  • Deliveries are expected to commence towards the end of July.

The  2019 Suzuki Gixxer has been launched in India at Rs 1.02 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), a premium of Rs 11,271 over the older model it replaces. The overall design language has been given a revision along with the addition of new features. The most notable addition is the fuel-injected, BS6-ready engine as seen in the recently launched Gixxer SF. But, interestingly, the engine produces slightly higher power in the naked Gixxer than its faired version. Bookings have now commenced for a token amount ranging between Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,000, depending on the dealership, with deliveries expected to commence after two to three weeks.

On the cosmetic front, the 2019 Suzuki Gixxer features a new, muscular fuel tank with sharp extensions, an LED headlight, a full-digital instrument console and a sleek tail section. Other notable changes include a split seat which replaces the single-piece unit on the outgoing model and the addition of a tyre hugger. 

 

Powering the bike is the exact same 155cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, air-cooled motor that's available on the 2019 Gixxer SF. It dishes out 14.1PS at 8,000rpm and 14Nm of torque at 6,000rpm, and is mated to a 5-speed transmission which has remained unchanged. 

In terms of underpinnings, the bike uses a 41mm telescopic fork and a monoshock. Braking is handled by a disc at either end, with single-channel ABS. Its 17-inch wheels come wrapped in a 100/80-section front tyre and a 140/60-section radial tyre at the back. The seat height, meanwhile, has gone up to 795mm (up by 15mm) and the motorcycle is now 4kg heavier. That’s not all - the bike is 30mm shorter, 15mm wider and 5mm taller than the outgoing model too.

 

There are three colours to choose from - black, silver and blue-black dual-tone. In terms of rivals, the 2019 Gixxer goes up against the Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZ FI Version 3.0 and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.
