    This is my first bike and i occasionally rode friends' gixxer and ns200. I thought of getting dominar but due to their '"amazing customer care", i couldn't even get a test ride. But i made a good choice considering performance-mileage aspect. I am not a slow rider and not a maniac either. So, riding conditions are mixed and would love to keep my speed at 70 to 90-100. This bike excels at those speeds with great mileage and unbelievable ease. I don't believe in people who say 90kmph is normal on naked or 150cc bikes. Those speeds are little uncomfortable for both rider and engine. This one handles that speed pretty well with some wind protection.Best things:1. Acceleration: nice linear-pull during 3-7k rpm. You will enjoy that smoothness it gives you along.2. Oil cooling: very effective. Not a gimmick at all.3. Stability: good stability at high speeds and nimble at low.4. Mileage: received 39kmpl for 2 tanks and average till now is 37-40. I think it is awesome considering the performance.Neutral: vibrations post 7k. Slightly annoying but not horrible. Bad things:1. Gear shifting: same as gixxer and not a good experience.2. Windscreen: at 100-110 bike is rock stable but you aren't because of opposing wind you get.3. Dual muffler: better on gixxer. This rectangle-ish design just sucks. Not a deal-breaker though.

    It's a good bike for mostly daily commuting and also for touring. The oil cool engine is far better than pulsar 220. And apache 200 4v. It's mainly a sport tourer not a sporty choose as gixxer 155(new version) . But all over good and engine sound and reliability is simp...
    It's a good bike for mostly daily commuting and also for touring. The oil cool engine is far better than pulsar 220. And apache 200 4v. It's mainly a sport tourer not a sporty choose as gixxer 155(new version) . But all over good and engine sound and reliability is simply awesome.Thick 150 rear tyre provides good balance. Mainly the mass balancing is so good that you would not feel a heavy weight when it's not running.

    Okay let me start my review with my buying experience. I was looking for a 200 cc bike or a bit higher and my budget was under 200k at the time my choices was re thunderbird and rs 200 cause they are cheap and i personally like the unique looks the bikes has to offer. At the time sf 250 was priced at 2006000 in my state, but i got it for 192000 as they were clearing out bs4 models.First ride was amazing i instantly fell in love with the looks and the ride comfort, its sporty but not as sporty as r15 and very stable you wont feel the bike wobble at all trust me on this. Also a point to add is the suzuki easy start system its a big plus.The looks sf 250 has is truly different and unique (also its not a common bike as the re in kerala, everyone is riding re here nowadays) so i really like the attention my bike draws in.The first free service at 300km cost me around rs.900 with including chain lube, oil change and washing etc.Two cons i can say is that1. The side stand is pretty straight compared to other bikes so be careful while parking on a slight sloping ground. 2. And all the spare parts are not readily available. When my cousin dropped my new bike just 2 days after i got it, i was shattered i thought the faring was gone. But honestly there was only a scratch on the faring that too on the sticker but the mirror and clutch lever broke. The service center guys was very calm and supportive about it they ordered the parts and replaced it. (took around 1 week for the parts to get here that's one of the cons i mentioned).All in all a good bike very study and comfortable 10/10 suzuki.

    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 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.

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.

We are at the Kari Motor Speedway. It’s a short and narrow racetrack near Coimbatore. It is technical and challenging, and an absolute blast on a small capacity motorcycle. And by small we mean sub-500cc bikes.
