Should be launched later this year internationally.
Suzuki is known to be working on the new Suzuki GSX R250 for quite some time now. In the latest, the new quarter-litre fully-faired motorcycle has been previewed in patent images revealed online by Australian Motorcycle News.
This isn’t the first time the Suzuki GSX R250 has appeared online; the new sportsbike was fully revealed in undisguised spyshots clicked at the company’s Haojue Changzhou factory in China. The GSX R250 was expected to be showcased at Auto Expo 2016, however, that wasn’t the case.
The Suzuki GSX R250 is expected to be powered by the 248 cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder from the Suzuki Inazuma 250. In the Inazuma, this motor is tuned to produce 18 kW (24 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 22 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, and paired to a 6-speed transmission.
It’s unknown when the Suzuki GSX R250 will be launched in India. In a report released in February, Suresh Babu Janarthanan, Project Leader for CBU Products at Suzuki Motorcycle India, was quoted saying “We will launch (the Suzuki GSX R250) when the time is right.” Its close rival, the Honda CBR250RR isn’t planned to be launched currently either.
