Suzuki has been busy developing new products for Indian market and the highly anticipated Suzuki Gixxer faired version has just been launched in the country. It maybe noted that first, Suzuki decided to play the gatecrasher to the refreshed FZ’s party by launching the Gixxer 155 and now, the new bike, just like its streetnaked sibling, will target a Yamaha product – the Fazer in this case. Quite obviously, it will be to the Gixxer what the Fazer is to the Yamaha FZ16 and the FZS. The new motorcycle has gone on sale under the Gixxer SF moniker and would be more of a Fazer rival than a R15 adversary. Here, in this report, we will take you through all the important details of the latest Suzuki motorcycle in India. We also have a set of spy images of the new motorcycle. Check them out!
The highly awaited Suzuki Gixxer SF motorcycle has been launched at INR 83,439
In essence, the new Suzuki motorcycle is nothing but a Gixxer + a full fairing. As can be seen in the images, the bike’s full fairing is home to a shield-shaped headlight, which is a design feature of the latest Suzuki motorcycls. Other than this, the bike remains largely unchanged and shares its fuel tank, tailpiece, exhaust, tires, alloy rims and brakes with the Gixxer. However, another difference that we can spot here is that while the Gixxer gets body-coloured split grab rail arrangement, this motorcycle boasts of a single-piece unit that is painted in silver. Also, in all likelihood, the bike will come with clip-ons.

No surprises here! The new motorcycle shares its engine with the Gixxer and hence, is powered by the same 154.9 cc single-cylinder engine that powers the donor model. For the Gixxer SF, this engine pumps out a maximum power of 14.8PS @ 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 14 Nm @ 6,000 rpm, and comes mated to a slick shifting five-speed manual transmission.
