At a recent event, Suzuki Motorcycle India launched two new fully faired bikes. The 155cc Gixxer SF was already available, but gets a new styling. The Gixxer SF 250 is the company’s domestic foray into the quarter-litre segment.
Suzuki is now offering a list of accessories to complement the new bikes. Most of these accessories are for aesthetic purposes, but some are functional too. The list includes tank graphics, wheel rim stickers, Suzuki branded seat covers, a smoked visor to replace the standard clear one, tank protector and a DC power socket for when you are touring. All accessories are optional and need to be purchased separately.
As for the bikes, the Gixxer SF undergoes significant styling and mechanical changes to meet the upcoming Bharat Stage-VI (BS-VI) norms. The bike is powered by a 155cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine producing 14.1 PS of power and 14 Nm of peak torque. It gets a new clip-on handlebar assembly, all-LED headlamp and a change in the fairing design.

Suspension comes via conventional telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock, while disc brakes with dual-channel ABS provides stopping power.
