The 2018 version of Suzuki Gixxer gets it all for a 150cc bike. It is good looking, has good handling and riding capability and mainly offers the important Anti-Braking System feature. A lot of other bikes in this segment do not receive this safety feature. The Gixxer sports a 155cc SOHC engine, that also runs in the Gixxer SF and Intruder. Features of this bike include an engine kill switch, front and rear disc brakes, ABS, a fully digital LCD instrument cluster with digital tachometer and a sporty-dual exhaust system. These features, we think, are good enough for this segment. Gixxer comes in 3 variants – Front Disc, Front and Rear Disc and ABS. The prices start at Rs 77,015 (ex-showroom Delhi). Let’s move on to specs, features, images, mileage and more details of the bike.

2018 Suzuki Gixxer Competition
150-160cc bikes segment is an ideal one. While most of the youth, working class as well as older generation, prefer this segment. Mainly, because of decent features offered and priced under Rs 1 Lakh, most of them prefer it. Currently, it faces competition mainly from TVS Apache RTR 1604V, Honda CB Hornet 160R, Yamaha FZ-S and Bajaj Pulsar NS160.
Apache offers some good features with better riding quality, however, it misses out on the ABS. Both of them are priced nearly and except ABS, have no much differences in the features list. CB Hornet 160R looks a bit bulky and dull, but it also offers ABS on its list. Also, it gets the Honda name added to it. FZ-S misses out on a lot of features but offers good riding quality and the Yamaha’s acceleration. The last contender, Pulsar NS160, also misses out on a lot of features and does not offer ABS too. But Bajaj’s grunty yet frugal engine and better mileage save the day.
