Suzuki Gixxer SF launched, costs NPR 2,76,900 – Nepal
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Made in India and exported to Nepal.
VG Automobiles Pvt. Ltd., the authorized dealer of Suzuki motorcycles in Nepal, has launched the Suzuki Gixxer SF; the faired version of the regular Suzuki Gixxer commuter launched in September 2014. The Gixxer SF is priced at NPR 2,76,900.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF features an ‘aerodynamic fairing’ for a sportier, MotoGP-inspired design. Apparently, Suzuki claims that the Gixxer SF’s panels were developed in the same wind tunnel used for their performance bikes like the Suzuki Hayabusa, GSX-R and MotoGP machines.
It measures 2,050 mm long, 785 mm in wide, 1,085 mm high and has a wheelbase of 1,330 mm. It comes equipped with a 12 liter tank, has a 160 mm ground clearance, and weighs 139 kg, which is 4 kg more than the regular Gixxer. Exterior colors include Pearl Mirage White, Glass Sparkle Black and Metallic Triton Blue.
While it has the looks of a performance bike, the engine is sourced from the regular Gixxer. It packs the same 154.9 cc air-cooled, carburetor-fed, single-cylinder engine capable of 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. It is paired to a 5-speed gearbox.
The Gixxer SF has a telescopic fork in the front and 7-step adjustable monoshock at the rear. For braking, the Gixxer SF relies on a single disc up front and a drum brake for the rear wheel.
Other salient features include maintenance free 12V, 3Ah battery, an LED taillight, clear lens indicators, a digital instrument console with gear shift indicator and a twin exhaust system.
