Suzuki enters the premium 150cc motorcycle segment with the new Suzuki Gixxer 155. Can it stand tall to its legendary name?
The more we ride the Suzuki Gixxer and the closer we look at the design of the 155cc motorcycle, one can’t help but admire the engineering behind the bike... albeit a few corners cut to save cost.
Suzuki Motorcycles now has a new bike in the 150cc class. It is called the Gixxer SF and with its full fairing and better aerodynamics, it is all set to challenge the likes of the 150cc Yamaha Fazer. For more details on the price, specifications and pictures of the Suzuki Gixxer SF can be had at ZigWheels.com
Launched in 2014, the Suzuki Gixxer comes across as one of the most attractive looking bikes in the 160cc segment. The design looks striking thanks to the smart triangular headlight set within a bikini fairing, the stylishly sculpted 12-litre fuel tank with good knee recess that offers good thigh support. The way the rear design is executed with the body coloured grab rails almost merging into the panels that pack in a small triangular shaped LED taillight further adds to its looks. The carved out seats also blend well with the overall design.
The Suzuki Gixxer is powered by a 154.9cc, single-cylinder air-cooled and carburetted engine that comes mated to a five-speed gearbox. The Gixxer produces 14.8PS of peak power at 8,000rpm and 14Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. Suspension duties are managed by telescopic front forks and a hydraulic monoshock absorber at the rear. Braking is managed by a disc brake up at the front and the rear. It also proves to be quite light, tipping the scale at 135kg (kerb)
TVS Apache RTR 160: The Apache RTR 160 was launched to take on the Bajaj Pulsar 150, which was the only rival then. A lot has changed over time and there is a lot more competition in the market today. The RTR now seems to be losing its charm as the rivals feel a lot more modern in terms of refinement, quality and value for money.
Yamaha FZ V2.0: The V2.0 delivers in style, build quality, refinement and handling. It is also the only bike in the segment to get fuel injection, but that has also upped its price out of this league. It is a strong performer and a proper upgrade over the previous version.
Bajaj Pulsar NS 160: The Pulsar NS 160 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance, ride and handling, save for refinement. The new NS 160 is a worthy contender and makes a strong case for itself in this highly competitive 160cc segment.
Honda Hornet 160: In the form of the CB Hornet 160R, Honda now finally has a competitive offering in the premium 150cc motorcycle segment. It looks the part with its sporty styling and chiselled lines. Performance of the motorcycle is also good with respect to its rivals and it offers decent fuel efficiency as well. It seems that Honda has got it right the third time around.
The Suzuki Gixxer is a worthy street bike with a distinct design and enviable refinement levels. It also undercuts the competition on the price front, which makes it a good value for money proposition. Amongst the five models stated above though, it is the recently launched Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 that makes a strong case for itself as it is not only equally refined but is addictive with the kind of package it offers in terms of performance and handling. It is also the only motorcycle here with an oil-cooled engine.
