It is powered by the 154.9 cc air-cooled single-cylinder SOHC 2-valve engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The carbureted version of the motor produces 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm at 6,000 rpm.
The rest of the features on the SF FI include the same mono-halogen headlamp, fully-digital instrument console, single-tube handlebar, 12-litre fuel tank, front disc brake, single-seat, split grab handles, dual-port exhaust, alloy wheels, 100/80-17 front tyre and 140/60R-17 rear tyre (both tubeless).
The Suzuki Gixxer SF FI will be the flagship Gixxer 155 variant as it will be offered only as the MotoGP Edition and it may have a rear disc brake as standard.
