A brief introduction of the Suzuki Gixxer’s faired twin
Story: Piyush Sonsale
Suzuki Motorcycles India have launched the Gixxer SF fully faired bike in the country. However, we’ve already ridden the bike at Suzuki’s global headquarters in Japan and here are a few things you should know about it.
The Gixxer SF is based on the Gixxer naked bike launched by the company last year. So apart from the fairing and a few cosmetic changes, it shares the engine, chassis and most of the cycle parts with its naked sibling.
The155cc four-stroke single cylinder air-cooled engine and the five-speed gearbox haven’t undergone any changes for the SF. Power output stands at 14.8 PS at 8,000 RPM and it generates a peak torque of 14 Nm at 6,000 RPM. The engine is refined and fuel conscious but we did feel it should have had a little more punch.
