Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP launch has been confirmed for August. This is apart from the naked Gixxer 250 which is on the cards as well…
Suzuki today officially launched the Gixxer SF MotoGP edition in India. You can check out its price and pics in this story. Apart from that, in the same press release, the Japs have announced that they are making a MotoGP version of the sibling SF 250 as well.
Quite obviously the Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP will come with the racing blue colour theme of their MotoGP motorcycle but what differences will it have with the 150 are not known since there are no pics that they have shared.
However, Suzuki has confirmed that Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP will continue with the same 249 cc, SOCS (Suzuki Oil Cooling System), single cylinder, four stroke, SOHC engine which is capable of producing 26.5 PS of peak power at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of max torque at 7500 rpm – which means no mechanical changes!

Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP will be in addition to the currently available colours – silver and black. Considering that there has been a price hike of roughly Rs 700 on the 150 cc sibling, the 250 MotoGP is also expected not to cost more than Rs 1000 over the standard edition.
Suzuki has decided to focus only on the premium segment and is the only major two-wheeler maker in India to have shown growth in the last month of June 2019 (here are the numbers). They have recently revamped their Gixxer lineup and up next is the naked Gixxer 250 – spy pics of which you can see here.
