Updated Suzuki GSX-R125 & GSX-S125 motorcycles are the perfect fit for our market, being as powerful as the KTM 125 Duke & RC 125…
Suzuki have updated their smallest GSX models with Euro-5 compliant engine and have launched the GSX-R125 faired and GSX-S125 naked motorcycle in Japan.
The major changes brought to the GSX twins are majorly mechanical in order to make both the bikes compliant with the stricter new Euro-5 emission norms.
The updated Suzuki GSX-R125 & GSX-S125 bikes in Japan get a new 124 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor producing 14.75 HP at 10,500 RPM and 11 Nm of torque at 8,500 RPM.
The faired GSX-R125 sports a full-fairing design coupled with a clip-on-esque handlebar. The naked GSX-S125, on the other hand, does not get a fairing and uses a flat handlebar to offer a comfortable and upright riding posture.
Some common features on both motorcycles include full-LED lighting, full-digital instrumentation, Suzuki Easy Start System, hazard switch, keyhole with protective shutter, and 10-spoke aluminium wheels.
On the hardware front, both bikes are equipped with similar components. The suspension system consists of Telescopic forks at the front coupled with a monoshock at the rear. The braking is taken care of by petal-type disc brakes on both wheels, aided by an ABS system as standard.
The updated Suzuki GSX-R125 is available in 3 paint options and has been priced at JPY 4,53,200 (~ Rs 2.70 lakh). The naked GSX-S125 is offered in 2 colours and is priced at JPY 4,20,200 (~ Rs 2.50 lakh).
Though these bikes are really good machines and a perfect fit for our motorcycle market, there is no probability of these two bikes making their way to our shores anytime soon.
