The transmission duties on the bike are handled by a 5 speed manual gearbox and the suspension is taken care of by telescopic front forks and monoshocker at the rear. The Japanese maker recently made single channel ABS standard on the bike and the coming months will also see the maker upgrading the engine of the bike as per the upcoming BS-VI emission norms.

Suzuki also launched the 250cc model in the Gixxer line-up in the Indian market and the updated Gixxer 155 SF borrows lot from the elder sibling. The new updated model of Gixxer SF 155 is more aggressive and defined looking than the 2018 version of the bike. As already stated the looks of the updated version of the bike are inspired by the larger Gixxer 250 and this is evident when you take closer look at the 2019 version of the Gixxer SF. Other changes on the bike include a new clip-on handlebar that replaces the single piece unit that was found on the 2018 Gixxer SF. The exhaust unit too now comes with a chrome layer and is double-barrelled. The seat of the bike is now a spilt unit and the decals on the bike are also new that add a freshness to the looks of the bike. All these changes come together to give the 2019 version of the bike a fresh as well as sportier look when compared to the 2018 Gixxer SF.
