Suzuki India has launched the Slingshot 125cc motorcycle for the Indian market. Styling is inspired by Suzuki’s international line of high-performance motorcycles while the motor is a 125cc air-cooled single-cylinder type. The engine also has a Suzuki Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection system to cut down on emissions.

The bike also gets sharp-looking alloys, with thin blades and Suzuki claim that they’re of the light-weight alloy variety. The motorcycle is, in all probability, based on the earlier 125cc Heat/Zeus motorcycles and will be available  in four colours.

Prices stand at Rs. 50, 949 (on-road price, Mumbai) for the Drum brake/Spoke wheels version while the Drum/Alloy version will be available at Rs. 52,998 (on-road, Mumbai).
