Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP Edition Unveiled: First Look

During the third round of the Gixxer Cup Championship at Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore, India, Suzuki unveiled a new quarter-liter superbike – the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP edition.

Unfortunately, this bike will only be available for Indian motorcyclists, at least initially, but its sure worth reporting about and, especially, gawking at.

Suzuki Indian says the Gixxer, named after Indian’s Gixxer Cup Championship, arrives with an all-new Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS) that caters to Indian riders.

“Oil cooling system in engines was first introduced by Suzuki to the world for creating light weight and fast engines,” a Suzuki spokesman said, “which provides high performance for a wide range of needs, from city riding in traffic to serious sport riding.”

Instead, separate oil cooling flow lines are added. This not only reduces weight, but also maintenance costs.

Suzuki says the hot oil goes through the oil cooler and then via the oil cooling channel before it goes to the oil pan. The system then channels the cooled oil through a filter to different parts of the engine such as piston jet, crank, cam, and transmission.

This is a continuous process in which lubrication flow lines are kept separate from cooling flow lines which results in high cooling efficiency, Suzuki says.

Here are the specs and a photo gallery of the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP edition.
