    Suzuki has launched the Gixxer SF 250 at Rs 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The motorcycle marks Suzuki’s entry into the fully-faired, 250cc segment in India and it, along with the Gixxer SF 150, debuts a new design language for the bike maker in the country.

    The large headlight is certainly the talking point of the new design. The sharp edges on it tie in nicely with the cuts and creases over the rest of the motorcycle. The fairing, tank and tail appear proportionate and feature a smooth flowing design that is not overly aggressive. Other design touches are the short windscreen, gold-coloured finish on the engine casing, clip-on handlebar and chrome-tipped double barrel exhaust. While the chrome tip has a different design, the muffler looks very similar to the ones we have seen before on the 150cc Gixxers.

    The Gixxer SF 250 is powered by a 249cc, single-cylinder, SOHC oil-cooled engine that makes 26.5hp at 9,000rpm and 22.6Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. The fuel-injected engine will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox. In comparison, the Gixxer 250's most direct rival, the Yamaha Fazer 25, produces 20.9hp at 8,000rpm and 20Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. Suspension on the Suzuki, meanwhile, is taken care of by a telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear, while braking will be handled by a disc brake at both ends. The bike comes equipped with dual-channel ABS as standard. Other interesting details are a fuel tank capacity of 12 litres and a kerb weight of 161kg – 4kg more than the Yamaha Fazer 25.

    At Rs 1.71 lakh, the Gixxer SF 250 sits between its direct rivals – the Yamaha Fazer 25 (Rs 1.44 lakh) and Honda CBR250R ABS (Rs 1.95 lakh). Other similarly priced motorcycles are the KTM RC 200 (Rs 1.90 lakh), Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 (Rs 1.39 lakh) and the Bajaj Dominar 400 (Rs 1.74 lakh).

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
