After showing the world just how capable and fun to ride its Gixxer motorcycle is, Suzuki will launch a new version of the motorcycle in India, the Gixxer SF, on the April 7, 2015. The Gixxer that was launched last year, went on to win the Bloomberg TV-Autocar India Motorcycle of the Year award, and for good reason.
The new Suzuki Gixxer is expected to be powered by the same Suzuki-built four-stroke, 155cc, SOHC and CV carburettor-fed powerplant. On the go, it clearly feels tuned to delight in the circus of urban Indian traffic.
The new Gixxer puts out a healthy 14.6bhp at 8,000rpm and 1.43kgm of peak torque that’s delivered nice and low in the powerband, at 6,000rpm.
The new Gixxer’s upright riding position is comfortable, and the saddle is well padded and roomy enough for riders as tall as six feet too. A single disc brake makes way upfront, whereas a drum brake does duty at rear.
Stay tuned for more news on the new Gixxer.
