Suzuki Gixxer Performance & Mileage
In terms of performance, Gixxer lives up to the expectation of the owner. The 100 kmph speed from zilch is attained within 20 seconds (approximately). Top speed on offer is around 115 kmph. Fuel economy isn’t as impressive as one would expect, even on the long stretch the bike does not deliver an excellent efficiency, hence Gixxer is mediocre when it comes to mileage.
Suzuki Gixxer Braking and Handling
A single disc brake is placed in front to retard power and rear gets a drum brake. Steering is agile and the suspension system is slightly stiff which features 41mm large diameter forks in front and 7 step adjustable mono shock suspension at rear. The bike distorts after being driven for a while, but it gets back to normal as you go easy on the throttle. However, the bike lacks any prominent safety feature like anti-lock-braking system etc.
Suzuki Gixxer Wheels & Tyres
Up front, Gixxer gets 100/80-17 tubeless tyre and rear features 140/60R-17 tubeless tyre. Moreover, the tyres have a good grip on the road and have a peppy cornering ability. This in turn also works well for braking function.
In the 150cc segment, Gixxer faces competition from bikes like Yamah FZS, Bajaj Discover 150F and Honda CB Unicorn 160 CBS.
