Added in: Features

The 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF has finally been launched at a price of INR 1,10,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The SF 155 seems to be more aerodynamic and aggressive than the old Gixxer SF. This new bike is pretty identical to its elder 250cc variant. However, this similarity is restricted to the overall design only. On paper, the new Gixxer SF 155 is still quite similar to its predecessor in terms of chassis setup and engine specifications. Have a look at how the new model compares against its old version.
