Regulars here would remember that we have reported a fair bit about the Suzuki Inazuma aka GW250. The 250cc bike from Suzuki is already on sale in well developed bike markets such as that of the USA and seems to be a well sorted out bike.
The cyber space is already full of speculations regarding the India launch of the Suzuki Inazuma and there are several reports which suggest that the bike could be launched as early as in festive season this year. Just when we were about to add a fistful of salt to all these rumours, a pic of the Inazuma being ridden on Indian roads have surfaced on the web world. In this pic, bollywood star Salman Khan can be seen riding the bike and it seems like the bike would make its first Indian appearance in an upcoming bolly flick (Sallu starrer ‘Mental’?). It may be noted that Suzuki India unveiled its Hayate commuter motorcycle in a bollywood movie starring brand ambassador Salman Khan.
While the Indian subsidiary of Suzuki haven’t yet revealed any details of its plans of launching the Inazuma/GW250 in India, it won’t be too wrong to guess that the bike is near to stepping into the Indian bike market. It seems like the decision by many bike makers present in India to launch their entry level sportsbikes have compelled the boffins at Suzuki India to formulate a plan to introduce the GW250 in our bike market.
The 2013 Suzuki Inazuma is powered by a 248cc, SOHC, twin cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that delivers a max power output of 26Bhp and a peak torque figure of 24.2Nm.The engine is mated to a six speed manual gearbox.
The 2013 Suzuki GW250 tips the scales at 182 kgs and has a max fuel tank capacity of 3.5 gallons.
The Suzuki Inazuma comes with disc brakes at both the wheels and the bike borrows several design cues from the much hyped Suzuki B-King. The upcoming naked 250cc bike from Suzuki will battle it out against the Honda CBR250R and the upcoming Mahindra Mojo.
