New Suzuki Motorcycle Officially Teased; India Launch on May 20

The official invite you see here clearly hints at a new Suzuki motorcycle, most probably being the Gixxer series product with full-faired character lines. As per the teaser image, the new bike will launch in India on May 20, 2019. The reflection that shines bright in the teaser image could be the headlight design while the flowing line seems to be the part of the top side fairing as seen in most of the full-faired Suzuki motorcycles.

The best part here is that Suzuki could launch the new Gixxer 250 SF in India as a totally unique product or if not that, the model could also be the updated version of the Gixxer SF. The current-gen 155cc model is available for an ex-showroom price tag of under INR 1 lakh, and it seems to be facing a lot of problems with the downfall in sales number. The last sales figure posted by the brand was 460 units for March 2019, including both the naked and faired versions.

The new Suzuki motorcycle has the least chances of being a streetfighter as the panel crease seen in the left half is exclusive to the faired products. One such example is the Suzuki GSX-S1000F, having a similar reflective front headlight section, and a side panel moving into the direction of the fuel tank. As the litre-class motorcycle has been discontinued in India for being non-effective, the same design lines can be used on the upcoming all-new quarter-litre Suzuki motorcycle to rival the current-gen Honda CBR250R and the Yamaha Fazer 25.

Another high chance of bringing a dual headlight design to the 2019 Gixxer SF 155 is also prevailing, with the brand already clearing the fact that the 150cc Gixxer series is in desperate need of an upgrade. Suzuki was earlier expected to launch all the bikes in such an order that mass-market is targeted first but, after the release of the latest teaser image, it seems like they will try creating a niche for themselves by keeping scooters under INR 1 lakh and taking their motorcycles to a higher level. The 150cc Gixxer series will fall between INR 90,000-1,00,000 segment while the Suzuki Gixxer 250 series is expected to fall between INR 1.35-1.50 lakh for the streetfighter and faired options.
