Suzuki’s 150cc GIXXER topped the New Zealand registration tables as the most popular choice of road bike for 2018. With a great combination of sports bike styling, dual seating and responsive 150cc four stroke motor the GIXXER is not only economical to operate but also practical around town or on the open road, and even the race track!
Proven on the race track with Suzuki’s very own GIXXER CUP national series, the GSX150F has been put to the test and passed. Riders 14 to 21 are competing for ten thousand in prize money making this is the hottest class in road racing for 2019.
As with the racing many customers purchasing GIXXER are under 21 and starting out into motorcycling for the first time, this is an exciting injection of new riders into this market space. When you look at motorcycling as a commuting option it’s not only very cost effective with the savings on fuel significant, but when compared to the average motor vehicle there are less issues with parking, and the ability to negotiate traffic is one of the biggest benefits of owning a motorcycle.
With the GIXXER starting at just $2,995 plus on road costs it’s a very cost effective and time saving decision.
