Suzuki Motors Lanka Ltd. has showcased the Suzuki Let’s automatic scooter at the 2014 Colombo Motor Show. The two-wheeler is scheduled to go on sale in the island later this year.
The Let’s competes with the Honda Activa, Hero Pleasure, Yamaha Ray and Mahindra Gusto, and is powered by a 112.8 cc air-cooled four-stroke engine which is paired to a CVT, and delivers 8.7 bhp and 9 Nm of torque. The SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) engine has a claimed mileage of 63 km/l under Indian riding conditions.
In terms of design, the Let’s has a unisex appeal with compact dimensions. The scooter measures 1,805 mm in length, 655 mm in width, 1,120 mm in height and 1,250 mm in wheelbase. The seat height and ground clearance are at 765 mm and 160 mm respectively. At 98 kg, the Let’s is the lightest contender in its segment.
The front is suspended by telescopic fork while the rear gets a coil spring shock absorber. The 10-inch wheels come shod with 90/100 section tubeless tyres. Notable features include safety shutter for the ignition, maintenance-free battery and an optional mobile charger.
To be imported from India, the Suzuki Let’s is estimated to be priced at LKR 215,000 (around INR 1.01 lakhs).
