The Suzuki Gixxer SP is priced at Rs 80,726 while the Suzuki Gixxer SF SP is priced at Rs 88,857 (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

In comparison to the regular versions, the Gixxer SP and the Gixxer SF SP come equipped with body graphics, a Gixxer SP emblem, a maroon-colored seat and a clear lens LED tail lamp. In an official release, Suzuki has stated that the Gixxer SP and the Gixxer SF SP will be offered with a choice of matt fibroin grey and glass sparkle black colours.
Both the Gixxer special editions do not get any mechanical updates. Just like the regular version, they retain the 155cc single-cylinder engine which makes 14.8PS and 14Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission.
During the festive season, most motorcycle manufacturers typically see a sharp rise in sales. In a bid to lure more buyers, motorcycle companies typically launch special editions of their popular models during this time period. Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has also introduced a special edition of the CB Hornet 160R.
