Suzuki Motorcycles India Limited has been trying to get a major share of the scooter and bike market in India ever since it’s entry in the market after severing ties with TVS. It has had to take on very tough competition fromt he likes of Honda, Hero MotoCorp and Mahindra in the 110cc scooter segment and to help with this fight it has launched the Suzuki Let’s 110cc scooter. The scooter was showcased by the company at the 2014 Auto Expo, the product has been aimed at younger people with edgier styling, a catchy name (some may not agree) and the company has also roped in Parineeta Chopra as their brand ambassador.

Video Walk-around Review
The Suzuki Let’s 110cc scooter borrows some of it’s styling cues from it’s larger sibling the Swish, including the headlamps, the seat design etc. It is very contemporary in the looks department, you get a large headlamp surrounded by a small cowl. The indicators are integrated onto the front fairing and are new, black plastic elements continue down from the indicators which look a bit tacky. The front mudguard is a new design and the extension that partly covers the front forks look nice. Move to the side and you see that Suzuki has kept the scooter a bit conservative in terms of using graphics and stuff. The Swish 125 on the other hand gets dual-tone colours and graphics, the Let’s in comparison looks pretty plain. You do get dual-tone body panels in a sense with black plastic brakeing the monotony. The seat is pretty well designed and looks comfortable enough. Move to the rear and you see a pretty smart design, the silver grab rails are complement the design well. Thankfully, the exhaust is not as weird looking as it is on the Swish or the Access 125. Suzuki will not offer alloy wheels by the looks of things which is shame, but the pressed steel ones look okay on the Let’s.
The instrument cluster is pretty basic with a large speedometer, a small fuel-gauge on the top right and some tell-tale lights. The handlebar grips and the buttons are pretty well built, and exude the typical Suzuki finish.
