Just after Suzuki Motorcycle India updated the Gixxer with an optional single-channel ABS in May 2018, the Japanese brand has now launched the 2018 iterations of the Gixxer SP and the Gixxer SF SP. For 2018, the motorcycles feature a relatively subtle gold and black colour scheme, with an exclusive 2018 SP emblem. The 2017 models had a rather loud red, black and silver colour scheme. The Gixxer SP employs a carbureted engine, whereas the SF SP variant now comes with fuel injection only.
Another change for the 2018 Gixxer SP and Gixxer SF SP is the inclusion of a single-channel ABS as a standard fitment. As a result, the price of the Gixxer SP has gone up by Rs 4,910 compared to the 2017 SP variant, and it now costs Rs 87,250. Price of the Gixxer SF SP, however, has remained the same, at Rs 1,00,630. The 2018 Gixxer SP and the Gixxer SF SP compete with the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160(Rs 82,624), Honda CB Hornet 160R ABS DLX (Rs 93,643) and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V EFI Disc variant (Rs 91,035) (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).
Both the Gixxer and the Gixxer SF series, are powered by the ultra-light 155cc engine with Suzuki's Eco Performance (SEP) technology, with a wide array of cutting-edge features and a powerful chassis developed by the engineers who designed the legendary GSX-R series.
