Suzuki Motorcycle India will unveil its quarter-litre naked roadster-the Gixxer 250 in the country on May 20, 2019, reports suggest. It is expected to launch in India sometime in June and a fully-faired version of the roadster called, ‘Gixxer 250 SF’, is likely to be added at a later stage. Reports in media indicate that the May 20th unveiling could actually be the dealer preview of the motorcycle ahead of official launch in the country.
Power on the prowess is likely to come from a single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled engine instead of a liquid-cooled unit. The air/oil cooled engine is expected to get 2 valve with an estimated power output ranging between 20-23 bhp. In addition, the single cylinder unit will adhere to the BS-VI emission norms and come equipped with the fuel-injection technology. The fully-faired version of the bike will share specifications with the naked roadster.
Visually, the Suzuki Gixxer 250 will take styling inspiration from Haojue DR300 (Suzuki GSX-S300) which is available in select international markets. On the feature front, expect the bike to get LED headlamp at front, LED tail-lamp at rear and a full digital display. Suspension set-up could comprise conventional units to curb pricing, something which we have already seen on the India-spec Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0 and MT -15.
Stopping power on the Gixxer 250 will come from disc units at both ends along with a dual-channel anti-lock-braking system. As for pricing, the roadster is likely to cost under Rs 1.40 lakh, whereas its fully-faired version could be priced under Rs 1.50 lakh (ex-showroom). In its segment, the Suzuki Gixxer 250 will go squarely against Yamaha FZ25.
