8,500 KM Suzuki Gixxer Ownership Review By Ashiq
Hello everyone, This is Roknuzzaman Ashiq From Dhaka. I’m studying in BBA at Daffodil International University. I’m really crazy about Bike form my childhood. Today I’m going to discuss about my SUZUKI GIXXER ownership Review.
Why I Choose SUZUKI GIXXER?
The thing is that, my father used only Japanese Honda brand Motorcycles – Honda Super Cub 50, Honda XL 185, Honda CD 80 & Honda Super Cub 50. From my father’s and my experiences about Japanese Brand I would like to buy a Japanese Brand Motorcycle because of their performances. But my first Motorcycle was Pulsar 150 cc DTSi 2014 Model. That Motorcycle really disappointed me. So, I have to sell my Pulsar after using 3 months.
As per I know Now only three Japanese Brand in Bangladesh Honda, Yamaha & Suzuki. As I got a great news from BIKEBD that RANCON MOTORBIKES has launched SUZUKI GIXXER. So I wait for GIXXER. After few days I paid the booking on 26th February and on 3rd March 2015, RANCON MOTORBIKES confirmed me to collect my Bike from their Manufacturing Unit Bhabanipur, Gazipur. This was really a memorable day in my whole life.

Braking System and Control
SUZUKI GIXXER is one of the best controlling bikeamong 150cc segment in Bangladesh. It’s 266mm front disc break and 130mm rear drum breaking system gives a best riding control in any road. It’s 41mm Forks, Swing arm, and 7 steps of Mono Suspension has been setup to provide outstanding stability even on changing road conditions. This bike has really a good effort to control in high speed riding. The MRF nylon grip tires givesa smart riding experience and specially cornering.
SUZUKIuse SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) to perform higher mileage in both city & highway riding. it’s 12 litter big fuel tank with 2.4 litter reserve capacity, GIXXER needs only 850 ML engine oil. During changing the oil filter it needs 950ml engine oil. SUZUKI GIXXER has good fuel efficiency. In a city riding it gives 44 kmpl and in highway riding it gives 53 kmpl. From my riding experiences in GIXXER, I am getting this mileage.
SUZUKI GIXXER is really a comfortable bike. When a rider will seat in this bike I think he will ride with full comfortable.It’s 780mm seat high for the riders triangle in terms of the distance between handle bar, the foot pegs and the seat, it gives the GIXXER a sporty stance unlike any other naked among 150cc segment.
I was riding in Dhaka-Bogra-Naogaon-Rajshahi highway, bolt I never fell any pain in elbow with body. One thing I want to say about GIXXER, when riders riding high speed they just fell like a bird as fly. So, I frankly say about GIXXER is really a great riding experience to any riders.
