by mahavir on May 10, 2012

Suzuki Motorcycles has launched its much awaited affordable, high mileage 110cc motorcycle Hayate.  The company has officially announced its inaugural launch in Maharashtra and has priced the motorcycle very competitively in India. The kick start version is priced at ex-showroom 40,162 while the self start version has been priced Rs. 2,000 more compared to the base version. The bike name Hayate has been derived from Japanese word which means “Fresh Breeze”.

Suzuki Hayate: Affordable Bike with High Mileage 60-75km/litre

Suzuki Hayate has 112cc 4-stroke air cooled engine which generates maximum power of 8.4 PS and maximum torque of 8.8 Nm. It has got 4 speed transmission gear box. The engine has been designed to deliver excellent fuel efficiency which is trump card of commuter segment.  It is available in five color options Pearl Mirage White, Metallic Lush Green, Pearl Mica Red, GL Sparkle Black and Metallic Flint Grey. Suzuki Motorcycle has endorsed Salman Khan as a brand ambassador for Hayate. The company is aiming to sell around 10,000 units of this motorcycle.

Anand Thakur, head of national sales (SMIL) said, Maharashtra is an important market for Suzuki motorcycles. We see the Hayate securing a significant and distinct space for itself in the Indian motorcycle market by serving the needs of the first time motorcycle owner and people with regular commuting needs. The Hayate is a great option for customers looking for both uncompromising technology and value for money. We believe that Suzuki and Salman together will make an emotional connect with all sections of customers that Suzuki’s range of two-wheelers reaches out to.

It is to be seen how this motorcycle will perform against Hero Splendor, Passion, Newly launched Discover 4G, Honda’s upcoming Dream Yuga. It is also evident that the price war has started in 100cc segment. Bajaj Auto has priced its new Discover at Rs. 42,000 for the same reason. The heating up competition in 100cc segment will benefit customers only as they will have now better product at competitive price.

Suzuki should have launched the Gsr250 in India a long time ago but I guess Suzuki wants to capture the commuter market first.

Its going to be Suzuki Hayate, Honda Twister and Dream Yuga, TVS Star City, Bajaj Discover 100, and Splendour/Passion all competing against each other.

Splendour clearly needs some style upgrades. Also, after split with honda, more problems are being reported in new Splendor and Passion bikes. I wonder what hero has changed in them.

Seems like Hayate is really good value for money and will definitley be reliable.

Suzuki Hayate is cub of Sling Shot. But marginally refined version against slingshot. It is better choice against Hero Splendor. I think Hayate is better choice of any other 110cc cumetor.

Hayate should have a disc version too to outsell the competition.

Suzuki will soon provide disc brake option after sometime later…do visit your nearest Suzuki Showroom for test ride & further details on Hayate.

Looking at these pics, except the headlight, tail lamp and body graphics, the overall shape, stance and form seems to be resembling TVS Sport.

No.That’s not right.Better to give a disk brake then it will compete with CB Twister 110.But it will not reach south Indian people because Suzuki doesn’t have showrooms there.Suzuki must improve their service networks.
