The Suzuki GW 250 that we have talked about a couple of times now comes with a name.  It has been called the Inazuma.  It must mean something, probably in Japanese or Spanish but it isn’t a name that rolls of your tongue easily and happily.  Aeons ago the GW 250 was touted for a launch during the festival season of this year and that has gone by without any news of the GW250 launch in India.  Now that the bike has a name maybe it will be launched during the Auto Expo which is coming in January of 2012.  At least, that is the hope that we nurture.  The engine of the Inazuma is the same twin cylinder liquid cooled 250cc churning out a modest 26 PS.  The Kawasaki Ninja 250 R which is a similar parallel twin engine churns out 33 PS while the Honda CBR 250R which is a single cylinder engine churns out 26 PS.  We are not even sure if Suzuki has plans for the Inazuma in India and we do not know what configuration of power, torque and fuel efficiency that Suzuki has in mind if it is decided that the Inazuma will actually be launched.
