Suzuki Inazuma Highlights
The Suzuki Inazuma is the first shot by Suzuki in the quarter liter segment. Seeing the CBU lineup of Suzuki, many biking enthusiasts were expecting something exceptionally fast from the stable of Suzuki, which can battle out with the likes of Honda, KTM and Yamaha equally well. But somehow, this Suzuki lags behind on those expectations. Starting with the styling, the bike fails to put up a first good impression for many young enthusiasts, as the looks are a bit dated and disproportionate and the bike looks good from certain angles only. Though the bike will suit the taste buds for those who want a plain jane, good feel factor from their ride. Also, the performance figures are not something which could set up the segment on fire, considering the present day rivals do this at a much better way. What are the upsides though, is its butter smooth engine which is vibe free at any rpm it is destined to run, it simply performs exceptionally well in the refinement department and can be perfectly billed as ultimate sports commuter. There is an elegance to its power delivery reminiscent to the parallel twin motorcycles, which none of its competitors offer here in Indian market. The rider as well as pillion comfort and the luggage carrying capability of this motorcycle is exceptionally well, which is the numero uno demand of a sports tourer. Where the rest of its competitors are manic, brute and mad like an adrenaline junkie, this Suzuki feels calm and composed with a ride quality which is unseen in any of the bikes within the 300cc mark, not even the cruiser motorcycles. This is the trio advantage of comfort, ride quality and refinement that the mature riders will love to have in their bike, and the Suzuki Inazuma is the motorcycle they should seriously look for. But the biggest and craziest problem Suzuki Inazuma will face in India is the pricing. Being a CKD product and a parallel twin motorcycle, it is not at all cheap. At Rs. 3,10,100 ex-showroom Delhi, it is a stupendously expensive motorcycle. But what you get at this price is a superb, vibe free and non-animalish sports commuter which feels built to last. And this is what the unique trait of this Suzuki is, which puts it in a totally different superior league of its own, even with its other shortcomings of design, performance and price.

Being one of the big players at the international stage, Suzuki’s stint in India is not that happening as in other countries. Sure, their CBU Superbikes such as Hayabusa, GSX-R and Intruder are bringing in fame for this big Jap player, but where they are losing a stroke is the mass market. The commuter bikes of Suzuki are not bringing in numbers as they would have expected, are losing behind in the game from the other players in the Indian market. To make the matters even more difficult, their absence in the faster growing entry level superbike segment cannot be avoided where the bikes like Yamaha YZF-R15, KTM Duke series and Honda CBR series are building up a chunk of sales for their respective manufacturers. To make up for this, Suzuki has launched its much awaited 250cc motorcycle, the Inazuma GW 250, in India. It is big, seems brute and promises to deliver class rivalling performance. The bike has proven its credentials in the European and Japanese markets with its thunderous credentials of being a sports commuter, and thus living up to its name, as ‘Inazuma’ means lightening in Japanese. To spruce up the segment, Suzuki has equipped this bike with a parallel twin, liquid cooled motor, thus sensing us with a superb performance. This configuration slots it between the Honda CBR 250R and Kawasaki Ninja 300. The Suzuki Inazuma is built in China for the global markets and in India, the parts are imported and assembled in Suzuki factories here. This means that it is also the first CKD product for Suzuki in India. Though arriving in the scene a bit late, but with the Inazuma, Suzuki is trying to revive up its image and make its position in the browning 250cc segment. Can it delivers as it promises? Let’s find out.

Safety and Features
Though the Suzuki Inazuma's pricing is at a higher side, the bike doesn't come up with premium safety features, except the front and rear disc brakes doing the duty at both the wheels. The absence of essential safety features for a 250cc motorcycle, such as ABS, is a bit disappointing.
