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.
