Suzuki GSX 250R Overview
Suzuki GSX 250R is the first full fairing racing motorcycle in the quarter liter segment offered from Suzuki. The company is already doing well with the Gixxer SF, which is good at its style, performance, ergonomics and also in case of pricing. As the game of 150cc is going on a hot pursuit, the design and production of Suzuki GSX 250R started to pose competition with the other 250 cc rivals.
The recent good news received from the china is the spy shots of the Suzuki GSX 250R, which is a sign of good news for the wonderful ride going to be offered.
There is another thought whether the Gixxer 250 is going to be named as Gixxer SF 250 or GSX R250. But, finally it is confirmed that the new machine is called as Suzuki GSX 250R.
Suzuki GSX 250R Outlook and design
The bike will mostly embrace the 150 Gixxer SF design, however the GSX R250 is considered to have the inspiration of GSX series top class bikes. The few modifications spotted on the GSX R250 to take them a step ahead to be the premium features are the split seat set up, separated piece clip handle bars for the better accommodation of the handle while turning.
The foot pegs, front disk lever and clutch come in the aluminium finish job, while the fully cast alloy wheels seem different from the current variant of Gixxer. The front fairing gets an additional chiselled job for the identity of the handsome GSX 250R. This time the Suzuki GSX 250R is expected to have decent graphics on it though the current information feel the complete paint finish.
Engine and gearbox
The new GSX 250R will be powered by the 248 cc, liquid cooled system, 4-stroke, DOHC, 4-valve capable of producing peak power of 27 Bhp @ 8500 rpm and peak torque of 23 Nm @ 7000 rpm, mated to six-speed gearbox is the close expected values to contest with the similar bikes available.
A special fuel injection system from Suzuki on GSX 250R must be a good value in terms of its mileage and power delivery. The six speed gearbox will let you have an extra bite on the engine refinement part.

The Suzuki GSX 250R can come up with a top speed of 145-148 kmph as expected as it sounds, and a mileage of 25-30 kmpl on a decent driving. The new frame design exclusively from the Suzuki may contribute for the fastest GSX 250R, fuel economy and power to weight ratio.

The suspension of the GSX 250R misses the up-side down forks however the conventional telescopic front forks and the rear mono shock are good enough.
The tires of the Suzuki GSX 250R are also considered to be the same as the current situation, yet the front may have supported with additional 10 mm of tire thickness. ABS may be offered as an optional for the GSX 250R in order to keep the standard variant affordable.
