Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Here are images of the 2017 Suzuki Gixxer with new two-tone alloy wheels from a Bengaluru dealership, courtesy International Business Times.
The Suzuki Gixxer is currently available in three colour schemes: Pearl Mira Red & Glass Sparkle Black, Metallic Triton Blue & Glass Sparkle Black, and Glass Sparkle Black. The model here features the Pearl Mira Red & Sparkle Black colour combination. Its alloy wheels also have the same two-tone colour scheme. It is unknown at this point if the Metallic Triton Blue/Glass Sparkle Black finished model is also available with the two-tone wheels.
The 2017 Suzuki Gixxer is 2,050 mm long, 785 mm wide and 1,030 mm tall, and has a 1,030 mm-long wheelbase. The naked street bike has a seat height of 780 mm and offers a ground clearance of 160 mm. It is powered by a 154.9 cc air-cooled engine that develops 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. There’s a 5-speed transmission to channel drive to the wheel.
The 2017 Suzuki Gixxer is available in rear drum brake and rear disc brake variants. The rear drum brake variant is priced at INR 78,712 (ex-showroom Bengaluru). The Gixxer rear disc brake variant is priced at INR 81,817 (ex-showroom Bengaluru).
The two-tone alloy wheel option is exclusive to the rear disc brake variant. It is priced at INR 90,900 (ex-showroom Bengaluru), as per IBT’s report. The premium for just two-tone alloy wheels seems exorbitant, and the chances are that the reported price is on-road.
Expect Suzuki to make an official announcement shortly.
