Furthermore, SMIL will launch/showcase other products at the upcoming Auto Expo in the first week of February 2014.

The Inazuma GW250 will be brought into the country through the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route, while assembly of the bike will take place at the company’s Gurgaon plant. Powering the Inazuma is a 248cc, fuel-injected, parallel twin motor producing 26 bhp and 24.4 Nm of torque and mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The GW250 will compete with the likes of the KTM Duke 200, Honda CBR250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the upcoming Pulsar and Mahindra Mojo.

A semi-faired Inazuma GW250S was shown at this year’s Auto Shanghai in April. However, the GW250S will be locally produced in China and would be exported to other markets only in the future.

Autocar believes that apart from the GW250, SMIL will launch a new commuter bike and a new scooter.
