Suzuki has launched the BS6-compliant versions of its Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250 motorcycles in India. The duo comes at a starting price of Rs. 1.63 lakh, which is up to Rs. 3,400 more than the outgoing variants. Notably, the bikes debuted in India at the 2020 Auto Expo, and carry nearly the same power as their BS4 counterparts.
The Gixxer 250 and SF 250 come with an eye-catching look with impressive body graphics, sloping fuel tank, stepped-up seat, and a stout exhaust pipe.

The Suzuki Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250 come equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS to avoid skidding on the roads while braking. To manage suspension duties, the motorcycles house telescopic forks on the front and a mono-shock unit on the rear.
The BS6-compliant Gixxer 250 costs Rs. 1.63 lakh, while the BS6 Gixxer SF 250 and the SF 250 MotoGP variants cost Rs. 1.74 lakh, and Rs. 1.75 lakh, respectively. At this price point, the Gixxer 250 duo takes on the Yamaha FZ25 and Bajaj Dominar.
