Suzuki Gixxer 250 (GSX 250R) rendered ahead of launch this year


It remains to be seen if the quarter litre Gixxer will adopt a single-cylinder or twin-cylinder.

A speculative rendering of Suzuki Gixxer 250 which could also be called as GSX-250R has emerged on the Japanese Young Magazine’s cover page. The magazine has also rendered a GSX-S250F superbike.

The rendering portrays a fully faired compact sportsbike which treads away the brand’s conventional design direction, characterized by a a shield shaped, edgy, single headlamp. Though not yet confirmed, Suzuki is expected to reveal the bike at the 2016 EICMA in November this year.

Young Magazine’s Suzuki Gixxer 250 rendering (GSX-250R) portrays a mean looking motorcycle with LED headlamps.

Instead, Gixxer 250 could be employing a pair of mean looking cat eye-like LED headlights, complemented by shape edged front fairing as shown. A tall windscreen, muscular fuel tank and a sporty tailpiece with split seats round off the design.

While Suzuki hasn’t confirmed that a 250 cc motorcycle in indeed in the works, the growth of compact sportsbike segment across the world makes it highly irresistible for the motorcycle maker┬áto stay indifferent. A few leaked patent images earlier this year, confirmed that the bike is in the making. Further details of the motorcycle are sketchy as of now.

While Indian media is expecting the motorcycle to be a bigger version of the highly successful Gixxer twins with a single-cylinder 250 cc engine, international media is hoping for a spiritual successor to original four-cylinder GSX-250R of 90’s, albeit with a twin-cylinder mill.

If Suzuki opts for the former, we would be getting affordable compact sportsbike and if it opts for the latter, we would be looking at a sophisticated high-revving contender which will have the likes of Yamaha YZF-R25 and Kawasaki Ninja 300 in sights.
