The Gixxer 250 is a street bike that draws its styling cues from the smaller Gixxer while sporting the same mill as the Gixxer SF 250.

Suzuki GIXXER 250 Variants

  1. Suzuki GIXXER SF

Suzuki has introduced new colours for its Gixxer and Gixxer SF range. For the first time since the bike got its BS6 updates, Suzuki has increased the prices of its Gixxer SF and Gixxer models, both of which are now roughly Rs 2,000 dearer. The Gixxer SF is now priced at Rs 1,23,940 while the MotoGP edition costs Rs 1,24,970 (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi). Suzuki has not given any new features and the bikes do feel a lot pricier in comparison to their BS4 counterparts.

Suzuki GIXXER SF Specifications

The Gixxer SF BS6 gets a 155cc air-cooled and fuel-injected motor. This BS6-compliant mill puts out 13.6PS at 8000rpm and 13.8Nm at 6000rpm. That is 0.3PS and 0.4Nm less than the BS4 Suzuki Gixxer SF. Kerb weight is also up by 2kg so expect a drop in performance. The Gixxer SF BS6 continues to feature a 5-speed gearbox. The Gixxer SF shares its tubular diamond frame with the larger Gixxer SF 250. It is more rigid than the first-gen model but is heavier as well since it uses thicker pipes. The clip-on handlebars and split-seat setup also lend the bike a more aggressive seating position. Suspension setup includes 41mm telescopic forks and preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking is via disc brakes at both ends with single-channel ABS. It is one of the few bikes in its segment that sport a larger 140-section rear tyre.

Suzuki GIXXER SF Features

The Suzuki Gixxer SF BS6 gets an LED headlamp, LED tail lamp and bulb turn indicators. The digital instrument console has been updated and is easier to read now. It includes the speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, odometer and trip meters.

Suzuki GIXXER SF Variants

The Suzuki Gixxer SF BS6 is available in just one variant. However, its blue colour variant with MotoGP livery commands a Rs 1,000 premium over the other two colours. Other than the colours, the bikes are identical.

The generational update makes the Suzuki Gixxer SF BS6 look more premium and sportier than before. It gets edgier styling, clip-on handlebars and a split seat to complete the effect. The Suzuki Gixxer SF BS6 has an impressive quality and fit and finish levels. It comes in three colours: Glass Sparkle Black, Metallic Sonic Silver and a Metallic Triton Blue paint scheme with MotoGP livery that costs a bit more than the other two.

Pros And Cons of Suzuki Gixxer SF

  1. Suzuki GIXXER

Suzuki has introduced new colours for its Gixxer and Gixxer SF range. Suzuki has hiked the prices of the Gixxer and the Gixxer SF by around Rs 2,000. This is the first price hike for the 150cc Suzukis since their launch earlier this year. While the price premium isn’t too high, the new asking price of Rs 1,13,941 (ex-showroom Delhi) makes it the costliest bike in its segment. 

Suzuki GIXXER Specifications

The 155cc motor powering the Gixxer was already fuel-injected and has now become BS6-compliant thanks to some new ECU maps and an additional catalytic converter. As a result, output has taken a hit, down from 14.1PS/14Nm to 13.8PS/13.6Nm. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Gixxer is held together by a single-downtube frame and suspension components comprising a conventional telescopic fork and preload-adjustable monoshock. It rolls on 17-inch wheels at both ends and anchorage is provided by disc brakes at both ends assisted by single-channel ABS. The increase in weight on the BS6 version is insignificant, just 1kg.

Suzuki GIXXER Features

The Gixxer’s sharp look is also thanks to the LED headlight and tail-lamp that Suzuki is offering. Turn indicators continue to be conventional bulbs. Instrumentation is a fully-digital affair with read-outs like two trip-meters and real-time fuel-efficiency being shown. Single-channel ABS ensures safety when panic braking.

Suzuki GIXXER Variants

The Gixxer has always featured muscular streetfighter styling right since the start, and even though it received a design update last year, the overall ethos of the appearance remains the same. There’s a large, sculpted fuel tank that takes centre-stage, and the flat, wide handlebars give the Gixxer a butch stance. The signature twin exhaust exits are still present and seem to be a hit with buyers.

  1. Suzuki V-STROM 650 XT

The 645cc DOHC 90-degree V-Twin motor now meets BS6 emission norms and as a result, engine output has fallen by 0.3PS and 0.3Nm, down to 70.7PS and 62Nm. Aside from the updates to the motor, there are no other changes on the BS6 bike. It continues to roll on wire-spoke wheels in a 19-inch/17-inch combo, while the suspension is handled by a 43mm telescopic fork and linked monoshock adjustable for preload and rebound damping. Stoppers are in the form of twin 320mm discs up front bitten by two-piston callipers and a single 260mm disc at the rear clamped on by a single-piston calliper.

The highlight of the bike is its 19-inch front and 17-inch rear spoked wheels that accommodate tubeless tyres. The Bridgestone Battlax A40 tubeless tyres off a good balance on and off-road usability.

Suzuki V-Storm 650 XT Features

The Suzuki V-Strom 650 is designed similar to the larger V-Strom 1000. It has an industrial design and comes with ADV features like a front beak and tall windscreen. For versatility, the pillion seat and rear luggage rack are on the same level so you can carry larger boxes with ease. The exhaust too is fitted lower for the panniers to fit flush into the bodywork. Overall panel quality and fit and finish are top-notch. The vertically stacked headlamp have halogen bulbs for lighting and the tail lamps is an LED unit. While Suzuki sells the V-Strom in two variants abroad, we get the off-road-oriented V-Strom XT model.
