Suzuki is moving slowly but steadily, getting serious with its approach to exploring the Indian bike market. The Japanese manufacturer has just launched its well-known 250cc motorcycle here, the Inazuma. After Suzuki’s truly revolutionary motorcycle designs over the years, including the thrilling Katana and game-changing Hayabusa, you could either love the Inazuma or hate it, but there’s no arguing that the new bike covers all styling bases as far as distinctiveness goes.
What makes this 250cc twin special when standing face-to-face with rivals already entrenched in our market? Does the Inazuma justify such a hefty premium? Can it be ‘the bike’ for you, or an ideal machine to tackle Indian roads with? We have all the answers.
The Inazuma has adequate fuel efficiency for a 250 twin, delivering 28.9kpl when riding in congested city traffic conditions, as commonly experienced across India, and returning 26.9kpl when cruising at speeds approaching 100kph on more open highways.
