Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd today launched new liveries for Gixxer 250 and Gixxer series. The Company introduced Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 in New Triton Blue/Silver colour option to commemorate Suzuki’s Global 100th anniversary. The retro-inspired livery with the traditional blue and slate silver colour scheme will pay homage to Suzuki’s early Grand Prix machines of the 1960s. Enthusiasts have one more reason to rejoice as Suzuki Motorcycle India also launched the Gixxer 250 in Metallic Triton Blue with Suzuki racing graphics.
In the Gixxer series- Gixxer SF and Gixxer, both motorcycles will now be relaunched with a new big Gixxer graphic to make it look sportier.
The customers will now also be able to opt for Pearl Mira Red colour, in Gixxer series, and Metallic Triton Blue colour in Suzuki Gixxer. Both colours have been newly added to the existing colour range of the motorcycles.
Mr Koichiro Hirao, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India, said, “We are delighted to launch the new liveries for our Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Gixxer series. The 100th year anniversary Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 in the new Triton Blue/Silver will resemble the 2020 Suzuki Moto GP machine displaying the brand’s racing DNA and making it an apt choice for the enthusiasts. There has been a lot of queries that came our way to inquire about the launch of Triton Blue/Silver- Gixxer SF 250 after Moto GP 2020 was resumed from last July. As you all are aware, Gixxer 250 was displayed at the auto expo in Metallic Triton Blue colour and post gauging the positive response of the consumers, we decided to go ahead with the launch in India. The thought process behind launching new big Gixxer graphic in Gixxer SF and Gixxer models is to give more attractive and identical options to the customer while buying the motorcycle.”
