Gixxer 250 long-term owner review

3 months ago by Ej Kattinapudi774 views

Buying experience: This motorcycle is sold only at a suzuki premium dealer (in hyderabad). So, the experience was great! we were always treated with coffee, water and the paperwork was done in time for the delivery. The showroom floor also had a gsx-s750, an rmz 450 alongside a gixxer 150, sf 150 and an sf 250. They were kind enough to let my little niece take pictures with the motorcycles on display. Overall, a good purchase experience. Riding experience: This is worth reading! i owned a gixxer sf (150), which i traded in for the naked 250. Swinging a leg over the 250. The posture felt familiar and i loved how similar the handling was. Of course, the brakes seem to lack the bite that the 150 had (the 150 i owned has single channel abs) and the tyres lack grip! but, let me assure you that the brakes do have the stopping power, and the tyres are adequate for everyday use. Moving on, the engine is wonderful, with plenty of torque down low, for city use, and good power for a weekend highway cruise. I do both on a regularly. The tank capacity could be larger but when ridden gently, i go for about 400+ kms before i need to fill up. (35 kmpl approximately). Th posture is perfect for both city and highway use. A simple visor from the burgman 125 can fix you wind-blast woes on the highway. One thing to note, is that you tend to sit at a slope. So, a small amount of padding will help level the seating position, and will be comfortable for long distance rides. Design & performance: I think it's a good looking motorcycle. In the presence of it's rivals, it can hold its own. I own the silver and black (matte) variant and it's pleasing to look at. The inverted display is rather good, even in sunlight and i greatly appreciate the gear position indicator. Nothing fancy, just a good functional display. Suzuki did a great job with the sohc oil-cooled setup here, and it performs really well. Engine is tractable and efficient, and heat is really not an issue but also, i'm not constantly in dense traffic. Oil cooler works well; never had over-heating issue, despite some spirited runs on the highways with a certain other competitor (duke 250). You can push it all the way up to a speedo-indicated 153 kmph but i wouldn't recommend it, as the wind-blast is horrible. Highway manners are surprisingly good, with the ability to hold on to 90-110 kmph speeds, all day long. I use this motorcycle occasionally to visit some projects (450 kms roundtrip) and the ride is comfortable over these distances (with slight modifications to the seat cushioning) . All in all, a good performer for most things you'd throw at it. Servicing & maintenance: I've done 3 (free) services and the bill has never exceeded 1,200 inr. This was mostly for the oil and oil filter. I can't imagine it being drastically different if it were a paid service so it's safe to say that the service charges, so far, have been reasonable. Service interval is 4,500 kms to 5,000 kms (mentioned in the owner's manual). Keep an eye on the chain and take it to a professional if you want to get the chain adjusted or lubricated. The service center did this every time, but i get it checked every 500 kms. Pros & cons: Let's start with the pros. It's really good at what it is designed to do; a powerful naked 250, that is comfortable yet sporty, for both city and highway use. Power is great, ride and handling is good and maintenance is not expensive. The engine is efficient, and returns good fuel efficiency figures when ridden sanely. Led headlamps are great for city use and the inverted display offers all the info you'd ever need. Really, the biggest let downs are the lack of bite from the brakes and the uninspiring grip from the mrf tyres. I can't wait to swap them out and see what some other competitors. Pillion seating isn't that great, but it works all right for short city rides. Conclusion: I impulse purchased this motorcycle. Actually, my friend and i did. We both went for a test-ride, traded in our motorcycles, and took the new 250 home, the following day. Both of us, to this day, have absolutely no regrets! We took a chance on this one, without thinking too much and i hope you do too because it truly is worth it! Thanks and cheers!

    1. Comfort this bike is one of the most comfortable in its segment. The riding posture of this bike is straight and handlebar is a bit on the farther side but it's not uncomfortable at all. Suspension is very plush they absorb almost every kind of bump or potholes. The seat doesn't have great padding but again you can install the foam to seats afterwards. 2. Engine and technology the bike which i am owning is the carbureted one as it is while the current variant has the fuel injection. The bike has super smooth engine when I ride my gixxer naked 250 in the city I love this bike very much and in highway no words to use m very very happy with my gixxer

In daily traffic it goes smoothly Breaks are awesome.

