Suzuki GSX S750 price is spot on; buyers have a wonderful new mid-sized option.
Suzuki intends to strengthen its presence in the mid-capacity segment in India and they unveiled the beautiful naked GSX S750 at the recent Auto Expo in Noida. It has been launched recently and marks Suzuki’s presence in the sub 1000cc segment (it is Suzuki’s first big-bike under 1000cc in India).
GSX S750 is locally assembled (via CKD kits), just like Hayabusa. This roadster gets an aggressive stance with muscular lines and compact posture. It is powered by a 4-stroke, liquid cooled, 4-cylinder DOHC, 749 cc engine which produces 114 PS of peak power at 10,500 rpm and 81 Nm of max torque at 9000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox performs transmission duties.
It is equipped with ABS as standard, inverted telescopic shock absorbers, three riding modes, full-digital instrumentation and weighs about 211 kgs. 310 mm twin petal disc brakes perform braking duties, further aided by a single rear disc. It comes shod with 120 mm and 180 mm wide front and rear tyres respectively – both 17 incher Bridgestone Battlax HyperSport S21s!
There are two colours on offer – Metallic Triton Blue/Glass Sparkle Black and Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Daring Red and both of them were on display at the Auto Expo.
|GSX S750||Rs 7.45 Lakh|

Compare this with the prices of the other two rivals – the ‘Made in India’ CBR 650F (Rs 7.30 Lakh) and CBU Z900 (Rs 7.68 Lakh) and it becomes apparent that Suzuki has nailed it by undercutting the already aggressively priced Kawasaki! Its other rivals – Ducati Monster, Triumph Street Triple and Yamaha MT-09 – all are priced higher.
Dream Suzuki Delhi, an authorised Suzuki dealership in Delhi, has posted pics of customer delivery of the S750 and they are also offering test ride to prospect customers.
We have tested the motorcycle at BIC and here is its first ride review.
