2011 Suzuki GS150R Refreshed Version Launch In India Soon-Specifications, Features & Price

0

The 150cc bike segment is the most looked after one and it has been justified by the fact that it has shown immense growth over a small period of time and is the probably the most attended one, As of date the market comprises of a number of good 150cc machines from manufacturers like Hero Honda (now Hero MotoCorp), Bajaj, Yamaha, Suzuki etc.. Out of all, Suzuki’s 150cc bike Suzuki GS150R hasn’t shown enough potential and remains to be at the bottom of the list.

Suzuki may not be happy with it but recently a person came across the new 2011 revised Suzuki GS150R and its pictures are out on Facebook.

The bike needed a revision sooner or later as all its foes are leading in the race. The pictures finally portray the bike as an appealing one and looks quite sporty. The visor has been changed a bit making it a bit more edgy and bold. Importantly the body graphics have been redesigned so as to give it a little extra oomph factor. The new white body color is another add-on which many buyers might like.

Surprising enough the rest of the features are pretty much the same and this certainly is a disappointment. We wished to get a new design but rather Suzuki is going to launch the same bike with minor cosmetic changes. Technically expectations are of getting the same engine sported by the current model.
