    Default Gixxer or Gixxer SF ?

    Hi Moto Enthusiasts,

    I'm planning to buy my first bike and I'm confused between Gixxer and Gixxer SF. I rode both the bikes. I'm very comfortable with Gixxer except I'm confused whether I can make occasional long rides (200 - 250 kms). This is where I feel whether I should buy Gixxer SF. On the other hand, though I like Gixxer SF since mostly I will be commuting in the city I'm thinking Gixxer SF will be an overkill. I also have little problem with their Mirrors which I do not that comfortable.

    My only query is will I able to make an occasional tour on naked Gixxer.

    Thanks for your Patience . . . .

    What bike query approved!

    Occasional long hauls won't be a problem at all on any naked bike. The problem with touring on naked bike is the wind blast and the resultant fatigue that it causes. Otherwise, a naked street bike is always preferred for long rides for its relatively comfortable sitting position.

    Both the bikes have the exact same specs, brother. So it is just a matter of preference and budget.
    You can use both of them for city commutes and long tours.

    Choose what you prefer, you can't go wrong with any of them.

    If you like faired bikes and can spend more, go for the faired one.
    If you like naked street bike, go for the normal one.

    Remember..The money will also matter if you crash, a faired bike will cost you much more in repairs than a naked bike, if you crash.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    [QUOTE=ArunKumar89;1208350 I also have little problem with their Mirrors which I do not that comfortable.[/QUOTE] Many have replaced stock with naked's mirrors, those fit on handlebar.

    I guess from next fiscal year,

    SF will have FI and rear disc-brake soon.
    naked will have rear disc brake only.

    The best bike is always the one you like. If you wait for 204 months the new Gixxer will be launched near your dealer.
    With rear disks and FI if you get SF.
    I would suggest going for the newer model since it will have more features and a little better mileage over the carb version better throttle response.

    I would go for Naked if I was doing a ton of City riding and some long rides but def would go for SF with FI if i wanted more smooth bike.

    Hi everyone . . . thank you for all your suggestions. Decided on naked gixxer with rear disc as I feel I enjoy the naked more than the faired one . I'm not sure when Suzuki will exactly launch the naked with rear disc option. Keeping fingers crossed.

    Hi everyone . . . . I just read in other xbhp post that Suzuki will not launch rear disc variant till next year (xbhpian mentioned that he got that reply from a regional manager in bangalore)

    Now I'm confused. Also I have been reading rave reviews of apache 200v. The base version is just around 9k more than gixxer which comes with petal rear disc.

    I don't mind shelling extra 10k or so. But I have never driven an apache, so back to dilemma mode again.
