Gixxer sf is a winner, a big time crowd pulle

6 years ago by Angad7,563 views

Style when it comes to style, suzuki gixxer sf is a clear winner. Others may have a different viewpoint but no matter from which angle you look at the bike, it seems the machine is waiting to race. I read a few reviews by experts and users where they said the bike looks smaller at times and the headlight design does not fit well to the overall built but i would differ with them. Yes, this bike grabs instant attention, from people of all age groups -- male and female. In the midst of bumper to bumper traffic, gixxer sf enjoys the attention from people driving audis, bmws and all high-end brands. They say royal enfield rides are arrogant but i noticed even them turning their head. You hit the road, park it somewhere or just cruise on the highway -- gixxer becomes the central point of attention immediately.


Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox the engine is incredibly powerful. In fact, i might be exaggareting if i say gixxer sf actually throws you backward when revved hard. Undoubtedly, it can't meet the power delivery of yamaha r15 or honda cbr but it can't be counted out as well. Just rev the throttle and you get power on demand, adequate enough to make vehicles disappear on the rear-view mirror. On highways, the bike just flies, sans any vibration. The engine does not sound stressed even after crossing the 100 kmph mark.


Though my bike is still new, it is giving me a good mileage. I ride in mixed conditions mostly and refuel once a week (5 litres of petrol), less than half of the fuel tank's capacity and still don't need to switch to reserve mode. I hope you get the hint here.


The gear shifting was incredibly messy before the first servicing. Even after getting the servicing done, gear shifting has not become that smoother. But don't lose heart, it is very muchmanagable. While it's not butter smooth, it won't leave you stuck also.


Ride quality & handling ride quality is awesome and handling is brilliant. For a bike, that weighs more than 300 pounds and carries me (almost 200 pounds), the handling is brilliant. It maintains a straight line, sticks to the ground and does not deviate. The wind blasts are taken care off by the fairing and windshield and you don't need to worry while riding in high speeds. Oh yes, if you duck down while riding post 90-100 kmph, your body would tackle the windblasts better.


Final words suzuki gixxer sf is a no-nonsense commuter bike that can double up as tourer. Gifted with super sporty looks, the bike is an excellent companion for city as well as highway riding. The seating position, (during solo riding) can be customized according to the rider's comfort. The mileage is good considering the fact that it has a poweful engine.


Areas of improvement the bike should get a more aggressive seating position, rear disc brake, split seats, brighter headlamp and a 200-cc version (being greedy here) would make it a class apart.

Pros

looks, styling, built, handling, engine, power delivery, braking, acceleration, ride quality

cons

headlamp brightness, no rear disc brake, less aggressive seating posture

    Best bike in this segment but after sales service is poor. Mileage and power is quite good. Spare parts and maintenance is on the lower side. Chain sprocket lasts 30k kilometers. Power and handling is absolutely great. Breaking is pretty good . I owned single channel abs model with fuel injector. Very refined engine.

    I had bought suzuki gixxer sf abs on 15 august 2017. The riding experience in city traffic perfectly smooth and comfortable and on highways the bike manages excellent upto 100 speed and the engine cools really well as i rode this bike without stopping for 210kms in a ride. The gear shifting is smooth and engine sound also smooth in high speed rides. This gives upto 47-50kms\lt mileage on highway and 43-45 kms\lt in city. The servicing and engine oil can be changed after every 3000-4000kms upto which the engine oil is perfectly smooth. Cons - the concerns i feel are view mirrors which cannot be used in traffic conditions as are lengthy and rear suspension which can be better for long rides.

    I bought suzuki gixxer sf matt triton blue from bharat suzuki pune. Pros.1.Good machine, engine performance is remarkable. 2.No heating issue up to 40k after that slight heating was started from engine side. 3.Riding position 4.Gear ratio 5.Good aerodynamic design. Cons: 1. Tight gear shaft, painful gear shifting. If the clutch wire is little loose then it is horrible to change the gear. 2.Oil leakage through magnetic coil wire. They first replaced the cover.It costs around 250 rupees,but it was not stopped. Then i changed magnetic coil (rs 1600). After 100 km again restarted the same problem. After watching a youtube video i applied some gasket maker on the part , then only it stopped.3.Spare part availability is very poor in our area. My front break disc was damaged and purchased new one. When the mechanic started to changing it he said that your mc kit and wheel cylinder kit should be replaced then only we can fix the issue permanently. I inquired in three authorized showrooms in my area and all of them said that part is not available here. Then i searched on local market their also it was not available. Then i tried mc kit with pulsar 180 spare and caliper piston with cb shine, both works fine in gixxer sf. I ordered these parts in bharat suzuki they said that it take 2 weeks to reach the item. After 2 weeks i called them , but again they needed one more week. At last i received a message that my parts are came. I visited showroom and told them that i need only wc kit , they gave me one piston with o rings. After that they arranged one more pistons after three days. Total 25 days for a small spare part. 4.During rain water will enter through tank cap. It will cause corrosion inside water tank . Check frequently. 5.Switch quality is below average. 6.Handle bar is not good. The side stand is too straight. Bike fell down many times due to this height of side stand. All these times handle bar gets some damage and its quality is very bad. 7. Seat comfort is not up to the mark. Especially pillion seat. Pillion will feel discomfort even after 20km ride.Rider can enjoy 60 km continuous ride easily.8.Spare parts rates are similar to royal enfield parts. Average life of some parts: 1.Chain sprocket-13000-16000km. 2.Front disc pad-15000km. 3.Clutch cable-22000km. 4. Accelarator cable-20000km 5.Mrf tyres -25000k. 6.Engine oil-4500km. 7.Cone set-25000km.

    This bike is good in all respect according to price, breaking system and speed control is quite awesome among 150 cc other bikes. Mileage on long drives is 45-46 km/l and in local areas mileage reduces to 40 km/l I have ridden this bike at the top speed of 122,Fiber body part, so it requires high maintenance and servicing in every 3 months.

    Bike is worst on my opinion. Starting from buying, sales manager give false commitment on 1st day. Handle & side stand problem face on first ride to till. Salesman promise not complete till date. Now, starting facing servicing problem, i trying 3 service center of suzuki but every place no good mechanic & supervisor found. They doing the job 3rd class. They remain left the specify job also. Only time waste and money waste. This bike cost definitely cheap to other company bike on this segment, but faced to cry after that.

    1) it's fine.2) riding wise, it's handling is superb...Awesome bike with respect to handling.3) good look with low cost. But the engine performance is worst.4) more servicing centers are available, but only 1 or 2 are providing good service. Rest all are not even responding for customer presence.5) milage is fine, i'm getting 45 to 50 kmph on highways and 40 to 45 kmph in city. Handling wise no other bike in this cost will beat this bike. Seating comfort is excellent, you can go for long rides without any hassles. Engine needs improvement, it's like 100cc or 125cc bike.
