Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) has launched the Suzuki GSX-S750 in the country at an ex-showroom, New Delhi price of INR 7,45,000.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 is the brand’s first sub-1,000 cc big-bike in the country, and is the second CKD product after the Hayabusa. The Japanese brand showcased the motorcycle at the 2018 Auto Expo in February. Featuring a chiselled fuel tank, vented front fender, light rear fender, moulded mirrors, and angular tail section with integrated LED taillight, the bike bears the moniker ‘Apex Predator’. Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd. said:
We had made a commitment to launch several new and premium products every year for the Indian-market. GSX-S750 is not just the first new offering from Suzuki for the new financial year, but is also our first-product in the sub-1000cc big-bike segment. As our second CKD model in India, we are confident that the GSX-S750 will further strengthen the ‘GSX’ brand, which is Suzuki’s DNA in motorcycles.
The motorcycle draws power from a 749 cc in-line four-cylinder DOHC engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection. Pairing with a 6-speed transmission, it generates 84 kW at 10,500 rpm, and 81 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The bike features Suzuki Easy Start System for convenient starts, and a three-mode traction control system. Mode one is for sport riding; mode two for typical road conditions, and mode three delivers maximum traction control when riding in poor conditions. Apart from these, there is also the low-rpm assist for easy manoeuvring in traffic.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 rides on KYB upside down front fork and a link-type monoshock both with adjustable preload. Brakes include twin petal discs up front and a single petal disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS. The bike is available in two colour variants - Metallic Triton Blue/Glass Sparkle Black and Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Daring Red. Its primary competitor in the segment would be the Triumph Street Triple S.
