Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP Edition vs Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP Edition: Specification Comparison
The Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP Edition is powered by a 249cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, fuel-injected engine. The unit paired with a 6-speed gearbox produces about 26 bhp of peak power 9,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. The newly developed engine features Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS) technology that is capable enough to compete with any liquid-cooled engines.
The oil cooling is not only cost-effective but also improves the fuel efficiency and performance of the motorcycle. Suzuki claims that they have developed this new oil cooling technology keeping the Indian market and conditions in mind.
The Gixxer SF 150 MotoGP Edition, on the other hand, is powered by the 155cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder fuel-injected, air-cooled SOHC engine. The unit paired with a 5-speed gearbox makes about 14 bhp of peak power at 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 14 Nm at 6,000 rpm.
This is the same unit that also powers the standard SF 150 and the newly introduced Gixxer 150 as well. For your information, the 155cc, single-cylinder engine is the same unit that used to power its predecessor as well. However, Suzuki does not offer the carbureted variant of the engine anymore.
The suspension duties of both the SF 150 MotoGP Edition and the more powerful SF 250 MotoGP Edition are handled by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear. The braking duties of both the Gixxer SF 250 Gixxer 150 and the newly launched MotoGP Edition motorcycles are taken care by disc brakes on both ends.
A dual-channel ABS is offered as standard on the Gixxer SF 250 while the SF 150 features a single-channel ABS as standard for the safety of the rider.
