Powering the new Suzuki Gixxer and Gixxer SF is the same 155cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a five-speed transmission. With the updates to meet stricter emission norms, there is a slight decrease in power and torque figures. While the figures for the BS4 model are 13.9hp and 14Nm, there is a slight difference in the figures for the BS6 model at 13.4hp and 13.8Nm.
Commenting on the launch of BS6 compliant Suzuki Gixxer, Koichiro Hirao, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India said that the company feels proud to announce the launch of its BS6 compliant Gixxer series, ahead of the regulation deadline. He further added that Suzuki Motorcycle India has now plans to grow at a robust pace with the said brand. He concluded his statement by saying that both BS6 compliant Gixxer and Gixxer that have been designed keeping the Indian customers in mind have become environment-friendlier without compromising on the overall power and performance.
With the approaching BS6 deadline, most of the manufacturers have already updated their product portfolio and a few remaining vehicles will meet BS6 compliance in the days to come. While in such a scenario, the companies have tried their best to exhaust their BS4 stocks, there are still some vehicles left at the dealerships and are available with discounts. That said, if you are looking to buy a two-wheeler and save some cash, now can be the best time for you!
