While the smaller capacity BS-VI Suzuki Gixxer and Gixxer SF have been recently launched in the country, we are still waiting for the launch of the BS-VI versions of the larger capacity Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250. But before that happens, prices of both the BS-VI 250 cc models have been revealed.
As per the latest development, the BS-VI Suzuki Gixxer 250 would be priced at INR 1,65,147* whereas the BS-VI Gixxer SF 250 would cost INR 1,75,846*. Both the new models will be around INR 5,000 more expensive than their BS-IV counterparts.
BS-IV Suzuki Gixxer 250 and BS-VI Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 - Prices*
|Model||Old (BS-IV) price in INR||New (BS-VI) price in INR||Difference in INR|
|Gixxer SF 250||1,70,655||1,75,846||5,191|
For the BS-VI models of the Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250, Suzuki will certainly use the same 249 cc single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine. However, to make it comply with the BS-VI emission norms, certain changes will be adopted. This may lead to a slight deviation in the power and torque output figures. In the BS-IV state of tune, this engine produces 26.5 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. The 6-speed transmission will be the same.
The Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Suzuki Gixxer 250 SF are very fresh, and so, they're unlikely to get any cosmetic changes with the BS-VI transition. Some of the common features that will be carried over will include:
- Fully-digital instrument cluster
- Dual-channel ABS
- Twin-port exhaust
- LED headlamps
- Split seat setup
- Suzuki easy start system
- Brushed finish alloy wheels
