The Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 race bike has been officially unveiled at the Kari Motor Speedway in Chettipalayam, Coimbatore. Based on the MotoGP edition, the race bike has been specifically designed to compete in the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 One Make Championship. In addition to this, some of the selected participants of the Gixxer cup will also get to ride the SF 250 race bike at JK Tyre championship at the Buddh International Circuit in November this year.

Coming to the major changes, the track-only motorcycle features race centric enhancements that will allow the rider to handle it well on the track. Though the key engine specifications remain the same, the brand has equipped the race bike with a new free-flow exhaust system. Apart from this, the ECU and the gear ratios remain the same as that of the stock motorcycle.

As per the reports, the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 race bike has not been tested on the track as of yet though one can expect a jump in the power by 3-5 HP. The brand has gotten rid of 20kgs of the kerb weight of the stock motorcycle to create this race machine. The removal of the exhaust has led to 5kgs drop in the weight while another 15kgs has been shed by the removal of the headlight, rearview mirrors, saree guard, rear fender, and the turn signals.

The lower-set clip-on handlebars further improve the race-specifics while the increased payload on the front and rear suspension make it the best contender for the track. The performance of the Gixxer SF 250 race bike has been further improved by the removal of ABS as well as from the use of braided brake lines that reduces the brake fade. The motorcycle has also been equipped with Metzeler Sportec M7 tyres for a stronger grip on track while the repositioned footpegs offer more track specific position to the rider.

Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 has successfully claimed itself to be the bestselling 250cc model in India. The motorcycle overtook the sales number of Yamaha FZ25, KTM 250 Duke, and the Honda CBR250R. The motorcycle registered 1,526 units in May 2019, leaving others behind by a huge margin.

The Gixxer SF 250 is powered by a 249cc, single cylinder engine, producing 26.5 HP of maximum power. The motorcycle is priced at INR 1.71 lakh, taking care of the buyers with just Yamaha FZ and Fazer undercutting the same in terms of price. The best part for the Gixxer here is the use of dual-channel ABS to keep the riders safe while intense braking.

The Yamaha FZ (including Fazer) was good for 910 units while the figure served by Honda CBR250R was very low at just 54 units. The KTM 250 Duke stays in the middle with 681 units in May 2019. All the products serve as a great example for balanced use as these return around 30-35 kmpl of mileage in everyday riding conditions.

The upper side of mileage is achieved when riding on the highway while figures can drop with more acceleration in the lower gears. When compared with similarly priced motorcycles, Bajaj Dominar proved itself to be a more tempting choice with 1,888 units sold in May 2019. The motorcycle is available for INR 1.74 lakh (ex-showroom).

Suzuki is offering the motorcycle from their premium dealership network only while using oil-cooling instead of the liquid cooling technology has helped the brand cut costs by a considerable margin. Gixxer SF 250 is available in two shades: Metallic Matte Premium Silver and Metallic Matte Black shade.

At 1,526 units, the sales number of Suzuki’s latest sportbike is much better in comparison to the 250cc Yamaha motorcycles which registered just 910 units in May 2019. The condition of the Honda CBR250R is very bad at the moment with just 54 units sold in the same period. Suzuki will also launch the naked version of Gixxer SF 250 in India by the end of this year. It will compete with the likes of Yamaha FZ25 and the KTM 250 Duke.

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.

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.

Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 vs Bajaj Dominar 400 (Quick Comparison): The recently launched Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is one direct rival to the Bajaj Dominar 400. Although, the body type and engine displacement have a different story to narrate, the price difference of just INR 3000 is good enough to discuss both the products simultaneously. The new Suzuki SF 250 is good for 26.5 HP whereas Dominar proves fatal to the rivals with 40 HP of maximum output. However, the weight difference is very huge, with Gixxer getting a benefit of 23kg in direct comparison.

The high torque value (35 Nm) of the Dominar can effortlessly pull this weight from standstill to 100 kph in less than 8 seconds. The top speed benefit also goes to the Dominar, with riders getting more aerodynamic comfort on the Gixxer SF 250. The engine size difference is quite considerable between both the options. The Dominar benefits from upside down forks and more informative console. However, the styling of the Suzuki motorcycle is eye-popping for sure. Here is a quick technical specification comparison between the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 and the Bajaj Dominar 400.

Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 will serve as the base for Gixxer 250, the naked version of the famed quarter-litre machine. The brand has officially announced that they will be launching the model in India before the festive season.

It will help Suzuki to have two India-specific 250cc models for the premium motorcycle segment that gained momentum after the launch of products like Yamaha FZ25, KTM 390 Duke, Honda CB300R, BMW G310R, TVS Apache RR 310, and the Bajaj Dominar 400.

Suzuki recently launched the full-faired SF 250 with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.71 lakh. The first and most important part for the development of the 250cc streetfighter will be the cost. Suzuki will try its best to undercut the price of the SF 250 by at least INR 15,000 or even more.

The launch of Yamaha MT-15 shocked everyone as the price gap was negligible between R15 V3 and MT-15. However, the launch of Gixxer 250 would be a different affair as Suzuki is expected to retain the same headlight from the current-gen model and bring something close to the international-spec GSX-S150 in terms of the front headlight design.

The street machine will feature the same 249cc, single cylinder oil-cooled engine, producing 26.5 HP of maximum power and 22.6 Nm of maximum torque. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The loss of weight from the fairing will help the naked version with better acceleration while the impressive stance of the motorcycle through the use of 150-section rear tire will stay intact.

Like the full-faired SF 250, the Gixxer 250 will also come equipped with a dual-channel ABS unit instead of the single channel option as seen on the 150cc models. The brand will also update the 150cc Gixxer street motorcycle but, the timeframe for the introduction has not been mentioned yet.

Suzuki is staying tight-lipped for the Intruder series at present but reports once surfaced that the cruiser motorcycle will get a major update next year. With the present pricing of all Suzuki products, only the Gixxer 155 can be purchased under a price tag of INR 1 lakh. Once it receives the expected design and component update, it would be impossible to buy a Suzuki motorcycle under INR 1 lakh (ex-showroom).
