Suzuki India Launches SlingShot 125

While the whole world is hoping for a 125cc sportsbike from the Japanese brand, Suzuki India has debuted the 125cc SlingShot, a smaller street touring machine. Inspired by its bigger siblings the GSX-R series, the Suzuki SlingShot is targeted at the mass segment, and Indian customers are likely to be quickly drawn to the idea of owning such a bike.

"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,"
Katsumi Takata (Chairman, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd.) said in a release.

The SlingShot boasts sharp edgy head lamps, an all new front fender design and a convenient gear position indicator for ease in riding in
city traffic. The bike is fitted with a BS carburettor with a Throttle Position Switch (TPS) that optimizes the ignition timing, coupled with a DC - CDI along with the Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system.

"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," added Atul Gupta, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd.

The Suzuki SlingShot 125 is available in four different colors (Metallic Mustard Yellow, Metallic Fox Orange, Candy Antares Red and Pearl Nebular Black) and it is priced at Rs. 50,949 (approx. US$1,085 at the current exchange rate) for the Drum brake/Spoke wheels version while the Drum/Alloy version will be available at Rs. 52,998 (US$1,130).
