New 2021 GSX250R is offered only in the ABS trim. Chances are that the non-ABS model may have been discontinued…
Suzuki has officially unveiled its 2021 motorcycle line-up which also comprises the quarter liter full faired sporster GSX 250R. On its product page for the 2021 range, it has listed only the ABS variant and the non-ABS trim (which is listed under the 2020 tab) is not present. Chances are that Suzuki may have decided to continue with the ABS variant only – probably because of regulations or some other factors.
The new model gets fresher two tone Pearl Glacier White and Pearl Nebular Black color scheme for this year. And that appears to be the only change to the quarter liter model. The new version costs $4,949 in USA which is $50 more than the outgoing variant.
The baby GSX is equipped with a liquid cooled, SOHC, parallel twin, 248cc engine which is the same unit that we had on the Inazuma. It is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. Suzuki says the motor is refined and focus is on the low and mid range for ease of control.
In terms of features, the 250R gets a reverse-lit LCD instrumentation, KYB suspension, 5-way adjustable front brake lever, etc. It weighs 181 kilos and has a fuel tank capacity of 15 liters.
Apart from the easy engine, the saddle height is also 790 mm and the motorcycle comes with a 12 month unlimited mileage warranty. Suzuki has never sold this motorcycle in India since its tryst with the Inazuma was not really fruitful. Instead, it launched the India-specific single cylinder Gixxer 250 range here which is gradually picking pace. You can read its review here.
