Suzuki Motorcycle is on a spree of launching new products in the Indian market. The Japanese brand recently launched the quarter-litre Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 and the new Suzuki Gixxer SF 150. As per the reports, it is being speculated that Suzuki is also planning to launch a bigger Intruder by early 2020. Suzuki has re-entered the quatre-litre segment with the new 250 CC motor. For those not in the know, Suzuki used to have a product in the 250 CC segment, called the Inazuma.
The Suzuki Intruder 250 will be powered by the same motor that also propels the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250. The motor on the Gixxer SF 250 draws 26.1 bhp of peak power at 9000 rpm and 22 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm from the oil-cooled, single-cylinder 249 CC, SOHC, 4-valve motor. The engine is using Suzuki Oil-Cooling System (SOCS) instead of the liquid-cooling. The 250 CC motor is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. This is a BS-IV motor but on the launch of the Gixxer SF siblings, the brand announced that they are also working on a BS-VI compliant version of the motor.
As reported earlier, this motor will also power the Suzuki Gixxer 250 naked roadster which is expected to be launched in late 2019. The bigger Suzuki Intruder will also share some other components with the Gixxer SF 250. The Intruder 250 is expected to get conventional telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear. The quarter-litre cruiser will be equipped with single disc brake at both front and back. A dual-channel ABS unit is also expected to be equipped on the Intruder 250 to enhance the braking capabilities of the Intruder 250.
The design elements on the Intruder 250 will remain the same as seen on the current Intruder 150, including easy-to-grab handlebars, dual-barrel exhaust muffler, front set footpegs and low seat. The Intruder 250 will also get the same all-digital instrument cluster as seen on the Gixxer SF 250. Suzuki might showcase the Intruder 250 at Auto Expo - The Motor Show 2018. Suzuki priced the Gixxer SF 250 at Rs 1,70,655 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the Intruder 250 will be priced at least Rs 10,000 more than the Gixxer SF 250.
