The GIXXER is available in 5 colour variants- Metallic Oort Grey, Candy Antares Red, Glass Sparkle Black, Metallic Triton Blue and Pearl Mirage White.
The new motorcycle features a twin exhaust to add to the sporty look and has a fully digital meter console.
Suzuki claims that their newest motorcycle will have a fuel economy of 63.2 kpl, which is a very good number keeping in mind the bike falls in the 150cc category.
