Suzuki Gixxer 250 will soon be a real-world moniker. The rumours doing rounds on the internet about the launch of a 250cc Suzuki motorcycle will turn true this year. Gixxer 250, the most probable name for this product, is expected to be unveiled at a dealer meeting this month and the motorcycle is expected to launch by March 2019. 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.

Suzuki Gixxer 250

The upcoming motorcycle has more chances of resembling a street machine as every manufacturer follows the same trend of first launching a street-fighter and then, a faired version with a majority of shared parts. Also, the recent launch of GSX-S750 in India can help buyers relate the quarter-litre machine with that value for money superbike. Expected pricing for the Gixxer 250 will fall around INR 1.50 lakh, leaving chances for 10% reduction in price if they plan to undercut Yamaha FZ25 in ex-showroom price. As Yamaha will also add ABS to the FZ25, launching the new Gixxer 250 will need the safety feature available as standard.

Suzuki Gixxer 250

The direction will result in a price increase of minimum INR 12,000 in Yamaha FZ25. On the other hand, Suzuki Gixxer 155 and Yamaha FZ, have a price difference of INR 4000 in their base variants. That gap may not stay in Gixxer 250 as fuel injection is expected to be a standard feature. Fans can expect 22-24HP of maximum power, air+oil cooled engine, and 5-speed gearbox on the new Gixxer as cost-cutting will remain their primary purpose to get a firm hold on the quarter-litre market. The winning situation is highly dependent on motorcycle design as buyers get very specific around this segment for sharp designs and more power per kilogram of the motorcycle’s weight.

2020 Suzuki Hayabusa was recently seen in an impressive render by Young Machine. The image looks really impressive as the new Hayabusa looks more streamlined in comparison to the present version. If this comes out close to the real version, Suzuki has a clear winner on its side. The front fascia seen here comes with sharper design and carries equipment like LED stripe going through the middle of the air scoops and headlight. They have kept the headlight in the same design language while its internal section seems to be divided into two blocks.

The side profile would be even sharpened for the 2020 look, losing all those curves that were seen from every angle on the present generation motorcycle. It gets itself a new exhaust and flaunts its front USD forks as well as brake callipers with proud. Suzuki will retain the massive dimensions of the motorcycle as it improves its road presence. It will now look more like the litre class GSX-R1000. The rear end is seen with a familiar seat cowl while the body seems thin in the centre section. The exhaust design is all new, definitely helping them reduce some weight and follow the now applicable Euro-5 norms. Not just that, the new Hayabusa could be a Euro-6 compliant motorcycle.

Suzuki will shed some weight from the bulky racer, helping it claim a better spot against the closest rival, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. Suzuki even recently patented turbocharged hybrid technology for litre class motorcycles, hinting at an even powerful comeback for the new Hayabusa. The current generation is powered by 1340 cc, 4-cylinder engine producing 200 HP at 9500 rpm and 155 Nm at 7200 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and weighs quite high at 266 kg. It currently claims a top speed of 312 kph with the removal of the speed limiter.

Suzuki recently launched 2 new shades for the current-gen Hayabusa in India, it is presently available with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 13.74 lakh. The 2020 model is expected to be revealed at the EICMA in November 2019.

KTM 125 Duke vs Suzuki Gixxer SF (Drag Race): KTM 125 Duke can be seen sprinting with Suzuki Gixxer SF in this video by Rough Rider Azam. The initial acceleration by Gixxer SF was really impressive as the motorcycle gained a lead over the 125cc Duke in a matter of few seconds. The things changed once the Duke started gaining some speed, clearly overtaking the Gixxer SF in triple-digit range and winning with a decent margin. However, the speedometer error on the Gixxer SF showed that it is faster than the Duke 125, even when it was struggling to keep up with the premium streetfighter.

The error became visible once both the riders passed the 120 kph mark. KTM 125 Duke is priced much higher in comparison to the Gixxer SF but power output is better on the affordable version. The fully-faired motorcycle is not just cost-effective but also features impressive shades that look awesome on the faired body while changes on the Duke are limited to the fuel tank only. Here is a complete comparison for both the bikes in this drag race.

India’s first 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa was delivered to Mr Kaif Dosani and Mr Ameen Dosani in Mumbai on Jan 1, 2019. The shade selected was Metallic Oort Grey while unboxing of the motorcycle brought smiles on the faces of confused buyers who thought Hayabusa was under the discontinued list of products. The availability of Hayabusa will be limited to a specific number of units as the Japanese brand has earlier cleared that no Hayabusa will be manufactured after 31 Dec 2018. However, the parts may be available in abundance and Suzuki could deliver the kits to both Indian and the US market till the stocks last in their Japanese inventory.

