Suzuki Motorcycle India, subsidiary to the international Suzuki Motor Corporation, made an announcement on the 25th of April 2018, one that’s been eagerly awaited by the Suzuki motorbike dealers in the country for quite some time now; the launch of the GSX-S750 in the country.
Originally, the GSX-S750 was shown off to India’s motor enthusiasts at the 2018 Auto Expo, and now, the bike is launching across the country, to be sold at Rs 745,000 or about US$11,000. The Suzuki Big Bikes dealerships across India are now taking bookings for the new bike, and the first batch of bikes is expected to be shipped sometime in May. For those looking to head for their Suzuki motorbike dealers, the bike will be available in 2 color schemes: Metallic Triton Blue/Glass Sparkle Black and Glass Sparkle Black/Candy Daring Red.
The new model resembles its cousin, the Suzuki GSX-S1000, maintaining the same aggressive styling but scaled down, as the GSX-S750 measures in at 2,125mm and 1,055mm in height and length, respectively, with a 1,455mm wheelbase and a seat set at the height of 820mm next to its fuel tank. An all-digital LCD instrument console provides info to the rider and allows access to the bike’s three traction control system.
The motorbike is powered by a 749cc, liquid-cooled DOHC in-line engine with four cylinders, giving it 114hp @ 10,500 rpm, as well as 81Nm of torque @ 9,000 rpm. The bike’s 6-speed gearbox transmits its power to its Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S21 tires, set with 17-inch alloy wheels. Stopping power is provided by Nissin Brake-powered four-piston twin disc brakes up front, with a 240mm single-piston caliper out back. The dual-channel ABS that’s standard in most motorcycles is, of course, also present. The bike’s fuel tank can hold up to 16 liters, and the whole thing itself weighs in a 215kg, a bit higher than average.
The bike will release on the market, and is expected to clash with the Triumph Street Triple S, the Yamaha MT-09 and the Kawasaki Z900.
Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director for Suzuki Motorcycle India says that the GSX-S750 is not only Suzuki’s first release for the financial year of 2018, but is also their first sub-1,000cc product.
