Suzuki Gixxer 250 specs have also been busted and the quarter liter produces 26.5 PS of power…
As we had anticipated, the Gixxer 250 has finally been leaked from the sides in a brochure scan by DCV. Along with that, the specs of the motorcycle have also been made public before Suzuki would have wanted the world to see.
In terms of design, it definitely is sportier and most of the bits we have shared earlier turn out to be true. This is the grey colour on offer; the rear view mirrors are rightfully mounted on the fairing (on the new Hero Xtreme 200S they are, for some weird reason, placed on the handlebar!); it gets regular telescopic shock absorbers, comes with 10-spoke alloy wheels and a tyre hugger.
Gixxer 250 Specs
In terms of specs, Gixxer 250 SF will be powered by a 4-stroke, 249cc, single cylinder, SOHC engine which is oil-cooled. It produces 26.5 PS of peak power at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of max torque at 7500 rpm. Fuel is fed via fuel injector and the motor is paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
Tyres, as we had guessed earlier, are 110 mm and 150 mm wide (front and rear respectively) – the same spec as Dominar, Dukes etc. Gixxer 250 will have a seat height of 800 mm, a kerb weight of 161 kilograms and a fuel tank capacity of 12 liters. ABS is clearly mentioned on the motorcycle and we believe it will be a proper dual channel unit.
Now the next question is – how much will you pay for it? Honda charges a premium for its CBR 250R for similar specs, but we believe Suzuki should be a little more cautious in pricing. Considering that there will be part sharing with the 150cc siblings (and hence economies of scale), we expect the Gixxer 250 to cost about Rs 1.50-1.60 Lakh ex-showroom. This being a India-spec model, designed for our market predominantly, also helps us in our evaluation.
The exact revelation on the price will be revealed on the 20th May when this model gets launched. How does it ride will be known the following day…
