Previously we had reported about the leaked patent images of the new Suzuki GSX-S300, a 300cc naked motorcycle. Now, Bennetts has revealed the leaked patent images of the Suzuki GSX-R300, the fully faired version of the GSX-S300.
Currently, Suzuki retails the GSX-250R which is powered by a 248cc engine producing 24.7bhp and 23Nm of torque. The power output is shabby when compared with its rivals such as Honda CBR250RR. Now, Suzuki is developing an all-new 300cc motorcycle with improved power figures.
The patent images reveal that the new Suzuki GSX-R300 will draw power from a new 300cc parallel-twin engine. The engine will be mounted on a tubular frame which is similar to a trellis frame. Suzuki might also offer upside down forks and monoshock suspension.
By looking at the patent images, we can expect the Suzuki GSX-R300 to feature a single disc brake up front with the mounting bracket diagram. The motorcycle features a conventional swingarm, which could be made out of aluminium.
The new 300cc parallel-twin engine could be a doubled up version of the Suzuki GSX-R150s engine. With the 62mm bore and 48.1mm stroke, the new engine could deliver a power output of close to 40bhp which will be a huge improvement from the GSX-250R.
On the design front, the new Suzuki GSX-R300 looks similar to any other faired bikes from the Japanese company. We expect the GSX-R300 to be similar to the GSX-R125 with an identical headlight design. The design of the seat also looks similar to that of Suzuki GSX-R125.
Suzuki is expected to reveal the new GSX-R300 at the 2018 EICMA motorcycle show in Italy in November 2018. Suzuki could launch the GSX-S300 in 2019. Alongside the faired GSX-R300, Suzuki is expected to reveal the naked GSX-S300. The new 300cc bikes from Suzuki is unlikely to hit the Indian shores anytime soon.
