PLEASE NOTE- Suzuki will launch the Intruder 150, a motorcycle based on the GZ150, in India on November-7. CLICK HERE for full details
Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) is having a good run in India, courtesy of its Gixxer range of motorcycles. Both the Gixxer and the Gixxer SF have been quite successful in the country. However, the company has been absent from the fast-growing cruiser motorcycle segment till now. Not very long ago, Bajaj came up with a 150cc engine variant of its Avenger cruiser bike. And now, it looks like even SMIPL is gearing up to launch a similar low-displacement cruiser bike to rival the Avenger. The upcoming Suzuki 150cc Cruiser bike is known as the GZ150 in many markets. Here are all the available details on the Suzuki GZ150 cruiser motorcycle that could soon launch to India.
The company is yet to divulge any details regarding the launch date and the price of its upcoming 150cc cruiser bike. However, there are good chances that this motorcycle would launch in coming months and would have an ex-showroom price of roughly 80,000. The Avenger 150 has already received a largely favorable response from buyers in the 150cc segment. It seems that even Suzuki Motor India Pvt Ltd is readying itself to grab a chunk of the sales pie.
Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle India Launch Date
There are good chances that the new motorcycle would make its India debut at the Auto Expo 2018. Its market launch is expected to take place days after its showcase at the fast-approaching Delhi Motor Show 2018.

Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle Price in India
We expect the upcoming 150cc cruiser motorcycle from Suzuki to cost roughly Rs 80,000. This will make the motorcycle marginally costlier than the Avenger 150. However, there are enough chances it will be cheaper than the Gixxer. This will enable it to sell the bike alongside the Gixxer without either bike eating into another’s market share
Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle Specifications
|149cc, air-cooled, fuel-injected, single cylinder
|Dual Springs, 5-step adjustable
|Disc brake with 2-piston caliper
While certain reports go on to speculate that the upcoming cruiser motorcycle would share its engine with the Gixxer series. However, there are good chances that the upcoming model would come with a new 149cc motor. Powering this bike is a 149cc fuel-injected, air-cooled single cylinder engine. It makes 15BHP power and 11Nm torque. All that power and torque is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed transmission. The bike has a telescopic fork up front and 5-step adjustable dual springs at the back. A 2-piston disc brake up front and a drum back brake at the back handle the braking duties on the Suzuki GZ150.

|Fuel tank capacity (l)
The Suzuki GZ150 is a cruiser motorcycle. Hence, its wheelbase is a long 1,460mm. This should enable the bike to cruise on the highway in a stable manner. However, its 12-litre fuel tank seems small for what is essentially a bike that appeals to touring enthusiasts. However, due to its small displacement, it will still be quite easy to throw around in urban riding conditions.

Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle Design
So far, we haven’t seen even a single test mule of this motorcycle. However, there are good chances that the India-spec GZ150 would look almost exactly like the international-spec model. The upcoming 150cc model has a modern touch in its design while maintaining a cruiser bike form. The rear tyre will be pretty wide to give that mean look, while there will be bits like LED taillamps to give the bike a premium feel. Typical to cruiser motorcycles, this bike will offer high-raised handlebar, low seat height and a relaxed riding posture.
The GZ150 is Suzuki’s first low-displacement cruiser bike for India. Hence, a lot will ride on this bike’s success in the country. We will update you with more concrete information on the launch date and price of the Suzuki GZ150 cruiser motorcycle as soon as we get an official word from the company.
