Devashish Handa, Vice President, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd. said, "Overall the industry is going through a lean phase. However, Suzuki Motorcycle India continues to grow at a double-digit rate. This is a testimony to the growing preference for Brand Suzuki amongst the 2-wheeler buyers in India. We have expanded our motorcycle portfolio with the launch of the New Gixxer SF Series in India. We are expecting a good response from customers and aim to continue our sparkling double digit growth story."
Suuzki also entered the 250 cc motorcycle segment by launching the Gixxer SF 250 in India in May 2019. It is the first 250 cc bike from Suzuki after the Inazuma got discontinued a few years ago but gets a single-cylinder engine as opposed to a parallel-twin motor on the Inazuma. Along with it, the company also introduced the updated Gixxer SF 155 last month, which gets a fair few cosmetic updates along with increased power output.
