Comapre 6 150 CC bike of Indian Market Suzuki Gixxer vs. Yamaha FZS Gixxer vs. Apache vs. Xtreme vs. Trigger



Overview

Suzuki Fiero was the first 150cc 4-Stroke bike launched in India. The Bike was the best 150c bikes of that time. Even when the CBZ powered with an 156cc, it can produce an output power of only 12.8bhp.

Even today it stands as a classic bike in the hearts of Indians. 

After fiero , Suzuki lost its market in India and have not delivered any bike vechicle except some minor scooter versions. Now, after 15 years , suzuki has really come up with great bike known as " GIXXY" .Overall, the Gixxer is quite an impressive bike . With the Gixxer, Suzuki appears to have taken cues from the competition, and consolidated them all together into one impressive package.(image stolen from suzuki international web)

SETUP RPM INDICATOR




 

Suzuki is very know international player for their rock solid engines and gearboxes. The Gixxer 155 proudly carries down this lineage. Everything about the engine and the gearbox of the Suzuki Gixxer 155 is slick and smooth and stormy. The 5 speed gear box has a very cocky and precise feel to it. Go for one test drive and see how engine performs.you will see how quick it will reach 100 kmph in fourth gear at 8k RPM in 15.45 seconds. It will do a comfortable 100 kmph in 5th gear at 70500 RPM.  The best feature of this engine though is the fact that how incredibly refined it is. Even at its limit there are absolutely no vibrations.

The best part about this new Suzuki is the way it handles. The chassis, which Suzuki says has been designed keeping in mind the design pattern of the Hayabusa and the GSX-R1000, is just AWESOME.

Agree, Bajaj /TVS and Yamaha loyalists may proclaim that the 150cc Pulsar,Apache and FZ has already good enough market to put a smile on face, but the Gixxer is neat,lighter, and has a marginally higher power output which definitely shows very bright tomorrow for GIXXER

Suzuki’s all-new 155cc motor (GIXXER)– that incorporates the company’s new-found Suzuki Eco Performance (SEP) technology – which is mated to a five-speed gearbox. With 14.3bhp and 14Nm on tap, the Suzuki has the highest power and torque figures as far as the higher end of the 150cc motorcycling spectrum in India is concerned. The new engine features all sorts of new techno-wizardry to reduce mechanical loss, and maximize combustion, like an inverted triangle piston skirt, among other MotoGP-inspired bits. The result, is that the motor is extremely smooth in its method of power delivery.just buy it i promise it is one more antique piece from suzuki which will live for decades

Hope this will help you in choosing right bike.  

MY HONEST FEEDBACK AND OBSERVATION ABOUT GIXXER155 ABOUT COMPLETING 6000 KM.

1)Build quality and paint work is awesome from the suzuki except on some back portions

2)Its very much fun to handle.Give this bike to 6 years old kid,i am sure he will ride it with ease

3)Smooth engine along with great pulling ability

4)Almost VOID vibrations even at higher RPMS. I Have enjoyed highest speed of 114 .Cocky gixxer builds up speed very easily and deceptively. Within no time, I am cruising at 80-90 kmph with void vibrations at all. It's only beyond 100 kmph that I feel minor vibrations in the foot pegs. 

5)TWIN EXHAUST ARE Beautiful but The exhaust pipe chrome metal cover is loosely fitted

6)You can easily through away any bike upto 200cc from any other makers like pulsar,Yamaha TVs.. braking is very good no rear locks even under hard braking, MR F tyres provides excellent grip levels on this bike

Things to Consider Before Buying a Two Wheeler

Brand

There are number of two wheeler manufacturers in India such as Honda, Suzuki,TVS,Hero and Mahindra. Honda and TVS are two most trust able brands in Indian market, The brand value also help in re-sell of bike.

Budget

Very important factor to be consider, You can buy a good two wheeler within a budget of Rs.60,000. Ready for little more to pay for new launched bikes with extra features and colors.

Weight

Women should really need to take care of this point, now a day’s there are low weight bikes are available but its extremely important to check the weight of the two wheelers so you can ride comfortably.

Storage

Helmet is now getting compulsory, So one should check the storge for the same and so many girls stuffs too. Also it should have enough space for Sunday shopping items.

Mileage

A good two wheeler should give you a mileage of 35 to 40 kms per litre, Do not get confused with Highway mileage consider the city traffic and small roads.

Height

I find this another important factor after weight, Most of the girls are at shorter side and two wheeler should not be too high else it will uncomfortable for you.

Auto Start

Kick-starting a two wheeler is not easy for every woman, through its very simple but Check for Auto Start and battery durability.

