The Suzuki Access 125 is a fairly large scooter in for this price range. Suzuki portrays the Access as their flagship scooter. They are trying really hard to break away from the 110cc segment by offering a bit more with the Access and keeping the engine a 125 cc block.

Suzuki Access 125 Top Speed

Suzuki claim a top speed of 90km/h for the Suzuki Access 125. This may not be much but is still a bit more than the other scooters except for the Aprilia SR150. The Access is also mostly compared to the SR150 on occasions even though both the bikes are apart in price. The Access tries to combine efficiency with performance.

Stating this as a flagship, Suzuki has made this a full fledged scooter, performance wise and size wise too. Yes keeping the Suzuki Access 125 light and a very good ground clearance. Most of the brands now a days option for the light weight theory. I am really surprised how Suzuki has managed to keep the weigh less despite the large proportions. Even the 160 mm ground clearance is something very rare in scooters.

The power is spot on for a 124cc scooter, but what is impressive, is the amount of torque the Suzuki Access 125 generates. This may be the 2nd best to any scooter beaten by only the SR150 which is by the name a 150cc scooter. The scooter is quick of the lane and even reductions and increase in speed is effortless unlike other scooters. Along with the light weight the Suzuki Access 125 is nearly flawless.

Suzuki Access 125 Design

For starters, I can’t stop staring at the head lamp, as it looks like Jaadoo’s face upside down. The chrome ring around it adds a lot of class. Like most brands now a days, Suzuki has opted for the large side indicators on the front panel and they are indeed large. The centre part of the panel has an added body on it that looks like a chest protector from Ironman movie. Telescopic forks are now like a premium feature and good to see it on this bike too. What I love is that the Suzuki Access 125 now has a front disc brake. This makes braking so much better. From the side the seat is pretty closed to the footboard but the seat is generously long.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the Banta’s of mumbai go triple seat on this bike too, that too with ease. (Riding Triple is Hazardous to Health). The name badge is chrome and even more chrome on the exhaust. Suzuki has thought of ergonomics well. There is a 12v power output to charge your phone and a slot for phone or water bottle just below it. Many brands keep this pocket on the other side and I am still trying to figure why.

Sometimes simplicity is awesome and so is the case with the grabrail. Its simple long and big and easy to get hold off, which serves it’s purpose very well. I am surprised Suzuki did not do this for the headlamp. The taillamp is all clear and is LED. Your brightness is excellent and the scooter can be noticed for far.

Suzuki Access 125 Mileage

Suzuki claims 60 km/l and that is indeed a big figure for a powerful scooter. Even the tank is one of the largest having a capacity of 5.6 litres. That gives a good 300+ kms before you hit the petrol pump. This is an excellent distance to cover for a scooter. If Suzuki keeps improving like this, who knows, the Suzuki Access 125 can write the same success story as the Gixxer Twins.


Suzuki Access 125 Ride and Handling

Thanks to its light weight, you do not realise the proportions of the Suzuki Access 125. Its is as flickable as most good handling scooters around. The weight is very well distributed. I know there is no abs but for starters at least we do get disc brakes as God’s blessing. Sadly you still have to get off and open the seat to fill fuel. As I said earlier this is a near perfect bike. The braking of the Suzuki Access 125 is lovely and among the top 3 as far as scooters are concern. But to warn you, don’t be to hard like in on drum brakes you may end up skidding and falling.

The telescopic forks work well and provide a well balanced ride between good and bad roads. The seat is extremely comfortable and enough space for rider and pillion. Something small but if quite a lot of significance is that the scooter has skid plates at the base towards the sides. This help incase you get close to any stone or divider or footpath. These are small details that help make a brand stand out in a good way.

Summary  

Now, the ‘Jaadoo’ design may not be to everyone’s liking, but like the above mentioned minute details add a nice touch in promoting the brand. Suzuki has struggled hard in the last few years, but now is on a high note with the Gixxer siblings. Considering the package that the Suzuki Access 125 is, hope it gives Suzuki the access to another success story.
