The carbureted engine on the Gixxer SP and the fuel injected mill on the Gixxer SF SP churn out identical power and torque outputs of 14.6 bhp and 14 Nm respectively. Gearbox on the two motorcycles is a five-speed unit. Braking on the two motorcycles is done with the help of a 266mm disc brake up front along with a 240mm disc brake at the rear. A single-channel ABS is also offered on the two to offer added safety.
