Suzuki Gixxer Review

Suzuki Gixxer is Suzuki’s answer to the ever emerging 150cc segment in India. The bike has been based on the lineage of the GSX-R1000 series.

The motorcycle from the Suzuki stable is possibly the most perfect blend of power and style as seen by this segment. This ‘Street Sport’ motorcycle has been designed to turn the streets into a rider’s playground. Another striking design clues include things like a sporty dual muffler and a trendy, smartphone-resembling digital speedometer.

The beautiful looking Suzuki Gixxer is powered by a 155cc, single cylinder, air cooled engine with a five-speed gearbox delivering a very usable and linear 14.5bhp of maximum power. The bike will deliver a fuel-efficiency of 63.5km/l which should be over 55km/l in the real world scenarios. The bike, despite having a carburetor, delivers impressive power without compromising on fuel economy. The broad low-end torque and dynamic mid-range power for strong acceleration make sure that bike is ready to race from the time you bring it to life.

One look at the Gixxer and you know it has been designed or made with extreme love and good sense of purpose. The 12-litre fuel tank has been so neatly sculpted that it blends effortlessly with the design of the bike. The bike has no unnecessary fairings, the seat just gels well with the curves and doesn’t hurt the eye, body coloured grab rails and the LED tail lamps make sure it looks much edgier than the competition. The 1-2 exhaust makes it look not only sporty but also like a piece of art.

Commenting on the bike, Mr. Atul Gupta, Executive Vice President, SMIPL said, “Loaded with exciting equipment, power, handling and trusted Suzuki quality, the Gixxer will make a statement without saying a word. It is an overall mix of elegant styling, classy on-road presence and promising performance, and will attract young bikers to rev up and ride. We expect Gixxer to create a strong foothold for itself in the market.”

He added, “Suzuki is keen on providing youth-centric products for the Indian customers at a very competitive price. Our track record of new launches iterates Suzuki’s legacy built on the ethos of credibility along with advanced, unmatched engineering.”

Gixxer is available in 5 colour options – Metallic Oort Grey, Candy Antares Red, Glass Sparkle Black, Metallic Triton Blue and Pearl Mirage White at a price of Rs. 83,402 (On-road, Delhi).
