Finally, the spy pics of the upcoming Suzuki Gixxer 250 street fighter have surfaced online. ‘Bike Advice’ has managed to leak a couple of photos which reveal some of the key details for the bike. The naked Gixxer 250 carries the same alloy wheel plus tyre setup and the bike is also expected to feature the same braking unit including the double channel ABS like the Gixxer SF 250. But there is one minor change, the street fighter version does get rim stripes which add on to its sporty look along with black coloured mudguard.

The bike will also come with a body-coloured underbelly engine guard as well as tank extensions which displays the ‘Gixxer 250’ moniker. The side top-view for the bike showcases a silver stripe on the fuel tank while you can also spot the knuckle guards, which are mounted on a standard rod-type handlebar. For a relaxed seating posture, the handlebar has been slightly raised on the naked Gixxer 250. The cockpit of the naked variant will feature the same all-digital instrument cluster and as the bike has no fairing, the rear-view mirrors are mounted on the handlebar.

Mechanically, the bike will be powered by the same 249cc, oil-cooled, SOHC motor which produces 26.5 HP of power at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 7500 rpm. We can expect the naked Gixxer 250 to be priced around INR 15,000 less than its full-faired version which is available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.71 lakh.

The launch of a 250cc Suzuki streetfighter will turn true this year. Suzuki Gixxer 250 is expected to be launched in India around Diwali in October 2019. As of now, no test mule has been spotted testing on the Indian roads. Earlier, the motorcycle was expected to launch by mid-2019, but that slot later went into the hands of the Gixxer SF 250. The new 250cc Suzuki motorcycle was earlier expected to be based on the Haojue DR300 in terms of the overall design and looks but now, you can expect the fairing of the SF 250 to transform into a tank extension.

It won’t be wrong to assume that Suzuki is following Yamaha’s trick of launching a product that is powerful, affordable, and unmistakably fan-focused. The upcoming motorcycle has more chances of resembling a litre-class street machine as every manufacturer follows the same trend of first launching a powerful litre-class motorcycle and then taking design hints for the regular model.

Suzuki Gixxer SF 250
Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 was Recently Launched at INR 1.71 lakh in India

Expected pricing for the Suzuki Gixxer 250 falls around INR 1.55 lakh, leaving chances for 10% reduction in price if they plan to place their product around Yamaha FZ25 in terms of ex-showroom price. At present, the 2019 model of FZ25 with 2-channel ABS is available for INR 1.34 lakh.

As Suzuki has launched the SF 250 with a 2-channel ABS unit, the upcoming Gixxer 250 will also bring the safety feature as standard. The Indian government has also made it mandatory for all 125cc+ motorcycles to be equipped with ABS. Starting from 1st April this year, no 2-wheeler brand can sell a 125cc+ bike or scooter without anti-lock braking system.

Suzuki Katana R is the dark variant of the standard version, seen through this neat rendering from Young Machine. The variant will be nothing less than an overhaul as the reports doing rounds on the internet also claims that Suzuki will use a larger 1135cc engine as the rebored version of the current litre-class motor.

Imagined in a dark shade with carbon fiber as the primary material for certain components, the Katana R could serve as the most powerful machine of its kind. The front suspension may now feature fully adjustable forks while the rear end could feature Ohlins monoshock. Not just that, the braking components will also improve to take on the extra power.

Suzuki Katana has no direct rival and the design exclusivity further makes it unbeatable for those who are not into naked or faired motorcycle department. The design will grow sharper than ever, featuring a lightweight exhaust and clip-on bars for the Katana R version. Suzuki could use carbon fiber wheels to reduce the overall unsprung weight but like the affordable nature of Katana, R variant will not be focused on bulk buying potential. Called as Super Katana by many reports, the motorcycle may feature more aerodynamically-suitable features like winglets and a larger visor.

The Standard Model of Suzuki Katana

Suzuki Katana is powered by a litre-class, four-cylinder engine, producing 150 HP of maximum power and 106 Nm of torque. It weighs 215kg with all the standard parts and one can expect a big drop in the kerb weight for the R variant. The glass sparkle black shade on the bike looks awesome while Katana R may feature matt black base shade for better than ever aggression.

