSX-S series.

Fresh reports suggest that Suzuki Gixxer 250 might debut our market by as early as April 2019. It will be the naked version of the GSX-250R but will use a different engine and come with a new set of features. For styling cues, it will borrow some design elements from GSX-S750 and GSX-S1000.

Suzuki GSX-250R gets a 249cc liquid cooled twin-cylinder engine. However, Gixxer might just come with a 250cc single-cylinder fuel injected engine. A twin-cylinder bike will be launched at a higher price.

Suzuki Gixxer 250 might produce somewhere around 20 BHP and 23 Nm of peak torque. The figures will be a lot lower than the global-spec 250cc GSX. The engine might pair up with a 6-speed gearbox.

For lowering the costs, it might use conventional telescopic forks instead of USDs and mono-shock absorbers at the back. For braking purposes, the Gixxer 250 will come with front and rear disc brakes paired up with a dual-channel ABS setup.

The quarter-litre naked bike will come with features such as a fully digital instrument cluster, LED headlamps, LED tail lights, split seats and premium spoke alloy wheels. For safety, it will come with a dual ABS setup.

In India, Yamaha FZ25 and KTM Duke 250 will be its ideal rivals. While the FZ25 might also come in a similar price bracket, Duke 250 will be priced much higher than Gixxer 250.

The increasing demand for premium motorcycles has led to an increase in bikes in the 200-300cc segment. Now, this segment boasts off many motorcycles from different brands including naked, fully faired sportsbike, commuter-sports and adventure motorcycles.
