Suzuki opens bookings for GSX-S750

Suzuki Motorcycle India has started to accept bookings for its middle-weight naked motorcycle, the 2018 GSX-S750. There is no official word on the launch date as of now, but the estimated price of the bike is between Rs 9 lakh – 9.25 lakh, ex-showroom price.

The motorcycle looks lean, muscular and with its aggressive low set headlamp, it looks menacing. The styling is inspired from its big brother, the GSX-S1000 ABS.  It is powered by a 749cc, inline 4-cylinder, liquid cooled engine that puts out a claimed 113bhp and 81Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is not new as it was first seen in the GSX –R750 motorcycle, which was then tweaked for the GSR750. For the GSX-S750, Suzuki has added ventilation holes to the bottom side of the cylinders to reduce pumping losses. The steel twin spar frame is borrowed from GSR750. Saddle height is a very accessible 820mm. New bits on the motorcycle include a longer swingarm, chain adjustment system and new 10-spoke alloys. It also gets ride-by-wire throttle, three stage traction control that can be turned off and ABS. Front forks are 41mm USD, while the rear is a mono shock unit, both from Kayaba. It gets twin 310mm discs at the front and a single 260mm disc at the rear.

When launched, the GSX-S750 will go head on against rivals like the Triumph Street Triple S, Kawasaki Z900 and the Yamaha MT-09, which are priced at Rs 9.15 lakh (ex-showroom), Rs 7.68 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and Rs 9.55 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively.
