Suzuki Motorcycles India unveiled a new Gixxer variant at this year’s Auto Expo and now the time for the said variant’s launch is at hand. Suzuki is gearing up to launch the new variant on 15th April. The new Gixxer variant will now sport a rear 240mm disc brake with single floating caliper to enhance the braking efficiency of an already capable motorcycle. Aesthetically, the bike looks identical to the current motorcycle but will feature new colour schemes and clear turn indicators similar to the ones on the Gixxer SF.
The bike will still be powered by the same 155cc, air-cooled single-cylinder carburetted engine making 14.8PS of max power at 8,000rpm and 14Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The engine is equipped with Suzuki Eco Performance (SEP) technology, which, the company says reduces mechanical losses and maximises combustion, leading to fuel economy figures of 63.2kmpl. Expect the new variant to be priced Rs 7,000-10,000 over the current Gixxer variants.
