A few brochure images of the Suzuki Gixxer 155 had been leaked a few weeks ago and the bike was seen only with minor cosmetic changes and now a completely undisguised image of the motorcycle has been shared on the internet. This leads us to believe that the motorcycle will be launched soon, and is about to reach dealerships.
In the engine department, the 2019 Gixxer 155 is expected to be powered by the same engine as the new 2019 Gixxer SF which has a 155cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, SOHC engine that produces 14.1 PS of power and 14 Nm of torque coupled to a 5-speed gearbox.
According to the leaked images, the front end of the bike is clearly seen and features a new LED headlight unit, sharp tank cowls, muscular fuel tank similar to the faired SF model and the step-up seats appear to have come from the Gixxer SF too. Because only the front pictures are available as of now we can speculate that the rear end is likely to receive LED taillights, a narrow tail section, chrome tipped double barrel exhaust and a digital instrument cluster from the Gixxer SF.
Mechanically the bike is expected to feature the same telescopic forks on the front, which appear to be carried forward from the SF model and a monoshock on the rear and the bike will be equipped with hydraulic disc brakes on both the ends equipped with a single-channel ABS. The wheels appear to be 17-inch ‘Y’ shaped alloys as seen in the pictures and are also likely to be from the 2019 Gixxer SF.
The 2019 Gixxer 155 and the 2019 Gixxer 250, the naked street fighter versions of the fully faired bikes will share similar design cues and are expected to be differentiated by the engine, colours and the oil-cooling technology on the 250cc model which is the major give away.
The bike in the leaked images come in the Blue-Black theme and is expected to be priced around the INR 1 lakh (ex-showroom). The Gixxer 155 will rival other naked street fighter motorcycles like the Yamaha FZ-S, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Honda CB Hornet 160R and others.
