Suzuki GSX-R150 Looks Like a Worthy Adversary to Yamaha YZF-R15!
Suzuki earlier revealed the new GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 for the Indonesian market. Both these bikes are based on the new GSX-R125, which debuted at the Intermot 2016 and is headed to Europe. Out of these new Suzuki motorcycles, it is the GSX-R150 that has at least some relevance to the Indian market. Come to think of it, the new GSX-R150 has none other than the Yamaha YZF-R15 in its sights. Read on for Suzuki GSX-R150 India launch prospects, price, specifications, top speed, mileage and more.
The GSX-R150 shares much of its bodywork with the GSX-R125. However, it features a bigger engine that comes from the Suzuki Satria. The GSX-S150, on the other hand, is a street naked version of the GSX-R150. As we just said, the former is a pretty important product. The new Suzuki could become a worthy alternative to both the R15 and the Honda CBR150R. With a dry weight of just 126 KGs and a best-in-segment power output of 19.17 PS, the GSX-R150 can become the next big thing in the world of lightweight, low displacement performance motorcycles.
Suzuki GSX-R150 India Launch Date
|Launch Date||Early 2018|
It is currently too early to speculate on the Suzuki GSX-R150 launch date. However, one simply can’t fail to notice the terrific sense its makes for Suzuki Motorcycles India Private Ltd (SMIPL) to launch this bike in India. If and when launched, this bike will be slotted above the Gixxer SF. As we’ve already said, it will lock horns with the Yamaha YZF-R15 and Honda CBR150R. Some speculate abound that the Suzuki GSX-R150 will make its India debut at the Auto Expo 2018. We are keeping our fingers crossed.
Suzuki GSX-R150 India Price
|Ex-showroom Price||₹ 1,20,000|

Suzuki GSX-R150 India – Mileage
|Average Mileage||49 KMPL|
