Suzuki has taken the wraps off the Gixxer SF ABS - the most affordable faired bike you can buy with this technology. The carbureted version retails for Rs 95,499 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) and the Fuel Injected variant is priced at Rs 99,312 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The ABS version will sit on top of the Gixxer SF food chain and will be available as the top-of-the-line variants of the carburetted and fuel Injected bikes. Dealerships had already started taking bookings for upto Rs 10,000 for the ABS variants.
The ABS variant is expected to be slightly heavier than the regular Gixxer SF thanks to the additional weight of the ABS unit. The bike features a single-channel ABS unit which means only the front wheel is ABS-equipped. ABS provides a better safety net by preventing the wheel from locking up under hard braking which can cause the bike to skid and fall.
The bike gets a 154cc air-cooled motor, power rated at 14.8PS @ 8000rpm and 14Nm of torque @ 6000rpm. The standard bike weighs 140 kg. But expect the weight to increase by 1-2 kg due to the addition of the ABS unit. It is available in two colour options – Metallic Trition Blue and Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Matte Black.
