Suzuki GSX-R150 which takes the place of Gixxer SF in other Southeast Asian markets is being showcased at the ongoing 2017 Bangkok International Motor Show along with its race-prepped edition. The fully faired 150 cc motorcycle features noticeably different styling compared to its Indian counterpart.

Design is inspired by the latest high displacement GSX-R’s as evident from the edgier headlamp cluster and more expressive fairing panels. The disparity doesn’t stop there. Suzuki GSX-R150 also sports an additional cladding for fuel tank, more aggressive tailpiece with split seats and LED taillights, upward swooping exhaust canister, updated digital dashboard, and bolder choice of colors.
