Confirmed for production mid this year in July, here is our first sighting of a Suzuki Gixxer 250 or GSX-R250, being snapped at a factory in Japan.
Since revealing its 250cc Inazuma, Suzuki has been a little bit back and forth about the development of a sporty 250cc motorcycle. However, these images confirm that the Japanese bike maker is well on its way to producing a Gixxer 250cc inspired from the bigger GSX-R siblings. This quarter-litre motorcycle is expected to be unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo at Greater Noida in Febraury-2016.
According to the publication, the fully-faired Gixxer 250 here borrows its swing arm and several other components from the Inazuma 250. It features a clip-on handlebars, tall windscreen and huge fuel tank and split seats with a tail up design. The instrument cluster and switchgear seems to be carried over from the Gixxer 155. Once launched in India, it will compete with the Honda CBR250R and the upcoming Hero HX250R.
Although the engine details are scarce for now, the trusted sources reveal that the engine will be a 248cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor paired to 6-speed transmission. This unit is expected to produce close to 25 Bhp of maximum power and around 22-25 Nm of peak torque. It will most likely come equipped with a lightest engine in its class and will be equipped SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) for a best-in-class healthy mileage.
