Aggressive look and awesome pickup
The styling isn’t what you’d call revolutionary, but there’s no denying it’s an attractive bike. While most entry-level Japanese motorcycles look like scaled-down versions of their liter-class flagships, the new Gixxer SF 250 takes more hints from the last gen GSXR-1000 than the current one. It is particularly evident when you look at it from the front - an all-new LED headlight, which almost looks like a flared-out trident, is certainly the most conspicuous design element. The unit has got a slightly elevated midsection with either end extending into the sides of the fairing. Meanwhile, the bottom of the headlight tapers and extends off the bike marginally, forming a beak-like appearance, and is surrounded by a small chin-spoiler that seems to be inspired by MotoGP machines.
