Suzuki Motorcycles India has silently updated its website with the new 2019 Gixxer 150 that was spotted recently at the dealerships
Suzuki Motorcycles India has silently launched the 2019 Gixxer 150 at Rs 1 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Suzuki has updated the website with the new Gixxer 150 and added the city wise price list as well. The brand recently launched the all-new Gixxer SF and the Gixxer SF 250 in India and now this new version of their street-naked Gixxer has been introduced.
The new Gixxer is priced Rs 11,822 higher than the outgoing model and competes against the likes of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Yamaha FZ-S, Bajaj Pulsar 160NS and Honda CB Hornet 160R in India. Ahead of the launch itself, the new Gixxer 150 was spotted at various dealerships alongside the old version in all the colour options – an all-black, all silver and Black with Blue.
In terms of design, the new Gixxer is inspired by the bigger Gixxer SF 250 with an identical LED tail lamp design and a chiselled fuel tank. There are new tank shrouds with updated Gixxer graphics. The biggest visual difference, however, is the new headlamp cluster which is an LED unit in oval shape. The seat height has been dropped by 5mm to 795 mm and it carries the same fuel tank capacity at 12 litres.
Other design changes include a new rear tyre hugger, split seats, blacked-out alloy wheels with a red stripe and a familiar dual muffler which gets a chrome finish. There’s also a new LCD instrument cluster which has been carried over from the new Gixxer SF. The cluster now has white backlight as against the orange backlit seen on the previous version.
Mechanically, the new Gixxer 150 is powered by the same 155 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine producing 14.1 PS of power and 14 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission and is offered with fuel injection. In compliance with new emission norms, the engine will be BSVI compliant before the deadline kicks in.
