Following the success of the Suzuki Gixxer 155 and the Suzuki Gixxer SF 155, the Gixxer 250 is expected to be launched in India next year, first as a sports model and later as a street fighter. The models could be named the Suzuki GSX-R250 and the Suzuki GSX-S250 respectively given that it is expected to be inspired by the more powerful GSX series motorcycles that include the GSX-R1000, GSX-R600, GSX-S750, and the GSX-S1000.

Currently in India, only two of the GSX series models are being sold, via CBU route - the GSX-R1000 and the GSX-S1000.
