Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL), a subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, has launched the Gixxer SF, a fully faired version of its flagship motorcycle -Gixxer. The vehicle is priced at Rs 83,439 (ex-showroom Delhi).
Launching the motorcycle, Atul Gupta, Executive Vice President, SMIPL, “Young India is driving growth in the 150 cc bike category, a segment which has witnessed consistent growth in the motorcycle market. Suzuki is looking at expanding its presence and appeal among young customers with products that address their desire for style, performance and mileage. We have won customer hearts with the Gixxer. We are confident that the Gixxer SF too will thrill young buyers across India and further strengthen our market position.”
The motorcycle has aerodynamic full sport fairing which has been developed in the same wind-tunnel where the legendary Hayabusa, GSX-R and MotoGP machines are developed. The fairing has been designed to give maximum wind protection to the rider, reducing turbulence and drag, thereby delivering great aerodynamic efficiency. This directly results in higher down force for stable braking and lower drag for better handling at higher speeds. The pinstripe on the wheels gives it a sharp, edgy look, guaranteed to appeal to all motorcycle lovers. It comes with a new key mascot to instil pride of ownership while the 155cc engine with a five-speed gearbox remains the same of Gixxer, which was launched last year.
To commemorate Suzuki’s return to MotoGP racing in 2015, a special edition Gixxer SF is also being launched, which will sport Suzuki’s ’Racing Blue’ colours (Metallic Triton Blue). Gixxer SF will also be available in Glass Sparkle Black and Pearl Mirage White.
