Last week we saw the glimpse of the leaked patent images of the Suzuki GSX R250. The motorcycle comes following the design of the bigger sibling GSX R1000. Suzuki has earlier announced that a larger Gixxer is on its way to Indian market. Moto Blast has published a rendered image of the upcoming India bound motorcycle which looks gorgeous and gives us the preview of the production spec model.
While the commuter segment in Indian motorcycle market is dominated by Bajaj Autos, Suzuki is eyeing the premium segment. In that attempt the Japanese two wheeler maker is betting big on the upcoming GSX R250. This will directly take on Honda’s upcoming CBR 250RR. The quarter litre motorcycle will also compete against Yamaha R25 and KTM RC 250.

The GSX R250 will take power from a 248 cc parallel twin liquid cooled engine mated to a 6 speed transmission. The engine will be shared with the Suzuki Inazuma 250. The peak power output is expected to be around 30 PS or more than that. The Inazuma generates 26 PS of peak power and 24 Nm of peak toque. The motorcycle is presently under development in Japan. Once launched in India expect the pricing to be around Rs. 3 lakhs to Rs. 3.5 lakhs.
On the design front the Suzuki GSX R250 features sharp headlamp with mono halogen unit. The fairing gets design cue from the bigger sibling. Also the split seats, delta type tailpipe comes similar as well. A muscular fuel tank enhances the appeal, while the low seating rider’s seat offers comfortable riding position. The tail section of the motorcycle gets trimmed toward the tip.
The instrument cluster is expected to be fully digital. On the braking front the motorcycle gets discs at both the wheels. The rendering image suggests it will be offered in the signature MotoGP Blue theme.
