Suzuki Access 125 is India’s favourite 125 cc scooter for a long time. In terms of sales, Suzuki Access 125 has never been dethroned by any 125 cc scooter in the segment. One of the reasons for its success is its peppy engine. And another one is, of course, the pricing, it is literally priced t par of some of the 110 cc scooters. Nevertheless, in the blog, we will be comparing its performance, mileage and other engine aspects with some of the 125 cc scooters. This will help us to better judge the Access 125.
Let’s first have a look over the technical specifications of the scooter. It comes with a 124 cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine. The engine produces about 8.6 bhp max power and 10 Nm of peak torque. When compared to other 125 scooters in the market, its not the segment leader but also not the least powerful. It sits nicely in between the segment in terms of power.
Now above were the figures displayed on the paper, however, Suzuki Access 125 is a splendid scooter in real-world conditions. It has a nice low-end torque due to its small 10-inch wheel at the rear whereas most of the 125 cc bikes come with the 12-inch rear wheel. In terms of acceleration, even TVS Ntorq struggles to overtake the Access 125. However, the smaller 10-inch wheel can look a bit awkward some times. Another good thing about the Suzuki Access 125 engine is its refinement. And why shouldn’t you expect it from the renowned Japanese brand? The scooter has a very plush and butter-smooth ride in its mid-range where you will be spending a lot more time.
When you are talking about the budget scooter we really can’t miss the mileage. Suzuki Access 125 has been claimed to return more than 60 km/l by the manufacturer. However, we can expect the real-world mileage about 55 km/l which is good indeed. Due to its good mileage, the brand uses “Kam Peeta hai” as a key marketing phrase.
Along with good peppy performance and mileage, the BS6 Suzuki Access 125 also features some of the segment-leading features. Suzuki Access comes with a long seat and a boot space that can accommodate a full-size helmet. Many 125 cc scooters miss out on boot space that can fit a full-size helmet. The latest BS6 model also comes with an external cap. So in terms of practicality, Suzuki Access 125 wears the winning cap.
