The Japanese manufacturer is yet to divulge the technical specifications of the Gixxer, though reports say that the bike will be powered by a single-cylinder engine displacing around 155 cc, capable of producing power in the range of 14 to 14.5 PS with a torque output in the vicinity of 14 Nm. The gearbox would be a 5-speed manual unit. Also, the Gixxer is expected to get the Suzuki Eco Performance (SEP) technology which should ensure a good fuel efficiency.
