The breadmaker for the Japanese brand gets an update.

Not all debuts are sure shot hits – ask Suzuki. When the Japanese manufacturer made its entry on its own almost a decade ago, it didn’t have a start as good as expected. Except for the 125cc scooter Access, no other product from Suzuki in India could shake up the already established models in their respective segments.

And this continued for almost five years, till Suzuki launched the very promising 155cc motorcycle, the Gixxer. Considering the last flops which included all of its motorcycles, including its very first 150cc bike, the GS 150R, Suzuki naturally had high hopes attached with the Gixxer. And as expected, the Gixxer became the very first hit from Suzuki in the mass market segment. With this, Suzuki too started showing signs of becoming a settled player like its Japanese rivals in India, Honda and Yamaha.

In 2016, Suzuki introduced a couple of changes to the Gixxer to counter the onslaught brought by Honda in the form of CB Hornet 160R, and now to make it even more upmarket than before, Suzuki has freshened up the Gixxer even more with a couple of new changes for 2017 model. Let’s take a look on what all changes Suzuki has carried out for the Gixxer:-

The 150 cc commuter segment is spoilt for choice. Which one would you pick?

The 150 cc commuter segment is spoilt for choice. Which one would you pick?

Bajaj Pulsar NS 150 vs Honda CB Hornet 160 R vs Suzuki Gixxer vs Yamaha FZ-S FI. Choose your weapon of choice to ride the streets

The segment of 150cc motorcycles has been completely revived after a very long time, as we can see a prominent presence of almost all the major players of Indian two wheeler motoring in this category of motorcycles. From a segment which was earlier, in initial stages, was believed to have a very niche audience which values performance more over the commonly perceived notions of low maintenance and high fuel economy, the 150cc segment has now spawned into a number of categories within itself. However, the most of the volumes of this segment come out of premium 150cc commuter streetfighters, which are perfectly well spaced between the entry level 150cc commuters as well as 150cc sports tourers and super sports.

Speaking of this segment in particular, it all started when Yamaha launched the very macho looking and attractive FZ-16 back in 2008, which, at the time of its launch, became an instant success, for the motorcycle brought some international levels of design traits, build quality and features, some things which made it look like a scaled-down version of the liter class roadster from Yamaha, the FZ1.

Today, this segment has become more of a single player territory, as almost all the biggies of this industry now have a presence. However, speaking of the favourites, the trio of Japanese makes – Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki – are ruling the roosts with their respective offerings, the CB Hornet 160 R, FZ-S FI Version 2.0 and Gixxer. With their brawny styling, typical Japanese build quality and refinement and adequate performance, all these three motorcycles are the most prominent and one of the best-selling motorcycles for their respective parent manufacturers.

Seeing the success of the Japanese motorcycles, how can Bajaj, the pioneer of the 150cc segment, can be left behind? After having a glorious journey of the very popular Pulsar brand, the manufacturer is all set to unleash its offering in the premium 150cc streetfighter category with the all-new Pulsar NS 150. A lesser powerful and lesser equipped version of the Pulsar NS 200, the Pulsar NS 150 will be positioned above the Pulsar 150 to take on the competition from Japanese rivals.

Now which one emerges to be a winner out of this tough battle? Let’s find out:-

Comparison of 150cc sport tourers – Suzuki Gixxer SF FI vs Yamaha Fazer FI

Comparison of 150cc sport tourers – Suzuki Gixxer SF FI vs Yamaha Fazer FI

Find out who wins the top spot

There was a time when the 150cc segment of naked commuters was considered to be the gateway to performance oriented segments of the Indian two wheeler market. Reason? There was simply nothing above it which could satisfy the craving for performance of the enthusiasts, except for a couple of exceptions and the super pricey liter class superbikes. However, with the passing times, the Indian market has become way more mature than what it used to be before, and now we have a variety of motorcycles, which are priced and positioned adequately according to the varying tastes of the prospected buyers.

This has led to the fact that the segment of 150cc naked commuters is now a mere option for upgrading to a better and a more premium commuter from a 100/125cc motorcycle, as there are now a number of options in the 200-250cc segment to fulfill that particular hunger for performance. Though, there is one category in the 150cc segment which still manages to impart the much needed ‘big-bike’ feel for the price at which they are offered – that of the sport tourers.

The category of sport tourers in this end of the segment of sub-1 lakh started all the way back in 2003, when Hero (the then Hero Honda) came up with the Karizma, which instantly earned the stature of a legend, owing to its looks and design inspired from the motorcycles from one segment above. Now that the market has become more mature and price conscious (and the Karizma too has become a motorcycle which has lost its steam and stature), the category of 150cc sport tourers has born, which at present is leaded by two major players – both are Japanese, both are fuel injected – Suzuki Gixxer SF FI and Yamaha Fazer FI. Yes, the segment consists of even the Bajaj Pulsar AS 150, however, the mechanicals and build of the former two are in an altogether different league from the Bajaj’s offering.

