The Suzuki Gixxer SF250 is launching shortly! The bike is a strategic product for Suzuki, considering that it marks Suzuki's return to the hugely popular quarter-litre space. While the bike is yet to be showcased officially, images and the brochure of the Gixxer SF250 have been leaked already, providing enough and more information about the fully-faired sportsbike. It's interesting to note how Suzuki has gone in for a sportier approach for the 250, than it did with the smaller, 150cc Gixxer SF a few years ago.
