SpecSheet Comparo - Yamaha Fazer Vs Suzuki Gixxer SF Vs Bajaj Pulsar AS150


It is no secret that most bike enthusiasts in India are fond of fairings on motorcycles. While fairings are mainly a functional fitment which improves a motorcycle's aerodynamics, many tend to view it as an aesthetic enhancement, which gives motorcycles a sporty look. The Yamaha Fazer was one of the first bikes in the 150cc segment to come with a semi-fairing. It looked beefier than the naked FZ16 that it was based on, giving the impression of a larger capacity engine than the 153cc unit it came with.  

Since its launch in 2009, the Yamaha Fazer had no direct rivals, and hence enjoyed the lion’s share of the sub-Rs 1 lakh faired-150cc niche. This year though, not one, but two manufacturers have launched bikes that tread right on the Fazer’s path. Enter the Bajaj Pulsar AS150, and the Suzuki Gixxer SF. While the Bajaj is targeted at the touring crowed, Suzuki is promoting the Gixxer SF as a sports bike. Again, just like the Fazer, both look like much bigger bikes than their engine capacity suggests, thanks to their fairings. Now let’s see how these three bikes stack up!
