This bike sports completely all new naked bike based styling, 150cc engine(as claimed by information source) & many more. Hope it to be showcased at Auto Expo 2014 event & priced sensibly when launched.

An excerpt from artice at Motorbeam,

..A bike has been spotted on the Noida expressway, en route to the 2014 Auto Expo where it will be displayed. Badged as the Suzuki Gixer, this motorcycle could change the fate of Suzuki in India, similar to what the FZ did to Yamaha’s balance sheet. Suzuki has been lacking a variety of products but the automaker is seriously looking at expanding its portfolio.

Vaibhav who spotted the bike says he saw two Suzuki motorcycles although he has shared only one picture. We feel a full faired version of the above pictured bike could also be launched. A quick dive into the details reveals the Gixer to be a modern and attractive motorcycle. The bike features aggressive styling with the front headlight taking inspiration from the Pulsar 200 NS. Looking at the exhaust, we feel the Suzuki Gixer will be powered by a 150cc, 4-valve engine but the fins for air-cooling are very visible so this is most likely an update to the GS150R.

What further amplifies this being another 150cc offering is the the lack of a rear disc brake, an unseen omission even on 150cc bikes these day. The rear sports a 130 section tyre. The bike also sports a monoshock rear suspension.

An excerpts from source article,

Suzuki Motorcycle India’s intentions to make its presence strongly felt in the Indian market can be seen with the announcement of two new models close on the heels of the recently launched Inazuma in the 250cc segment – the Gixxer and the Let's.

The Gixxer gets contemporary design cues that look sharp and aggressive, and are likely to be well received. The bike will be available in five colours. It packs in a 150cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, four-stroke engine, specifications of which are not yet revealed. Comfort is taken care of by a telescopic front suspension, with a monoshock making its way at the rear.

The only problem with Suzuki is availability of spares, which becomes a pain in due course. On the other hand, Suzuki's build quality is good. The same isn't a problem with Yamahas and Hondas. The new FZ-V2 Fi and the CB Trigger ABS are good options.
