Suzuki doesn't have a great success story in the Indian automobile industry eventhough they have tasted a decent amount of success with the GS 150R and their 125 cc scooter 'Access 125', which had a fair amount of sales among youth and middle class.
At the 2012 Auto Expo, Suzuki looks certain to finally take the big decision into the sub-250cc performance motorcycle segment. It has only recently unveiled the Inazuma 250 to the UK audience, and it undercuts both, the Ninja 250R and the CBR 250R too, on the pricing front.
The Inazuma 250's styling is inspired from the B-King (the Hayabusa-based monstrous naked) and while the looks can be described as conservative at best, it's not one bit offensive. And then there's the small matter of those twin tailpipes-an India first, at least in the non-import class-which, despite the weight gain, is bound to become an instant hit with boy racers.
The seat, a single unit, has a very prominent step and the handlebars are upright clip-ons, thus confirming it's touring/commuting ambitions. Suzuki hasn't yet revealed numbers but we're expecting it to be a mild-mannered 24-28 bhp motorcycle with the emphasis being more on low/mid-range performance.
