About Suzuki TXR 150 Gamma

In the 1990s, the Suzuki TXR 150 Gamma, a two-stroke motorcycle, was quite popular in Malaysia. It was released together with its identical twin, the TXR 150. (without Gamma). In comparison to the TXR, the TXR Gamma has a larger tank and also at the front fairing and tail design that is subtly different from one another.

In Malaysia, it was marketed as the Suzuki TXR 150; in Indonesia, it was marketed as the Suzuki RGR 150; and in Thailand, it was marketed as the Suzuki RGV 150.

The Suzuki TXR 150 Gamma is a reissue of the TXR Panther

As far as I know, these TXR twins are a reissue model after the Suzuki Panther 150 from the 1980s. There is no difference between Suzuki Panther and its second coming, TXR 150 except for Txr Gamma. The Panther is the same model as Txr 150, and of course, a new paint design was given to it to look fresh for marketing purposes.

And the big update given to Gamma is the electrical system. It used a 12v coil while Panther used a 6v coil.

Panther Jerung

Suzuki Panther and Suzuki Panther Jerung are two different iterations of the 1980s model. When a model is referred to as the Panther Jerung, it is because its head was designed to look like a shark, shark in Malay means “Jerung” .

The Suzuki Panther uses a small fairing that is only attached to the handle, and if you turn the bike, the headlamp follows. For Panther Jerung, it uses a semi-full front fairing which is quite long and the headlamp doesn’t move when you turn the steering, just like the fairing on superbikes.
