The production-ready Suzuki GSX-250R has been spotted undisguised recently, revealing its design cues and styling. The spied images reveal that the upcoming GSX-250R looks quite similar to its bigger sibling, the GSX-1000.

The fully-faired motorcycle is equipped with a sculpted fuel tank, split seats, digital instrument cluster (similar to the Gixxer 150 in India), sharp headlamp design, clip-on handlebars, centre-set foot pegs and a tall visor. The suspension duties are performed by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. For effective braking, the two-wheeler maker has also equipped the motorcycle with disc brakes at both the ends.

The motorcycle will make its official debut at the upcoming 2016 EICMA motorcycle show in November. It is likely to get its power from a 250cc, liquid-cooled, single cylinder, engine that generates 23 hp and 30Nm of torque and is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. It is expected that Suzuki will also offer an ABS system as standard.

After launching the motorcycle in international markets, the two-wheeler maker will launch the Suzuki GSX-250R in India by 2017. It will rival against KTM RC200, Kawasaki Z250, Benelli TNT 300, Honda CBR 250R and Yamaha YZF-R3.
