    Default Gixxer 250 launched in by Suzuki at INR 1,59,800 (Ex-showroom, Delhi)

    Hot on the heels of recently launched Suzuki Gixxer 250 SF and refreshed Gixxer and Gixxer SF (plus the MotoGP Editions of both Gixxer SF 250 and Gixxer SF), Suzuki has launched the Gixxer 250 in India. The price for the quarter-litre streetfighter starts from INR 1,59,800 (ex-showroom, Delhi).



    The new Suzuki Gixxer is powered by a 249cc, SOHC, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, and oil-cooled unit that also powers the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250. The power and torque figures are similar to at 26.5 PS and 22.6 Nm, respectively. The power is transmitted to the rear-wheel via a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle makes use of the Suzuki Oil Cooling System for better performance.

    On the suspension side of the story, the front end features telescopic forks and the rear end utilizes a swingarm-type mono-shock. 17” wheels at both the ends shod with tubeless tyres also carry disc brakes on both the ends. A dual-channel ABS system is standard. With a fuel tank of 12 litres, the new Suzuki Gixxer 250 weighs 156 Kg (wet).

    A digital speedometer does the job of transmitting information to the rider. Headlamp and taillamp both are LED units. The twin muffler is short and stubby to keep the mass of the motorcycle centralized and provide good handling characteristics. Apart from that, we have brushed finish alloy-wheels, rear tyre hugger, split seat, split grab rail, and most importantly, the Suzuki Easy Start System.

    The new Suzuki Gixxer 250 is available in two colour options -- Metallic Matte Black and a combination of Metallic Matte Platinum Silver and Metallic Matte Black.

    Mr Koichiro Hirao, Company Head, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd., said, “In the last five years, Gixxer brand has become synonymous with Suzuki's attributes of quality, style and performance. It is our constant endeavour to bring a fresh perspective and value to this brand. Today, we are thrilled to launch a stylish and powerful biking experience to our patrons in the form of Suzuki Gixxer 250. This product is a true reflection of Suzuki's legacy in developing high-performance motorcycles of superior quality backed by cutting-edge technology. With this addition to the Gixxer portfolio, we look forward to riding upwards and continue the growth momentum.”

    Mr Devashish Handa, Vice President, SMIPL said, “We have taken it upon ourselves to introduce our patrons to the thrill of the ride with the Gixxer series without compromising on style and efficiency. With the Suzuki Gixxer 250, we want our consumers to upgrade their riding experience to something stronger. We are confident that our latest offering will receive the same adoration as its predecessors. We are hopeful that the Suzuki Gixxer 250 will reinforce our position as a popular youth brand in India.”

    Gixxer 250 is a much anticipated bike. However, I do not find the design of the mufflers attractive.

    And I did not find its price attractive. In this era of automotive slowdown and considering the price of FZ25, price should have been lower.

    What's the ex-showroom price of FZ25? I would not like to compare Gixxer 250 with FZ25, because of FZ25'S dismal power figure, lack of sixth gear and uninspiring highway performance for a 250cc. Atmost, I will see myself FZ25 in the 200cc segment. I seriously think FZ25 is overrated in the 250cc segment. Barring the pricepoint, a Duke 250 will run circles around FZ25 anyday.

    There is a roughly 30K difference between the two bikes, both ex-showroom and on-road (Delhi at least).

    Aside from Duke 250 there's basically nothing else in the 250cc segment it's a barren land. CBR250 and FZ25 are the only two, both are ancient. Gixxer 250 is the only new thing that seems to have some bells and whistles, the other two bikes are completely basic.

    Honda India now being an Activa company and keeping the same CBR with close to 0 changes, FZ25 is the only other option left for those that don't want KTMs or a faired outdated Honda bike that costs more than it should. I don't know about overrated but FZ25's really been the only other option.

    As for Duke running circles around FZ. Most people seem to like the FZ for it's large fuel tank, fuel efficiency, low end performance for the city and neutral riding stance I don't think performance is a criteria for them.

    =======
    To clarify, I have no stake in this matter, none of those bikes matter to me and I simply went to the showrooms and inquired about the pricing of Gixxer 250 and FZ25 for my cousin just 2 days ago for his first bike.

    FZ25 does have good low end torque, if it matters to anyone... It makes for an easy commute.

    Plus, I wish to add that its much more smoother than my Duke 390, and with that gearing you can do a 35-40 kmph in top gear, a boon while touring considering that I'm always going 3-6 gears while touring on Duke... on state highways at least.
    Also, while the suspension is a lot more comfortable, the frame is stable and great at handling.
    Plus, the glitchy fuelling of Duke 390 is not there in FZ25, its rock stable idling and pinpoint throttle even when it heats up.

    390 is tonnes more fun, don't get me wrong, but the Yamaha refinement is impressive, even in isolation of the market.

    So, Duke 250 might run circles, true, but what about those who want to go a straight line... a very long line, going intercities?

    In the end, its all about what one wants for himself.

    I said this and soon that even that difference is gonna go away and become minimal.


    Yamaha has announced that they will be manufacturing BS6 bikes/scooters from November on-wards and the price will be hiked by 10-15% (depending on the vehicle).


    So FZ25 Ex-Showroom Prices:
    Current - 1.37L
    10% Hike - 1.50L
    15% Hike - 1.57L


    This makes the difference between the two between Rs. 2000-9000 depending on how much percent increase there actually is and that makes the Suzuki Gixxer 250 a much better choice starting November, since Gixxer 250 is already BS6 ready so they won't be hiking the price for that.

    Not necessarily. In case you dint know, the new Gixxers are being registered as BS4 even though they are already BS6 compliant. So if we are to go with what Yamaha is going to do, then Suzuki will hike the prices of Gixxers as well, question is by how much %?

    Also I am pretty sure R15 V3, FZ15 V3 and FZ25 are all BS6 compliant. Only thing that will change is most likely the registration in your RC. They are hiking the price just to change BS4 to BS6 in your RC.

    As far as I know, no vehicles are being registered as BS6 regardless of if they're already compliant of BS6, "BS6 Ready" or fully imported and matching Euro 6.

    Further I am hesitant about 'BS6 Ready' and what it means, hopefully nothing like "HD Ready" Displays which ultimately turned out to be 720p. And since they are being registered as BS4 presently, will the owners then have to go and get it changed to BS6 after April or will they be treated as BS4 and the current owners get shafted? There is a severe lack of information on how all of this will work.

    Manufacturers who have been exporting vehicles from here to Europe sell them with Euro6 compliance and they've been making those Euro6 engines for many years but that hasn't carried over to the Domestic Market so I don't think these bikes are already BS6 compliant.

    If that was the case then existing customers would become eligible to change their vehicle reg to BS6. Then they also wouldn't need any separate period to start manufacturing BS6 as they claim. Plus these are all ex-showroom prices so it has nothing to do with RC/registration. Although I do understand what you're trying to say that they'll be charging for mere certification if they're already BS6 compliant.
