The much awaited Suzuki Gixxer 155cc motorcycle will be launched on 10th August 2014. Bookings for the Suzuki Gixxer are underway, interested buyers can book the bike for Rs. 5,000 at any Suzuki dealership across the country. The first units of the bike will reach dealerships by the lzst week of July 2014, and will be delivered to customers immediately after the bike is formally launched in the market.
The Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Suzuki has struggled to make a mark in the Indian markets with their Budget bound motorcycles. The Gixxer was showcased at the Auto Expo 2014. Since then we have managed to lay our hands on some crucial details and images of the Gixxer.
Price: The Suzuki Gixxer is expected to cost in the range of Rs. 75,000 to Rs.80,000.
The Gixxer will be offered with the following paint options:
- Metallic Oort Grey
- Candy Antares Red
- Glass Sparkle Black
- Metallic Triton Blue
- and Pearl Mirage White
Suzuki Gixxers Specifications
Suzuki Gixxer will feature a single cylinder 155cc air-cooled engine with SOHC (Single Over Head Camshaft). Maximum power produced will be 13.9 BHP and peak torque will be 14 Nm. Air-fuel mixture will be supplied by a carburettor. The bike will be fitted with a 5 speed transmission.
The Gixxer does pack modish looks and trendy detailing. The digital instrument cluster, muscular fuel tank, triangulated exhaust tip and stylish alloy wheels will certainly manage to pull some crowd around it. The 17 inch black alloys will hold 100/80 tire on the front and 140/60 on the rear.
Dimensions of the bike are as follows: 2,050 mm in length, 785 mm wide, 1030 mm in height and 1,330 mm wheelbase.
The Japanese motorcycle will be launched in the market to take on heavy weights like the Yamaha FZ-16 and Bajaj Pulsar 150. Honestly, we do not see any standout feature which would want us to pick the Gixxer over the above mentioned duo, for example the FZ-16 has excellent handling, while the Pulsar 150 gives excellent power/fuel economy, If Suzuki really wants to make a mark it would needs its own identity, something which attracts prospective buyers because the Brand name after a point may not be enough even for their most loyal customers. Now we are in no way saying that it is a “bad” bike by any means, actually its specs match up to that of the FZ-16 at a very competitive price (estimated) but we wish that the Gixxer gave us something more and a better name wont be such a bad idea too.
