The MotoGP edition brings the livery of Suzuki’s GSX-RR MotoGP motorcycle to the 2019 Gixxer SF. The model receives the blue paint from the GSX-RR bike along with Suzuki Ecstar decals on the fairing. The styling is further enhanced with contrasting graphics on the body panels and stripes on the wheels. The MotoGP livery and colour add a new charm to the 2019 Gixxer SF and make it even more desirable.
Speaking about the launch of the Gixxer SF MotoGP edition, Devashish Handa, Vice President, Suzuki Motorcycle India, said:
Suzuki Motorcycle India received an overwhelming response for the newly launched GIXXER SF series with lot of anticipation about the MotoGP colour. We are pleased to announce the launch of the same in Indian market today.
The MotoGP-inspired paint theme joins the existing palette that includes Glass Sparkle Black and Metallic Sonic Silver. The MotoGP edition uses the same engine and hardware as the standard model.
Propelling tasks are performed by the air-cooled, 154.9 cc 2-valve, SOHC motor with a fuel injection system that produces 14.1 PS of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of max torque at 6,000 rpm. The mill is linked to a five-speed gearbox. The braking setup of a single disc brake on both wheels is administered by the safety net of single-channel ABS.
Suzuki Motorcycle India has also confirmed that it will launch the Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP edition and announce its prices in August 2019. Similar to the Gixxer SF MotoGP edition, the quarter-litre Gixxer will also get the racing motorcycle-inspired paint and graphics. The MotoGP edition of the 250 cc model will carry a marginal premium over the standard bike that retails at INR 1,70,655*.
The engine specifications on the Gixxer SF 250 MotoGP edition will be similar to the standard bike. Paired to a six-speed transmission, the 249cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, SOHC engine with Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS) makes 26.5 PS at 9,000 rpm and 22.6 Nm at 7,500 rpm. The bike will come with dual-channel ABS.
