With the launch of the Gixxer Cup, Suzuki aims to set new standards for One Make Racing and lay the foundation of Suzuki‰Ûªs global racing culture in India, promoting motorsports and the spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie.

‰ÛÏSuzuki is a legendary name in the racing world and Suzuki motorcycles are among the fastest and most finely-crafted racing machines in the world." Atul Gupta, Executive Vice President of Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Ltd said.

"Apart from showcasing the real potential of the Gixxer SF to Indian motorsport enthusiasts, this championship will double-up as an opportunity for local racers to hone their skills by providing them an affordable platform to gain valuable racing experience and exposure to the dynamic sport of motorcycle racing.‰Û
