    The motorcycle was good for around 3500km,no issues faced upto this range and completed the 1st service at 800km. After 3500km near to the 2nd service time got oil leaking from the engine head and 1st gear become noisy(neutral to 1st).About this time i went to the service centre for 2nd service of this motorcycle and addressed these issues with them,they take 2 days for the servicing.Changed engine head gasket under company warranty(only ridden 3500km).After the servicing the gearing noise became less for just 1 day and the gearing issue came back ,this time with bigger problem.The gearing 1st,2nd and 3rd gear shifting become noisy,hard and clunky ,several times I had got false gearing.Went to service centre,but they had no idea why this noise is coming and they take some phone calls and share some of gearing noise videos to someone from the suzuki, but nothing helps to solve this issue.And they send the motorcycle without clearing the issue and told me that they send some photos and video clips to Suzuki India for this issue and they will replay once they find the solution,They are told me that this the first bike to reported with these issue.......!!!

    Suzuki gixxer 250 is actually one of the fully packed bike in this price range. On comparing with it's opponents cbr250 and ktm rc 200, the bike overall in between them. It is better than rc 200. Almost similar to cbr. But lacks the top performance when compared to cbr, mainly because of lack of wind protection. Feature wise, gixxer is much better than the cbr. As a city motorcycle and for daily usage, gixxer is the best in this class. It is very punchy, refined, sporty as well as comfort, and fuel efficient also.

    I bought the bike on June and I have ridden it for 1100 kms and the beast completed its first service and overall the engine is very smooth and the riding position is very comfortable and I went for a long ride for about 200 kms and its performance is amazing and in the midrange the power delivery is awesome, we can ride in the city very comfortably because the handling is good the only con about the bike is above 140 kms the wind blast is heavy.

    1. buying experience here in Bangalore is pretty good . Though i had to wait a long for getting the number plates . 2. Riding experience is quite well . I owned a Gixxer Sf before and I feel same while driving it in city . I am yet to take it out on tour . The riding quality is good with decent pick up . I found lot of vibrations till the first servicing . 3. Looks is great though I liked the old big head light model from last Sf model . Headlight is good . Suzuki should have provided more details on the meter . Like Mileage details , speed details . 4. Servicing is ok . Not great and not bad . They charge for everything in the free service , and your amount will come around 1k, for free servicing. 5. Pros - stylish , superb performance . Cons - Vibrations other than that its superb bike to enjoy .

    I have purchased this bike in oct 2019. My buying experience with the dealers was fine. The bike has a stunning look and i was reviewing this bike on youtube and decided to invest money on this bike. The bike was fine up until the first service and then i started facing issues with the bike when crossed 3000 kms. Oil leakage on the head gear slips between 1, 2, 3 gears, false neutral and many more.... The head gasket was changed twice and still, the oil leakage issue was not fixed. I have launched a complaint on the same with the service point and no one seems to know how to service this bike as well. I have tried multiple service stations and end up with similar responses which turn out to be negative. At this moment the bike is new and the warranty is covered. Once the warranty is complete, all of these to be serviced would incur a charge and repetitive issues would also add to dissatisfaction. Personally, the looks of the bike alone do not provide satisfaction to anyone. The performance front needs to be taken into consideration if we need to evaluate the bike as a whole. I have stopped using the bike as i have started becoming depressed day by day. There are too many thoughts flowing around and less time to write, but for good, this is a buyer's cry.I have already started wondering if i have made the right choice buying suzuki gixxer 250. I would personally not recommend this bike to anyone.

