” The calm before storm “ this saying goes with Suzuki as we see pin-drop silence in Suzuki’s camp. We had observed Suzuki’s outline of Tokyo Motor Show and there were 8 below models that Suzuki was to display.
- Gixxer 250 (Also called as Jixar 250)
- Gixxer SF 250 (Also called as Jixar SF 250)
- V-Strom 250 ABS
We observed a lot of Suzuki’s focus on lower displacement motorcycles like Gixxer 250, GIxxer SF 250 in the Tokyo Motor Show. However, Suzuki’s website is updated with there 2020 lineup including 2020 Hayabusa that has caused a stir for quite a while.
Infact we had to admit when Suzuki had filed its patent the motorcycle world and Hayabusa fans were quite excited. Katana was launched a while ago and we don’t see that in 2020 lineup so is V-Strom 250 ABS. Although V- Strom 250 was launched in Japan in the month of August 2019.
The Gixxer 250 and Gixxer SF 250 are more likely for the Asian market and we see them on Suzuki’s Indian Website. 2020 VStrom 1000 was revealed recently in their third teaser that displayed the full-blown new Strom 1000.
In fact, before two weeks Suzuki Ecstar’s MotoGP team tested the new prototype by Guintoli and Suzuki’s Team Manager Davide Brivio also confirmed.
There were also talks during the Tokyo Motor Show about Suzuki building a para twin-engine for lower displacement motorcycle that could match MT-07 or new Ninja 650.
The big question that still remains unanswered is whether Suzuki is in the process to develop a turbocharger V- Twin project the subject that has lot of attention.
Or do we see naked higher displacement livery from Suzuki that is an ideal match to the naked monsters like Z-H2, Streetfigher V4 or Brutale 1000 Serie Oro.These models that are effectively changing the game and not to forget Kawasaki now has 250cc that has four cylinders stacked in it.
Well Suzuki is mum about it.
