As per FMSCI regulations, all riders competing in the Gixxer Cup have undergone training sessions prior to the start of the season to procure racing licenses. The series is organised with the support of FIM and under the aegis of the Federation of Motorsports Club of India (FMSCI) in association with JK Tyre Motorsports. The first three rounds will be held at the Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore while the finale will be held at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.

Commenting on the new season of Suzuki Gixxer Cup, Koichiro Hirao, Company Head, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. said, "As an extension to Suzuki's global racing legacy, Suzuki Motorcycle India is committed to provide racing experience to all motorsports enthusiasts in the country. Given the limited training infrastructure and awareness about the sport, we take pride in providing a platform for potential riders wanting to take-up racing as a career option. In the last four years, we have received tremendous responses from the participants across the country and look forward to an exhilarating and a successful championship this year. With the growing popularity of motorsports, we have also launched the MotoGP edition of Suzuki GIXXER SF last week to connect with the racing spirit."
