I have been owning this bike since 2015 and has done almost 66000kms on it. Since then I have been using this bike as my city commute and not just that, I even used to take it for some occasional highway rides as well. 1. Comfort This bike is one of the most comfortable in its segment. The riding posture of this bike is straight and handlebar is a bit on farther side but it's not uncomfortable at all. Suspension are very plush they absorbs almost every kind of bump or potholes. The seat doesn't have a great padding but again you can install the foam to seats afterwards. 2. Engine and Technology The bike which I am owning is the carburetted one as it is 2015 make while the current variant have the fuel injection. The bike has SUPER SMOOTH ENGINE which is good for generating 14.8BHP with 14NM power and torque figures respectively. This engine is good in low and mid rpm range while it goes upto 9.5k RPM but it is not that rev happy engine. At higher RPMs the vibrations will generate. 3.Fuel Efficiency The bike is a great mile muncher. It gives the mileage of around 53Kmpl at speeds around 65-70 KM/H while if you cruise at highway at speeds of around 85 KM/H the bike will give the mileage of around 47 KMPL while in city at 80-85 KMPH the bike gives mileage of around 42 KMPL. Since my bike is carburetted one the FI variant will surely give the better mileage than this. 4.Brakes The bike have the disc brakes at both the ends and as per the performance of the bike the brakes are decent. The provide enoungh stooping power with the MRF rubber at both ends. The tires provide the good amount of grip. It is also equipped with single channel ABS for panick braking situations. 5.Lighting The bike lacks on the lighting side. It is okay for the city rides but for highways you will have to install auxiliary lights for once sun goes down. It now comes with LED HEADLIGHT and LED REAR LIGHT. 6.Gearbox The 5 speed gearbox is not that smooth on other bikes but it will surely not cause problems to you. Tips to remember Never ever get 3 people on bike otherwise your rear suspension will be gone and you will then have lower ground clearance and which will result in scrapping of exhaust part of your bike at speed breakers and potholes.Keep a check on engine oil suspension leaks and air filter regularly in around 20 days If your rear tire is wearing more on one side then try it by replacing the brackets for swing arm at the chassis end.
Mileage is like every other 150cc bike. If you drive very sensibly, can expect upto 50KMPL. Maintenance is on a higher side if you service in the suzuki service stations. Can get the service done in less than half of the price outside. Comfort is good for rider not for pillion. Ride and handing is by far the best in the segment. It's very agile and initial pick up is very nice. No hints of vibration upto 80-85 KMPH, after that a little buzz, that too very less. Power is delivered in a very linear way and It is way better than fz and fzs.overall a very nice motorcycle if you drive alone.
I have purchased naked gixxer 2019 fi model. Since i have used it about 200km in last 3 days i want to say that the machine is fabulous no any issue styling is that when i go to market people looks behind looks are much better than fzv3 compare side by side..... But only pillion seat is not comfortable but it is so much acceptable for looks .... Overall it worth my single penny.. there are no any single vibration on 100 kmph above than i have not gone due to indian roads i will give 4.6/5
Bike is simply superb.Never face any vibration issue.Engine is super refine.Only negative thing with gixxer is its seat.Its way too high for pillion rider and bit stiff you just cant travel very long as a pillion rider hope 2020 version gixxer resolved this issue.Else its superb machine for daily commute.Except free services i have always used full synthetic oil so gear shift is smooth too.
I had purchased gixxer naked 2018, started 3 months there was no complain but after the 1st services, mileage dropped before services it was 45 kmpl above and after services it's not more than 32 or 33kmpl. I have requested many times pls check out and clear it but I don"t get the valid reason, I spent 3500 rupees on them during increase mileage but they can't.
