The Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is one of the best options available in the quarter-litre segment at the moment. Earlier this year, it received a new dual-tone colour option called the Triton Blue/Silver, which is popular among the enthusiasts as the MotoGP Edition. We recently got our hands on the new motorcycle and thought why not do a Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 BS6 acceleration test.
Before diving into the test itself, let’s have a look at the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 BS6 specs. The motorcycle uses a 249cc single-cylinder oil-cooled motor that complies with the Bharat Stage 6 emission regulations. It has been tuned to produce 26.5 PS of maximum power at 9300 rpm and 22.2 Nm of peak torque at 7300 rpm. The transmission here is a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle weighs 161 kg (kerb) and has a wheelbase of 1345mm.
Just like our previous acceleration tests, we conducted 3 attempts for this one, too. Following are the results:
|Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 BS6 Acceleration Test|
|Attempt||0-60 km/h||0-100 km/h||0-120 km/h|
|1||3.60 seconds||8.43 seconds||-|
|2||3.35 seconds||8.20 seconds||-|
|3||3.23 seconds||8.07 seconds||12.87 seconds|
As you can see, the best 0-60 km/h time that we achieved on the Gixxer SF 250 BS6 was 3.23 seconds, which is pretty impressive, don’t you think? Also, reaching 100 km/h from a standstill took 8.07 seconds in our third attempt. We also pushed the motorcycle to 120 km/h and it did that in 12.87 seconds. So, it wouldn't be incorrect to say that the Gixxer SF 250 BS6 is a reasonably quick motorcycle in its segment.
Some of the key features of the Suzuki Gixxer 250 BS6 include:
- Fully-digital instrument cluster
- Attractive full-LED headlamp
- LED taillamp
- Clip-on handlebars
- Sporty split seating arrangement
- Split pillion grab rails
- Brushed finish alloy wheels
- Double-barrel exhaust
In other news, Suzuki has recently launched the BS6 V-Strom 650 XT in India. It is the brand’s first BS6-compliant big bike in the country.
