Suzuki may launch next-gen Gixxer 155 along with Gixxer 250 in August 2019
Okay, till now, half images of 2019 Gixxer 155 were roaming on the internet, but now we have a complete undisguised image of the motorcycle. Someone took the snap in a Suzuki dealership with the bike being used to train the mechanics. We can now confidently say that Gixxer 250 will also look similar to its younger brother.
Speaking about the design, the overall body is somewhat same with a list of changes. The headlight is a three-row LED unit, though the complete assembly takes the same form (but different). Tank extensions are sharper and larger than before and seem to be integrated on to the fuel tank. The bike gets split seats with pillion seat being more comfortable and accommodating. Furthermore, the dual barrel exhaust muffler is now redesigned. The instrument cluster will be direct lift from Gixxer SF 155.
Powering the 2019 Gixxer 155 will be a fuel-injected 154.9cc single cylinder, air-cooled unit. This powerplant will make 13.9bhp at 8000 rpm and 14Nm torque at 6000rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox same as that of previous gen motorcycle. Kerb weight will be around 140 Kg.
