Suzuki Motorcycles India has issued a product recall for select units of the Gixxer 250 and Gixxer 250 SF due to an engine vibration issue. This is a voluntary recall and only affects 199 units of the quarter-litre models which were manufactured between 12 August 2019 and 21 March 2021.
Per the notice posted on the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) website, the affected models may suffer from an increased engine vibration due to incorrect positioning of the balancer drive gear.
The template for marking the matching positions was not used by a supervisor, thus causing the issue. The vibrations may damage two of the six tail lamp mounting lugs, although it is highly unlikely to affect the function of the brake light. Suzuki Motorcycles India will fix the affected models free of cost, and the repairs could take a maximum duration of two to three hours.
