Suzuki Motorcycle India has announced the recall of two of its most famous sportbikes, the Gixxer 250 and the SF250. For this, the company has announced a voluntary recovery. Both bikes are known in the market as a naked street fighter and both have similar problems.
According to reports, there was a vibration problem in the engine of these bikes. This is because the company has recovered 199 of them. The bike is tested free of charge by the company and, if needed, parts of it are also replaced. In this recall, the company added bikes manufactured between 12 August 2019 and 21 March 2021.
What is the real reason:
It is said that due to the balance in the drive gear of these bikes, the engine is experiencing vibration. The company posted on the Society of India Automobile Manufacturers Association (SIAM) India’s voluntary recall information page claiming that the problem was caused by the supervisor not matching the template mark for the balance drive gear. This causes more vibration in the balancer drive gear engine.
The company, in its profile, stated that it will not affect the bike’s performance. However, due to high vibration, the tail light mount can break. Suzuki Motorcycle India will inspect and repair the vehicles for free, for which there is no charge.
On both bikes, the company used an oil cooled engine with a 249cc capacity single cylinder overhead cam single cylinder. It produces 26bhp and 22.2Nm of torque. This engine comes with a 6-speed gearbox. Both bikes are very popular among youngsters for their special naked look.
