As we had told our readers earlier, the Gixxer 155 sports a 154.9 cc SOHC air-cooled engine that produces 14.8 PS at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The manufacturer claims a class-best fuel efficiency figure of 63.5 kmpl! Now even if the bike returns 50km to a litre, this Gixxer will have all the other 150cc bikes a lot lot worried…

This Suzuki will complete primarily in the premium 150cc segment against Yamaha’s FZ series while also encompassing the likes of Honda CB Trigger, Hero Xtreme, TVS Apache RTR 160 etc.

Gixxer gets a 5-speed gearbox (looses one cog in comparison with sibling GS150R) and the fueling duties are performed by a carburetor. Like FZ, Gixxer also gets a fat 140/60 rear and 100/80 front tyres, both 17 inchers. At 135kgs, it also has a pretty impressive power to weight ratio and should be a ‘fun’ to ride bike. It gets a 12 liters fuel tank and has a ground clearance of 160mm and a seat height of 780mm.

We’ll be bringing a road test review of Gixxer soon…keep tuned!
