The Suzuki Gixxer that has been a grand success for Japanese bike maker in India, is likely to see the introduction of a bigger displacement sibling, the Gixxer 250. Earlier than this, we have seen the automaker has updated ongoing model whenever required in lieu of generating volume by keeping it fresh all the time. The introduction of a 250cc variant will help the bike maker in marking the presence in the rapidly growing sub-300cc segment.
According to a report by a website, it is known that the Suzuki Gixxer 250 which was earlier expected to hit the Indian soil by early 2019, will now launch by the middle of 2019. Further, we are expecting a bike with the quarter-litre engine in both naked and full fairing version (SF) just like the ongoing model in the market. It will go against the rivals such as the Yamaha FZ25 and the Pulsar 220F. As like the Gixxer 150 variants, we could see the introduction of naked trim first. Hopefully, the faired Gixxer 250 join the streetfighter sibling on time.
with this upcoming, we can see an all-new single-cylinder with displacement near 250cc. As the rumours around suggesting that the Houje 300 will be introduced earlier than the Gixxer 250 in the global market. Similar powertrain with oil cooler/air-cooler can be observed bolted beneath the fuel tank instead of a full-blown liquid-cooled system. It will help the automaker in keeping bike’s pricing in check.
Apparently, we could see the upcoming Gixxer 250 with styling shared from the existing model however with a host of new features. There is a lot of chances of introducing USD front forks instead of the conventional telescopic unit. In addition to this, the braking system could also get updated with the disc brakes at both wheels. Altogether, the ABS system that is going to be a mandatory object on the motorcycle above 125cc from April 2019, could also be evident as a dual-channel unit.
At price tag, an aggressive amount around INR 1.35 lakh is expected to compete with the rival in competition, the Yamaha FZ-25.
