The ABS-equipped version of the Gixxer SF is priced at ₹95,499 for the carburetted version, while the fuel injected version costs ₹99,312 respectively (ex-showroom, Delhi). You can get the ABS version in either the carburetted or the fuel-injected (FI) form. This is a single-channel ABS system (it works only on the front brake).
Apart from a small increase in weight by 1kg, the bike remains the same mechanically. It is powered by the same 154.9cc, single-cylinder air-cooled motor that makes 14.8hp of peak power and 14Nm of peak torque (for both carb and FI models). Power is channelled via a five-speed gearbox. What sets the bike apart visually from the non-ABS bikes are the wheel speed sensor on the front brake rotor and the ‘ABS’ decals on the front fenders.
Speaking about the new ABS-equipped Gixxer SF models, Sajeev Rajasekharan, EVP, sales and marketing, Suzuki Motorcycles India, commented, “The safety and well-being of our customers is of paramount importance for us at Suzuki. The new variants not only enhance the rider’s safety, but also make every ride more exciting. We are confident that the new Gixxer SF variant will strengthen our foothold amongst the conscientious young riders who want to make a style statement, but also don’t want to compromise on their safety.”
Both ABS-equipped models come in two colours – Metallic Triton Blue and Glass Sparkle Black/Metallic Mat Black.
