We reported in detail when the first units of the Suzuki Inazuma GW250 were dispatched to dealerships earlier this month. The upcoming bike has been spotted on our streets on a couple of occasions since then will formally enter Indian bike market on January 27 . The launch even will take place in Mumbai and present at the launch event will be Suzuki Motorcycles India Limited’s brand ambassador Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
Now, in a report by the good chaps at Indian Autos Blog, it is mentioned that the Suzuki Inazuma will go on sale in India at a stratospheric price of INR 3.13 lakhs (ex-Showroom, New Delhi)! This simply means that the bike will cost around INR 3.50 lakhs on road! At this price, the bike will be considerably pricier than both the Honda CBR250R and the KTM 390 Duke, which is basically the latest sensation in the Indian performance bike market.
The pre-bookings for the bike are underway and the bike can be booked for INR 10,000. Deliveries commence on the day of launch.
Powering the Suzuki Inazuma GW250 is a fuel-injected, parallel twin, 250cc engine that has a max power of 26 bhp and peak torque of 24.4 Nm! The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the bike boasts of a semi double-cradle chassis, telescopic front forks, and a seven way adjustable rear mono-shock. The bike will come with disc brakes at both front and rear.
It doesn’t take a genius guess that at INR 3.13 lakhs, the Inazuma won’t win any price/bhp wars in India. Also, with a styling like that, it won’t win any beauty contests either.
Hence, it would be really interesting to know what Suzuki India has exactly planned for the upcoming quarter litre bike. What do you feel? Will the new Suzuki Inazuma GW250 capture the imagination of Indian bike buying lot? Do let us know by commenting below.
