Just like its non-faired roadster sibling, the Suzuki Gixxer 155 SF impressed us mightily. But Suzuki has even more interesting plans lined up for us. Suzuki has been working on a quarter-litre variants of the Gixxer 155 and the Gixxer SF motorcycles. In fact, if recent reports are to be believed, Suzuki is likely to unveil a 250cc naked roadster, reportedly under the Gixxer nomenclature at the 2016 Auto Expo while a fully faired version, expected to be named as the Gixxer 250SF or GSX-R250, will follow it soon.
While we are yet to hear any official information about these motorcycles, an international magazine named Young Machine has imagined the fully faired quarter-litre Gixxer/GSX-R and released a render that, we really hope, is seen by Suzuki designers. The rendered motorcycle borrows its shape from the current generation fully faired Gixxer SF, but, jewels up the entire setup with a pair of futuristic LED headlights, clip-on handlebars, a relatively large disc brake oil reservoir, a slightly larger and more muscular fuel tank and a much sporty step-up split seat.
The 150cc Suzuki Gixxer SF
This new motorcycle is expected to be powered by a 250cc single cylinder motor which will compete against the much appreciated and highly successful KTM Duke 200 and upcoming motorcycles such as the new Honda CBR250R/CBR300R, the Hyosung GD250 and the Mahindra Mojo (if it ever arrives). The new 250cc Suzuki is expected to deliver about 28PS of power and is likely to come mated to a 6-speed transmission. The single cylinder engine will also enable Suzuki to price this upcoming quarter-litre competitively.
We absolutely love this render and really hope that the production motorcycle borrows some design elements from the rendered image. Do you agree with us? Share your views with us through the comments section below.
