Suzuki GSX-R150 Looks Like a Worthy Adversary to Yamaha YZF-R15!

74

The Suzuki GSX-R150 is expected to launch in this year. The R150 has none other than the Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR 150R in its sights. With a dry weight of just 126 KGs and a best-in-segment power output of 19.17 PS, the bike can become the next big thing in the world of lightweight, low displacement performance bikes.

Suzuki earlier revealed the new Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 for the Indonesian market. The bike is expected to be priced aggressively around Rs 1.2 Lakh (ex-showroom). It gets clear sports bike looks with a lot of decals with the special ‘Suzuki’ decal over the bike. Both GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 bikes are based on the GSX-R125. Out of these new Suzuki motorcycles, it is the GSX-R150 that has at least some relevance to the Indian market. Suzuki Gixxer and Gixxer SF are performing quite well in the market. So, naturally, the brand image of Suzuki bikes in the Indian markets is good.  Read on for Suzuki GSX-R150 India launch prospects, price, specifications, top speed, mileage and more.

The GSX-R150 shares much of its bodywork with the GSX-R125. However, it features a bigger engine that comes from the Suzuki Satria. The GSX-S150, on the other hand, is a street naked version of the GSX-R150. As we just said, the former is a pretty important product. The new Suzuki could become a worthy alternative to both the R15 and the Honda CBR150R. Now, Suzuki GSX-R150 is expected to come to India this year carrying a competitive price on its head.

Suzuki GSX-R150 India Launch Date

Launch Date Second Half 2018

The official launch dates have not been mentioned yet. Suzuki GSX-R150 was showcased at the Auto Expo 2018, too. So definitely, the bike is expected to launch before this year end. If and when launched, this bike will be slotted above the Gixxer SF. As we’ve already said, it will lock horns with the Yamaha YZF-R15 and Honda CBR150R. We are keeping our fingers crossed for its launch in the Indian markets.

Suzuki GSX-R150 India Price

Ex-showroom Price ₹ 1,20,000

The GSX-R150, when it comes to India, could cost roughly Rs. 1,20,000. Such a price point will put it right in the R15 territory. While SMIPL is yet to establish a wide service network, the Gixxer and the Gixxer SF have already shown India’s acceptance of well-engineered Suzuki products.

Suzuki GSX-R150 India – Mileage

Average Mileage 49 KMPL

Thanks to a low displacement engine and a low dry weight, the Suzuki GSX-R150 has a claimed mileage of 49 KMPL. This is a tad higher than what the R15 offers. The new Suzuki’s good mix of high performance and decent fuel efficiency should help it attract the Indian bike buying lot.
