Suzuki GZ150 will challenge the Bajaj Avenger Street 150; second model to enter 150 cc cruiser segment in India
Suzuki is expected to bring its GZ150 cruiser motorcycle in India in 2017. In that case, the motorcycle will be the second model to enter the domestic market’s 150 cc cruiser segment and it will challenge the Bajaj Avenger Street 150 upon arrival. In order to make it competitive, the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer could price it aggressively at around Rs. 90,000 (ex-showroom).
Suzuki has seen impressive success in the country market with Gixxer series. The company currently sells commuter bikes, sportbikes and automatic scooters here. If the GZ150 is launched, it would make the brand’s entry in new segment. Considering the success of the Bajaj Avenger Street 150, the Suzuki GZ150 is assumed to receive a positive response if priced right.
Speaking about the design of the Suzuki GZ150, the motorcycle sports a classic retro cruiser stance. It gets round headlamp, a wide and uplifted cruiser handlebar, twin-pod instrument cluster, chunky and muscular fuel tank. The split seats offer comfortable riding position and good control over the machine. The pillion rider gets a well cushioned backrest. Rear gets a chunky taillight and there are two luggage boxes at both sides.
Dimensionally, the Suzuki GZ150 cruiser motorcycle comes measuring 2,250 mm in length, 900 mm in width and 1,160 mm in height. Overall, the motorcycle appears a lot like the Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220 with its entire design. It runs on 18-inch front alloy wheel and 16-inch rear alloy wheel wrapped with meaty tyres. On the suspension front, the motorcycle gets telescopic front forks and rear shock absorber.
