Now equipped with BS6-compliant engines, the Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Gixxer SF 250. The Gixxer 250 naked is priced at Rs 1.63 lakh, while the Gixxer SF 250 naked edition is priced at Rs 1.74 lakh. As for the Gixxer SF in the MotoGP colors of Suzuki, Rs 1.75 lakh will cost you slightly more.
The BS6 Gixxer 250 costs Rs 3,400 lower as opposed to their BS4 equivalent, while the BS6 Gixxer SF 250 costs Rs 3,000 more. This kind of sustainable price hike is also what we planned for the 150s, because those bikes have already been fuel-injected. Suzuki had risen prices for the 150s of the BS6 Gixxer by a broad Rs margin of 12,000 though. We are happy to see that with the Gixxer 250s, that was not the case. The attractive price tag of Rs 1.60 lakh for the Bajaj Dominar 250 could have played a part here in the less than anticipated jump of Suzuki.
At the launch of last year’s Gixxer SF 250, the manufacturer had announced that the bike had been built with the forthcoming BS6 regulations in mind and now, with the introduction of a new exhaust and ECU, Suzuki has revised it to follow the more rigorous emission requirements. Suzuki has also managed to keep its power and torque figures similar to those of the BS4 models, with the 249cc engine on both bikes producing 26.5hp at 9300rpm and a torque of 22.2Nm at 7300rpm. Peak output is similar compared to the BS4 motorcycles, but is produced 300rpm higher in the rev range. Meanwhile torque has seen a decrease of 0.4Nm but is generated in the rev range 200rpm earlier. All bikes remain physically similar to their predecessors in the BS4.
