The 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF gets cosmetic updates but remains the same mechanically.
In recent days, Suzuki has seen a drop in sales of the Gixxer SF model. This was due to the fact that the rivals (not direct) of the Gixxer SF were better equipped. For instance, the Yamaha R15 came with a crazy sharp front fascia with LED headlamps. Adding to that, the R15 came with a sleek looking instrument cluster and also the step-seat of the bike gave it a much more sporty look.O bviously, people were pulled towards this Yamaha bike rather than the dated design of the Gixxer SF.
Looking at the success of the R15, Suzuki decided to tweak the looks of its 150cc faired motorcycle and images of the updated version have leaked. This 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF gets a slew of changes and the most noticeable is the new all-black paint scheme. Starting from the rear, the bike retains a few design elements from the previous model, but we get a new mudguard that is attached to the swingarm, something that we see on the Pulsar NS 200.
Moving towards the side of the bike, the most noticeable change is the updated seat design. The old single-unit seat has been removed and replaced with a sporty looking split-seat set-up. The tank also gets a more aggressive and muscular design to it and the faring features a new decal design that replaces the old Suzuki decal. Finally, when you move to the front, you see the new razor-sharp headlamp set-up that we believe is an LED unit which provides the much needed intimidating look to the bike.
However, the 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF is still powered by the same reliable 150cc SEP engine. The 155cc, SOHC, 2-valve, air-cooled motor produces 14.5 BHP at 8000 RPM and 14 Nm of torque at 6000 RPM. The mill is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and gets a fuel-injection system. The bike is held by telescopic front forks and a monoshock unit at the rear. In terms of braking, the Gixxer comes with disc brakes on both ends and a single-channel ABS unit that works on the front wheel.
