Gixxer 155 and Gixxer 250 engine
Latest price hike for Gixxer motorcycles is purely due to rise in input costs. No new updates or features have been introduced by the company. Gixxer 155 and Gixxer SF 155 get their power from a 155cc SOHC, air cooled motor. It is capable of generating 13.6 ps of max power at 8000 rpm and 13.8 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed transmission.
Gixxer 250 twins are powered by a 249cc SOHC, oil cooled motor that makes 26.5 ps at 9300 rpm and 22.2 Nm at 7300 rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Gixxer 155 series and 250 series are equipped with telescopic front forks and swing arm rear suspension. They have disc brakes at both ends. Single channel ABS is offered with Gixxer 155 series whereas the larger 250cc siblings get dual channel ABS.
Just a few months back, Suzuki had announced a recall for Gixxer 250 twins. It was based on customer feedback, many of whom had reported experiencing excessive vibrations. Upon investigation, it was found that the vibrations were due to incorrect placement of balancer shaft in the engine.
A total of 199 units were covered in this recall program. These were manufactured between the period from August 12, 2019 to March 21, 2021. Users had reported that fixing the issue required just a couple of hours of repair work at the service centre.
