Suzuki has been rising since its Gixxer 155 launch in India, as it becomes the first hot seller motorcycle for its Indian 2 wheeler market. Followed by its highly appreciated performance and style, Suzuki introduced a faired version of the 155, named as Gixxer SF. Both the bikes share some common frame and all other mechanical values, with SF making just 4 kg above the naked one. The rumour about a new 250 cc model has been heard, making way for a much better and improved lightweight street fighter from Suzuki.
The Gixxer 250 is said to be based on a new frame, making it a lightweight and much more efficient offering from the company. It will resemble its lower version but will have everything a step ahead from the former champion. The engine is expected to be a liquid cooled unit, producing expected 26-28 BHP and 23-25 NM of torque. The unit is also expected to be fuel injected, leading to a better performance and fuel efficiency. The bike will surely get a more muscular appeal from the existing version, with wider tyres and a bigger fuel tank.
Safety on the bike is expected to be enhanced from the current values. Gixxer 250 is expected to come with a disc brake for the rear tyre also, which was missing from its 155 cc cousin. The optional ABS is also one of the most awaited features, making way for a more safe and relaxing journey with a Gixxer. The transmission on the new Gixxer 250 will have one additional gear than the current one. The 6-speed will enhance its performance and refinement, side by side maintaining a better value in terms of mileage.
The Indian market has focused more on the lightweight performers as they are not just easy to own, even the maintenance values are much lower when compared to the middle weight category. The Gixxer 250 is expected in more colors and a much refined overall values. The price we expect for the machine is INR 1,50,000 and as per the latest buzz, it is going to be officially unleashed @ 2016 Auto Expo in February in Noida.
