Based on the existing variant of Gixxer 155 cc motorcycle, the new Suzuki Gixxer SF has arrived at a showroom in Ahmedabad. Speaking to the dealer, he confirmed that he has started accepting bookings for an advance payment of Rs 5,000.
New Suzuki Gixxer SF is powered by the same single cylinder 154.9 cc air cooled and carburatted engine which is seen on the Gixxer naked motorcycle. This engine generates 14.8 PS power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm torque at 6,000 rpm. It is mated to a five speed transmission. It is also a fuel efficient engine, thanks to Suzuki Eco Performance (SEP) technology. Aboard the Gixxer, this engine delivers 63.5 kmpl, and is expected to deliver a similar figure for Gixxer SF.

The chassis and suspension setup too remains unchanged. Front gets telescopic suspension, whereas rear has swing arm mono suspension. Tyre size remains unchanged 100/80/17 front and 140/60/17 rear. Fuel tank is also unchanged, with capacity to hold 12 litres of fuel. Instrument cluster also remains unchanged. For braking, front gets single disc while rear gets drum brake. To add a little more dash of sportiness, there is contrasting alloy wheel rim tape sticker.
Basically, its the same bike, but with a full front fairing and new decals, which gives the Gixxer SF a more sporty appeal. Considering that the Gixxer 155 is priced at about Rs 83,473 on-road in Delhi, expect the SF variant to be about Rs 5-7,000 more expensive. More details will be revealed on 7th April, when the bike is officially launched.