Durablility

Check out the review of the bike, it doesn’t make sense to make a hasty decision and settle for something that simply looks good and offers more mileage.

Style & Colour

New Style and Colour are the fist choice of girls,Pink, while,black and blue are the very popular colors, cute but should be durable.

Service Center

The location of your service center should be near by your area, during any emergencies you should not land up traveling long distances for repairs and services.

Low Maintenance

Servicing and Maintenance of two wheeler is very important, It makes traveling very convenient because of low running and maintenance costs mean you can get many miles of drive.

Availability of Spare Parts

All the newly launched two wheelers company does not have their spare parts easily available in the market, Consider this points in your list for future.

Resell Value

Resell price is totally depends upon the Brand, Year and current condition of bike, A branded bike could give you better deal as compare to other two wheelers.

NEW SUZUKI GSX-S1000 RANGE HEADLINES COLOGNE SHOW

Suzuki pulled the wraps off its new GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F models at the opening of this year's International Motorcycle Show in Cologne, Germany, as the Japanese manufacturer unveiled several new models and updates that will form part of its 2015 model range.
GSX-S1000 ABS
The product concept behind Suzuki's new super-naked was to provide the spirit of GSX-R in a naked streetbike chassis. Designed for nimble and agile handling, the GSX-S1000 features an all-new frame and utilises engine design and characteristics from the iconic GSX-R1000 K5, famed for its low-down torque and mid-range power.
With knowhow from MotoGP development, the GSX-S1000 benefits from a traction control system boasting three-modes as well as the option to switch the system off completely. ABS is also available, with the bike expected in dealership showrooms in late spring next year.
GSX-S1000F ABS
Also unveiled as part of Suzuki's new GSX-S range, the F variant features all of the benefits afforded to its naked sibling, including an all-new frame, traction control and ABS, but wrapped it in a newly designed fairing.
Designed with the same concept in mind, the GSX-S1000F shares the ergonomics and riding position of the naked version, with both aimed at providing a sporty ride on the road, but leaving customers with the choice of added weather protection or sheer naked aggression. It too, is expected in late spring.
Address 110
The new Address 110 is expected to arrive in early spring next year, and brings with it exceptional fuel economy and value. Boasting 139MPG* and a 5.2 litre fuel tank, the Address 110 is set to become the commuting scooter of choice.
Practical touches include under-seat storage in excess of 20 litres that will comfortably take a full face helmet and riding gear, and rear handbrake for use when parked. The Address benefits from a new fuel injection system and reduced overall weight, which comes from sporty, redesigned bodywork and cast aluminium, hollow-core wheels.
V-Strom 650XT ABS
Based on the already popular V-Strom 650, which has been the top selling dual-purpose machine in the 650-800cc class in the last decade, the V-Strom 650XT comes with more adventure as standard.
The new V-Strom 650XT takes design cues from the DR Big, the first dual-purpose machine to feature the now standard 'beak' design synonymous with models in the adventure sector. A new beak blends smoothly into the existing front bodywork, with air ducts that channel airflow to the radiator.
Newly designed, lightweight, wire-spoked aluminium wheels aid in the adventure-styling of the new V-Strom 650XT, and shock absorption performance is increased on unpaved roads. Its arrival is anticipated as early as December this year.
Bandit 1250S ABS
Bandit is back for 2015, with the iconic machine on sale in the UK early next year. With the original Bandit models developing a cult following, the latest incarnation uses the newest version of Suzuki's 1255cc inline four-cylinder engine and gets a styling update to bring it into 2015.
After repeated wind tunnel testing, the redesigned fairings, with new radiator shrouds, offer improved aerodynamics, with venting just below the headlights, as well as better wind and weather protection for both rider and pillion.
Inazuma 250F
The A2-licence friendly and ideal commuter, comes clad with a newly designed fairing for 2015, with the Inazuma 250F unveiled at Intermot.
Adding extra wind protection to the popular city-wise machine, which boasts an impressive 85MPG figure, cost conscious commuters can now travel even further in comfort. The new faired Inazuma will be on sale in early 2015, alongside the existing naked machine.

GSX-R1000 ABS
The iconic GSX-R1000, which took the win at the prestigious 24 hours of Le Mans earlier this year in the hands of the Suzuki Endurance Racing Team, now comes with ABS as standard for 2015.
As the Japanese brand celebrates its return to the blue-ribband class of motorcycle racing next year, the GSX-R1000 will also be available in the replica colours of Suzuki's new MotoGP racer, the GSX-RR.
