The new stringent BS6 emission norms will come into effect across India from the 1st of April 2020. Indian motorcycle brands are offering huge discounts, and attractive schemes on the outgoing BS4 models in order to clear their inventory for the new BS6 models. Recently, Suzuki launched BS6 Gixxer and Gixxer SF in India on the 4th of March 2020 with expectations of Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 launch in the coming days. Before the launch of Gizzer SF 250, Suzuki dealerships across India are offering heavy cash discounts and other benefits on the outgoing BS4 Gixxer SF 250. Presently, there is a cash discount of around Rs 10,000-15,000 is being offered by some Suzuki dealerships on this particular model.
The point to note out here is that the discount being offered is on the on-road price rather than the ex-showroom amount. Thus the on-road price for BS4 Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 is around Rs 1.97 lakhs while the ex-showroom price in Delhi stands at Rs 1.70 lakhs. Dealerships are also dolling out other benefits like exchange offers that include an extra discount of Rs 7,000 which can availed for changing your old bike. It’s not just the exchange offer benefits for the consumers, the interested buyer can also look at various financing options to pick up their beloved motorcycle. In addition to these, the prospective customer can walk into a dealership and pick up the bike without paying any down payment or processing fee. Free insurance worth Rs 12,000 is also being offered by many dealerships.
Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 launched last year in May has been a popular addition to the 250cc segment in India. It is powered by a 249 cc single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine generating a maximum power output of 26.13 bhp and 22.6 Nm of peak torque.