The Yamaha Fazer has been in the market now for quite a long time, and it is one of those motorcycles which has brought Yamaha back into the game of volumes. With its current guise, the Fazer FI, Yamaha has tried to make the motorcycle more premium and techonologically advanced than before. On the other hand, the Gixxer SF, along with its naked counterpart Gixxer, has made us sure that Suzuki can make brilliant motorcycles in the volume-conscious segments as well, just in the way as it makes in the other end of the spectrum (read Hayabusa and GSX-R1000). Suzuki has recently added the fuel injection technology and a couple of more features to the Gixxer SF and gave it a mild refresh. Which of the two motorcycles fare out to be the better one in comparison? Let’s find out:-

List of limited edition two wheelers launched for festive season of 2016

List of limited edition two wheelers launched for festive season of 2016

Most of the changes made are cosmetic but still its a good effort to attract attention

No matter how much slowdown the Indian two wheeler market will be facing, the one time period which brings a smile to all the automobile majors is the festive season of Navratri and Diwali. All the two wheeler manufacturers of the Indian market try their best to make their products as best as possible, by either introducing sweet and tempting deals and discounts, or to increase their profits and margins by launching limited edition models.

Out of these two moves by the two wheeler manufacturers for the festive season, the latter one seems to be more interesting, as it somewhat makes the already existing products a bit more desirable and value for money. These limited edition models do ask a slight premium (sometimes, they don’t ask that premium as well), which we feel is worthy given the fact that they do look a bit different and eye catchy on the road.

Following is a list of all the limited edition models by various two wheeler manufacturers of India for the festive season of 2016, which range from a puny 110cc scooter to a mighty middleweight naked roadster. Here you go:-

Suzuki GSX150R (Gixxer SF Facelift) Caught Testing On Indonesian Road: Video

Suzuki GSX150R (Gixxer SF Facelift) Caught Testing On Indonesian Road: Video

The Indian spec motorcycle could draw some inspiration from the Indonesian spec motorcycle

The new faired variant of the Suzuki GSX-R 150 was caught testing recently in Indonesia. The best thing is that this motorcycle seems to draw its inspiration from the faired variant of the Suzuki Gixxer SF. The Gixxer SF which is the fared variant of the Gixxer 150 has been here on sale in the Indian market since 2015 and has helped Suzuki to once again come in the spotlight.

The motorcycle which was spotted n the Indonesian road is the GSX-R 150 which will go on sale in their market soon. But if that is the case then there is a fair chance of Suzuki India updating the Indian Gixxer SF as well.

The motorcycle which you see covered in camouflage gets a restyled headlamp cluster which seems to also get LED strips as well. The fuel tank too looks to be revised. The headlamp cluster on this motorcycle looks much sleeker compared to the Indian spec Gixxer SF. Just like the front profile the rear profile too looks a lot different as well. The exhaust system of this prototype model is also different than our Indian spec Gixxer SF.

We are not sure about the powertrain yet but this variant seems to be more powerful than that of the Gixxer SF. The Indian spec Gixxer SF is powered by 154.9 cc air-cooled engine generating max power of 14.8 PS of peak power at 8,000 rpm and 14 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5 speed manual transmission. However there are reports that this Indonesian GSX-R 150 could produce more power and torque than the Indian spec Gixxer SF.

2016 Suzuki Gixxer SF FI

In its early days of making entry into the Indian market, Suzuki wasn’t as lucky with its range of motorcycles as it was with its scooters. The Access 125 was a good shot by Suzuki in the segment of 125cc scooters, with which it made sure that it is a serious player in the Indian two wheeler market, and the volumes of the Access selling out in the market reflected this fact.

Though, when it came to motorcycles, Suzuki was not that lucky, with all of its mass oriented motorcycles ending up being low sellers. The key reason behind that was the fact that none of its motorcycles had the temperament of shaking up the competition. But all changed with the Gixxer, which not only set up benchmarks in the segment of 150cc motorcycles, but also refurbished the image of Suzuki in the market. The fully faired version of the same, christened as Gixxer SF, followed the same footsteps, and having the advantage of being the most affordable fully faired motorcycle in the country, it became a sure shot hit too.

For the year 2016, Suzuki did mildly updated Gixxer SF with a couple of more features, enhanced styling and more. And now, considering the fact that the competition is upping the game in terms of technology, Suzuki has just launched a fuel injected version of the Gixxer SF. Termed as Gixxer SF FI, this new motorcycle carries a couple of cosmetic changes as well, apart from the sure changes to the performance out of the powertrain.

Suzuki's fully faired bike spotted!

Suzuki’s fully faired bike spotted!

Suzuki is all set to launch a faired version of its newly launched bike, Gixxer. Spy pics reveal that Suzuki has been testing this faired version on roads. The faired bike is expected to be launched in 2015 and will compete against its Japanese counterpart, Yamaha Fazer.

This new faired bike is expected to be called as GSX150R. Suzuki is planning to stop selling Inazuma in India by mid-2015. Spy pics show that the faired bike was ridden along with its sibling, the Gixxer. We expect this bike to use the same 154.9 cc engine present in the Gixxer. The faired bike is seen to have a lot of similarities in components of Gixxer like tank, exhaust, pegs, disk, wheels, tires, and seat. The only difference in the faired version compared to Gixxer is the headlamps and windshield that take resemblance from Hayabusa. The rear-view mirrors are mounted on top of the fairing giving it a nice look.

The new bike from Suzuki is expected to carry out the same engine as the Gixxer, which will be single-cyclinder, 154.9 cc that will generate 14.8 PS of power with 14 Nm of torque. The bike is expected to be launched with rear disc brakes as standard. The faired bike from Suzuki is expected to have an on road price of 93,000 rupees in Mumbai. Suzuki Motors India Limited is on a spree of launching new vehicles after Gixxer and Let’s scooter. As of now in India, Yamaha Fazer and Hero Karizma are the only two bikes with faired headlamps. While the Karizma is over 200 cc, the Fazer will be the nearest competitor for this upcoming bike.
