Suzuki Teases The BS6 Gixxer 250 Twins — India Launch Soon

Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited has released teasers of the Gixxer SF 250 and Gixxer 250 on its official website, indicating that they will be launched soon in our markets. Suzuki showcased the Gixxer twins at the 2020 Auto Expo earlier this year. Both motorcycles were scheduled to launch much before but were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bookings for the BS6 Gixxer 250 twins had commenced at the time of their unveiling at Expo and the token amount at selected dealers in Mumbai and Delhi is Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000 respectively. Also, Suzuki launched the India-made Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 and Gixxer 250 motorcycles in the Japanese market last month. However, we expect that the company will launch the motorcycles in India as soon as the lockdown is lifted.