Suzuki Intruder registered just 497 units in the month of November 2018. The overall fall was massive at 79% as November 2017 registered 2325 units of the motorcycle being sold across the country. Apart from the Access scooter and Hayabusa, every Suzuki product witness a downfall in comparison to the sales number last year. It seems like buyers were not interested in getting products other than commuters in the country. The cruiser is powered by the same 155.1cc, single cylinder engine, producing 14.6 BHP at 8000 rpm and 14 Nm at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The part sharing process made Intruder feel more like a sports cruiser as alloy wheels, tyres, front fender, console, and many other parts are visibly similar to the Gixxer series. The addition of weight came through huge panels and a different fuel tank. The Suzuki Intruder comes with ABS as standard while fuel injection is available for INR 7000. The SP variants available currently are nothing more than cosmetic upgrades for the bike. The cruiser DNA is enhanced with the forward-set foot pegs, impressive seating position and huge front headlight with unique handlebar position and well-placed console.

Suzuki is planning to achieve 1 million yearly sales target but the performance of Gixxer and Intruder is making things harder for the brand. Gixxer is placed in 30,000 units per month segment that is primarily captured by Yamaha FZ, Honda CB Hornet and Bajaj Pulsar. Suzuki Gixxer doesn’t even account for 10% of the sales. The introduction of ABS to all models was achieved by Suzuki a few weeks ago while their key rival Yamaha enjoys non-ABS benefit before April 1, 2019. The huge numbers for the Intruder 150 were only seen in the initial months as buyers went back to the Gixxer in almost no time.

The finish stays gloss like all other Hayabusa colour variants of 2018. Apart from the new colours, everything stays identical on the motorcycle. It can be had with a 1340cc, four-cylinder engine, producing 200 PS and 155 Nm. The values are good enough to propel the 266 kg motorcycle from standstill to 100 kph in 3 seconds. The top speed is limited to 299 kph on the stock version while unrestricted versions can touch 312 kph with ease.

Suzuki Hayabusa will be discontinued from several important markets on December 31, 2018. The availability will be limited to countries like US and India where emissions norms are not as strict as European nations. Hayabusa can reach the given restricted top speed in 25.4 seconds. Internationally, the motorcycle rivals Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R while for India, the price gap of approx INR 6 lakh divides them among two different price segments. The latter is brought through the CBU route in India. The next-generation Suzuki Hayabusa is expected to use a bigger turbocharged engine for class-leading power. 2020 Suzuki Hayabusa is expected to be unveiled at EICMA in November 2019.

Suzuki 2-Wheelers registered 53,058 units in November 2018. The growth rate of 24.2% was great at such a time when popular brands like Honda and Royal Enfield lost a considerable chunk of sales from their side. The net gain is all due to the Suzuki Access 125, counted as the best-selling 125cc scooter of India. The single product brought 80% of the sales to Suzuki while remaining comes from Burgman Street and Gixxer series. Apart from the top three options, the local production lineup is a complete failure with 0 units for the peppy Let’s scooter, 497 units for the Intruder and 290 units for the Hayate EP.

2019 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX1300R

These three products counted for just 1.5% of the total sales. Scrapping all three of them may even have zero impact on the sales of Suzuki India as those who are typically looking for a Suzuki will go for either the Gixxer or any one of the scooter except Let’s. The superbike lineup has its own story as middleweight products (V-Strom 650XT and GSX-S750) were good for several units while Hayabusa scored 23 units in November 2018. The litre-class trio (R1000R, S1000 and V-Strom 1000) failed to perform and got zero buyers in the 30-day period. Here is a complete model-wise sales report.

Scooters

  3. Let’s – 0 units

Motorcycles

  1. Gixxer – 2933 units
  2. Intruder – 497 units
  3. Hayate EP – 290 units
  4. Hayabusa – 23 units
  5. V-Strom 650XT – 15 units
  6. GSX-S750 – 6 units
  7. GSX-S1000 – 0 units
  8. V-Strom 1000 – 0 units
  9. GSX-R1000R – 0 units

The prices for GSX-S1000 and V-Strom 1000 are missing from the official website. The middleweight V-Strom is popular for its class-leading features while GSX-S750 simply looks perfect for a four-cylinder streetfighter. The GSX-R1000R is among the most expensive options when a buyer is considering a litre-class motorcycle.

Suzuki Hayabusa has registered 188% sales growth for the month of November 2018. The total number of units sold is 23 in comparison to just 8 units in November 2017. The report of Hayabusa getting discontinued is applicable for just European and Japanese market while as even before ending the production, they will produce enough motorcycles to keep the Hayabusa running in India for entire 2019. Suzuki Hayabusa is available in two new shades and price increase of INR 20,000 was charged by the brand. In comparison to the Hayabusa, Kawasaki ZX-14R registered zero units in the sales chart during this 30-day period.

