Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Could be ready for launch in 2015.

A fully faired motorcycle based on the Suzuki Gixxer has been spotted testing for the first time, by Motorbeam’s reader Mr. Atul. To be positioned above the naked Gixxer, the motorcycle would take the fight towards the Yamaha Fazer FI V2.0.

The fully faired Gixxer gets a trademark Suzuki headlamp.

From what can be observed, the disguised fairing houses a shield-shaped headlamp which has become Suzuki’s latest brand identity. The comprehensive fairing covers the entire engine, leaving only the transmission case exposed.

The rest of the elements like fuel tank, tailpiece, silencer, wheels, tyres, braking system, etc., appear to have been carried over directly from the Gixxer. The body colored split grab rails of the Gixxer has been ditched in favor of a single silver colored element and the fully faired bike is expected to offer a clip-on handlebar.

Just like the FZ and Fazer duo, the new Suzuki motorcycle is expected to borrow its 154.9 cc single-cylinder engine from its naked sibling, however, considering that the engine is not exposed directly to the atmosphere, it remains to be seen if Suzuki will install a liquid-cooling system.

In the Gixxer, the same motor produces 14.8 PS (14.59 bhp) at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

From this spyshot it is apparent that Suzuki is planning to follow up the Gixxer’s success with a faired version sometime next year.

Competitors: Yamaha Fazer FI V2.0, Honda CBR150R
Expected Price: INR 80,000-90,000, ex-showroom
Launch Date: 2015
