By

Earlier this year, during the Delhi Auto Expo, Suzuki motorcycles showcased two new variants of its 150cc performance bikes- The Gixxer and the Gixxer SF. The Gixxer is one of the most important bikes in Suzuki’s line-up as it competes with the Yamaha FZ for the much coveted performance segment leadership. Both the bikes get minor feature upgrades to stay competitive in this ever growing segment.

Suzuki has introduced a rear disc brake variant of both the naked Gixxer and the fully gaired Gixxer SF. In addition to this, the Gixxer SF now comes with EFI or Electronic fuel Injection which claims to improve throttle response and overall performance of the bike. The rear disc brakes are a welcome addition to the Gixxer.

The company claims that the mileage will also improve as a result of fuel injection. Suzuki has also announced that these performance bikes will be available in two new colours- Metallic Lush Green / Glass Sparkle Black Dual Tone (Gixxer) and Pearl Mira Red/Matt black (Gixxer SF). Other than the above mentioned additions, the mechanicals of these new bikes remain unchanged.

The Gixxer is currently one of the best bikes in the 150-160cc segment. Suzuki has played  it safe by not making any modifications to the exterior of the bike. Instead, the Japanese manufacturer has only added some crucial features which makes the bike more appealing than before. The Suzuki Gixxer is priced at Rs. 79,726, whereas the Gixxer SF is priced at Rs. 87,343 (Both Ex-showroom Delhi). This is an increase of about Rs. 2500 from the standard rear drum variant. Stay tuned for full review of the all new Fuel injected Gixxer SF.
