FIRST SHIPMENT OF 720 UNITS OF SUZUKI GIXXER 155 EXPORTED TO JAPANESE SHORES
Suzuki Motorcycles India Pvt. Ltd announced that it will be exporting its made-in-India flagship bike, the Suzuki Gixxer 155, to the Japanese market. This is SMIPL’s first India-built motorcycle that will be sold in Suzuki Motor Corporation’s home market. The first consignment of the made-in-India Gixxer motorcycles has already left India for Japanese markets.
The Gixxer is powered by a 155cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. The engine produces maximum power of 14.8PS @8000rpm and peak torque of 14Nm @ 6000rpm. The motorcycle is available in two variants: naked Gixxer and faired Gixxer SF. Both the bikes also get fuel injection and rear disc brake as an option.
Commenting on the accomplishment Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, SMIPL, said, “It is a very proud moment for all of us as we send off our Indian flagship motorcycle Gixxer to Japan. We are already exporting Gixxer to other countries like Latin America and some surrounding countries. The export of made in India vehicles to Japan denotes the high quality benchmarks established by SMIPL and its expanding global role. Exporting the Gixxer to Japan would also mean showcasing the advanced technology and superior quality standards within the competitive price range that have been developed by SMIPL in India. We are confident that the Gixxer will be well accepted by Japanese consumer as well”.
