Suzuki Motorcycles India has launched the Gixxer 250 in India for Rs. 1,70,655 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The full-faired offering takes inspiration from the older GSX models for the headlamp cluster that gets three-piece set and is a full-LED unit. The fairing is sharply designed and looks lean, while the bike rides gets two piece handlebars, digital instrument console, split seats and the twin barrel exhaust. The bike will be riding on double five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 110/70 front and 150/60 rear tubeless tyres. The new single-cylinder engine is developed by the brand and employs its new oil-cooling system called the SOCS or Suzuki Oil Cooling System.
Power on the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 will come from a 249 cc single-cylinder, oil-cooled, fuel-injected, SOHC engine that churns out 26 bhp at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque available at 7500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. It needs to be be noted that most offerings in this segment do not make that kind of power, barring the CBR 250R that gets a liquid-cooled motor. It will be interesting then as how is the real world performance from this unit. The bike is underpinned by a revised frame as that on Gixxer 155, while the kerb weight stands at 161 kg. Suspension duties are taken care by telescopic forks and a monoshock unit at the rear, while braking performance will come from disc brakes at either end with dual-channel ABS as standard.
In addition, 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF 155 is also launched for Rs. 1,09870 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). It gets cosmetic upgrades along the lines of the new Gixxer SF 250 including the new headlamp cluster, fairing and seat. The mechanicals carried over are the same.
