The pros: Looks are similar to the successful Gixer, efficient engine, precise gearbox, stable at high speeds, can go upto kmpl.
The cons: The bike is similar to its previous model Gixxer in every field, except SF gets a bigger cowl, there is nothing sporty in it.
The crux: Sparing some minor flaws the Gixxer SF has good ergonomics, ride, suspension and quality. It is full-faired motorcycles with limited budget.
Gixxer arrived as a fate-changer for Suzuki India, and after trying my hands over its fully-faired SF derivative, I must say that they have churned out another success story. As the name suggests, this motorcycle is based on the hugely-successful Gixxer, while it’s ‘SF’ suffix stands for Sport Fairing.
The riding triangle of the SF is similar to the Gixxer, with slightly rear-set foot pegs that gives it a sporty feel. I’ve always liked the handling and cornering abilities of the Gixxer, and the SF is no different. The SF negotiates corners fantastically, all thanks to grippy MRF tyres. Though the motorcycle feels stable at high speeds, the engine sounds stressed at these points, which can be irritating on longer runs.
