Suzuki Gixxer 250: Suzuki’s 250cc naked motorcycle

While fully-faired 250cc sports bikes may be a hit among youngsters, it may not appeal to a large audience – and that’s where its naked, street bike equivalent comes into the scenario. These bikes are easier to live with as they are more practical, lighter and make for easier bikes to ride in city conditions. The Gixxer 150 was quite a hit when it was launched back in 2014. It now comes with a larger-capacity motor. It is easily the nicest sports commuter bike you can buy today.

Engine

Packed neatly within the frame is a 249cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 26.1bhp and 22.6Nm of torque. The motor is oil-cooled and comes paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. The Suzuki Gixxer 250 is BSVI-compliant.

Specifications

The 2019 Gixxer looks very different from the bike it replaces. It now looks more muscular and sportier. At the front, it gets a modern circular LED headlamp, a beefy fuel tank. There are lots of lines and creases that give the bike its definition. It has a split-seat design, and the tail section looks quite sleek. At the rear, it gets a distinctive LED tail light and we really liked the stubby, dual-port exhaust can with chrome exhaust tips. The instrument cluster has received some updates. It boasts of a large LCD screen with information that is clearly visible. It shows twin trip meters, a speedometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge and tachometer. It has tell-tale lights on the borders of the LCD. We were impressed with the quality of the switchgear. In terms of dimensions, the Gixxer 250 is 2010mm in length, 805mm in width and 1035mm in height. The bike has a strong top-end. The engine is also very responsive and doesn’t feel stressed on at higher speeds. The gearbox is also quite smooth. Acceleration is impressive too and the exhaust sounds nice and throaty. At 156kgs, the bike feels light and nimble. The ground clearance, on the other hand, is 165mm, while the bike has a wheelbase of 1340mm and a seat height of 800mm.

Mileage

The Suzuki Gixxer 250 has a fuel tank capacity of 12 litres. In terms of mileage, the Gixxer 250 is capable of returning 36kmpl by ARAI, in BSVI guise.

Mechanical Parts

The seating posture on the bike is perfect. You lean forward a bit, yet sit upright. The overall seating is quite comfortable. The foot pegs are placed in the middle and the handlebar is nice and wide. The cushioning on the split-seat set up is a bit firm, but under-thigh support is good. The grab handle for the pillion feels go to hold on to. The Gixxer 250 is a hoot to ride. The Gixxer tackles corners with aplomb and stays glued to the road. It’s very easy to ride in city traffic, thanks to its short wheelbase. At high speeds, the bike stays planted but the ride quality is a little on the firm side. The tyres provide good amounts of grip, and the brakes bite very well. At the front, the bike rides on telescopic, oil-damped suspension, while the rear gets mono suspension. As far as the chassis is concerned, it is built around a diamond-type frame. The Gixxer 250 runs on 110/70 R-17 tyres at the front and 150/60 R-17 tyres at the rear. Retardation duties are taken care of by disc brakes at the front and at the rear.

The Suzuki Gixxer 250 is available in two shades like Metallic Matte Silver / Metallic Matte Black and Metallic Matte Black. Metallic Matte Black is certainly a colour that is bound to be a favourite among young riders.
