Suzuki Gixxer SF ABS spotted at a dealership; new brochure leaked
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF ABS has been spotted at a dealership. A new brochure scan has also been leaked and indicates that both the fuel-injected and carburetted variants get ABS. The bookings for the bike has commenced, and the token amount ranges from INR 5,000 – 10,000, depending on the dealer. Expect Suzuki to launch the bike in the coming weeks. The Gixxer SF ABS is expected to cost INR 1.05 lakhs, on-road Delhi.
The Gixxer SF employs a 154.9cc single cylinder SOHC, twin-valve engine which generates 14.8 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Interestingly, both the fuel-injected and carburetted variants produce the same amount of power and torque.
Fuel injection helps in better cold starts, better throttle response and cleaner emissions. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission.
41 mm telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear handle the suspension responsibilities. A 100-section front and 140-section rear tubeless tyres wrap the 17-inch alloys. For anchorage, the bike uses disc brakes on both ends. Expect Suzuki to launch the bike with a single channel ABS to keep the cost in check.
