Outlook and design
If you think about the 2017 Suzuki Gixxer SF external look is same as compared to the previous old version, then you are wrong!
Automatic Headlight On
The Automatic headlight on (AHO) sparkles round the clock even in the daytime and make the Gixxer SF more visible on the road.
New GIXXER Graphics
The sporty design of the Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi is further highlighted by the Gixxer Logo on the side walls of the fuel tank, replacing the previous Suzuki logo. But still, the sidewise appearance of the Gixxer SF is not the best compared to the Yamaha R15 or the Honda CBR 150R. But, the front fairing and the rear chubby view with the LED danger lights are the best views of the 2017 Gixxer SF.
The Blue colour variant of the SF is more prominent than the Suzuki Gixxer SF special edition. The aluminium exhaust shield, crystal clear indicators are sweet as it used to be.
