Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) has launched the new Gixxer SF ABS (anti-lock braking system) version in India. The Suzuki Gixxer SF ABS variant will be available with both the carburetted and the fuel injected (FI) versions. The Suzuki Gixxer SF ABS has been priced at Rs 95,499 for the carburetted variant while the FI variant carries a sticker price of Rs 99,312 (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). The ABS employed is a single-channel unit and works only on the front tyre similar to the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200. The Suzuki Gixxer SF is the second most affordable motorcycle in India after the TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS to boast of ABS and is the first bike in the 150-160cc segment to feature this safety tech.

Commenting on the new ABS variant, Sajeev Rajasekharan, EVP, Sales and Marketing, SMIPL, said, “We are pleased to announce the ABS fitted variant of Gixxer SF. The safety and well-being of our customers is of paramount importance for us at Suzuki. The new variants not only enhance the rider’s safety, but also make every ride more exciting. We are confident that the new Gixxer SF variant will strengthen our foothold amongst the conscientious young riders who want to make a style statement, but also don’t want to compromise on their safety.”
ABS is a welcome addition as it prevents the wheel from locking up under panic braking, thereby reducing the possibility of the rider crashing. ABS will be made mandatory on all new two-wheelers from April, 2019 onwards and it is good to see Suzuki offering this safety tech way in advance. So if you’re planning to buy the Suzuki Gixxer SF, we urge you to buy the ABS variant as it is worth the slight premium. And if you’re confused between the carburetted and fuel injected variants, we will suggest the FI version owing to slightly better performance and mileage numbers. Suzuki hasn’t offered ABS on the Gixxer streetbike yet, but we expect that it will also get optional ABS in the near future.
