Suzuki is working on an updated 250 cc parallel-twin engine which is supposed to comply with the stricter Euro 5 emission standards. The newly leaked patent images hint on the changes which will go inside the updated twin-cylinder powerplant.

The quarter-litre SOHC engine already comes equipped with a catalytic converter which is positioned underneath the engine bay. However, another catalytic converter has been placed closer to the exhaust ports and engine cylinder head.

Since the newly added cat-con has been placed closer to the exhaust ports, the pipes have been given a new design, merging mid-way, unlike before. Also, the patent images reveal that the new catalytic converter features two oxygen sensors which keep the exhaust gases in-check.
