The front and rear tyres are of size 100/80-17 and 150/60-17 respectively.

The made-in-India Gixxer has started off strongly in the sub-continent, rivaling the Yamaha FZ FI V2.0 series. The brawny street fighter will be positioned above the GS150R and derives certain design cues from the famous GSX-R1000.

The motorcycle stands out with a scultpted fuel tank, meaty tyres, twin exhausts that are housed in a single canister, body colored grab rails and a minimalistic headlamp design.
