Soon after the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, the 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF (155) has leaked online. It could be launched along with the bigger quarter-litre model on the 20th of this month.
The photograph of the brochure shows how much change the Suzuki Gixxer SF (155) has gone under with the MY2019 update. It has received a sharper, full-LED headlight that looks similar to that of the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250. The digital console could have a new backlit in the MY2019 model.
The muscular fuel tank is in the same design as before, while the saddle has a sportier, split setup. The outgoing model, for reference, used a single-piece seat. The split saddle design will also give better access to space under the pillion seat. The tail section has also received styling tweaks and features a new LED tail light. The rear blinkers continue to occupy the area near the number plate holder. Unlike the old model, the new model has a pair of reflectors.
The twin-outlet exhaust design with a chrome tip and heat shield has remained unchanged. The alloy wheels have also been carried over from the old model. The suspension setup is also the same: conventional telescopic forks and a monoshock at the front and back respectively.
Anchoring power comes from single disc brakes on both wheels, while the safety net includes a single-channel ABS. The quarter-litre Gixxer SF, on the other hand, uses dual-channel ABS.
Mechanical specs are not likely to change, and unless Suzuki surprises us with a BS-VI upgrade early on, the Gixxer SF will continue to use a 154.9 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that churns out 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. This engine comes paired with a five-speed gearbox.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF is currently priced from INR 98,076 (ex-showroom Delhi). The MY2019 update will likely bring a minor price bump.