The motorcycle may feature for the first time at EICMA 2019 and sale could start from existing markets like the UK and Japan. The Indian market may not get the Katana R in the first go as Suzuki is yet to launch the standard version in the country.

Suzuki fans are still waiting for the mighty GSX-R150 in India, getting no other option than the Gixxer SF to fulfil their faired bike needs in the country. On the other hand, Decal46 from Vietnam has modified the lightweight racer into an even more sharp machine than before.

The design takes inspiration from the Ninja H2 at one point, leaving all other bits exclusive to the face kit used by the modifier. The front now comes with a unique fairing, dividing the headlight into two sections and creating an illusion of a centre projector unit through the custom piece of the fairing.

Not just that, the sides now feature sharp extensions that cover some section of the headlight from the side view. The visor used here is more prominent, all thanks to the division of the wide headlight and black tint by the customizer.

The indicators that were pointing out of the fairing are now beautifully studded at the same space, leaving no empty space on the side profile of the motorcycle. The entire body is finished in a white and blue theme, with the front section carrying a majority of white finish with blue inserts and vice versa. The fender section on both ends stays black.

The motorcycle also comes with a custom Akrapovic exhaust that looks a lot better than the black unit seen on the stock model of the Suzuki GSX-R150. The motorcycle can also be seen with a custom rear two-piece grab rail with the black finish. The disc brakes are still thinner than usual, especially the rear one that looks almost of the same size as chain sprocket.

Decal46 has used a carbon fiber finish on certain elements, adding more race-friendly feel to the bike at some of the most prominent positions. The engine used here is the same 147.3cc, single-cylinder unit, producing 18.90 BHP of maximum power and 14 Nm of maximum torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. As of now, Suzuki has no plans to launch the GSX-R150 in India.

Suzuki recently introduced its Gixxer SF 250 in the Indian market and the company is also planning to launch its naked version in the coming months. As per the latest rumours, the company will also be working on a 250cc cruiser motorcycle that will share its mechanical specifications with the newly launched Gixxer SF 250. A source report claims that the upcoming quarter-litre motorcycle will be known as Suzuki Intruder 250.

The ‘SRK Designs’ recently created a rendered image of the motorcycle that shows what it could look like. The rendering of the bike reveals that it shares its looks with its 155cc younger sibling. However, the upcoming Intruder 250 will come in a pack with a revised list of features that will include a full LED headlight, a revised shape for the exhaust, more comfortable seats, and a better instrument console.

The exhaust of the bike in the rendered image looks like the one that is there in the Gixxer SF 250. Previously, Suzuki didn’t have a 250cc engine for India but with the launch of the SF 250, the brand now has an opportunity to use the same engine in their upcoming 250cc products for the Indian market.

The fully-faired Gixxer SF 250 comes with a 249cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected, oil-cooled, 4-valve engine that produces 26.5HP of maximum power at 9000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 7500 rpm. The engine comes mated with a six-speed gearbox. The Intruder 250 will get the same engine but it is expected that the brand will tune it to make it more suitable to meet the requirements of a cruiser motorcycle.

Coming to other specifications of the cruiser model, we can expect it to come with conventional telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. For safety purposes, the bike will come featured with front and rear disc brakes along with a dual-channel ABS unit.

Though Gixxer SF 250 is not BSVI compliant, the cruiser model is expected to arrive with the latest emission norms. Also, the company could reveal the bike at the Auto Expo in February 2020, and deliveries of the bike can be commenced around April 2020. The Intruder 250 is expected to be priced around INR 1.80-1.90 lakh (ex-showroom).

TVS Apache RR 310 vs Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 (Quick Comparison): Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is an indirect rival to the new TVS Apache RR 310. The latter now comes with a race-tuned slipper clutch for the 2019 variant and thus, costs INR 3000 higher than the older price tag. Suzuki is using an oil-cooled 249cc, single cylinder engine producing 26.5 HP and 22.6 Nm while TVS offers a 312.2cc, single cylinder liquid-cooled engine producing 34 HP and 27.2 Nm.

The difference of more than 60cc in displacement means Apache RR310 is undoubtedly more powerful and Gixxer SF may only be preferred by fans who wish to save some money. The bikes are available with dual channel ABS and even tires remain similar to each other for the 2019 Apache RR310 and Gixxer SF 250.

