Just days after Suzuki launched the ABS-equipped Gixxer S-F, the bike manufacturer has presented new ‘SP’ variants of its fully faired Gixxer SF (with ABS and Fuel Injection) and Gixxer naked. They are priced at Rs.99, 312 and Rs.81, 175 respectively (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). In comparison, the standard Gixxer SF FI and the Gixxer (rear disc brake) cost Rs.98, 928 and Rs.80, 121 respectively. The SP variants get an orange-black dual-tone paint scheme and features ‘tri-colour’ body graphics with ‘SP’ decals on the cowl and fuel tank.
Changes on the new variants are purely cosmetic and they remain mechanically identical to the standard bikes. The SP variants use the same 14.9hp, 155cc, single-cylinder engine as that on the Gixxer and the Gixxer SF. This engine comes with a five-speed gearbox. Declaring the presentation, Sajeev, EVP, marketing and sales, Suzuki Motorbike India, said, “We are happy to say the latest Limited Special Edition variants of the Gixxer SF, with Anti-lock Breaking System and Fuel Injection; and the Gixxer. The SP editions stay committed to our promise of offering riders a blend of exceptional performance, sporty looks, and a pride of ownership.”
