Suzuki launches Gixxer 150 in India
A few days back, the Suzuki Gixxer was spotted in Noida and today the company has announced the launch.
The Suzuki Gixxer evoked mixed reactions and the company claims the bike's engine and chassis have been developed by the engineers who designed the GSX-R series of motorcycles.
The Gixxer is Suzuki's new flagship 155 cc motorcycle which is positioned as a sporty offering in the segment.
The bike gets a light and stiff frame with an all-new engine utilising SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) technology.
The engine offers broad low-end torque and dynamic mid-range for strong acceleration, Suzuki claims.
Suzuki hasn't shared many details yet.
The Suzuki Gixxer is powered by a 150 cc, single-cylinder, SOHC engine which uses air-cooling and a carburettor to feed fuel.
The bike gets both electric and kick-start, with the rear using a monoshock suspension.
The front brake uses a disc while the rear, a drum.
The tyres are quite wide, with the front unit being a 100/80/17 section and the rear being a 140/60/17.
Clearly, the Suzuki Gixxer will compete with the Yamaha FZ and Honda CB Trigger.
