suzuki inazuma 250 spotted

Thanks to some smart photography work by the folks at Gears Goa we now have confirmed news that the Suzuki Inazuma 250 also known as the GW250 is in India and a launch could be near. This is the second time in the past couple of months that the Suzuki Inazuma 250 has been spotted in India, the previous was during a movie shooting featuring Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who is also the brand ambassador for Suzuki motorcycles. The folks at Gears claim that the bike was there for a commercial shoot and were enthusiastic enough to chase the unit down to get these snaps.

The bike is big and meaty and runs on IRC rubbers, we have never been fans of its design, and for sure its looks is not something that this bike will be known for. The engine is a 248cc fuel injected parallel twin that produces about 24 HP at 8500 RPM and 23.8 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. A relaxed engine with a strong bottom and midrange which would make it fun off the mark and zippy in city traffic. No word from Suzuki yet, in fact Suzuki is probably the most silent manufacturer in India. Will the Inazuma turn things around for them? Well there are many ways to look at it, we are pretty sure it would not appeal to the Duke and the CBR250 crowd, who it would appeal to are lets say those who want a powerful yet sedate experience, something to tour relaxed on with the added benefit of it possibly being a good daily companion. Check out the Suzuki Inazuma 250 specifications below.
