The Suzuki Gixxer SF received the fuel injection technology last year in an attempt to improve the performance. Mechanically, both the 2017 Suzuki Gixxer SP and Gixxer SF SP remain same. These bikes continue drawing power from a 154.9 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that is capable of churning out 14.5 bhp of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. Transmission duty is done by a 5-speed gearbox and for braking duty both the bikes rely on disc brakes on both front and rear wheels.
