The Japanese manufacturer Suzuki has officially launched the youngest bike Suzuki GSX-S125 . The bike is based on its popular sibling, the GSX-R125 and both models share many of the same characteristics. The naked street bike has received two new color options, with no changes to the mechanical up front. Recently launched in Japan, the latest GSX-S125 looks a little bolder, and the new colour options really bring out the sporty aesthetics of the pint-sized naked street. According to the latest details available, Suzuki Gixxer 125 is set to be launched in Nepal by end of 2021.
In terms of styling, the Suzuki GSX-S125 comes with features like a vertically stacked LED headlight, an LCD instrument cluster, split seats and colour-coded alloy wheels. The bike also comes with optimal torsional rigidity lightweight chassis featuring twin exhaust mufflers. Suzuki GSX-S125 measures 2020mm in length, 745mm in width and has a maximum height of 1040mm. The wheelbase is 1300mm, while the ground clearance is 155mm. The bike will weigh 133 kg and comes with an 11-litre fuel tank. The bike is expected to deliver a mileage of around 35-40 kmpl.
The new Suzuki GSX-S125 is powered by a 124cc, single-cylinder, four-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine which produces 14.8bhp at 10,000rpm and 11Nm at 8,000rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Braking duties are covered by 290 mm petal-design single disc with dual-piston calipers on the front and 187 mm petal-design disc with a single-piston on the rear with dual channel ABS lightweight as a standard. The GSX-S125 also gets cast aluminium wheels wrapped in Dunlop D102 tires. It also features Suzuki’s easy-start system, low RPM assist and keyless ignition.
This GSX-S125 is unlikely to be launched in Nepal for now as it will turn out to be too expensive for its segment. However, we hope Suzuki comes with a plan for the Nepalese market. Once launched in Nepal, Suzuki GSX-S125 rivals the Yamaha MT-125, KTM 125 Duke, Kawasaki Z125 and the Aprilia Tuono 125. However, the Suzuki GSX-S125 will satisfy many owners who would use it on the daily commute to the city and on long road trips.
