Suzuki Motorcycle India are readying a new product which is set to hit our shores soon. The company recently dropped a teaser of the following motorcycle, further saying that it will be here on 7 October. The given teaser reads:” Introducing a superior way to ride”, which was first seen on Suzuki’s India website.
According to reports, the motorcycle in question could be the new Intruder 250. This could be so because the given text of the teaser is imposed in a shape which resembles the speedometer of the Intruder. On the other hand, the Gixxer line-up also shares the same speedometer, but it is highly unlikely that the range could be receiving a new addition come 7 October.
The Gixxer is available with both 150cc and 250cc capacities of motors currently. The Intruder on the other hand, does not have the latter, which is updated to the BS-VI emission norms. Hence, there is every chance of Suzuki introducing the Intruder here with a new engine option.
In fact, images of the patent filed by Suzuki for the upcoming Intruder 250 came out a while ago. This very much improves the case of the Intruder 250 coming here anytime soon. The motorcycle will basically have the same body carried on from its 150cc sibling.
There could be the addition of a few features to distinguish the Intruder 250 from its smaller version as well as justify the premium it will be garnering. However, the major change that we expect will be on the engine front. The Intruder 250 will be borrowing the same motor that is seen on the Gixxer 250.
This is a 249cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine that comes with Fuel Injection. In addition to that, the motor will be making 26.5 BHP of power and 22.2 Nm of torque. It will be coming paired to a 6-speed gearbox, also seen on the Gixxer 250.
The bigger capacity motor and the bump in power could be a shot in the arm for the Intruder, which could attract a few customers towards it. The Suzuki Intruder 150 comes at a decent price of Rs. 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Thus, we can say that the upcoming Intruder 250 could be priced a bit higher, probably around the Rs. 1.3 lakh mark.
