Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

Projects a new design direction.

A speculative rendering of what’s referred to as the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Suzuki GSX-250R, has surfaced online. This is the same rendering that emanated from Young Machine Magazine that circulated the blogosphere towards the end of July, 2015, but this scan (below) is more legible for observation.

Suzuki is reported to be working on two brand new 250 cc segment motorcycles.

Suzuki is believed to be working on two quarter-litre motorcycles, assumed to be the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Suzuki G-Strom 250. The former is the anticipated upgrade to the 160 cc Suzuki Gixxer and Gixxer SF, while the latter is an adventure tourer that is expected to be built as a competitor to the unconfirmed Kawasaki Versys 250. If the latter is brought to India, it will be pitted against the soon-to-be-launched Mahindra Mojo and Royal Enfield Himalayan.

Both the anticipated quarter-litre Suzukis, the Gixxer 250 and the G-Strom 250, are desirable products for the Indian market.

While the rumoured G-Strom 250 is assumed to be a rugged & more adventurous version of the Suzuki Inazuma 250 featuring the same chassis and engine, the Suzuki Gixxer 250 is expected to share some elements from the smaller and larger Gixxers. However, the looks are anticipated to be significantly new, and the details of the engine are unknown too at this point.

The Japanese magazine has rendered the GSX-R250 in a way that suggests an update in Suzuki’s school of design. The publication has also rendered a new litre-class model that is referred to as GSX-R1000R.

The rendering has portrayed a twin-cylinder motor within the fairing, making us wonder if the Inazuma’s motor could be optimized for the entry-level sports bike.
