Suzuki Unveils Gixxer 150cc Bike, Launch In July [Live]


Suzuki Gixxer

A few days back, the Suzuki Gixxer was spotted in Noida and today the company has unveiled the product. 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 155cc 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. This 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 an all new 150cc, 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 (front suspension is telescopic forks). The front uses a disc while the rear uses 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. The bike gets a fully digital instrument cluster. Clearly the Suzuki Gixxer will compete with the Yamaha FZ and Honda CB Trigger.

Suzuki has just unveiled the Gixxer motorcycle but hasn’t revealed the horsepower or torque figures. We expect them to be slightly more than the GS150R which produces 13.8 BHP of power and 13.4 Nm of torque. The Gixxer will use a 5-speed gearbox (not a 6-speed unit like the GS150R) and will sit above the GS150R in Suzuki’s motorcycle portfolio. Expect the price to be marginally more than the GS150R. Suzuki seems to be following Honda, the GS150R will be sold as it is while the Gixxer will be a premium 150cc offering. Sales of the the Suzuki Gixxer will commence in July as the launch will happen in the same month. The bike will be showcased at the upcoming Auto Expo.

    Suzuki should have had the Gixxer a few years ago, would have taken the pulsars, unicorns and fzs a good challenge. Seems a little late for the 150cc competition.

      @Vikram Viswanathan: Absolutely agree with you. Wish this product would have in India 2 years back and helped Suzuki to resurrect their brand image as a Two wheeler manufacturer. The only gross part here is the CC paradigm which will play a vital role. I wish some day they launch a 250+ CC bike and with some improved A.S.S which will make their Japanese rivals (Honda/Yamaha) think twice before coming with new products.
      But indeed a fresh looking bike after a long span. Hope people buy aplenty :)

          Looking at the styling of the recently launched inazuma i dont see buyers would actually dream of owning it rather they would opt the Gixxer. Perhaps, suzuki should have launched the Gixxer with 250 CC mill and priced it aggressively and that could have changed the game altogether. People moving towards higher CC actually consider the styling as a major factor which influences them. Fact being the Inazuma with a better engine would rather be overshadowed by the puny 150 CC of this gixxer no matter how conventional it may be.

    I say exciting ! even though I’m a very power hungry guy, I do give importance to a reliable purpose built engine. This gixxer 150 seems to have one. plus the looks are totally killer. Still I don’t understand why these japs cannot come up with a stronger engine with more CCs.
    Please steal the complete spec sheet from the launch site where all the information about max bhp and maximum torque is mentioned xD.

      The GS150R is a very good bike, we loved the motorcycle when we reviewed it last year but Suzuki doesn’t market itself properly. Just getting Salman Khan at the launch won’t sell your product.

      @Rohit Rajani: Not just the headlight but the tank too. From which angle did you find it to be KTM look alike? No ways, revisit the pictures and you will come to know. But it bound to happen, some similarities are unavoidable sharing common segment (naked). But that should not take the credit away from Suzuki for coming up with such a fresh looking bike and that too after a long time.

    suzuki India proved themselves, that they can come up with beautifully proportioned bike, speaking designwise along with a decent engine. i dont expect huge power figures, but seems this product will gel elegantly to Indian market. i am blown away by the sculpted curvaceous tank and stubby exhaust. but, my question is, why suzuki doesnt do this more often?

    I own the gs150r. The best thing about gs150r is the 6th gear and its digital speedometer with gear indicator also. And it is a strongly built bike with excellent suspension. The only problem with gs150r is its weight, maybe it should have been 5 kg lighter, but gs150r has powerful engine. Dont feel bike weight while riding.

    Having 6th gear is not a problem in city riding. It is a big advantage on long roads like ring roads and highways. I think all bikes should have 6th gear. But this new bike seems to have different engine and only 5 gears. Launch is still far away. I think it will get rear disc brake. Good styling, but pillion seat is too high.

    • KoKa SparK January 28, 2014, 2:47 pm

      in 6th gear GS150R is not much responsive to throttle, suggesting it’s a overdrive/cruising gear for long hauls; comfortable low end one-up tourer. For city rides/commutes I guess five gears suffice as you don’t get to cruise more than minute or two.
      PS: I own a GS150R for the last 3 years.

    Extremely happy. Surprising to see my all time favorite brand’s finest bike. Somehow Suzuki has impressed me after long time and this bike made me forget inazuma’s pricing. I think the shogun days are arriving back. But it’s bad to give the name “gixxer” to this bike. The gixxers are a league and imitating their name is not healthy.

    I noticed 850ml on the engine case, what does it suggest against predominant 1ltr engine oil 150cc motorcycles?
