Fully-faired version of the Suzuki Gixxer has entered production and is all set to be launched in the country next month in April. We have got these exclusive images, which indicate that the bike would boast a ‘Suzuki’ decal at the sideways. The fully-flared Suzuki Gixxer is spied totally undisguised and it would be rivalling the Yamaha Fazer and Honda CBR 150. The spied full-faired Gixxer motorcycle would be unchanged mechanically and would continue to use Gixxer's engine.
Earlier, there were reports that it would be using the SLK moniker, and would be christened as 'Suzuki Gixxer SLK', but now it seems that they were merely rumors as fresh reports says that it is named as GSX150R. It would be slotted at the top position in the company's 150cc segment and would be the flagship offering in the segment by Suzuki in India.
The Japanese autogiant Suzuki had launched the Gixxer in September 2014 in the country and since then it has been performing fairly good with its sales volumes. It has helped the company tremendously as in January and February of thsi year, it registered a growth in sales by 20 percent as compared to the same months in 2014. Suzuki Motorcycle India is expected to price the GSX150R in a price range of Rs. 80,000-90,000 (Ex. Showroom).
Fully-faired Suzuki Gixxer would come loaded with the same Gixxer-fame 154.9 cc single-cylinder engine. However, Suzuki engineers might re-tune it to accommodate the additional weight of the fairing. The regular model of Gixxer weighs 135 kgs. and has a maximum power output of 14.8bhp at 8000 rpm and peak torque performance of 14Nm at 6000 rpm. It is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission.
