Instrument cluster is an all-digital unit and the tail lamp gets LEDs.

The Gixxer is powered by a 155cc, single-cylinder, air cooled engine with a five-speed gearbox. It gets Suzuki’s latest SEP technology which boosts performance along with fuel efficiency. The engine produces peak power of 14.8 PS @ 8,000 RPM and peak torque of 14 Nm @ 6,000 RPM. The bike also comes equipped with a 12V, 3Ah maintenance free battery. The Gixxer weighs 135 kgs.
