Suzuki Motorcycle India has launched the new Gixxer 250 in India. The new Gixxer 250 has been launched at price Rs. 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new Suzuki Gixxer 250 is a sibling of recently launched Gixxer SF 250. The bike will go on sale in India earlier this year. The Suzuki Gixxer 250 enters a highly competitive market and will compete with the KTM 250 Duke, Yamaha FZ25 and the Bajaj Dominar 400.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 comes with a sculpted fuel tank with the extended shrouds at both ends. The body theme looks premium with the LED headlamp. The split seats and LED taillight provides a sporty look to the motorcycle. The bike also comes with the Gixxer’s distinctive dual muffler exhaust as well as brushed finish alloy wheels along with a new all-new digital instrument console carried over from the Gixxer SF 250.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 is powered by a 249 cc four-stroke, single-cylinder, SOHC engine with fuel injection which generates a max power of 26 bhp at 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 22.6 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine comes with the manufacturer’s Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS) technology that was developed specifically for the Indian market, which the company says works efficiently to reduce engine temperatures, negating the need of liquid-cooling.
The bike gets telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock at the rear, while both the wheels equipped with the disc brakes at either end with dual-channel ABS as standard. The Gixxer 250 gets a ground clearance of 165 mm while the seat height is 800 mm, both of which is similar to the Gixxer SF 250. The kerb weight stands at 156 kg, which makes it five kilos lighter than its full-faired sibling.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 comes in two colors – Metallic Matte Platinum Silver/ Metallic Matte Black; and a Metallic Matte Black. Suzuki is also offering a range of accessories on the Gixxer 250 including a skid plate, DC charging socket, knuckle cover, saddlebags, tank pad, knee grip, and a bumper bracket.
