Suzuki has recently released a new product in India, and the country’s Suzuki bike dealers are already set to welcome the new arrival.
The international motorcycle company launched the 2018 GSX-S750 street bike, with minimum pricing sitting at around Rs. 7.45 lak/US$11,000. Currently, this new bike is on offer at India’s Suzuki bike dealers in 2 colour schemes: Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Daring Red and Metallic Triton Blue/Glass Sparkle Black. The bike will be built CKD, meaning that parts will be brought in from abroad into India for assembly.
The GSX-S750 is a simple street bike, clocking in at 2,125mm long, 785mm wide and 1,055mm tall. It features a 1,455mm wheelbase with a seat set at a height of 820 accompanying the 16-liter fuel tank. The bike also features a V-shaped headlamp with the position lights located on each side of the fairing, which also has, inside in, an LCD instrument panel. Unlike most of the bikes of its class, the GSX-S750 opts for more conventional handlebars instead of the clip-on units of its ilk.
Out in the back, the bike features split seating as well as a side-mounted exhaust muffler with a silver heat shield. For suspension, the bike feature KYB inverted telescopic forks up front and a monoshock out back, which connect it to its 17-inch alloy wheels in black finish. The engine and crankcase, sitting on top of a fairing placed under them, share the rims’ black finish.
This new bike will be powered by a 749 cc, 4-cylinder engine providing 113 BHP @ 10,300 rpm, complimented by a 6-speed transmission. For stopping power, twin 310 mm petal-type discs ensure the bike can stop if needed, and ABS and 3-mode traction control allow for considerable control over the vehicle. Notably, the bike features something call “Low RPM assist” that prevents the engine from dropping to below a certain RPM threshold. This allows the rider to accelerate from a standstill without using the throttle, only by releasing the clutch.
There has been some anticipation regarding this new release, following its reveal at the 2018 Auto Expo. Notably, there’s also news of a leaked patent for a Haojue HJ300, Haojue being a Chinese manufacturer with a history of working with Suzuki, with motorcycle publications in India awaiting the new bike following Suzuki’s announcement that they’ll be debuting a new bike for the 250-300cc segment.
