Suzuki GSX-250R Officially Unveiled in China

Suzuki’s most awaited quarter liter motorcycle has been finally unveiled at a press conference in China. The motorcycle is termed GSX-250R and looks amazing in its liter class rivaling design. However, the saddest part comes out to be its engine, shared with the Inazuma and producing figures which can put itself to shame on its design behalf. The 248cc, twin cylinder engine produces just 24.7 Bhp at 8,000 rpm and 23.3 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The values are too close to the single cylinder Honda CBR250R being sold in India currently.

The motorcycle seems to be a relaxed rider while the segment competition namely Ninja 250/300 and Yamaha R25/R3 are not going to spare it for that simple reason with their highly powered engines. Visually, it uses the same 140 section tyre from Indian Gixxer while the instrument console even looks the same but feels different with Black background and added features like real time fuel consumption and oil change reminder.

Suzuki GSX-250R measures 2085 mm in length, 740 mm in width and 1110 mm in height. It uses a 6-speed gearbox and misses out on important technologies like slipper clutch or LED front headlights. The seat height stays good at 780 mm. The motorcycle uses a 290 mm, twin piston caliper disc brake at the front while rear is 240 mm disc.

ABS has been offered as optional on the motorcycle. Weighing 178 kg, it becomes even slower as the competition measures around 160-170 kg. It carries a 15 liter fuel tank. Further disappointment comes when the pricing is expected to stay around INR 3 lakhs, a bit below the Yamaha R3 for the Indian market. As of now, Suzuki has not announced anything regarding the launch of GSX250R in India. If launched, it would be competing with the Kawasaki  Ninja 300, Yamaha YZF-R3, and Hysoung GT250R in India.
