Suzuki GSX-250R (GSX S250F)Twin-Cylinder fairing equipped motorcycle finally revealed through another spyshots, has rivals waiting for it
Suzuki’s quarter litre seems to be a delight for spyshot clickers. The Suzuki quarter litre may not be most talked about motorcycle from the manufacturer itself, but there is no denying it is coming to the market. Spotted testing multiple times and being misinterpreted by world media, but this here speaks for itself today. The GSX-250R (mostly written on the fairing there) is finally here. Many aspects confirm this part. The quarter litre from Suzuki is a welcome to the market. Despite being late, but not like before, it is all set to be showcased at EICMA/Intermot soon. We have details for you and what you can expect from this quarter litre motorcycle which is set to have one of the best 250cc engines in the market today.
GSX-250R Design and Dimensions
The design language is what is expected from Suzuki. Large headlight cowl with a single protruding headlight. Side fairing panels are large and come with graphics. Multi-color scheme is a Suzuki patent with big machines, the GSX-250R gets it. Rear is raised, split seats on offer. Large tank, and fat tyres and suspension add to the sporty stance. Large windscreen dominates and makes it look like a proper sporty motorcycle.
GSX-250R Price and Launch
Launch will happen in late 2017 and prices will be around 2.5 to 3.5 lakhs. Depending on which model we get. A 350cc could make it for European markets just like how Kawasaki and Yamaha did it.
GSX-250R Chassis, suspension and brakes
A tubular frame is almost confirmed here and can be seen protruding just like its rival near the subframe area. The suspension is simple telescopic front forks and monoshock at the rear. Rear unit will be an adjustable unit. Petal brakes seen for the first time seen here are large in diameter and should be above 300 mm mark.
