What you see in the images are the leaked patents of the upcoming Haojue HJ300-A roadster that is currently under development. Why is it related to Suzuki? Because the Chinese firm which is developing the aforementioned motorcycle is Suzuki’s partner in the country and is responsible for the production of GW250 and the new GSX-250R which are then exported to select international markets. While the Haojue HJ300-A will be sold only in the Chinese market, reports suggest that Suzuki will sell a near identical product under its banner, and call it the GSX-S300.

As seen in the patent images, the motorcycle gets a muscular design and premium hardware such as upside-down telescopic front forks, LED blinkers and what appears to be a full LED headlight. Stopping power is provided by disc brakes on both ends while the safety net is enhance by ABS. Surprisingly, steering duties are performed by a clip-on handlebar instead of a flat, singlepiece handlebar that’s usually seen on roadster motorcycles. Saddle is a split, step-up seat unit that adds to the sporty visuals of the motorcycle. Other bits will most likely include

Mechanical specifications are scarce although it appears that the motorcycle uses a parallel-twin unit that reminds of Suzuki’s existing quarter-litre motor which powers the likes of GW250, DL250 V-Strom and the GSX-250R. The engine may also use four valves per cylinder. Given that the China spec motorcycle has been christened HJ300-A, the displacement should be 299cc.

As aforementioned, the details about the upcoming motorcycle are scarce although we’d get a clear picture once the China bound Haojue HJ300-A is official unveiled. Will it also arrive in India? The chances are scarce although we’d keep our fingers crossed!
