As we reported earlier, the fully faired avatar of the Suzuki Gixxer 155 will be called as Gixxer SLK. The upcoming Suzuki Gixxer SLK will soon be available for the Indian audience and thanks to the good folks at GaadiWaadi, we got a glimpse of the near production ready version of the motorcycle. The new Gixxer SLK, however, will not be world’s apart in terms of looks from the Gixxer 155 that’s already available for sale. The only visible addition is the introduction of a full fairing. The Gixxer SLK also misses out on a clip-on handlebar.
The Suzuki Gixxer SLK is not likely to receive any mechanically upgrades as well. So expect to see the same 154.9cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve motor that is found on the Gixxer 155. The motor is capable of churning out 14.8 PS of power at 8000 RPM and 14 Nm of torque at 6000 RPM and comes paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The Suzuki Gixxer 155 is an fun motorcycle to ride and with added fairing, bigger wind shield and comfortable riding stance, the Gixxer SLK should be a good motorcycle, not only for city rides, but also for long highway journeys.
