Since the launch of the Gixxer SF and the Gixxer SF 250, Suzuki has been working on the new facelifted model of the naked Gixxer 155. The bike was first revealed in a brochure image a few days back but now we bring you a few spy shots that reveal the exteriors of the bike completely. The images you see here were posted by twowheelstraveller_tamil and arielmbelli on Instagram. The front end look along with the side rear look of the bike is clearly visible here and the bike is a looker for sure. Suzuki has upgraded the design and added more muscle to the popular 150 cc segment bike along with giving it better features.
The biggest change which is immediately apparent on this bike is the new headlamp unit. As is the case with the new Gixxer SF, the naked version of the bike also gets full LED headlamps that give a whole new look to the bike when viewed from the front. The stylish LED headlamp unit gets a silver plastic surrounds around it and is flanked by indicators on either side. The Gixxer 155 will be identical to its fully-faired twin in terms of mechanicals and several other parts. The rims, tires, disc brakes, exhaust canister and other bits are exactly similar to the ones found on the faired version of this motorcycle.
The only major difference here will be the front end styling along with changes in the seating position, which is expected to be a bit relaxed on this naked Gixxer compared to the Gixxer SF. The instrument cluster on this bike will be the same fully digital unit that is seen on the faired version of the bike. The bike will also feature ABS as is the norm with all bikes at and above 125 cc displacement. However, it will be a single channel unit in all likeliness as the Gixxer SF also gets a single-channel ABS system. Since this naked Gixxer will have no fairings to carry, it will weigh less than the Gixxer SF.
The Gixxer SF weighs 146 kg, so expect the naked variant to tip the scales at around 140 kg which will result in marginally better performance. Speaking of which, the bike will be powered by the same 155 cc air-cooled engine that powers the Suzuki Gixxer SF. This engine churns out 13.9 Bhp of power at 8,000 rpm along with 14 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox on the Gixxer SF. The configuration is expected on the Gixxer as well, though the engine could be slightly retuned but this is not confirmed as of now. Expect the bike to be launched in this quarter itself with a price tag of around Rs. 1 lakh.
