SUZUKI MOTORCYCLE INDIA HAVE launched their latest naked motorcycle, the GSX-S750, priced at Rs 7.45 lakh (exshowroom, Delhi). This new streetfighter comes with the heart of the legendary K5 GSX-R750 sport bike.
This is Suzuki’s first sub-1,000-cc big bike in the Indian market and we think it’s about time the Japanese manufacturer joined in the burgeoning middleweight segment. Performance of the engine — a compact, DOHC, liquid-cooled, inline four — has been toned down for street duty and it makes 114 PS and 81 Nm in the current state of tune. The design, similar to the larger GSX-S1000, features sharp, aggressive lines and minimalistic bodywork, typical of today’s streetfighters, with a relaxed, forward-canted riding position.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 features three levels of traction control, ABS, a fulldigital dash and comes shod with sticky Bridgestone Battlax S21 tyres. You may read our review on page 54 of this issue.
