The official photos of the upcoming 2019 model of the Gixxer SF 150 have leaked a few hours ahead of the launch in India tomorrow (May 20) at 11:30 AM. Suzuki’s popular 150cc full-faired sports bike is all set to get a major design update in the form of an all-new LED headlight, LED tail light, new sharp-looking side fairing, a new digital instrument console, a new split seat, updated double barrel exhaust, a clip-on handlebar, and the bike also gets a set of new graphics with eye-catching decals.
The upgraded SF 150 is expected to be available in three colours: Black, White, and Suzuki Blue. After the launch in India, the 2019 Gixxer SF 150 would be competing in the market with the likes of R15 V3. The Yamaha YZF-R15 V3 is technically very advanced and powerful in comparison to the SF 150 but it is the only full-faired 150cc segment motorcycle in India, making it the direct rival to the upcoming Suzuki sports bike.
Technically, the 2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF 150 is expected to be powered by the same 154.9cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine, which is capable of producing a maximum power figure of 14.8 HP at 8000 rpm, and a maximum torque of 14 NM at 6000 rpm. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed transmission. The updated SF 150 is expected to get a single-channel ABS unit like the last-gen model.
The 150cc Gixxer SF model is expected to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.05 lakh, while the 250cc model will be priced around INR 1.50-1.60 lakh. The complete technical specifications of the 250cc version have also leaked online, you can click here to know more about the SF 250.
