Was it worth the wait?
Remember when Suzuki announced that they would be assembling the Suzuki Hayabusa in India. It was a great news for all the fans of the iconic motorcycle because being assembled in India meant lower overall cost of the motorcycle. Now the second motorcycle which will be assembled right here in India is the Suzuki GSX S750, the Naked Street-fighter. Let’s see what this motorcycle offers, but first check out this official promotional video from Suzuki
749cc inline 4-cylinder engine
Being a Naked Street-fighter, the power and toque figures are quite high. The Suzuki GSX S750 is powered by a 749cc inline 4-cylinder liquid cooled engine. This engine, which is a re-tuned version of the Suzuki GSX R, produces peak power of 111 bhp @10500 RPM. For transmission the GSX S750 uses 6-speed constant mesh gearbox. The fuel tank capacity is a nice 16L. Suzuki claims a mileage of 20.4km per liter, This calculates the overall maximum range of the motorcycle to be approx 320 kilometers.
The GSX S750 offers a lot more features to ensure a smooth journey. First of which is the Three-mode Traction Control system. “Mode one is for sport riding with minimal intervention; mode two offers the ideal balance for typical road conditions; and mode three delivers maximum traction control when riding in poor conditions.” The motorcycle also comes with Low RPM Assist which controls the engine speed so that the RPM does not drop below to what is necessary to maintain a smooth idle.
The Apex Predator
The Suzuki GSX S750 takes much of its design from its older sibling, the GSX-S1000. The front headlamp is the same unit used in both the motorcycles. The changes in the body design are done to make it look more aggressive on the the streets. For braking the motorcycle relies on twin disk brake at the front and a single disk brake at the rear. It is also great to confirm that the GSX S750 will come with standard ABS. The front suspension unit features KYB Inverted telescopic suspension setup and for the rear a Link type, coil spring suspension setup.
The GSX-S750 features a lightweight, brightness-adjustable LCD instrument panel. This instrument panel is able to show the speedometer, tachometer, traction control mode status, gear position, odometer, dual trip-meters, coolant temperatures, driving range, fuel consumption, and a clock. You can also personalize the tachometer readout from a choice of five display patterns.
Well from the looks and engine performance, the Suzuki GSX S750 looks like a great motorcycle. The great news is that its launch might be just around the corner, maybe this month.
