“We are confident that these bikes will capture the imagination of a whole generation of bikers who are looking for something extra.”

“Our association with John Abraham has evolved into a strong relationship. A passionate biker himself, John has added a new dimension to our brand image. As an advisor also, he has given his value-additions towards our company’s initiatives.”

Powering the new SZ and SZ-X is an all-new 4-Stroke air-cooled, SOHC single cylinder with 153cc engine that has been tuned for optimum performance i.e. Extra Power in the low to mid-speed range thereby ensuring a stress-free ride on Indian roads.

The bikes are equipped with AI System and a large-capacity muffler with catalyzer for cleaner exhaust. The bikes flaunt some cutting edge design structures like the headlight cowl with 3-dimensional slanting line which along with a sporty fender with split look enhances the look of bikes.

There is a large capacity 14L fuel tank which gives the ability to go Extra Mile. The long cushioned seat ensures comfortable riding position enabling a straighter back and Extra Comfort while commuting long distances.

SZ-X is also equipped with some of the finest technologies like electric starter and a windscreen to cut inward air swirl, thus making a hassle free riding experience for the rider.

Adding to SZ and SZ-X charisma are the sophisticated meter panel, shroud with dynamic image, modern look dual tail lights, full plastic chain case (gives protection from dust & water), robust side cover and 5-spoke cast wheel.

The new YBR 125 motorcycle, on the other hand, has chiseled looks and enthralls the commuter with a comfortable riding experience.

The motorcycle is targeted towards executive segment customers who want a commuter bike that has a universally accepted design, gives a feeling of solidity & robustness and satisfactory mileage at an affordable price.

The bike is equipped with 123cc engine and 4-Speed gear box. YBR 125 will be available in three colors – Red, Black and Black-Red colors. Booking of the bikes will start immediately.
