The video captures the exhaust note of the upcoming motorcycle. We are not sure if it is the actual exhaust note or an enhanced sound that was added during the video production. Do note that the Gixxer 155 and the Gixxer SF deliver a sporty sound with its exhaust system and it will not be incorrect to expect the same from the quarter-litre model. The upcoming Gixxer SF 250, as seen in the leaked brochure, also features a Gixxer 155-style twin exhaust.

The Gixxer SF 250 does not stay in the video for long. However, the footage does reveal the full-LED headlight of the upcoming quarter-litre motorcycle. The bike in the video carries the same colour that was seen on the leaked brochure.

A recent report claimed that the Gixxer SF 250 will be priced at INR 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom) and the pre-launch bookings have commenced unofficially at select Suzuki outlets in the country. Potential buyers can book the upcoming motorcycle for a token amount of INR 10,000. The pricing is higher than what we had expected, and the Gixxer SF 250 sits between the Yamaha Fazer-25 (INR 1.44 lakh*) and the Honda CBR250R (INR 1.94 lakh*).

*Ex-showroom Delhi prices

The Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is powered by a 249 cc oil-cooled, single-cylinder, SOHC, 4-valve engine that churns out 26.5 PS at 9,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. The motor is paired with a six-speed gearbox. Check out the performance comparison with its rivals in the table below:
