Suzuki today announced the launches of Gixxer ABS in India. This version is priced at Rs 87,250 (ex-showroom, Delhi) which makes it Rs 6,321 more than the rear disc model and Rs 10,235 more than the single disc variant.
Note that the new version has the same features as the other models except the Anti-lock Brake system. ABS is the supplemental system which automatically controls the braking force efficiently and avoids wheel lock up due to the slippery road, the sudden change of road conditions or excessive braking in a certain controllable range.
Available in Black, Blue and Red colours, the Gixxer ABS has four stroke, air cooled 154.9 cc engine. This produces 14.8 ps of power at 8000 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. The bike comes with a five speed gear system. The Gixxer has both kick and electric start modes.
The bike has a kerb mass of 135 kg and comes with a 12 liter fuel tank. It sports 12V 35/35W headlights and has a 12V battery. In its front Suzuki has fitted telescopic suspensions while in the rear there are mono suspensions.
The Suzuki Gixxer has a full digital meter that displays Gear Position Indicator, RPM Indicator, LCD Trip Meter and Programmable Gear Shift Indicator among others. For braking it has 266mm disc in the front and a 240 mm disc at the rear which is assisted by a single-channel ABS unit.
Commenting on the launch, Sajeev Rajasekharan, EVP, Sales and Marketing, Suzuki Motorcycle India, said, “Ever since its launch, the Gixxer has emerged as a benchmark for the segment, managing to ‘Stay Ahead of the Pack’ in terms of technology and performance. The ABS option allows us to improve on an already exciting riding experience for our Gixxer customers. The Gixxer series is an important cog of our India product-strategy. With enhancements like ABS, we will continue to improve on the value-proposition we offer to our customers.”
