Suzuki Gixxer 250 based adv is expected to be powered by the familiar 249 cc single-cylinder oil-cooled fuel-injected engine
Since the beginning of this month, Suzuki Motorcycle India Limited has been teasing a new motorcycle. With an emphasis on adventure and exploring new places, there is no doubt that the upcoming model will be an adventure. But what will be its engine power? Is it a global product? Is this a high-end V-Storm? Or the long-awaited V-Strom 250?
Courtesy of the first three teaser images, we have come to the conclusion that this could be a V-Strom because the Japanese manufacturer often advertises it as a ‘master’ in the world market but the questions surrounding its market position are large. Suzuki has promised that the adventure motorcycle will be launched soon, a new teaser video has revealed more details.
We expect the motorcycle to carry the V-Strom name and will probably be based on the same architecture as the Gixxer 250 naked streetfighter and the Gixxer SF250 Supersport. The video of the sliding around the motorcycle shows a dual-port side-mounted exhaust system that resembles a quarter-liter duo and is probably identical to the wheels with a different rim tape.
Another indication is that the visuals and layout of the powertrain with a bronze finish look quite identical to the Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250. The pair have been well-received in the market but compared to their competitors, the sales numbers have not been bright. Thus, adding a new motorcycle to the growing space will save costs by using familiar bicycle parts.
The Suzuki V-Strom 250 can be powered by the same 249 cc single-cylinder oil-cooled fuel-injected engine that produces a maximum of 26.13 bhp and 22.2 Nm of peak torque and can be combined with a six-speed transmission. , Having close gear ratios according to its Adv features. The telescopic front fork and rear psychic suspension should be of long travel nature.
Also, a dual-channel ABS system will be offered. Other expected features include an elongated windscreen, an all-digital instrument cluster with gear position indicator, Bluetooth connectivity and navigation, side-stand engine cut-off function, hazard lamp, round-shaped LED headlamps, and a tail headbar. Setup, etc. The upcoming Adviti KTM 250 is expected to compete with the Adventure and is priced at around Rs. 2.3 lakh (ex-showroom).
