Suzuki Pavilion: Highlights
The Suzuki pavilion featured two of Suzuki’s superbikes: the V-STROM 800DE, a versatile adventure tourer with a powerful V-twin engine and advanced electronics, and the GSX-8R, a legendary sportbike with a proven track record and a refined aerodynamic design.
The GSX-8S is a naked street fighter that is powered by a 776cc, twin-cylinder engine that produces 83 bhp and 78 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a bi-directional quick shifter. The bike features a sharp and aggressive design, with LED headlights, taillight, and indicators. The bike also comes with a five-inch TFT instrument cluster, ride-by-wire, traction control, ABS, and three riding modes.
The V-Strom 800DE is an adventure tourer that shares the same engine as the GSX-8S, but with different tuning and gearing. The bike has a tall and rugged stance, with a beak-like front fairing, a windscreen, and a luggage rack. The bike also has a 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheel setup, with Dunlop Trailmax Mixtour tyres. The suspension system consists of fully adjustable Showa USD forks and a rear mono-shock.
Along with the global range, SMIPL is also displaying its domestic portfolio, which includes the popular Gixxer series, the Burgman Street scooter, and the Access 125 scooter. Additionally, the pavilion offers a glimpse into the future of mobility with Suzuki’s Flex Fuel Motorcycle – the Gixxer 250SF, which can run on fuel with up to 85% ethanol content.
Besides the two-wheeler exhibits, the pavilion also features two marine engines from Suzuki’s marine division, which are known for their reliability, durability, and fuel efficiency. The marine engines on display are the DF300AP, a 300 horsepower outboard engine with a dual propeller system, and the DF20A, a 20 horsepower outboard engine with a battery-less fuel injection system.
