Suzuki Motorcycles India has launched the new 2019 Gixxer 250 naked in India today, based on Gixxer SF 250 with same engine specs
Suzuki Motorcycles India has launched the 2019 Gixxer 250 at Rs 1.59 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The brand recently launched the all-new Gixxer SF 150, Gixxer SF 250 & Gixxer 150 naked in India and now this 250cc version of their street-naked Gixxer has been introduced.
The new Gixxer has priced at Rs. 59,000 higher than the 150cc naked model that competes against the likes of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Yamaha FZ-S, Bajaj Pulsar 160NS and Honda CB Hornet 160R in India whereas, the 250 Naked will rival Pulsar NS200, Yamaha FZ25 and Apache RTR200 4V.
In terms of design, the new Gixxer 250 is based on the fairing version of Gixxer SF 250 with an identical LED tail lamp design and a chiselled fuel tank. There are new tank shrouds with updated Gixxer graphics. The biggest visual difference, however, is the new headlamp cluster which is an LED unit in an oval shape.

The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission and is offered with fuel injection. The Gixxer 250 gets dual-channel ABS as standard. In compliance with new emission norms, the engine will be BSVI compliant before the deadline kicks in.
