October 21, 2016 – The much-awaited Suzuki GSX 250R (Suzuki Gixxer 250 in India) recently broke cover at the 14th China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition. The bike will have its world premiere at the 2016 EICMA Motorcycle Show in November 2016. This quarter-litre motorcycle is basically the bigger sibling of the GSX-R150, and derives its design inspiration from bigger GSX-R motorcycles.

A report published on carandbike claims that the Japanese bikemaker has no plans to launch the GSX-R in India anytime soon. Though, we believe it will be a great move to bring in the more powerful version of the bike considering the growing popularity of 200-250cc bikes in India. And just like the Gixxer 150cc, the company has an option to launch the 250cc model too in both naked and fully-faired versions. This will also help the company rival the KTM Duke 200 and KTM RC200, Kawasaki Z250 and Kawasaki Ninja 300, Benelli TNT 300, Honda CBR 250R and Yamaha YZF-R3.

For people not in the know, this isn’t the first time Suzuki is entering the quarter-litre segment. The company earlier had Inazuma, which failed to generate volume for the company due to its high price. The product otherwise was really capable. And now with the huge success of the Gixxer brand, it won’t be that tough for the Japanese bikemaker to sell a 250cc bike under the same brand.

Suzuki Gixxer 250 (GSX R250) India Launch Date

Suzuki’s upcoming entry-level sports bike recently goes on sale in China. As for now, its India launch isn’t on the card. We’ll update the launch details as and when the company announces it.

      You can get any bike modified, but make sure that it’s only cosmetic and doesn’t affect the performance of the bike. In that case, you may lose the warranty given on the bike.

    This bike is full about design oriented in which we see it’s more aerodynamically reduced drag form the front and the tail so suzuki doesn’t has to think the power of the motor . Because when it comes to the motor it’s refined and fuel efficient by suzuki eco performance, so when it comes to quarter-liter bike segment which is my study of bikes I see suzuki is coming up with it’s design, Honda is coming with it’s sporty performance where has yamaha is no where in this segment they have over crossed to 320 cc and when it come ninja kawasaki it;s all about brand of japanese brand who wouldn’t compromise with it’s quality.
