[Update] Suzuki Gixxer SF launched today and Priced at Rs 83,889/-, Will Also Be Offered In Special MotoGP Edition

The Suzuki Gixxer SF seems to be one of the most awaited bikes in the mass-market segment this year. Suzuki Gixxer SF is all set ready to be launched on April 7. First lot of the motorcycles has started reaching dealerships and now we’ve managed to sneak out its brochure.

Now the interesting aspect seen is that the bike will be offered in a special paint scheme from the word go and is likely to be priced above the normal variants. Suzuki wants to cash in on the popularity of MotoGP and grab the attention of enthusiasts.

The Gixxer SF remains almost identical to the Gixxer on which it is based, it weighs 4 kgs more than it which is due to the addition of the fairing, However, the weight increase seems negligible considering the Pulsar RS 200 weighs 20 kgs more than the Pulsar 200 NS on which it is based on! This would ensure minimal difference in terms of performance and the top speed might be higher due to the addition of an aerodynamic fairing. The bike sports some interesting elements such as LED tail lamps, adjustable rear mono-shock suspension and an exhaust which looks really different.

Powered by same 154.9cc, single-cylinder engine which generates 14.8 PS and 14 Nm, matched to a 5-speed gearbox. Performance should be identical to the street-fighter version and the sharing of parts and mechanicals will help Suzuki price the Gixxer SF more aggressively

The motorcycle would be offered in three regular colours which are – Blue, White and Black, there are rim stripes too. The MotoGP edition is based on the Blue colored bike and gets a few visual changes including Suzuki stickers on either side which runs under the tank. It will not get any mechanical changes to suit its name though.

In terms of specifications it comes into competition of Yamaha Fazer V2.0 but if full-fairing styling grips you, Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 and Yamaha YZF-R15 can also be taken into consideration. The Suzuki Gixxer SF will be the most affordable full-faired bike in India which gives it a huge advantage over its nearest competitor. However, these both bikes are way powerful and expensive as the SF will be retailed at approximately Rs 90,000 (ex-showroom)

Likely to be offered in Metallic Triton Blue, Pearl Mirage White and Glass Sparkle Black, Gixxer SF measures 2,050 mm in length, 785 mm in width, 1,085 mm in height and gets a wheelbase of 1,330 mm.
