Along with the 2019 GSX-R150, Suzuki has introduced the 2019 GSX-S150 naked roadster in Indonesia. Most of the updates that were seen on the GSX-R150 are seen on the GSX-S150, including Keyless Ignition System (optional), new LCD speedometer backlight, hazard lamp and easy start system.
ABS is still not available on the Suzuki GSX-S150, not even as an option. Another feature available on the fully-faired model but not on the naked roadster is a golden front brake calliper. There are two configurations on sale, as seen in the table below:
|Configuration||Price (on-road) – IDR||Converted Price – INR*|
|Shutter Key||IDR 26,750,000||INR 1.29 lakh|
|Keyless Ignition System||IDR 27,250,000||INR 1.31 lakh|

The GSX-S150 has the same mechanical and hardware specifications as the GSX-R150. It is powered by a 147.3 cc single-cylinder, water-cooled, 4-valve, DOHC engine with fuel injection tech. This motor delivers 18.9 hp (14.1 kW) of power at 10,500 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. Single, petal-type discs on the front and the rear wheel deliver the stopping power. A monoshock at the back and conventional telescopic forks at the front perform the shock absorption tasks.
The styling of the GSX-S150, sans the fairing design, is nearly identical to the GSX-R150. The naked roadster uses tank shrouds to get a muscular look. The GSX-S150 uses a flat, single-piece handlebar instead of clip-on units on the fully-faired model for upright and city-friendly ergonomics. Apart from that, all design details are identical on both motorcycles.
The 150 cc GSX duo rides on cast alloy wheels that are wrapped in 90 / 80-17 section front, and 130 / 70-17 profile rear tyres. The fuel tank capacity is identical too, and both motorcycles can carry up to 11-litres of petrol. The fully faired model, however, tips the weighing scale at 131 kg (dry), while the naked roadster is a kilogram lighter at 130 kg (dry).
Suzuki has no plans to bring the GSX-S150 to our market. Here, there will be an updated Gixxer 155 arriving later this fiscal. The updated Gixxer 155 will share its mechanical specifications and feature list with the 2019 Gixxer SF (155) that was launched earlier this month.
