The new Suzuki GSX-R250 could be gracing the manufacturer’s Tokyo Motor Show stall tomorrow and here is a latest rendering of the quarter litre warrior. Given that the 250 cc motorcycle segment is trending worldwide, it is no surprise that the Japanese biggies Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki are readying their new candidates.
Honda will be bring a near production concept which previews the CBR250RR to the show. Going by this rendering, the GSX-R250 would be pitted directly against the Honda’s compact supersports bike. The design approach is equally edgy if not edgier.
The compact yet sharp front fairing is imagined to sport two small headlamp units (possible LEDs) and a sizable windshield. The profile is characterized by multi-layered side panels, a chiseled fuel tank, stubby silencer canister, split seats, and alloy wheels with interesting pattern.
The engine displacement would be 250 cc but further details are scarce as of now. We expect the liquid-cooled fuel-injected motor to adopt a parallel twin layout and offer an output in the vicinity of 45 PS. A 6-speed transmission would harness the power.
The global compact motorcycle would cater to A2 license holders in Europe. Apart from the Honda’s new quarter litre warrior, the new Suzuki GSX-R250 will face competition from the likes of Yamaha R25/R3 (depending on the market), Kawasaki Ninja 300, KTM RC390 and so on.
