With high BHP and less weight, the Suzuki GSX-R150 surely leads in the performance battle leaving behind the R15 and CBR150R.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 was unveiled at the Indonesia Motorcycle Show in Jakarta along with its naked version, the GSX-S150. Both the bikes belong to their Indian siblings, the Gixxer and the Gixxer SF. However, only the engine capacities are similar, all the other specifications have a major difference.
Recently, the exact power figures of the full faired Suzuki GSX-R150 were revealed, and we are left impressed. The overall performance is going to knock out its 150cc rivals, which are the Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR150R.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 has been powered by a 147.3cc water-cooled fuel-injected single-cylinder DOHC engine. It is capable of producing 19.17 PS at 10,500 RPM and 14 Nm of torque at 9000 RPM. Comparing it to the Yamaha R15, which produces a power of 17 PS at 8500 RPM and 15 Nm of torque at 7500 RPM, the GSX-R150 surely leads to that of the Yamaha competitor. The same goes for the comparison between the entry level Suzuki and the Honda CBR150R as the latter produces 18.5 PS at 10,500 RPM and 12.66 Nm at 8500 RPM.
If we have to take the comparison further, the GSX-R150 weights only 126 kgs (dry) which is around 10 kgs and 12 kgs lighter as compared to the R15 and CBR150R respectively. The weight reduction obviously results in a performance boost. Other features that the GSX-R150 possess are a digital instrument cluster, LED headlamps and keyless ignition.
The chances of the Suzuki GSX-R150 being launch in India is quite uncertain as the Gixxer siblings are already gaining good numbers.
