    • (Subha ho gaya Mamu. Chal avi uthja). Suzuki Gixxer 150 is better than Yamaha SZrr. I’m a Yamaha fan, but this time I will go for Suzuki. Few days earlier I have test ride both bikes and undoubtedly saying that Gixxer is far better than SZrr.

      • I m also fan of suzuki but szrr is far better than gixxer…might be gixxer having more speed then szrr…

  • i have experience with gixxer and SZ rr version 1 and think the gixxer is better if you cencern for mileage
