The Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250 are now available with BS6-compliant engines. Compared to their BS4 counterparts, the BS6 Gixxer 250 and SF 250 are priced higher. This sort of competitive price hike is what we expected for the 150s as well, since those bikes were already fuel-injected. However, Suzuki had increased prices for the BS6 Gixxer 150s by a large margin too. The price is listed in its website.
At the launch of the Gixxer SF 250 last year, the manufacturer had revealed the bike was developed with the upcoming BS6 norms in mind and now, with the addition of a new exhaust and ECU, Suzuki has updated it to comply with the more stringent emission norms. 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 making 26.5hp at 9,300rpm and 22.2Nm of torque at 7,300rpm.
In comparison to the BS4 bikes, peak power is identical, but is produced 300rpm higher in the rev range. Meanwhile, torque has seen a 0.4Nm drop but is produced 200rpm earlier in the rev range. Both bikes remain visually identical to their BS4 counterparts. Suzuki revealed its entire BS6 line-up at Auto Expo 2020 and had plans to launch these models back in March 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed those plans by a few months.
While the Gixxer SF 250 doesn't have a direct rival, the naked Gixxer 250 faces competition from the Yamaha FZ25 and the Bajaj Dominar. Yamaha is yet to reveal the price of the BS6 FZ25.
