As expected, Suzuki Motorcycle India will soon introduce the naked roadster version of its recently launched Gixxer SF 250. At the launch event, the company officials confirmed that Gixxer 250 Street Fighter will arrive in the coming months, most probably in the festive season around Navratri or Diwali. The upcoming 250cc naked motorcycle will share its underpinnings and mechanical specifications with the full-faired version of the bike.
The ‘SRK Designs’ recently revealed the concept for the Gixxer 250 which shows that this model will feature the same chassis, hardware, and engine specifications as Gixxer SF 250. As seen in the rendered image, the front end features an aggressive-looking full LED headlight similar to that of the Gixxer SF 250. The headlight has a body-coloured mask and a small plastic visor occupying the space above it.
Though the cockpit of the street fighter will pack the same instrument console as the full-faired version but instead of a clip-on style handlebar, the naked model of the Gixxer SF 250 is most likely to feature a flat, single piece unit for a more upright riding position, and better city-friendly ergonomics.
The fuel tank of the motorcycle features a pair of shrouds on either side to enhance the muscular looks, while the engine cowl adds to the sporty persona of the quarter-litre motorcycle. The Gixxer 250 Street Fighter will be priced at least INR 15,000 less than the full-faired version of the bike, which is available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.71 lakh.
