Suzuki Motorcycles today have launched the new for 2019 Gixxer. This popular 155cc street bike now comes with a number of changes, akin to the ones seen on the Gixxer SF. Priced at INR 1,00,212, ex-showroom, Delhi. The Gixxer is essentially the naked version of the Gixxer SF. Customers can choose between 3 colours – Metallic Sonic Silver & Glass Sparkle Black; Glass Sparkle Black and Metallic Triton Blue & Glass Sparkle Black. This brand new motorcycle would be competing against the likes of the Yamaha FZ-FI, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V FI ABS and the Honda CB Hornet 160R, all of which are in a similar price range.
The 2019 Suzuki Gixxer comes with a new LED headlamp, which appears to be borrowed from its faired sibling. Moreover, the taillights too are LED illuminated.