Suzuki recently launched the much-awaited Gixxer SF250 in India.

5 Must-Know Facts About Gixxer SF250

1) Design & Style

Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is getting the advantage of a very dedicated sportbike design, with fuel tank getting the desired chiselling for the perfect street presence factor. The rear looks light while front flaunts a compact visor along with both horizontal and vertical expanding headlight. The tires are thick enough to help the motorcycle with equal lower half bulk. The exhaust comes with a familiar design from the side look but in reality, the exits are now squared.

2) Engine & Specifications

The motorcycle is powered by a 249cc, single cylinder oil cooled SOHC engine with lightweight parts and construction. The overall output is 26.5 HP and 22.6 Nm, making the 161 kg motorcycle technically more powerful than the Honda CBR250R in terms of power-to-weight ratio. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The motorcycle comes with dual-channel ABS, full LED headlight, an LED taillight, Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS), Suzuki easy start system, clip-on handlebars, and sporty front suspension setup. The front and rear tires are 110 and 150-section in width while the 6-speed gearbox offers a smooth overall riding experience.

4) Instrument Console

The compact yet highly practical all-digital instrument console offers a blue backlit display with white coloured values and loads of information. The speedometer, gear indicator, fuel gauge, tachometer, and digital clock are easy to read and good for even bright daylight conditions.

5) Rivals & Pricing

The price tag of INR 1.71 lakh for the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 confirms that the brand took both Yamaha Fazer (INR 1.43 lakh) and Honda CBR250R (INR 1.95 lakh) into consideration. The former is very lightweight and restricted in terms of power while the latter commands a higher specification in terms of engine. Suzuki balanced the same with their product placement.

2019 Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 are now official for Indonesia. The new GSX-R150 is available with ABS as an option while the Indonesian government has not yet made the safety feature compulsory. The naked variant has not received the ABS safety through this 2019 year update. The visual difference in the older and 2019 models include sticker changes and availability of different shades.

The engine powering both the bikes is the same 147.3cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected unit, producing 18.9 HP and 14 Nm. The six-speed gearbox ensures that the power delivery would be class-leading while the lightweight frame and body further improve performance. The models are Indonesia specific as India recently got the new Gixxer SF 150 with a new design and refined engine.

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.

Suzuki India recently revealed that the brand will be focusing only on the higher displacement motorcycles and will be staying away from the commuter motorcycle segment in the future. This announcement makes Suzuki the second two-wheeler brand in India after Yamaha to take this decision. The company’s shrinking market share in the commuter motorcycle segment has forced it to concentrate majorly on the 150cc+ motorcycles with the price tags ranging above INR 1 lakh.

Devashish Handa, Vice President, Suzuki India, confirmed that the company will focus only on motorcycles with an engine bigger than 150cc. He commented in a statement to Times of India: “As part of our clear cut new product strategy, all our new motorcycle introductions will be greater than 150cc displacement starting from Gixxer SF 250 onwards. All new product introductions will be higher than this category and we do not intend to be in the commuter part of the market at all. We would like to satisfy the aspirational and passion need of the customer instead of functional needs.”

The company also plans on launching the highly-anticipated Gixxer 250 naked roadster in the coming months (around Diwali), as confirmed at the launch of the Gixxer SF 250 and the 2019 Gixxer SF 150. Some reports also suggest that the brand is also working on a quarter-litre Intruder cruiser motorcycle with the official launch expected to happen at the Auto Expo in February 2020.

With the upcoming products, the brand plans to compete in the market with the likes of Yamaha Fazer 25 and the Bajaj Pulsar 220F. Commenting on it, Mr Devashish Handa added:In the short term (this year and next) we would be targeting the sports motorcycle category to customers who want another option from say a Bajaj Pulsar 220F or a Yamaha Fazer 25. We are looking at a customer who is young and urban because, in terms of network, 50% of our 500 dealerships are in metro or tier 1 cities.”

Commenting on their expansion in the scooter market, the brand stated: “All our introductions will be higher up the value chain. Going ahead, we will introduce two products every year in scooters and bikes and all these will be upwards of where we are now in terms of engine displacements.”