    How is the new suzuki gixxer 250? i own suzuki gixxer sf 250 2019 matte black . At the time of writing this , ive ridden enough to give you some idea about the bike ( > 1000kms ) the first thing in the bike that stands out is the looks. Its looks kinda okay from the front , but from sides it gives that big bike " feel riding ergonomics, you will feel at home if you have ridden the previous generation gixxer sf 155 or gixxer 155 , but you need to stretch your arms a little bit to reach the newly installed clip onn handlebars . Foot pegs are neither center set nor back set , one need not flex the knee completely while riding. No wrist pain , back pain whatsoever after riding continuously for more than 200 kms . Bike feels light even at rest . Heart of the bike and performance, i will divide the performance into city and long rides . Before that , once you turn on the keys - the injectors make that sound which i like a lot . Suzuki easy touch has been equipped on this bike , that is , touch the self start once it will take multiple attempts by itself to start the bike , if the engine doesn't start immediately. 99.99 % of the times , engine comes to life just after you touch the start button . Engine is very smooth for a single cylinder bike. Gear shifts are smooth but not the smoothest !!!! city performance, i ride on the busy streets of bengaluru. The power and torque starts to kick in as soon as 3000 rpm and builds up till 9500 rpm . You can easily use 4th gear in the city , knocking sound doesn't come even at 3000 rpm in 4 th gear. If you want to overtake a vehicle , you can just open the throttle and pass that vehicle without changing gears. Mileage in city : 32 kmpl for my riding style long ride performance. The bike touches 100 kmph very easily without any hassles. Taking about cruise speed , will get around 95 kmph at 6000 rpm in 6th gear. Seat cushions are soft , it wont give you any kind of pains. Mileage on long rides : 37 kmph head lights : being an all led set up , the throw of the lights are excellent and you can ride all night long !!!!! windscreen : god!! its so small .Lol, definitely needs an upgrade. Pillion comfort : seats are soft and adequately wide , but i doubt the pillion comfort on long rides.And short pillion may feel very difficult to hop on the seat cuz its very tall. Road grip , mrf revzz are doing great job even on wet roads !!!! i wont be changing the tyres any time soon as i am pretty much confident on mrfs road presence , yes!!! people look at your bike quite often and you may have to answer a lot of questions which the people ask you in the traffic signals. Oil cooling !!! initially lot of men and women had a doubt about the cooling system on this bike , but it works brilliantly. If cooling doubt is the only thing which is bothering you a lot to make a decision to buy this bike, just believe me and go buy the bike mileage , city : 32 kmpl , long rides : 37 kmpl tyre pressure as recommended by the company , front - 29 , rear - 33 irrespective of the pillion seat occupancy. Competition : duke 250 , cbr 250r , pulsar rs 200 , rc 200 , dominar 400 , fazer 25 and fz 25 edit : now i have clocked around 4000 kms , when i ride it fast on the highways ( like 110 - 130 ) , keep the engine at higher rpms and i use lower gears in the city to overtake , engine braking and of course for little fun..Im getting a combined mileage of around 28 kmpl to 29.6 kmpl ( i calculate mileage by full tank method ) . Edit 2: i recently did a 600 kms ride got mileage of around 31kmpl only on highways .Riding speed was around 100117 kmph all the time.

    Best bike to ride in urban areas, long rides too. The build quality and style sporty looks are premium!Talking about ergonomics footpegs , handlebar and field of view while riding is excellent comfy.Engine performance and excellent throttle control are consistent .Bike feels flighty at higher speeds , so i'm afraid to ride at higher speeds sometimes.Handling is good to compensate flighty feel.

    Bike is little bit expensive after bs6 upgrade. But it's riding experience smooth and comfortable. Look very good and stylish. Performance super. Service cost and maintenance little expensive.Pros very good for medium range riding Cons price are expensive.The gixxer 250 looks exactly like the smaller, gixxer 155, which recently received a much-needed makeover and as we discovered in our road test review, the bike does impress. Coming back to the gixxer 250, its identicalness to the smaller one the all-led headlamp unit, instrument cluster and fuel tank are straight off the smaller gixxer is a positive and negative too. While the similarity of design gives it a familiar appearance, the identicalness also robs the 250 of a more premium feel, something that buyers upgrading from the smaller gixxer might look for. That said, the 250 gets matte-finish paint jobs only, while the gixxer 155 can only be had with a glossy paint finish.

    Buying in kolkata was tough. But pretty booking made it easy. Though they actually gave me my smart card in 6 months from buying date. Rides are wonderful and comfortable, also the pillion faces few problems such as the height of the back seat.. If you compare the looks to mt 15 or cb300r it's not as good looking as them but if you compare it to dominar, pulsar, all of the bikes from hero moto corp, or fz25 it's much more elegant and good looking. Servicing is a bit over priced, though i still have my 3rd free servicing left. But the cost of the paid services are much higher than that of duke series.
