4 Suzuki Dirt bikes are going to launch in India very soon. However, these bikes would not be legal to drive on public roads and will be for off-roading. The bikes will range from 50cc to 450cc engines.
Dirt bikes are a rarity in India. Obviously, they cannot run on the streets because of the lack of headlights, tail lights, turn indicators and public road tires. Now, Suzuki is launching 4 dirt bikes in India purely for off-roading and Enduro purposes. The engines will range from 50cc to 450cc. The price range for these bikes start at Rs 2.65 Lakhs and it goes up to Rs 8.75 Lakhs (ex-showroom prices). With these steep prices, the models will be CBU and the dealers have said that once the order is placed, it will take 15-20 days for the model to be delivered. Currently, there are very limited dirt bikes in India, including 2 from Kawasaki. Check out the details here of these Suzuki dirt bikes.
