As the launch date of Suzuki’s new quarter-litre machine comes closer and closer, we keep getting more and more information about the motorcycle through an anonymous tip. This time around, we have come to know that this upcoming Gixxer 250 will be offered with a BS – VI compliant motor, adhering to the upcoming emission norms set by the government of India. This engine, a single cylinder, fuel injected, 250 cc, 4-valve per cylinder, oil-cooled motor will generate around 26.5 hp of peak power. Scheduled to be launched on the 20th may, this motorcycle will be the flagship model in the Gixxer family, which comprises the Gixxer 155 and Gixxer 155 SF motorcycles.
To be sold only in a faired avatar, just like the Gixxer 155, the Gixxer 250 too will come with a double barrel exhaust with chrome treatment over it. The shiny substance will also be present on other parts of the motorcycle too. Talking about the wheels, the Gixxer 250 will come with 10-spoke alloys with a sporty tyre hugger at the rear. The looks will get enhanced sportiness with a split seat for the pillion and a clip-on type handlebar, which will keep the rider tucked in and help cut right through the air.
As we have mentioned earlier, this motorcycle will come with 3 colour options – grey, silver and blue. Our source further tells us that the shade of grey would be the same as we have seen in the MY 2019 Hayabusa superbike. Just like the trend is nowadays, the bike will come with an all-digital instrument console and shall also offer dual-channel ABS as standard. Also worth waiting for is the kind of suspension setup Suzuki will offer. While an inverted fork setup is definitely the better option, the Japanese bike maker may offer a conventional telescopic set up to keep the price competitive. With just a few days left for the launch, it is not too long before we find an answer to these questions, stay tuned.
