All set to launch on May 20, barely a week away, Suzuki recently teased an image of the Gixxer 250. But, a list of specs and additional side profile released by auto magazine Motoroids, reveals more.

The fully faired sports bike will be called Gixxer SF 250. It will directly compete with the likes of the Pulsar RS200, the KTM RC 200 and the Honda CBR250R.

Equipped with a lower set of clip-on handlebars, split seat configuration and slightly rear-set footpegs, the design gives the new bike a fairly aggressive riding posture.

The tank is similar to the current-gen Gixxer, but the fairing and headlamp units are different. And while we will have an accurate idea only after the bike is launched, let us compare the specs we have in hand now.

The Gixxer gets a 249cc single-cylinder pumping out 26.5 PS of power and 22.6 Nm of torque, identical to the CBR250R. The other competition, the Pulsar RS200 and the RC 200, however, fall slightly lower at 24.5 PS/18.6 Nm and 25 PS/19.2 Nm respectively. All bikes get six gears with top speed claimed to be in excess of 140 km/h.

While all bikes also get a rear monoshock, the RC 200 is the only one with upside down forks in the front, and the others feature the conventional telescopic forks. All bikes also get disc brakes at both ends, with single channel ABS for the Pulsar and RC, but a dual channel for the other two.

Coming to dimensions, the Honda takes the cake with a 1369 mm wheelbase - the longest, followed by the Bajaj at 1355 mm, the Suzuki with 1345 mm and the KTM with 1340 mm.

The KTM has the tallest seat at 820 mm, while the Suzuki gets 800 mm. In terms of weight, the CBR250R is 167 kg at the kerb, while the Gixxer weighs in at 161 kg.

Not a part of the specs sheet, but pricing can still be compared. While there is no official word on the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250's pricing, we expect it to be within the Rs 1.7 lakh range.

The Honda CBR250R is the most expensive here at Rs 1.96 lakh, followed by the KTM RC 200 at Rs 1.88 lakh, and the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 coming in as the most affordable at Rs 1.4 lakh.
