The bike has caused enough anticipation for it to be pre-ordered at exceptional rates unofficially even before the official launch. In easy words, this bike has caused serious hype in the bike community.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF was initially launched in 2015 by Suzuki India. It reached the hands of the Bangladeshi crowd unofficially sometime after that. Later Rancon Motors Ltd.

After its launch in 2019, the New Suzuki Gixxer SF made its way to the consumers again through importers unofficially. Rancon Motors Ltd. finally brought the bike to Bangladesh in 2020 July officially and it started a huge storm in the bike community.
The New Suzuki Gixxer SF is a sportbike that comes with a sportier design. It looks like a shark with a beak. The beak is the sharp headlight design. The headlight is a dual-LED, which is an upgrade from the previous version which was halogen. The taillight is a dual-tone LED. The taillight seems like the smile of the Joker. The bike itself has a completely redefined design. With more compact and aerodynamic fairing and better seats. The new design also comes with race ergonomics, as the handlebar is a three-piece clip-on setup, and the footpegs are slightly pushed back and elevated.
As mentioned in the name, the New Suzuki Gixxer SF comes with Fuel injection (FI) and an Anti-lock braking system (ABS). These two features are the up and coming features in entry-level motorcycles. Most modern motorcycles are adapting to EFI or FI for fuel efficiency and durability.

The front brake of the FI variant is a disc associated with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), while the carb has a basic disc brake. ABS ensures safer and more controlled braking. The rear, however, has a basic disc brake with no ABS. The rear brake plate is smaller than the front brake plate as well, although a rear brake is at the end better than a drum brake.
The New Suzuki Gixxer SF comes with telescopic forks at the front. The forks at the front are oil damped and have coil springs. The front suspension is slightly stiff, which may be a problem for the bumpy city commutes of Bangladesh. The rear has a swingarm based mono-shock suspension, which is expected to perform well and suitably.
