Patent sketches of what is believed to be the Suzuki GSX-R250 have emerged online from Australia. The quarter litre Suzuki has been in the news for quite some time now with numerous speculative renderings doing rounds.
The Suzuki GSX-R250 is expected to be based on a beefed up platform of the Gixxer 155 twins that are being made in India. The patent sketches reveal a design that has a few obvious references to the smaller siblings such as the fuel tank.
The butterfly shaped headlamps, fairing panels and tailpiece with split seats take inspiration from the bigger Gixxer models. The sketches also reveal that the bike will be suspended by telescopic front forks and rear monoshock. The overall design is not very far from what we have envisioned through our rendering.
The power is expected to come from a twin-cylinder liquid-cooled 250 cc engine that is borrowed from the Inazuma 250. The motor which is known for its refinement is expected to have a higher state of tune. Something in the vicinity of 30 PS would make it an attractive proposition.

The Suzuki GSXR-250 is expected to be positioned to take on the likes of Yamaha R25 and KTM RC250. It is likely to undercut the recently unveiled Honda CBR250RR. It could be one of the primary markets for the motorcycle.
