Suzuki Motorcycles has launched its seventh big bike for India, the GSX-S750. This is also their second locally assembled large capacity motorcycle after the mighty Hayabusa. The naked S750 carries an ex-showroom (Delhi) sticker price of Rs 7.45 lakh which makes it about Rs 15,000 more expensive than the lesser powered Honda CBR650F. However, it is Rs 23,000 cheaper than the Kawasaki Z900 and a massive Rs 1.26 lakh cheaper than the Triumph Street Triple.
The GSX-S750 was showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo earlier this year and promises to offer a comfortable ride, excellent handling and punchy performance from the K5 Gixxer-750 derived motor. The engine is good for 114 PS of power and 81 nm of torque, shaming most of its rivals in the number game. Top speed is expected to be over 220 km/h as per the speedometer display. Here is a quick video of the motorcycle:
The GSX-S750 looks a lot like the bigger S1000 that is also sold in India by Suzuki. And it continues to look aggressive with extensions of the tank literally hugging the radiator! We love the naked headlamp that now has the position lamps placed just outside. The bike also gets a now common LCD display that most riders acknowledge is easy to read. Duties up front are done by 41mm KYB sourced USD forks with twin 310mm dual disc brakes. The bike wears Bridgestone’s new Battlax Hypersport S21 tyres.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 does not get tech gizmos like slip or assist clutch but has features like low RPM assist and a three stage traction control. ABS, of course, is present here. With the new naked mid-capacity superbike, Suzuki is trying to make stronger inroads into the segment of sub 10 lakh rupee motorcycles. Deliveries will start this month itself and we can’t wait to ride the bike early next month. Stay tuned..
