Buying a Suzuki Gixxer

20th Jul 2016 3:00 pm

Is the Gixxer a pillion-friendly bike and will the performance be affected by a heavy passenger?

I’m interested in buying the Suzuki Gixxer, but looking at the bike, I feel it’s small. I would like to know if it is a pillion-friendly bike, and whether or not the performance would be affected with a heavy passenger.

AAA Carrying a pillion will affect performance on a small-capacity motorcycle such as the Suzuki Gixxer, and the heavier the pillion, the further the drop in performance will be expected. The Gixxer is a comfortable motorcycle for pillions, but to be sure, you can always visit a showroom, with the pillion and sit on the bike to check whether you are both comfortable, before finalising on purchasing the motorcycle.
