Suzuki India Debuts 125cc SlingShot

Suzuki Motorcycles

Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading two-wheeler manufacturers Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, recently launched the much awaited Suzuki SlingShot. The 125cc Suzuki SlingShot was launched in the presence of senior Suzuki Motorcycle India officials.

Targeted at the mass segment, the Suzuki SlingShot is positioned to fill the void that currently exists between the 100 cc and the 150 cc segments without compromising on the key parameters that a customer aspires for – style of a 150 cc and the efficiency of a 100 cc bike.

The Suzuki SlingShot underscores Suzuki’s commitment to introduce products of global standards that meets an Indian customer’s requirement.

Katsumi Takata (Chairman, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd.) says, "Suzuki is a brand trusted worldwide for its superior technology and uncompromised quality and we have amply displayed this to our commitment to India by launching products, from the GS150R to the Hayabusa, Gixxer and Bandit, that have generated tremendous response from customers. The same global promise of Suzuki ensures that our customers in India get same uncompromising quality, style, performance and comfort in the Suzuki SlingShot."

Atul Gupta (Vice President (Sales and Marketing), Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd.) says: "It has been our constant endeavor to capitalize on emerging opportunities in the Indian motorcycle market and the Suzuki SlingShot is a direct result of us listening to what the customers want and delivering a world class product that meets their requirements."

"The Suzuki SlingShot offers a complete package in terms of Style, Comfort, Performance and Practicality – all combined in a 125 cc bike. The customer wanted a bike that was as frugal on fuel as a 100 cc bike, yet had the looks to match a 150 cc premium bike combined with a price point that made the product affordable yet met all requirements – which the Suzuki SlingShot offers."

Inspired by its bigger siblings the GSX-R series, the Suzuki SlingShot boasts of sharp edgy head lamps, an all new front fender design and a convenient gear position indicator for ease in riding in city traffic. A state-of-the-art engine fed by a BS carburettor with a Throttle Position Switch (TPS) optimizes the ignition timing coupled with a DC – CDI along with the Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system results in obtaining high combustion efficiency for enhanced mileage and reduced emissions.

With a newly designed sturdy upswept frame construct with a longer swing arm coupled with a preload adjustable rear suspension and a race inspired light weight alloy provides the Suzuki Sling Shot with the perfect balance and agility for varied road conditions without compromising on comfort and ergonomics.

The Suzuki SlingShot is available in four colors – Metallic Mustard Yellow, Metallic Fox Orange, Candy Antares Red and Pearl Nebular Black.
