Suzuki has very India specific bikes and it is a good thing but this way we miss out on some global products which are really good bikes. Let’s take a look at the Suzuki bikes that we want in India.
This is legendary bike in its latest avatar was shown at the 2020 Auto Expo. We really wish this bike was available in India. Apart from its oddball styling, the engine is a gem. It makes about 150 bhp of power from a 999cc engine. It also weighs 215 kgs. Suzuki Katana does get a fair bit of electronics but nothing fancy. Being a 4 cylinder, the company has provided it with low rpm assist which lets you sail through traffic without revving the bike much.
This is an offroader, it comes to India will decimate it all. The DR-Z400S comes with a liquid-cooled single cylinder 4 stroke engine. It has a 10-litre fuel tank and 146 kgs of weight. Also, the styling of this bike is very offroad oriented. With the DR-Z400 a person could go touring and even take it on trails without much modification. If it comes to India, it will take on the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
Suzuki V-Storm 250
This is a global model of the V-Storm. Even if Suzuki brings in the V-Strom 250 as a single-cylinder bike with the engine of the Gixxer it would be a great pic. Adventure motorcycles are rage in India and this bike would make for a great touring bike at an affordable price tag. Bringing the twin-cylinder 250cc engine would not be appreciated as it should be and so Suzuki should go for a lower price value than a motorcycle package as a whole.
Suzuki V-Storm 1050
In India, we do get the Suzuki V-Strom 650 and this has created a customer base for the Suzuki V-Strom 1050. This bike with its enormous 1000cc bike can compete with the like of the BMW and the Tiger.
The V-Storm 1050 also comes with an electronic package which is very useful on an adventure. As you can see above the Suzuki intelligent ride system has a slew of features all of which can make your long tips on a bike very comfortable.
The last bike on our list is the Suzuki SV650. This has a blue trellis frame and a round headlight suggesting that this is a mix of modern and retro features. The SV 650 has a 200kg weight and makes about 75 bhp of power. This is a perfect middleweight which might make for a value for money bike. The V-twin engine is quite good and it does make for a smooth delivery of power.
