Gixxer SF 250 sales for the first month are out and Suzuki has a reason to cheer. The spied naked version is also coming to add to these numbers…
After a long wait Suzuki finally launched the Gixxer 250 in India last month. May was also its first month of dispatch and according to the official SIAM data, Suzuki wholesaled as many as 1526 units of the motorcycle. This number is higher than a lot of near 1.70 Lakh priced motorcycles like Himalayan (1192 units), Duke 250 (681 units) etc.

But more importantly, it outsold its prime rivals – Honda CBR 250R (54 units), Yamaha FZ25 and Fazer 25 (910 units) in the quarter liter segment. On the other hand, many motorcycles around this price segment like Dominar 400 (1888 units), Duke 200 (2246 units) and the Classic 350 registered higher sales.
Suzuki has commenced customer deliveries of the motorcycles from early June onwards and is also preparing the naked version based on the same platform. We have shared its exclusive spy pictures a few days back (here). The naked Gixxer 250 is expected to be priced at around Rs 1.50 Lakh ex-showroom and should definitely help the Jap to gain more traction in this segment.
Both the 250cc Gixxers will be powered by the newly developed 249 cc, oil cooled SOHC engine which can produce 26.5 PS of peak power at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of max torque at 7500 rpm.
The 150cc Gixxer SF has also gained the same new look and it has also enhanced Suzuki’s tally in its segment from 410 units sold in April 2019 to 3391 units last month of May.
