Carries over its engine from the regular Gixxer without any changes.
Ahead of its launch scheduled for April 7, the brochure of the Suzuki Gixxer SF has leaked revealing some specifications and color options of the faired motorcycle. Dealers have started accepting bookings for a token amount of INR 5,000.
The Gixxer SF will continue to be powered by the 154.9 cc single-cylinder engine producing 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Suzuki's engineers seem to have made no changes to the powertrain. The gearbox is a 5-speed unit.
Braking comes from a single disc at the front and a drum brake at the rear.
Even the suspension - a telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear - is carried over from the Gixxer. Whether or not Suzuki has fine tuned this setup for the added weight of the fairing (the regular Gixxer weighs 135 kg) remains to be seen.
Suzuki lists features such as LED taillight, the adjustable rear suspension, the muffler cover, clear lens indicators, the digital instrument cluster and the 'aerodynamic' fairing for the Gixxer SF. Upon launch, the Gixxer SF will be available in three colors including White, Black and Blue.
The faired Gixxer is likely to cost INR 10,000-15,000 more than the standard Gixxer which is priced at INR 83,549, on-road, New Delhi.
