Bajaj Pulsar AS 150 vs Suzuki Gixxer SF photo gallery
We just stepped off Bajaj’s AS 150 and Suzuki’s Gixxer SF, after testing the two to find out which is best suited for India.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF is a truly sporty-looking motorcycle. The Bajaj Pulsar AS reminds us of larger-capacity adventure motorcycles.
Underneath its skin, the Suzuki Gixxer SF is essentially the same as the Gixxer. The Bajaj Pulsar AS is not equipped with the mechanicals required to make it a thorough adventure bike.
The really tall and see-through visor on the Bajaj Pulsar AS 150; a potent projector headlight illuminates the roads well at night.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF has fairing-mounted mirrors that work really well. The Gixxer SF’s fairing was designed in the same wind tunnel used for Hayabusa’s streamlined fairing.
The Bajaj Pulsar AS 150 gets digi-analogue instruments, a useful side-stand engaged sign, clock and a shift-warning light.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF has a fully digital console, displaying a clock and a useful shift- warning light.
The Bajaj gets bar-mounted mirrors and a hinged fuel-cap.
Both bikes get 12 litre fuel-tanks, no hinged fuel filler cap here.
Grips on the Bajaj are soft to touch and heavy bar end weights are provided too. Switchgear illuminated blue here.
Suzuki provides functional switchgear working precisely.
Bajaj provides a 240mm petal type and Brembo made disc brake here.
Suzuki provides a larger 266mm disc brake up front that has good initial bite. Both motorcycles do not come equipped with ABS braking.
Plush seat comfortable for longer distances, can however feel a bit uncomfortable around the edges.
Well contoured seat provides comfort for longer distances too.
155cc, single-cylinder and air-cooled engine pulls away from low down in its powerband, power tapers off rather quickly toward the top end.
Bajaj’s AS 150 has a 149.5cc, air-cooled engine, to get a move on, one really needs to get the engine spinning, with power coming out at higher revs.
Non-adjustable monoshock at rear, feels well thought out on the Suzuki.
Six-way adjustable rear monoshock is charged with gas. Good to absorb bumps and potholes.
Twin port exhaust with titanium finish on the Gixxer SF, which also absorbs heat.
Bajaj has neatly tucked away the Pulsar AS 150’s silencer under its engine.
