Well i am the 1st buyer of sf 250 motogp in my state.There is no better bike than sf 250 in the quarter litre sportbike segment.This bike is solely responsible for uprooting honda cbr from the indian market.As i have owned a cbr 250 also, I can easily say sf 250 is much better.The engine is smoother n more refined, Looks much better than cbr n ktm rcs which look too bad after the bs6 update.Only r15 v3 is close to the looks but v3 is ridiculously expensive as a 150 cc bike.Coming to the performance, It is gonna be 2 yrs now from the date of purchase n this bike never had any major or minor breakdown apart from the battery issue in lockdown.It can be easily used for your daily city rides.With a ground clearance of 165 mm, It absorbs the bumps smoothly.N on a track or even on highway, you can touch 150 easily on the speedometer.I have even gone to the beach side of my state riding it for 4 hrs.N have not felt any pain.With the stock tyres of mrf revz, It is the best bike as rcs also come with the same stock tyre now after the bs6 update n r15 v3 n even ninja 300 have mrf zappers as stock tyres which will last for hardly 2 yrs.The only bike better than it is rr 310 which has become a dreambike after the bs6 update but the only reason i didnt buy it was the unavailability of the blue colour.Finally, I must conclude that my biggest satisfaction came when my mom could sit on the sf 250 comfortably that she could never do on the cbr for 6 yrs.
Quite an all-rounder, but hard-core off-road won't be so good. Really good tourer. Maintenance is very affordable as compared to other 250 cc bikes. Vibrations are there, but not soo bothering ones. I'm happy with its performance because, in the low end, it feels like Yamaha Fz post-4000 to 5000 rpm everything changes. It has a strong linear-pull. Handling is very good, the suspension is set to medium, so it's not too firm or too soft which makes the handling so much better. The front brake is really good, but the rear lacks a lot of bites, but if we use both front and rear breaks together. The bike comes to a stop very fast. I'm owning this bike for 1 year and 3 months. The build quality is very good. The fit and finish of the switches are really good. It's quite an underrated bike.
The best part about this bike is the price segment, Not too costly and not too cheap. Better in performance than cheaper bikes and a bit lacking from costlier ones. Maintenance is 1000 rupees for 5k km and mileage depends on the rider but the least this bike gives is 30.This means the total cost of maintaining this bike over 5 years is cheaper than what you would spend on your riding gear and accessories and coolant price of other bikes. The spares are not readily available but will arrive after ordering. This bike is exported to Japan, Russia, and other eastern countries. Suzuki has to improve the visor and also the dealership and service network badly. Their exit may be caused if they don't get alert.
Driving experience on this bike is very awesome and adventurous.This bike is best touring machine and sports bike.I like this bike very much.Many people think this bike is uncomfortable for for long ride but this is wrong this bike is very comfortable for long rides.As sports bike this bike has very good ground clearance.This bike also had good sitting posture.About engine the engine of this bike is well refined and not vibrating engine.In this 250cc segment this bike is one of the best bike.And mileage of this bike is very much better than other bikes in this segment.Once again the suzuki gixxer sf 250 is awesome bike.
I have recently brought this bike performance wise its wonderful the engine is unique in the way it performs in mid range tractibility is amazing and then the pull to the top end. I usually drive not more than 70 to 80 kmpl it stays between 35 to 50 maximum time and the mileage i am getting is 25 to 30 kmpl.Seating comfort is nice too no pain whatsoever loved it the led front ones are very bright 👍 styling is good but could have been more fantastic overall it's been a great bike for me.
