Japanese automaker Suzuki has unveiled its complete line up for the upcoming year and this includes its quarter-liter sports bike 2021 GSX250R. The only major customization is the inclusion of a new colour scheme and now the GSX250R will be available in white and black paint option. The full black colour scheme of GSX250R has been moved forward.
Apart from this, there are no updates regarding the latest journey of the GSX250R motorcycle. The motorcycle will be available for USD 5499 which is approx. Rs. 4.06 lakh in the US market. Also, the latest model will only be available in single variant i.e. ABS variant.
Suzuki GSX250R Design and Features
This model has carried similar specifications and features as we have seen on the outgoing model. It sports same muscular styling because of its fully-faired design. The motorcycle features a unique dual LED headlights, angular fairing mounted mirrors and an effective sport windshield at the front which incorporates slots in order to reduce continuous wind lashing. It has a sharper tail with an LED taillight at the back which reminds us of the larger GSX-R1000R.
It features signature sporty elements comprising split style seats and clip on handlebars though they are fairly high. Footpads are lower than usual and because of which the seating position is relatively roomy and relaxed. Moreover, the front and rear turn indicators come equipped with clear lenses which enhance their stylish appearance. Overall, the bike is aggressive but it is a fairly neat and easy to go design.
The GSX250R comes with a reverse lit LCD instrumentation which shows a wide array of information like a bar graph tachometer, speedometer, odometer gear position indicator and more. Its suspension setup includes conventional telescopic forks at the front and a mono shock at the back from KYB. It gets disc brakes on both the ends assisted by dual-channel ABS.
As far as its performance is concerned, it is powered by a 248cc parallel twin liquid cooled motor which is also used in Suzuki’s tourer Inazuma. This unit is coupled with a six speed gearbox. Its output figures of 24 PS of power and 21.6 Nm of peak torque are not significant in this section. It gets beat by a smaller Duke 200 which receives an output of 25.83 PS and 19.5 Nm and most probably it is because that Suzuki has designed this bike by keeping in mind beginners and younger riders.
With Rs 4.0 lakh, it makes little sense for a quarter litre motorcycle in India and in a budget oriented market like India, Suzuki is off selling better value for money bikes in the form of single cylinder Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250.
