The premium Suzuki Gixxer SF is a fully faired 155cc motorcycle which has been developed in the same wind-tunnel where the legendary Hayabusa, and GSX-R and MotoGP machines are developed. and The fairing has been designed to give maximum wind protection to the rider and reducing turbulence and drag. Thereby delivering great aerodynamic efficiency.
The ultra-lightweight and punchy engine under the sleek fairing of the Bike has been powered with cutting edge SEP technology. Which enables the bike to deliver great power without compromising fuel economy.
Every feature of the bike is designed to give a sporty and premium look – from its futuristic-looking aluminum exhaust end cover, new clear lens indicators and pinstripe on the wheels gives it a sharp & edgy look, guaranteed to appeal to all motorcycle lovers!
The thing about fully-faired motorcycles is that they are easily noticeable due to the large panels that cover the engine and extend till the headlamp. Some motorcycles look really good, while some not so much with the additional unnecessary mass. Thankfully, the latter is not the case with the Gixxer SF, which is beautifully styled and looks good with the fairing that sports funky decals.
The Gixxer SF looks fresh and attractive due to this new paint scheme and ‘SUZUKI’ stickering. These are a part of the special MotoGP Edition available only in metallic triton blue.
The new fairing is in line with the elegant seat and the upswept tail piece, not giving a feeling that the fairing was an afterthought. Then of course, the large oval-shaped dual exhaust with aluminum muffler cover adds to the bling. The Y shape, three-spoke alloys from the Gixxer make it the best looking alloys in this segment. Not to upset fans and enthusiasts with skinny tyres, the Gixxer SF’s wheels are shod with a 140 section tyre at the back, which gives it a good street presence.
Suzuki Gixxer SF Designers
There is nothing amiss and the designers have taken care of even smaller details like the kick-lever accentuating the design, and the fluorescent lines on the fairing, tank, and alloys are in sync. Be it the headlamp or the fairing, the tank or the seat, the rear section or the tyres, Suzuki has styled the motorcycle in a way that it is at present unparalleled in its class. In fact, if we were to look at the fully-faired motorcycles in the 150cc segment across various price ranges the Gixxer SF is still the clear winner.
Suzuki Gixxer SF Features
Coming to the features of the motorcycle, there is not much that I would want to specifically point out as it shares most of the components with its naked sibling. The digital instrument-cluster is straight away carried from the Gixxer and does the job perfectly. The font is clearly visible during the day, in harsh sunlight and at night as well.
Suzuki Gixxer SF Detail
With the orange back-lit illumination, this instrument panel boasts of the tachometer, clock, gear indicator, odometer, fuel gauge, indicators and an RPM indicator, which are all arranged neatly in the rectangular housing. The RPM indicator is adjustable and can be set in between 5,000rpm to 9,500rpm to indicate the gear shifts – a feature that the competition lacks.
Suzuki Gixxer SF
Unfortunately, the throw of light is low and the intensity could have been better. It might not cause any problems at night in the city, but for the enthusiasts who would want to take the bike out on long tours, night travel will be a tough task.
Suzuki Gixxer SF Mirror
Coming to the usage of the mirrors, nature is exactly opposite to the usage of the headlight. The mirrors do provide a perfect sight and are stable on the highway, but are too wide making it difficult for the bike to pass between two vehicles in the city traffic with ease. Nevertheless, Suzuki has given users an option of fitting mirrors on the handle-bar like the naked Gixxer.
Suzuki Gixxer SF Handle Grips
Most of the other features are from the Gixxer. The handle grips are nice and soft and the seat is well-stitched and comfortable. The body-coloured grab-rails flow well into the rear section with the immaculate design and are pretty useful for the pillion to hold on. So, even though the Gixxer SF is not a feature-rich motorcycle, the features are adequate enough and of top-notch quality.
Suzuki Gixxer Performances
The Gixxer SF is powered by the same 155cc single-cylinder air-cooled carbureted engine from the Gixxer and there are no changes to the power train. This mill churns out 14.59bhp of power and 14Nm of torque and comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.
