Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 has segment best power and torque and takes down the Yamaha Fazer25 fair and square at its own game. It against the segment best, Pulsar RS/NS 200
Single-Cylinder Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is finally here as it has been launched in the Indian market! In India, the entry-level premium 200cc class is the ideal segment for people looking bikes which are both fun and frugal. Suzuki Gixxer 250 engine capacity allows riders to either just lurk around the town or go fast around their favorite twisties and even wander long and far, fulfilling their touring dream. Suzuki claims it even has track ready performance. Gixxer cup is paving way so much more!
There have been a few very familiar motorcycles that have ruled this segment often overthrowing their old and boring commuter-focussed cousins. Let’s take Bajaj for example; their 200NS is a strong contender even after being ages old. How can we forget the TVS Apache RTR 200? The Apache bought TVS back in the game. It was light, agile and mighty fun on a winding stretch of road.
Then came the Yamaha FZ25, which merged versatility and everyday convenience in a more affordable and efficient package. It also came with 50 extra ccs, which more power and that’s something we cannot say no to. Yamaha though has lost the plot yet again with lower power output. A case seen in the FZ 150cc up gradation as well in the last three versions.
Suzuki Gixxer 250 is based on the Gixxer 155’s frame, which has proved its mettle and continues to be one of the best handling chassis in this segment. The frame will get some obvious modifications to meet the needs of a bigger and more powerful engine as well as increased weight. Talking about the engine, Suzuki has equipped with a a four-valve head, and feature oil-cooling to keep costs at bay.
Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 comes with segment highest 26.5 bhp of power and 22.6 Nm of torque. 6-speed gearbox is offered. There is an LED Headlamp, and a digital console. There is a disc brake setup on both the ends with ABS as well. Specs reveal the bike has a kerb weight of 161 kg. While FZ25 weighs 152 kgs, it makes 6.5 bhp less as well.
Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is priced really well at Rs. 1.7 lakhs ex-showroom India. The motorcycle comes equipped with LED lights at the front and back, offers single channel ABS as standard. Slipper clutch is not being offered with this bike.
