The new version of GSX150R, which is being tested by Japanese motorcycle maker Suzuki, snapped during the process in Indonesia.
The pictures taken by iwanbanaran.com indicate that the design of the 2017 Suzuki GSX150R is heavily inspired by the Gixxer SF, the fully faired 150cc motorcycle on sale in India. The motorcycle that has been spied is fully under camouflage and yet hint that the fairing, swig-arm and the alloy wheels are identical to the Gixxer SF. The head lamp and tail lamp have been slightly tweaked. The twin exhaust has received a chrome tip. The foot pegs are also pushed slightly back to give the rider a committed position.
2017 Suzuki GSX150R is expected to flaunt an LED headlight, a fully-digital instrument cluster and disc brakes at both wheels. Though there is no word on the powertrain, it is expected that it will share Gixxer's mill. The 154.9cc, single-cylinder engine in Gixxer SF churns out a maximum power output of 14.6bhp at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 14Nm at 6,000rpm mated to five-speed manual transmission.
Apart from the GSX150R, Suzuki is also working on the GSX-R250. The 250cc fully-faired motorcycle will be a mini GSX-R1000 in terms of design. Reports say that the GSX-R250 will use the retuned 250cc twin-cylinder engine from the Inazuma motorcycle of Suzuki's stable. The GSX-R250 is expected to make a debut at the EICMA show in November 2016.