When Suzuki had launched the Gixxer, they had made it clear that this 155cc engine is not a unit that the company shares with the commuter centric GS150R motorcycle. The engine is new and comes equipped with SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) technology, which will help the motorcycle deliver both performance as well as fuel efficiency.
Suzuki Gixxer Gearbox
This power plant is mated to a five-speed gearbox, unlike the six-speed one on the GS150R. The engineers have set the gear ratios really well throughout the rev range and we never felt the need of the sixth gear. Suzuki’s intention of developing an optimized power train with the five-speed unit has worked well. But only if the company could have kept the first two gears short, however, the gear shifts on the Gixxer SF felt a bit hard.
Suzuki Gixxer Engine Performance
The engine performance is almost best. The mill revs smoothly from idling to up to 9,500rpm without skipping a beat. There is ample amount of low- and mid-range of power to ride the motorcycle at low speeds and cruise comfortably at 100kmph respectively. Indicated speeds of more than 130kmph are possible but 80-90kmph is where the rider is going to be very comfortable.
Suzuki Gixxer Ride
Anyone would love to ride the SF. The ride height and the seating position is comfortable and would suit a rider of any stature. The placement of the handle-bars is neither too low nor too high allowing the rider to sit straight and enjoy the ride at cruising speeds or even duck down and go flat out. The visor on the fairing helps to deviate the air over the rider and maintaining speeds in excess of 100kmph is not a tiresome task.
Suzuki Gixxer Suspension
The Gixxer uses telescopic forks at the front and a seven-step adjustable rear mono shock suspension with aluminum swing-arm at the rear. These have been tuned according to the Pakistan riding conditions. The stability of the bike is taken care of by the suspension set-up which is soft and good enough for rough terrains.

How does it ride?
Compact, agile and dynamic – when all these aspects are added, the outcome is the Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi. This motorcycle is outstanding when it comes to riding quality and handling. The suspension setup is perfect for any conditions. An upright riding position, comfortable knee recesses even for tall riders and not-so-rear footpegs result in ideal city manners. For long haul too, the wide, comfortable single seat proves to be of great help. There’s nothing fancy about the Gixxer SF Fi. It gets telescopic forks in the front and a mono-shock at the rear, and single downtube frame.
The 155cc single-cylinder engine gets fuel injection and unlike the FZ FI, hasn’t led to a decrease in power. The throttle response is a lot crisper now especially at lower revs, and the 14.8/bhp is delivered in a linear way. The acceleration in first and second gear is surprising enough to fool a new rider into believing it is a larger-displacement engine. It also pulls comfortably from as low as 40/kmph in top gear with my weight. The Gixxer SF Fi returned us an impressive fuel efficiency of 58.8/kmpl.
What is it?
The Gixxer SF is the bike to own if you want to be one of the coolest guys in your college group. It is available in a lot of flashy colours, gets a full- fairing and has a name that’s related to a big bike. But the Gixxer SF Fi has some new additions. It gets fuel-injection and a rear disc brake. So you can have a better throttle response, can ride a little faster and have improved stopping distance, too. To top it off, this version is available only in the Suzuki MotoGP paint scheme which looks outstanding.
Anything else should I know?
The Gixxer SF Fi can be differentiated from the carb version through the presence of a tiny ‘fuel injection’ logo on the top left of the fairing. There’s also no kick-starter or fuel petcock on the Gixxer SF Fi. You should also note that Suzuki hasn’t equipped the Gixxer naked bike with fuel -injection. But we expect that to happen sometime early next year.
Should I buy one?
The only negative the SF has is the width of the mirrors – it makes it difficult to filter through standing traffic. Otherwise, the Gixxer SF Fi deals with everything that’s thrown at it with ease. It handles exceptionally and offers a comfortable ride too. With the fuel injection, the overall riding experience has improved and the presence of a rear disc brake means less braking distance and more confidence.
