The Suzuki Gixxer 250 has been in the news for quite sometime and there have been several speculative renderings. Our rendering artist Pratyush Rout has come up with a new image which derives a few visual cues from the both smaller and bigger Gixxers.
The Gixxer 250, as imagined by our designer, features a sharply styled front fairing which borrows heavily from the GSX R-1000 litre class superbike.
The voluminous fuel tank and aggressively raked split seats add to the big bike feel. The vertically stacked twin aperture exhaust canister comes from the Gixxer 155.
Much has been speculated about the new Gixxer 250 but concrete information is scarce. The quarter litre motorcycle is expected to be powered by a single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine mated to a 6-speed transmission.
A strengthened version of the Gixxer 155’s single downtube frame is expected to underpin the motorcycle. A regular telescopic fork and monoshock rear suspension are likely to constitute the suspension system. The front and rear disc brakes are most likely to benefit from optional ABS.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 will be competing against the likes of Honda CBR250R, Mahindra Mojo, etc. Suzuki India would have to assemble the motorcycle locally with significant amount of local content to arrive at a competitive price.
