Here is a complete story about the latest 150 cc bike being offered by Suzuki India, 2014 Suzuki Gixxer 150 was showcased at the Autoexpo, but no specification were unveiled. It was belived that Gixxer would share its power from GS 150 R’s engine which will churn out 13.9 Bhp and 13.4 Nm torque. Though performance figures are quiet similar with GS150 R it is believed that Gixxer would not share the similar six-speed transmission GS150R has. Gixxer 150 is powered with SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance), a newly adapted engine technology, which boasts top-class fuel efficiency without compromising power and performance.
Gixxer has a masculine style design with bigger forks, mono suspension, GSX inspired muffler, all these guddies makes it one mean looking machine.
Suzuki has planned to launch the Gixxer in Indonesia this year; Indian debut of Gixxer 150 is scheduled sometime in July or August later this year. It seems Suzuki is getting really serious about the Indian market, last month Suzuki launched 110 cc “Lets” moped scooter which was unveiled with Gixxer 150 at the Autoexpo. Lets is 110 cc scooter with cutting edge SEP technology.
Considering the competitive Japanese rivals who are way ahead of Suzuki making it difficult for Suzuki to cope up with market needs, well difficult but definitely not impossible. The only hit product from Suzuki Motorcycles India is the Suzuki Access 125 and moderately successful is the GS150R. Radical design of the new Suzuki Gixxer 150 will surely attract prospect customers of Yamaha FZ, Pulsar 150 and Honda’s 150cc bike lineup. In 2014 AutoExpo Suzuki Motorcycles India launched 250cc parallel twin Suzuki Inazuma. Priced a little higher and coming to India via CBU, Suzuki did not find many buyers for this bike yet and it gets in the league of slow selling motorcycle.
It looks like Suzuki found the formula of sucess with Gixxer in the Indian market just like Yamaha got their a few years back with FZ. We hope, with the launch of Suzuki Gixxer, the company will begin new successful innings in India.
