The skid plate for the Suzuki Gixxer is priced at INR 1,600.

The skid plate protects the exhaust downtube and the cat-con (the catalytic converter chamber) beneath the engine on the Suzuki Gixxer which is susceptible to damage when the motorcycle is ridden over high speed bumps or similar obstacles. The company has started providing this skid plate as an aftermarket fitment and it will not be offered as a standard fitment on a new Gixxer.
