    Hi!
    I understand very well what buying first motorcycle is. You can check as many motorcycle on websites and still find some or other things missing in the ride you are trying to sure of.
    I bought a GixxerSF because that was a complete package based on my needs. I am a student so I need a good looking ride. Also, fuel and maintenance will be additional debits from my wallet. GixxerSF returns decent fuel economy of 45 kmpl. Next important thing is performance. It is good for overtaking and exhaust starts sounding serious when engine crosses 5k. Top speed is 120 kmph.
    To tame the power engine unleashed it has double disks and the grip of tyres never fades.
    I have used Pulsar 220 and bullet 350 for tours. They don't feel as planted at front end as GixxerSF does. That is very amusing thing for me. Sitting position is relaxing. You can be in saddle for 2-3 hrs before stopping to relax. l am planning to go Leh this year, and I have heard every vehicle suffers from less oxygen. Suzuki Gixxer SF with Fi is solution for that issue. You'll not need kick and choke for cold start and hence not provided either in Fi version.
    If you are willing to spend 1.05 lakhs for this bike, it will be nice choice according to me.
    All the best
    Sidharth

    Hi guys,
    I have decided to go with Fz s Fi V2.0. Will be booking the bike this week.
    However, can you guys suggest on the colour? I was thinking of Viper black but Matte green also looks decent.
    Does the colour fade eventually if it doesn't have matte finish?

    Hi guys, need some help here.
    Is it normal for bike engines to get heated and give a noise like "click... click..." after a small ride of about 10kms? Sorry for the poor description but iam not able attach the audio file I recorded. I heard the same noise from another bike in my parking lot too. Is it normal? It gets heated after a short ride of about 20kms and I can feel the heat on my legs. Iam scared coz it's a new bike.

    It sounds like clicking a mouse and is periodic. Does it mean something is wrong with my bike?
    PS: It's just been 2weeks and 1st service is also not done.

    If you hear the mouse button like CLICK During running then it could indicate a problem unless all other FZ owners faced the same in running in perhaps. (after shutting the engine down, if you hear CLICK CLICK, then relax its normal and its from the muffler.)

    If you feel the engine is heating up more than other FZs then it could be due to driving habits or due to some issue with transmission. Do you see any other signs such as engine oil depletion, smoke in exhaust, loss of power etc?

    Nope. It's just the heating of the engine. No leakage or battery loss.

    Bro it is a common sound after a period of ride, just to cool the engine some mechanical process will be running inside the power house. i used bullet pulsar n fz so i can say there s no big issues in that don't worry.
