Along with the Suzuki Gixxer 250, the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 has been launched in Japan in the country. Suzuki expects to sell 1,800 units of these India-made 250 cc bikes.
Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 Features
The Suzuki Gixxer SF 250’s primary attractive features are its full fairing, sporty LED headlight, and clip-on handlebars that provide a slightly aggressive riding posture. The quarter-litre Gixxer SF has been given a full-digital instrument cluster. It shows various information like speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, etc., in an organised format.
The fuel tank design of the Gixxer SF 250 is quite muscular. Also, the high-rise tail section gives the motorcycle a sporty appearance. Overall, the Gixxer SF 250 has an aerodynamic design that enhances performance and fuel economy.
Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 Specifications
Talking about performance, the Gixxer SF 250 is fitted with a newly developed 249 cc single-cylinder, 4-valve, SOHC, fuel-injected engine that comes equipped with SOCS or Suzuki Oil Cooling System. The SOCS allowed Suzuki to keep the weight of the engine as low as possible without compromising on its performance throughout the rev-range. This engine has been tuned to produce 26 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 22 Nm of peak torque at 7,300 rpm. In comparison, the engine of the upcoming Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 BS6 in India churns out 26.5 PS of maximum power at 9,300 rpm and 22.2 Nm of peak torque at 7,300 rpm. The transmission is the same - a 6-speed unit.
