India launch of Suzuki Gixxer 300
Both Suzuki and Haojue are the motorcycles manufacturer exclusively for the market of China. However, some of them get exported to around 70 nations around the world. India is having a high demand for 300cc bikes and so they can bring the new model that is Suzuki Gixxer 300 or the Suzuki GSX-S300 in India.
Price of Suzuki Gixxer 300 in India
However good the bike may be, but the selling of the bike will entirely depend on its price. The bike must be available to the customer at their affordable price. If Gixxer 300 comes to India then it will compete against KTM 390 Duke, Dominar 400 and BMW G310R. The price of the Gixxer 300 is expected to be below Rs 3 Lakh. However, Rs 3 Lakh will be an ex-showroom price.
The design of the new Suzuki Gixxer 300 appears similar to the Suzuki GSX-S1000. The face of the bike is very much aggressive in looking. The LED headlamp makes the bike look more beautiful along with DRLs (LED daytime running lights). The fuel tank of the bike is sculpted with tank shrouds. The raised clip-ons along with LED tail lights and split seats add beauty to the bike. However, we cannot forget the wedge-shaped exhaust which increases the sporty look of the bike. It is having 17 inches alloy wheels and 10 spokes. The bike is having an instrument cluster which is fully digital.
The Suzuki Gixxer 300 will be utilizing 298cc. It is having 4 valves, parallel twin cylinder, and a liquid cooled engine. It is the nothing but the rebored version of the 250cc motor. It is having the capability of delivering 24.4PS at 8,500 rpm and a torque of 22 Nm at 6,500 rpm. However, the torque and the power figures are yet to be revealed for the 298cc unit area of Haojue. The bike will be using a 6-speed unit for the purpose of transmission.

Brakes play a major role in the case of bikes so here the new Suzuki Gixxer 300 is providing their customer with a good braking mechanism. Its braking mechanism consists of petal disc front which is 298mm and is also having a small rotor brake at the back. The ABS is a dual channel across the model line-up which is standard quality. The USD forks ups front take care of the damping duties. It will also be having rear suspension units which are having adjustable monoshocks.
