2019 Gixxer 150 launch may be on the same date of Gixxer 250 or some time later…
Update – SCOOP – Suzuki Gixxer 250 Leaked
It is well known that Gixxer 150 range will go through a comprehensive makeover and we believe it will be a new-generation model, with comprehensive changes and not just a minor upgrade. It is also known that Suzuki is ready with the Gixxer 250 and 20th May, well, be its first unveiling. We have already shared as many as seven sneaking bits about the motorcycle few hours back. Here is a link to that story.
In this story, let us reveal something on the 2019 Gixxer 150 as well. According to our source, the new Gixxer 150 will not only share its branding but also its looks with the elder sibling Gixxer 250. Also, he discloses that the 20 May 2019 event may also see one or two more product unveilings along with the Gixxer 250. These M-A-Y include the new Gixxer 150s (the naked as well as the faired ‘SF’ variant).
Suzuki is not expected to launch a naked version of the Gixxer 250, at least for now. This echoes with the teaser image they have shared with the media (which sneaks a faired motorcycle). The new Gixxer 150 may also get LED headlamps and tail lamps. Also, since they will adorn family changes, expect part sharing between the two motorcycles. What mechanical changes will the 150s get is not known.
Suzuki has already announced that this year they have two major focus points – increase in reach through new dealerships and enhancement of product portfolio with ‘premium’ motorcycles and scooters. These new Gixxers (both 150 and 250) will be a part of the same strategy. Also, Suzuki better be good with the new 150cc Gixxers, Hero is already out there to poach into your share with the new Xtreme 200S!
