The Suzuki Inazuma was a flop motorcycle, there is no denying that fact. Ever since it was discontinued, Suzuki has focused on the mass market motorcycles, but not a replacement in the 200cc+ segment. Now, rumours suggest that a Gixxer 250 might be on the cards, and that Suzuki might launch it in 2019.
Suzuki might have noticed a steady demand for the likes of Yamaha FZ-25 & Bajaj Dominar 400 over the past few months, and hence, a Gixxer 250 would allow the brand to appeal to a wider audience, who is looking for a premium and more powerful daily ride option. Just like the FZ series grew from 150cc to 250cc, the Gixxer series can now make business and aspirational sense for Suzuki.
However, it is unclear for now if this new Gixxer 250 will be a naked street bike or a fully faired sports tourer. In due course of time, both body styles will surely be on offer.
The 2019 Suzuki Gixxer 250 is expected to be similar in design to the Houje 300. Expect features like ABS, LED headlamp and tail lamp, TFT instrument console, rear monoshock, split seats, alloy wheels, and other standard equipment.
Expect the motor to be a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 250cc motor which could pump out power close to 25 BHP. We’re hoping that this motorcycle will be offered with a 6-speed gearbox.
