Powering the Gixxer is a 155 cc single-cylinder air-cooled carbureted engine which is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The power and torque figures stand at 14.8 PS (14.59 bhp) and 14 Nm respectively.
The motorcycle features fully digital instrument console and LED taillights. The telescopic forks (front) and monoshock (rear) are the suspension equipment.
