Suzuki twin 250cc engine will likely be updated to Euro 5 emission norms according to a new revelation. India tasted it with Inazuma…
Apart from the newly launched single cylinder 250cc engine, Suzuki has been selling its twin cylinder 250cc motor in the world for a long time now. We have had a brush with this SOHC parallel twin engine when Suzuki introduced the Inazuma in India for a brief period.
Though not high on specs, it is one of the most relaxed engines and Inazuma owners vouch for its fuss free nature. The same motor is also deployed on sports motorcycle GSX-250R and adventure tourer V-Strom 250. Suzuki has already announced the Bharat Stage 6 update (which is roughly similar to the international Euro 5 emission norms) for its 250cc single and the Gixxer 250s are going to few international markets.
And it is now time for a revelation on the company’s 250cc twin. New patent documents that have surfaced online suggest that the Inazuma’s engine is getting an additional catalyst positioned closer to the exhaust ports. There are two oxygen sensors that are placed to measure the exhaust gases before and after the catcon. Based on the signals received by the duo, the engine control unit can adjust the fuel injection for an optimum air-fuel ratio.
This also suggests that most or all of these motorcycles based on this engine will live in the Euro 5 emission norm era. Here in India, Suzuki has tasted waters with its Inazuma which was liquidated at hefty discounted prices. And hence, chances are that we may not get this engine (and these motorcycles) again!
