Engine Performance and Utility
-Engine design – outline
The 248cm3 parallel-twin engine that powers the GSX250R/ABS underwent thorough analysis and optimization to maximize low- to mid-range torque and provide a powerful ride that features ease of control. The overall efficiency achieved also helps realize class-leading level of fuel economy*1 and clean performance that satisfies the stringent Euro 4 emission regulations. With a full tank of gasoline, the GSX250R/ABS has a riding range of approximately 480km*2.
Displacement 248 cm3
Bore x Stroke 53.5mm x 55.2mm
Compression 11.5 : 1
Maximum power 18.4kW/8,000rpm
Maximum torque 23.4Nm/6,500rpm
Emission level Euro 4
The cam profile for the GSX250R/ABS delivers maximum acceleration performance at speeds between 20km/h to 90km/h, as this is the range that is used most often.
As an additional benefit, the cam profile also suppresses noise generation to deliver a smoother, more pleasant ride.
The honing pattern used for the cylinder barrels maintains lubrication for the pistons in a manner that helps minimize any loss of performance due to friction.
The cylinder head adopts roller type rocker arms that minimize friction loss.
-New intake valve design
The port sections on the intake valves are designed to optimize airflow into the combustion chamber. This helps achieve a high level of thermal efficiency for improved performance and reduced emissions.
Thin, low tension piston rings were adopted to reduce friction and the shape of the piston ring grooves was also optimized.
Adopting the use of projected tip spark plugs speeds up the rate of combustion. This improves response, especially when the throttle is not open far, and also improves fuel economy.
Optimization of the oil pump
