Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd has thrilled Indian bike aficionados with the launch of its highly awaited bikes - the GSX-R1000 and Bandit1250S.
These bikes which have been successfully reining supreme in the international market for long were desperately sought in India. Both GSX-R1000 and Bandit1250S are seen as ultimate machines and are known for their powerful engines and futuristic styling.
Launching the charismatic bikes, Mr. Katsumi Takata, Chairman, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. said, “This launch is in line with our aim to deliver outstanding technology and performance to the Indian market. We are pleased to offer exciting riding experience to pro-bikers.”
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Atul Gupta, Vice President (Sales and Marketing), Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Suzuki has been delivering superior technology which has been proven worldwide. We intend to showcase the same in India. With the launch of these two bikes, we extend our Big Bikes range in India and continue the momentum that had begun with the launch of Hayabusa and Intruder a year ago. Suzuki is all set to support the craziest and sportiest young enthusiasts who are looking for these iconic mean machines.”
The GSX – R1000 is available in two colours – White / Blue & Black /Silver and is priced at Rs. 12,75,000.00 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
The all-new chassis on the Gixxer with a shorter wheelbase allows you to maintain speed while taking on corners, while a longer swingarm delivers greater traction when powering out of them. A slipper clutch provides an even smoother downshift and greater stability when approaching trickier bends. Ride quality is improved thanks to big piston forks, the first 1000cc production bike to be fitted with them. Three separate performance settings provide instant control over the power delivery to suit the specific road types and conditions, while monoblock front brake calipers increase overall stopping power.
The BANDIT 1250S is available in two colours - Metallic Gleam Gray & Pearl Nebular Black and is priced at Rs. 8, 50,000.00 (Ex-showroom, Delhi)
A state of the art liquid cooled engine sits at the heart of the Bandit providing smooth power and acceleration. In fact, with torque figures that are comparable to the GSX-R1000, but at a third of the engine speed, it produces phenomenal "roll on" performance. An adjustable seat height maximizes rider comfort.
The GSF1250S has a fuel injected double overhead camshaft (DOHC) power-plant with 1255cc of torque at your service. Delivering a wide spread of power, starting low down in the rev range, the six gear ratios takes full advantage of this torque resulting in extra smooth acceleration and inspiring power delivery, perfect for long distance rides.
The bikes have been launched today in 11 cities – Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Ludhiana, Bhubaneshwar, Raipur and Cochin.
