Therefore, all the Gixxer and Suzuki lovers were waiting for the new era, and finally, the much-awaited all-new Gixxer series arrived in our local market.
“Born of Greatness” with this tagline, Suzuki launched all-new Gixxer and Gixxer SF. New looks, new technology, and design all make those bikes a hot topic. In this article, we are not going to start with the naked model Gixxer, and we will talk about the newly added features of Gixxer SF Fi ABS. as we mentioned, freshly added features, here you can see already two new things added with the name. Lot more new things are here, so let us jump into it.

Design and graphics:
Well, for this new Gixxer SF, the manufacturer company gave their best shot. Now it feels real sporty, and it happens because of the Aerodynamic Design with a new body dimension. Clip-on handlebars, spilled seat, newly designed twin-muffler, recently placed design of Front and rear lights, and the rear tire hugger gives this bike a completely new attraction than the previous models. Color schemes that have been used for this new SF are very worthwhile, and the best part is the newly added Moto GP edition with ECSTAR sticker gives this bike the real Moto GP track feelings. On the other side, glossy color shades for different variants are also very eye-catching.
Engine and transmission:
Suzuki has come up with their SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) technology mane years back, but now they included the Fuel injection technology to offer the best they can on their bikes. New Suzuki Gixxer SF has a carburetor version as well, but the main attraction is with the Fi engine. Advanced Fuel Injection technology is equipped with six sensors to calculate the optimum amount of fuel to be injected for better combustion efficiency, improving fuel efficiency, and providing accurate throttle response at all RPM to make every ride even more exciting. Both the versions have the same engine configurations except for the slight change of technology. Gixxer SF Fi edition comes with a 155cc 4-Stroke,1-Cylinder, Air-cooled engine that can produce 14.1 PS max power @ 8000 RPM and 14 NM max torque @ 6000 RPM. The multi-plate five-speed gear transmission box is mated with both Fi and carburetor versions. Bore x Stroke for this new engine is set 56.0 x 62.9 mm. The machine has electric starting options only for firing up the device.
If we look down on the dimensions, we will have 2030 mm overall length, 780 mm overall width, and 1130 mm overall height. The wheelbase for this bike is set at 1340 mm, and the ground clearance is 165 mm. the saddle height is 800mm, and it has a 12L fuel tanker. Combining all the dimensions, Gixxer SF contains 136 KG curb weight.
Suspensions and brakes:
A little bit of purgation is noticed at this bike’s suspension side. Stiffer Telescopic, Coil Spring, Oil Damped suspension is placed on the front side, and for the rear side, Suzuki has used Swing Arm, Mono Suspension.
Now, if we look down into the braking side, the natural attraction of this bike will be seen. The Gixxer series has ABS (Anti-lock Brake System), which automatically controls the braking force efficiently and avoids wheel lock up due to slippery roads and sudden changes in road conditions. However, single-channel ABS is far more efficient than before. Suzuki placed Disc brakes with ABS for the front side, and the rear side is again loaded with Disc plates.
Tires and Wheel:
Suzuki always tries to provide well gripped and long-lasting tires for their bikes, and they didn’t make any mistakes to do so for this new SF as well. For the front tires new Gixxer SF has 100/80-17-Tubeless tires, and for the rear side, 140/60R-17-Radial Tubeless tires. As we can see, both side 17-inch wheels are placed for these tubeless wider tires, and most importantly, they are newly designed alloys, which ensures quality and endurance.
Electrical and Meter cluster:
Some upgrades at these two sides are also noticed in this new Gixxer SF. Now the newly designed Headlamp and the rear lamp comes with LED power force. Clear lens Turn lights are placed, and the maintenance-free 12 V-3Ah battery will smoothly take care of all these new electrical features.
Fully digital instrumentation is seen at this bike from before, and the new model even has the better-looking meter cluster. All essential features are seen here, and the rider will not have any problems while riding.
