After launching the Gixxer 250 in India in August 2019, Suzuki has now launched the quarter-litre naked motorcycle in Japan. The India-made Gixxer 250 is available in the land of the rising sun for JPY 448,800 which converts to INR 3.06 lakh*. In India, the Gixxer 250 BS6 will be launched very soon. It will cost INR 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom, Patna).
Suzuki Gixxer 250 Features
The Gixxer 250 that has been launched in Japan is the same model that is available in India. It features a full-LED compact headlight and a sleek LED taillight. The single-piece handlebar provides an upright riding posture which suits the bike’s character perfectly. The fully-digital LCD instrument cluster shows various information like speed, odometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, tachometer and much more.
Some of the other interesting features of the Gixxer 250 include:
Suzuki Easy Start System
High-rise tail section
Twin-barrel exhaust for a premium look and bassy exhaust note
Split grab rail
300 mm/220 mm front/rear disc brake
41 mm telescopic front suspension and preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear
Suzuki Gixxer 250 Specifications
Powering the Gixxer 250 is a 249 cc single-cylinder, 4-valve, SOHC, fuel-injected engine. Suzuki developed a new oil-cooling system for this engine. It is called SOCS or Suzuki Oil Cooling System. This allowed the Japanese brand to keep the weight of the engine as low as possible without compromising on its performance throughout the rev-range.
This engine produces 26 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 22 Nm of peak torque at 7,300 rpm. In comparison, the upcoming Suzuki Gixxer 250 BS6 in India has 26.5 PS of maximum power that is produced at 9,300 rpm and 22.2 Nm of peak torque which kicks in at 7,300 rpm. The transmission is the same - a 6-speed unit.
With its Gixxer 250, Suzuki has found the lost momentum in the 250 cc segment. The Gixxer 250 has managed to garner good sales in the Indian market. It is expected to do the same in Japan where it is available in two colour options - Matte Platinum Silver Metallic/Matte Black Metallic and Matte Black Metallic. These are the same colour options that are available in India. The deliveries of the Suzuki Gixxer 250 in Japan will begin on 17 June 2020.
