Since its launch in September 2014, the Gixxer has experienced enormous success in the fiercely competitive 150 cc segment. The bike has become so popular that it has uplifted Suzuki’s brand image in the Indian two-wheeler market. Ahead of the festive season, manufacturers are looking to update their bikes and scooters to stay ahead of the competition. True to that statement, Suzuki motorcycles recently launched the updated Hayate. Now, the company has increased the appeal of the Gixxer by introducing new dual-tone colour schemes.
The Gixxer will be available in two dual-tone colour schemes namely, blue-white and red-black. Suzuki claims these colours are inspired by the company’s traditional racing colours. The new paintjob also includes new body graphics and matching side frame. In addition to this, the bike also gets clear lens indicator lamps. The Gixxer will be available in 4 single-tone colours including red, grey, blue and black.
Mechanically, the bike remains unchanged and continues to be powered by the same 155 cc, single-cylinder engine that churns out a peak power of 14.6 bhp @ 8000 rpms and has a torque output of 14 Nm @ 6000 rpm. The Gixxer is a fun bike to ride in the city and performs very well without compromising on fuel economy. We were very impressed with the Gixxer during our test ride. The Gixxer with dual-tone paintjob will cost Rs. 85,729 (On-road Delhi), which is about Rs. 1100 over a Gixxer with single-tone paintjob.
