Following the launch of the 110cc Suzuki Let’s, the company has recently updated the Suzuki Swish 125, with a few cosmetic changes.
The Swish is now available in a range of new body colours like glass sparkle black, candy antares red, metallic sonic silver, pearl glacier white and metallic triton blue. The Swish also gets a new instrument cluster, which is still analogue, with a few changes.
The Swish 125 uses a single-cylinder 124 cc engine that makes 8.6 hp and 9.8 Nm of peak torque. The scooter still doesn’t get disc brakes as an option, like the Honda Activa 125 that was recently launched does.
Similarly, the top-end Honda Activa 125 gets alloy wheels along with the disc brakes, absent in the Swish 125. However, this has resulted in a significant price difference. The Suzuki Swish costs Rs 50,212 (Ex-showroom, Mumbai), while the Honda Activa 125 costs Rs 56,607 (Ex-showroom, Mumbai) for the base model and Rs 62,588 (Ex-showroom, Mumbai) for the top-end model.
Recently, at the launch of the Suzuki Let’s in Chennai, Suzuki’s Atul Gupta, vice president for marketing, said that the Swish would also get mechanical changes in 2014.
