The Gixxer SF MotoGP edition is priced at ₹ 1, 22,900. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi. Suzuki had showcased these BS6 models at the 2020 Auto Expo and was one of the two mainstream two-wheeler manufacturers who participated at the biennial event as well.
Commenting on the launch of BS6 compliant Gixxer series, Koichiro Hirao, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India said, “We feel proud to announce the launch of our BS6 compliant Gixxer series, ahead of the regulation deadline. Suzuki Motorcycle India has plans to grow at a robust pace with its flagship brand, Gixxer. Both BS6 compliant Gixxer SF and Gixxer, designed keeping the Indian customers in mind, have become even more environment friendly without compromising on the overall power and performance.”
