On the other hand, Yamaha FZs V3 can churn out 13 bhp maximum power and 12.8 Nm torque.
Fuel Efficiency: The air-cooled cooling system is used in both motorcycles. But fuel injection system used in Yamaha FZs V3 and V2. That’s why V2 and V3 can deliver better mileage than Gixxer. Test ride and User review show us that, including city and highway FZs V3 can provide 42 km/l and Gixxer can 40 km/l.
Acceleration: Gixxers acceleration is higher than FZs V3, because of its high engine performance and carburetor fuel system. Though Yamaha made some up-gradation in the engine setting of V3.

The engine size is almost the same as other bike but the Gixxers engine is slightly wider like other Suzuki’s motorcycle. That’s why the engine got more space to produce more power.
For that, Gixxer stays ahead in acceleration as well as in top speed. Gixxer can reach the top speed of 132 km/h where Fzs V3 only can 117 km/h. Basically every manufacturing company has their own motive. That’s why Yamaha gives priority in braking and comfort.
Braking: All Japanese brands are concerned about their braking system. But Yamaha is a step ahead in braking. Yamaha FZs V3’s braking system got more improved by adding single-channel ABS. Both bikes tyre size is the same where 100/80-17 in front and 140/60 – 17 in the rear. Wide tyres are helpful for better braking and controlling. Sixers braking is also good in this segment specially in the double-disc version. But FZs V3 will be a step ahead because of its single-channel ABS on the front wheel.
Comfort: Both bikes handlebar is slightly up-raised and it gives better feedback in long riding. though both bikes are perfect for a long ride but FZs V3 will ahead for a touring motorcycle. Length, height, and width are almost the same in both bikes. But FZs V3’s shape, structure, and the fuel tank is muscular that’s why it looks slightly bigger than Gixxer.

Price Analysis: While Yamaha FZs V3 just launched a couple of months ago and its demand is too high. On the other side, Yamaha’s Bangladesh distributor ACI Motors ltd import bikes in CBU structure and for that, they have to pay a high amount of Tax. Where Suzuki started to assemble their bikes in Bangladesh. For that in this Eid, you can grab a Suzuki gixxer only at just 191,950 BDT.

Which one is better its only depends on bikers’ choice. Who will like top speed, acceleration and sound then he will choose Suzuki Gixxer and who likes comfort, braking, and fuel efficiency then Yamaha FZs V3 will suitable for him/her.
If you want to have our opinion then we will choose FZs V3 because of its single-channel ABS but not considering the price.