Suzuki is working on the next generation Hayabusa that will support Euro-6 engine and may launch with enhanced power output through supercharging. The motorcycle is also expected to use lighter frame and body than the present version. The present version is available with a 1340cc, four-cylinder engine producing 200 HP of power output. It weighs 266 kg, all thanks to the conventional frame and use of standard parts that are not into weight saving. Suzuki is enjoying a niche segment as buyers who love powerful bikes and does not have any problem with the heavy wet weight choose Hayabusa over litre-class bikes.

  • Engine Displacement: 1340 cc
  • Description: 4-Stroke, 4-Cylinder, Liquid-cooled, DOHC
  • Maximum Power: 197 Bhp @ 9500 rpm

The beautiful custom-built motorcycle seen here is based on a 1994 Suzuki Shogun, leaving the basic profile behind for this modern cafe racer with parts that are exclusive in comparison to other modified bikes of this class. The motorcycle has been perfectly modified by Jedi Customs (Mumbai). Suzuki Shogun came with a basic design made through huge panels around the seats and a commuter style fuel tank. On the other hand, Shogun cafe racer comes with a slim fuel tank that flaunts dedicated knee recess and high-gloss finish. The frame is totally naked with a custom-made grille for one section and engine protector around the belly section.

The basic black seat has been replaced with a ribbed brown seat that it sits perfectly within the frame dimensions. The exhaust unit seen here is also completely black and has been raised to protect the same from hazards of the road. The wheels are kept spoke-type for niche cafe racer fans while fenders are now shorter than ever with grippy tires for impressive ride quality. The ground clearance for the Suzuki Shogun cafe racer is also very impressive, all thanks to the custom suspension setup with integrated mono-shock for the rear and thick, golden-finished upside down forks with long travel at the front.

The clip-on style handlebar and round front headlight setup complete the package. Jedi Customs have used performance air filter and custom exhaust for improved performance from the lightweight motorcycle. The motorcycle was available for INR 18,000 in 1994. It came with a 108.2cc, two-stroke engine, producing 14 BHP of maximum power at 8500 rpm and 11.4 Nm at 8250 rpm. The values are comparable to the present day power output of KTM 125 Duke. The bike weighs 114 kg in stock condition but this one is much lighter for sure. Getting 100 kph of top speed from the custom-built motorcycle is not that tough for an experienced rider.

This is what the JEDI Customs have to say about their latest creation: “Built on a rickety 1994 Suzuki shogun is our old-school cafe racer with a modern touch. Typical cafe racer tank and a straight seat give it the much needed cafe racer soul. The spoked rims and the retro colour combo add to the old-school details. Leather seats and dual headlamp do justice to the build. USD forks and mono suspension in the rear with LED lights give the bike a modern touch. The performance of the motorcycle has been tweaked with upjetted carb and BMC air filter. The lightweight cafe racer is just about what you need to zoom on the south Mumbai roads at night”.

Suzuki Gixxer 250 is the next big thing from the Japanese brand. The bike awaits unveil in January 2019, most probably at a dealer event and will launch in India around March 2019. The only question that remains is the list of equipment on offer as motorcycling community is divided into two different thought schools. The first view believes that Suzuki will rival the popular Yamaha FZ25 and bring a quarter-litre engine with features like fuel injection, oil cooler, and ABS. The other expects Suzuki to launch a premium streetfighter that rivals KTM 250 Duke and offer liquid cooled engine and USD forks.

The same variant will give birth to a faired version, rivalling options like Apache RR310 and Honda CBR250R in segment (if liquid cooled) or Yamaha Fazer 25 with oil cooling. The design inspiration for the upcoming Gixxer 250 will come from their GSX-S300 as it is the most recent design seen for a performance-spec naked in the global market. The motorcycle can share exactly the same design if Suzuki has no plans to bring the twin-cylinder performance motorcycle to India. Most parts will be shared with the younger Gixxer if planned rival stays Yamaha FZ25 in the country.

On the other hand, a completely new frame and body, with performance-friendly USD front forks can arrive if Suzuki plans to focus more on brand image than sales chart. The only feature that will arrive for sure is ABS and thus, pricing the motorcycle under INR 1.40 lakh is only possible with an oil-cooled unit. They will need to skip the premium features for this placement or otherwise, the next rival would be the KTM Duke 250, priced at INR 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom, without ABS). The current generation Suzuki lineup is available with just 150cc options before jumping to the big bikes section.
