Suzuki Motorcycles recently launched the fully faired Gixxer SF 250 in the capital which boasts of all-new styling, revised ergonomics and equipment. Now, the images of upcoming 2019 Suzuki Gixxer 250 have surfaced online which is the naked roadster version of the former. The images reveal front styling of the motorcycle including muscular fuel-tank, engine shroud, alloy wheel, front mudguard, front forks, engine bash plate and dual-tone colour scheme. The naked roadster will be launched in a few next months this year.
Also, it is expected that the Suzuki Gixxer 250 will get the same rear end as seen on its fully-faired sibling which includes - new chrome-garnished dual barrel exhaust muffler and a sharp tail consisting the all-new tail lamp. The Gixxer 250 will also carry the new fully digital instrument cluster seen on the SF 250. The naked roadster is expected to sport a sharp looking LED headlamp. Other equipment like suspension setup and a dual-channel ABS unit will also be carried forward from the SF 250. However, the riding triangle will be upright and more comfortable.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 will get propulsion from the same motor that also powers its fully-faired sibling - Gixxer SF 250. The motor on the SF 250 is a single-cylinder 249 cc, SOHC, 4-valve which is also equipped with the Suzuki Oil-Cooling System. The motor is capable of producing 26.1 bhp of peak power at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 7500 rpm. Gixxer 250 will also get a 6-speed gearbox. While the design of the alloy wheel on the Gixxer 250 is similar to the one on the SF 250, but we will have to wait to see if the naked roadster also gets the same section tyres.
The Japanese brand is expected to price the upcoming 2019 Suzuki Gixxer 250 much less than the SF 250, we expect it to be around Rs 1.50 lakh to Rs 1.60 lakh. For the update, the Gixxer SF 250 retails at Rs 1.70 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). At this price point, the Gixxer 250 will be up against Yamaha F25, KTM 200 Duke and Bajaj Dominar 400.
