Modified Suzuki Gixxer Wants to Transform and Take on Decepticons as it has been tastefully modified and is likely to perform well
Ever since the Suzuki Gixxer 155 came along a couple or so years ago, the fate of Suzuki’s two wheeler endeavor in India changed. The bike still stands tall as the best in the segment with its great handling and fetching design. In fact the new dual-tones which Suzuki has brought in have taken the styling quotient and the street presence of the bike even further. Now, understanding the inherent brilliance of the product, it is but obvious that that the Gixxer has already build a vast fan following here. Now the smart folks of the Gixxer Club Pondicherry have given a Gixxer some nifty and interesting updates to elevate the hidden touring character of the bike. And the result, as you can see in these pictures, is very intriguing to say the least.
The mods on the standard Gixxer include a new twin headlamp unit that has a passing resemblance with the bigger Kawasaki nakeds and has a very Indonesian or Thai-sh aftermarket accessory feel to it. No doubt it has been incorporated pretty well and its gels rather well with the flow of the Gixxer’s original lines. A stylish (comparatively) large visor, custom rear view mirrors, chrome handlebars and a smart phone mount make up for the other installed after market accessories.
A rather elaborate and weird looking triple chrome pie element seems to serve as a new engine guard, we reckon, a darker theme on it would have been much more desirable to look it. Then the crash guards themselves have made way for crash bobbins. The blokes have concentrated on the rear of the bike as well, by removing the standard number plate recess and placing the indicators on the new custom tyre hugger. Here we would like to say that we miss the sleekness of the standard bike at the rear, but the new bit-fatter pillion seat should aid pillion comfort on long rides.
We aren’t sure if any modifications have been done to the buttery smooth 155cc single cylinder engine of the bike that makes a healthy 14.8 Ps @ 8000 RPM of maximum power and a peak torque rating of 14 Nm @ 6000 RPM. We kinda like this modification for a much better finishing than what we usually come across to. Do tell us what you think about this modified Gixxer for touring in comments section below.
