By autoX Editorial | on July 9, 2018

The refreshed Gixxer SP series comes with a brand new colour. 

Suzuki Motorcycle India has introduced the refreshed versions of its Gixxer SP and Gixxer SF SP motorcycles. The former costs ₹87,250, while the latter is priced at ₹1 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi).

With this new update, the two motorcycles come dressed in a new gold/black colour combination with a new SP 2018 emblem. There are also updated graphics on the front cowl and the fuel tank.

The SP versions of both the Gixxer and Suzuki Gixxer SF come with ABS as standard. Otherwise, both bikes continue to draw their power from a 155cc, single-cylinder engine that’s good for generating a maximum power of 14bhp (carburetted)/14.6bhp (FI) and peak torque of 14Nm. The motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

Announcing the launch, Mr Sajeev Rajasekharan, Executive Vice President, SMIPL said, ‘Since its launch in India in 2014, the Gixxer brand has metamorphosed into a synonym that embodies Suzuki’s attributes of quality, styling and performance. It is a true reflection of our DNA in developing performance motorcycles of superior quality and backed by cutting-edge technology. It’s our constant effort to reinvigorate the Gixxer portfolio with new freshness and value. We are confident that with the new 2018 special edition series, this exciting ride is set to continue.’

The Gixxer and Gixxer SF have also emerged as the highest-ranked in Motorcycle Upper Executive segment for 3 consecutive years on the benchmark of Initial Quality Survey (IQS), and for the second-time after 2015 in the Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study by JD Power India for 2017.
