The 2019 Suzuki Gixxer 155 (facelift) has been spied completely undisguised, hinting an imminent launch in India. The motorcycle was most likely photographed at a warehouse.
The Suzuki Gixxer 155, like its fully-faired sibling, the Suzuki Gixxer SF, will receive dual-tone paint with the facelift. The unit seen in the spy shot here features dual-tone black and blue paint. The black colour is visible on the front fender, fuel tank and the rear panel under the pillion seat. The blue shade is seen on top-centre of the fuel tank, tank shrouds and on the pillion grab rail. The tank shrouds enhance the muscular styling of the motorcycle. The 155 cc model will miss the engine cowl that will be seen on the Suzuki Gixxer 250.
The front-end gets an oval-shaped, full-LED headlight with a grey mask. The front number plate mount is visible above the new headlamp. The cockpit will share the instrument console with the Gixxer SF, although the steering duties will be performed by a tall-set handlebar that will deliver upright, city-friendly ergonomics. Everything following the fuel tank is identical to the Gixxer SF and the naked roadster gets split-style seats, dual pillion grab rails and LED tail lamp at the back.
Mechanical specifications, too, will be identical to the Gixxer SF and the 2019 model will use the 154.9 cc single-cylinder air-cooled, SOHC, 2-valve, fuel-injected motor that makes 14.1 PS of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of max torque at 6,000 rpm. This engine will be paired with a five-speed transmission.
Apart from a few tweaks such as an engine cowl and different alloy wheels, the quarter-litre Gixxer will carry all the styling cues from the new Gixxer 155. Mechanical specifications of the Gixxer 250 will include a 249 cc single-cylinder 4-valve, SOHC, fuel-injected engine with Suzuki Oil Cooling System that will deliver 26.5 PS at 9,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. The 250 cc engine will be paired with a six-speed transmission.
The new Suzuki Gixxer 155 and the Suzuki Gixxer 250 will carry a relatively lower price tag than their respective fully-faired siblings. For reference, the new Suzuki Gixxer SF 155 and the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 retail at INR 1,09,870* and INR 1,70,655* respectively.
