Japanese auto major Suzuki is also likely to launch the Intruder 250. However, the naked version will enter our shores before the cruiser. Expect Suzuki to launch the quarter-litre Intruder next year, most likely at the 2020 Auto Expo. It is believed that Suzuki might price the motorcycle at around Rs 1.8 lakh (Ex-showroom). When launched, it will be the only quarter-litre cruiser in the country.
It’s given that the upcoming Intruder will have a completely different character compared to the sporty Gixxer SF 250. Understandably, the new chassis is expected to be revised slightly for a more laid-back riding stance. Expect a longer swingarm, easy-to-reach handlebars, low seat and forward-set footpegs for that quintessential cruiser stance. Features like LED headlight and tail light, LCD instrument cluster are likely to be carried over from the faired bike.
Expect the Intruder 250 to be powered by the Gixxer SF 250’s 249cc fuel-injected SOHC unit which produces 26.5PS and 22.6Nm. That said, Suzuki might tweak the final drive ratios, just like how it did with the 150cc Intruder.
