The BS-VI Suzuki Gixxer has the same design and style as the BS-IV Suzuki Gixxer. It features a full-LED compact headlight, LED signature taillight, sharp tank scoops, muscular fuel tank design and split seats. It is one of the best-looking naked motorcycles in its segment. It also comes with a fully-digital instrument cluster and a sporty exhaust with dual outlets.

Powering the BS-VI Gixxer is the same 155 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which now complies with the more stringent BS-VI emission norms. Its power output has been reduced from 14.1 PS to 13.6 PS and the torque output has also been down, from 14 Nm to 13.8 Nm. The transmission, however, is the same 5-speed unit.

The Gixxer SF has retained its key features like the aerodynamic fairing, sleek full-LED headlight, clip-on handlebar, sporty 6-spoke alloy wheels, etc. post the BS-VI transition. As in case of the Gixxer, the maximum power and the maximum torque of the 155 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine have reduced from 14.1 PS to 13.6 PS and from 14 Nm to 13.8 Nm respectively.
