Gixxer latest price hike makes it even costlier than before. This is the first price hike on the 2020 models of about 1.70 percent in four months…
After unveiling them at the Auto Expo in February this year, Suzuki officially launched the new 150cc Gixxers in March. Apart from Bharat Stage 6 compliance, both the Gixxer siblings – naked Gixxer and full faired Gixxer SF got no new features in this transition. Power and torque were also down by a wee bit.
With price hikes of around 10-12 percent, these 150cc motorcycles were already the costliest motorcycles in the segment (baring the Yamaha R15) and Suzuki has increased their prices further. Here is the price increment in the following table..
Gixxer Latest Price
|Variant||Launch Price (Mar 20)||Latest Price (July)|
|Gixxer SF MotoGP||₹1,22,900||₹1,24,970|
The quantum of price increase in about four months is roughly ₹2050 on all the three models respectively which corresponds to an increment of 1.70 to 1.80 percent.
The naked Gixxer’s price hike comes at a time when it has seen two new direct competitors recently – Hero Xtreme 160R and 2020 Honda X-Blade. Both of them are placed lower than the Suzuki.
There appear to be no other changes to any of these models and they continue to be propelled by the same 155cc, SOHC, air cooled, fuel injected engine capable of producing 13.6 PS of peak power at 8000 rpm and 13.8 Nm of max torque at 6000 rpm.
