We have all heard about the Gixxer face-lift that Suzuki was working on for quite some time. The Japanese automaker has unveiled the much awaited Gixxer face-lifts at the ongoing Indonesian motorcycle show. These two bikes are named Suzuki GSX-R150 and Suzuki GSX-S150. Both these bikes have a futuristic design and a more powerful engine than the present ones. Both the bikes come mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

GSX-R150 being the face-lifted version of the the Gixxer SF sports a fairing and has a super-bike type stance. While the GSX-S150 is the naked sibling whose design is borrowed from the GSX-S750. GSX-R150 looks like the GSX-250R unveiled earlier this year. Both these bikes get split handles and a higher set pillion seat. Moto GP edition stickers add handsome looks to these bikes. The pillion seat being high set even on the naked GSX-S150 looks a little odd while viewed from the side profile. Naked version gets sharp design with lower set headlights and a long front cowl. The indicators are placed above the headlights and the handlebar height almost matches the rear seat height.
