The two new 155cc bikes from Suzuki, Gixxer and Gixxer SF are the Indian subsidiary’s flagship products. Made in India, and exported around the world, including Suzuki’s home country Japan, the two are jewels in the crown of Suzuki Motorcycles India. Post their launch, the duo has helped the company continue posting growth in sales.
Of the two, the Gixxer 155 naked bike was first launched, back in 2014. Then came the Gixxer SF, a fully faired version of the same motorcycle in April this year. Surprisingly, being the brand’s flagship here in the country, both the variants did not feature rear disc brake, even as an option. But, that will soon change as Suzuki Gixxer rear disc brake variant has been spied on test.
Designed by the same engineers who designed the GSX-R series, both Gixxer and Gixxer SF are powered by the same 155 cc single cylinder petrol engine. This engine generates 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Price of the Gixxer naked variant starts from INR 84,634 while that of Gixxer SF starts from INR 94,067. All prices are on-road, New Delhi.
The addition of rear disc brake will surely bring cheer to many aspiring buyers in the 150 cc motorcycle category. Expect the rear disc brake variant to cost about INR 2,500 more once launched in October next month. More details will be revealed once the bike is launched.
