The only two wheeler company which has been posting sales growth in India during these troubled times, Suzuki has launched yet another motorcycle which will help them continue with their sales growth trajectory.
Suzuki India has launched the new Gixxer 250 at Rs.1.60 lakhs, ex-sh. It has been described both as a powerful and bold offering which is also agile and fun to ride and is set to attract the attention of a younger segment of buyers in the country.
To promote this entry level sports bike, Suzuki India has launched a new TVC. The lines used in the TVC to highlight the motorcycle are – “Born of Love. Born of Adrenaline. Born of Adventure. From the house of Hayabusa and GSX-R. Comes the new Gixxer and Gixxer 250. Born of Greatness.” Watch the TVC below.
Similar to the 2019 Gixxer 155 in terms of design, the Gixxer 250 naked quarter-litre motorcycle gets LED headlamp, split seats, a sculpted fuel tank of 12 liter capacity with extended shrouds on either sides, LED tail lamp and brushed alloy wheels fitted with tubeless tyres.
It also gets its digital instrument console borrowed from the Gixxer SF250 with negative LCD display. The Suzuki Gixxer 250 is available in two colour schemes of Metallic Matte Platinum Silver/ Metallic Matte Black and Metallic Matte Black.
Suzuki Gixxer 250 is powered by a newly developed 249cc, 4 stroke, single cylinder, SOHC engine offering 26 bhp power at 9,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm torque at 7,000 rpm mated to a 6 speed gearbox. It is this same engine which also powers the recently launched 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF250 and 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP edition.
The engine gets Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS) tech. This has been especially developed for India which is said to reduce engine temperatures, negating the need of liquid cooling. Suspension is via telescopic fork in the front and monoshock at the rear while braking is through disc brake on both ends with dual channel ABS offered as standard. The bike commands kerb weight of 156 kgs and gets a seat of 800 mm height.
Suzuki Gixxer 250 launch in India will see it compete against the Yamaha FZ25 priced at Rs.1.34 lakhs and the KTM Duke 200, which carries a price tag of Rs.1.62 lakhs. The past few months have seen a stream of Gixxer bikes launched in India. In May it was the Suzuki Gixxer SF250 and Gixxer SF launched in the country. July 2019 saw the new Gixxer comes in while the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP edition was launched in July this year.
