Suzuki Gixxer SF250 VS Honda CBR 250R VS Yamaha Fazer 250 specification comparison

The 150-300cc class is where most of the action takes place these days in the Indian market. Suzuki has taken the plunge in this category now. The Japanese motorcycle maker burnt its hands the last time around with the exorbitantly priced Inazuma 250. Now, the company has taken a different approach. It has entered the fully faired 250cc class. Meet the new Gixxer SF 250. The bike boasts a lithe styling, fully digital instrument console as well as dual channel ABS. The motorcycle is powered by a 250cc, oil-cooled, single cylinder engine.However, as discussed before, the 250cc class also has champs like the Honda CBR 250R and the Yamaha Fazer 250. Both these bikes too have fairings and look the part. The common things amongst these three bikes is the fact that they have dual channel ABS and all-LED headlights. The CBR is the oldest of the lot but got a fresh lease of life in 2018 with a facelift. Yamaha’s Fazer 250 came in a bit later and then the Suzuki. While the Fazer is the least priced in this comparo, it also is in the least state of tune too. The Honda and Suzuki make the same amount of power but the former makes slightly more torque.
