The Suzuki Gixxer matte black edition has been launched in Colombia. The 155 cc naked street fighter which has Indian as its primary production base has been on sale in the South American nation since last year. The matte black edition is aimed at keeping the product fresh and bring in a sales boost.
The new matte black edition receives glossy black ‘Suzuki’ decals on the fuel tank which certainly enhances the bike’s sportiness. There are no other visual differences compared to the regular version. The Colombia-spec Gixxer continues with rear drum brakes but we expect the disc brake variant to be launched there in the coming months.
The Gixxer is powered by a 155 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that breathes via a traditional carburetor and is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The motor dishes out 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.
The motorcycle is equipped with a front telescopic fork and rear mono shock. The 17-inch alloy wheels come shod with 100/80 – 17 and 140/60R – R17 tubeless tyres. Braking is taken care of by a front disc and rear drum. Suzuki India recently introduced a top-end variant with rear disc brake.
The Suzuki Gixxer matte black edition is priced at 7,350,000 Colombian pesos (around INR 1.62 lakhs).
