Suzuki Gixxer 150 to be launched in August! Launch date, Price and Details!

As Suzuki is desperate to make more presence in the Indian 2-wheeler market, they are all set to launch the new 150cc bike named as Suzuki Gixxer 150 in India on August 10. The name, taken from Suzuki's much reknowned superbike series GSX-R, is clearly put to use by the company in order to attract the customers by giving them a feel of being associated with a premium brandname. But not only the name, the bike surely looks much attractive in comparison with the models Suzuki have usually offered to Indian market till date. In fact, if you ask me, the bike has absolutely no issues with its looks unlike the rest of the Suzuki India's stable and is at par with the competition it will be facing in our market. The bike was already showcased by the Japanese automaker at Auto Expo 2014 in Delhi. It will compete against the like of Yamaha FZ 2.0, Honda Trigger, Hero Xtreme etc and will be offered at a price of around 73,000 INR.


 


















The bike will be powered with a 150cc single cylinder air-cooled engine that will put out 14PS of power and 13.4Nm of torque. It is mated with a 5-speed transmission whereas the other 150cc offering by Suzuki, namely GS150R, sported a 6-speed transmission. In order to meet the usual quest of mileage in Indian automobile scenario, Suzuki has come up with what they call as SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) which will ensure better fuel efficiency without making compromise on the performance front. The engine and the chassis are said to be engineered by the same team which worked on the legendary GSX-R series superbikes and have ensured superior performance levels. The chassis is kept light and stiff to aid handling and the engine is built from the scratch so as to offer significant advantages over the rivals.
















Talking about the goodies and gizmos, Gixxer 150 sports a mono-suspension at rear, disc brakes at front and drum brakes at rear, led tail lights, and a fully digital LCD type speedo console. The alloys are shod with 140/60-17 rubber at rear and 100/80-17 at the front. Other things like the muscular tank and the sporty exhaust end-can give the bike sporty and streetfighter looks.

At last, in our opinion Suzuki has finally managed to come with a good looking bike for the markets like ours and this bike seems t capable of giving Suzuki what they are working hard for: some good increase in market presence. What are your thoughts about it?
