The patent images that could show Suzuki’s GSX-R250

THESE patent images could show Suzuki’s forthcoming parallel-twin GSX-R250, according to an Indonesian bike site which dug them up.

Predicted by a Japanese bike mag earlier this year, the GSX-R250 looks set to be Suzuki’s entry into the performance sub-500cc market, taking on the likes of Yamaha’s YZF-R3 and Honda’s long-awaited CBR20RR.

It’s likely to get a capacity-hike before coming to Europe, just as the 321cc R3 started out as the 249cc R25 in Indonesia.

The Indonesian site seems to think the images show the new GSX-R250, as opposed to the Asian-market GSX-R150, because of a larger rear sprocket. 

Honda said there were no plans to bring the CBR250RR to Europe at its Indonesian launch last month but that doesn't rule out the possiblity of a bigger version for our shores, with rumour suggesting it could be as much 350cc