    I was researching and done test ride in following segment bikes ,especially in 200cc ,250 and 400 CC . in which TVS 200 RTR ,Bajaj Ns200,Honda cbr 250 Thunderbird ,Java ,KTM ,FZ S, MT 15. finally I have filtered TVS RTR, Bajaj NS 200, dominor. TVS having a starting problem in wet condition and NS 200 is having chain sprocket problem in very short time .dominar had been updated recently but it is a star and very comfortable bike with very good road presence but the mileage of the dominar is 18 in the City 22/24 max in highway ride. since I'm in 30 s .I need to ride with kids.so I always search for street bike I never tried on R15. because of the seat height but I love that sporty type.after searching so long time finally I have seen the ad of Suzuki from the house of Hayabusa. the Hayabusa was dream for me .finally I book a test drive . I've done 150 cc and 250 CC both . oh my God when I sit in the bike and when I accelerating be the sound was like a double barrel very convincing. I prefer 250 coz dual abs and more power with the matte black.. in 150 cc you have shine black and shine silver. bad braking in 150 cc riding experiences refined engine the . excellent breaking ,stylish look ,beast definitely, catch stranger eyes while you drive, mileages 24 in city e 28 to 30 in highway just now for service done they charge 900 rupees 1.2 litre oil change and chain lubricant done I suggest you people to buy your motul chain lubricant for every 500 kilometre u can lube yourself for change life otherwise you need to go to service centre and they will charge hundred and fifty rupees for that with GST of course pros 1. value for the money 2. best in class very stylish appealing 3. refined engine headlight and tail light LED was awesome 4 excellent breaking dual abs 5. sure man, you are roadside stranger will definitely ask. when you stop in signal or traffic someone will definitely ask you which company bike ?is this is it imported? 6. my top speed is 140 and it's very quickly to reach hundred with 6 speed gearbox . I almost drag race between all segment which I said above still I didn't do with KTM but Suzuki is the winner with above all especially with 250 cc but I know KTM is also the beast in speed. cons 1. back sitting quite high but lower than R15. so that if you go with your wife or girlfriend they will be ok for 20 minutes or half an hour without any problem after that surely they will I lye over you and it will be a extra pressure for you to seat and to handle the situation and the backseat of will be holding your shoulders or hits there is no grip to hold anywhere else. 2.bad horning definitely not for this bike convincing 3. shock absorber is not that much convincing 4. very important when I gone long drive is about 250 kilometres . single cylinder oil cooled unit got activated I believe but normally will activate. but in extra distance the engine was over heated and cooling system does the job.but the point is ,the heat is passing your legs ..u can actually feel it from your left knee part to calves does from the engine .even I was wearing a jeans still I feel the heat of the engine on my left leg. I just thought if I wore a shorts or track pant..it will definitely hurts. cannot bear the heat this is the only major problem which I face... but still I love it...you cannot expect 100% ..it's omitable in long rides. guys hope I had given a honest review...but everyone have their own view and taste. I had given mine.so enjoy riding SF 250.

    Straight to the experience of riding this motorcycle, Suzuki has done justice to the 250cc segment and bringing up a new competitor and machine into it. The machine is completely refined and a well built faired motorcycle. Had so many wonderful riding experiences with this machine. It's a complete package. A slipper clutch would have been nice but more or the same, the bike is an eye-catcher.

    On-road price in bengaluru is around 2.19 lakhs . Till now i’ve clocked 600kms on odo ( and will try to update the review soon after first service ) . Firstly , the thing which you notice about this bike is the looks, it looks kinda cool and has a bigger bike feel when viewed from the sides but looks smaller from front. The riding posture , if you have ridden gixxer sf 155 , you’ll feel at home on this bike too, but you need to stretch your arms a little bit to reach the clip ons. Seats are soft and broad . Pillion seat is also soft , but you may feel difficult to hop on and off the bike . The instrument cluster , though smaller in size shows all the info except for average fuel consumption. Riding experience, in city the bike feels powerful , you will notice that the torque and power starts kicking at just about 3000 rpm. As the bike is still in break in period , i’ve taken the bike till 100kmph very gradually once or twice. The power keeps building till 9000 rpm, and getting a speeds of 100-110 is very easy . Brakes , front break is quite good i can’t tell they are the best , rear brake lacks bite . Vibrations are there in the higher rpms ( i’m expecting the vibrations to go after first service is done ) . The engine feels really smooth , this is the first feature you’ll notice once you rev the bike . The headlights being an all led setup , the throw of light is very good and you can ride all night with at most confidence. The cooling system , oil cooling is doing its job , even once i didn't feel the heat near my calfs in bumper to bumper traffic in bengaluru. The only thing which disappoints me is the length of the windscreen ( suzuki wanted to carry on the katana legacy ) , i will be upgrading the windscreen asap. Build quality and paint , both are brilliant and no complaints whatsoever.

The bike looks very well put together and looks right from any angle.The bike feels very light and after testing out other 250s i can safely say that this bike is super refined.The price is justified i feel. The gearshift is not the smoothest but it's just right. All in all a very good prospect.

The 250cc is a very interesting segment. Because this is where you get motorcycles that have aspirational styling, tonnes of features and performance that will make you own a motorcycle for much longer than you would have wanted.
