Suzuki Gixxer 250
New Suzuki Gixxer 250 has been spied in the UK, courtesy MoreBikes. The Suzuki Gixxer 250 should have the same 248 cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine as the Suzuki Inazuma 250, which produces 18 kW (24 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 22 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm and is mated to a 6-speed transmission.The Suzuki Gixxer 250 will rival the newly-introduced Honda CBR250RR and Yamaha R25 as well as the Kawasaki Ninja 250. Its Indian launch hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Suzuki has launched the Gixxer 250 in China. The bike is powered by a 250cc parallel twin engine borrowed from the Inazuma. The power figure stands at 24.6 bhp at 8,000 rpm and the torque at 23.4 Nm, produced at an even lower 6,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a six-speed transmission and the power is sent to the rear wheels via a chain drive. The design is quite similar to its litre class brethren, as all the bikes under the Gixxer moniker are. The bike gets a two-to-one triangular exhaust.

Dimensions & Weight
The Suzuki GSX250R measures 2085 mm in length, 740 mm in width and 1110 mm in height. It carries a wheelbase of 1430 mm while the seat height is reasonably good at just 790 mm. The motorcycle carries a fuel tank measuring 15 liters and weighs 178 kg (kerb weight).
The console looks more like the Indian Gixxer series, claiming a full LCD unit with dark background and loaded features. It comes with a large speedometer, gear indicator, digital clock and newly added features like oil change intervals as well as real time fuel consumption. Surrounded by LED indicators and two buttons, the display is crystal clear and easy to read, even in bright sunlight.
Engine & Gearbox
Being a twin cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected unit, the engine is quite disappointing when it comes to maximum outputs. The 248cc motor is good for just 24.7 BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 23.3 Nm @ 6500 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox while weighs considerably high at 178 kg. The first question which comes in mind is why would Suzuki do such injustice to this brilliant design?
The answer is simple as they saved a lot of money by not developing a new and powerful engine while planting the Suzuki Inazuma’s engine with a little bit of tuning. The closest competitors namely Yamaha R25 and Kawasaki Ninja 250 produce 35.5 BHP and 32.5 BHP respectively. The first weighs just 166 kg while the second is at 170 kg. If launched in India, Suzuki GSX-250R would be competing with the Yamaha YZF-R3 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.
