All-new Suzuki Avenis 125cc Scooter Launched in India
Suzuki has expanded its 125cc scooter lineup by launching the all-new Avenis in the Indian market. Designed as a sporty scooter for younger generation buyers, the Suzuki Avenis joins the Access and Burgman Street in the Suzuki’s scooter lineup for India. Suzuki will open the bookings for the Avenis in the first week of December 2021, with the deliveries scheduled to start soon after.
Variants and Prices
The new Suzuki Avenis has been launched in two variants – Ride Connect and Race Edition. The range-starting Ride Connect variant is priced at Rs 86,700 and is available in four colour options of Metallic Matte Fibroin Grey with Metallic Lush Green, Pearl Blaze Orange with Glass Sparkle Black, Pearl Mirage White with Metallic Matte Fibroin Grey and Metallic Matte Black with Glass Sparkle Black. Compared to the Ride Connect variant, the Race Edition gets only the more special looking MotoGP-inspired livery in Metallic Triton Blue Shade and is priced at Rs 87,000, thus making it only Rs 300 more than the Race Connect variant.
With its sporty and boisterous appeal, the Suzuki Avenis looks completely different from the sober-looking Access and the maxi-scooter inspired look of Burgman Street. The scooter gets a front apron-mounted LED headlamp, with the handlebar cowl integrated with clear lens turn indicators and a small raked front visor. Like the front apron, the side body panels of the Suzuki Avenis too get sharp creases and a dual-tone treatment, with 3-D logos of the Avenis embossed on them. At the back, the Suzuki Avenis gets a split triangular LED tail lamp with motorcycle-like clear lens turn indicators beside it. Above the tail lamp cluster, the scooter gets external fuel filler and split pillion grab rails.
The premium pricing of the Suzuki Avenis is justified by the long list of features that are available as standard in it. The scooter gets an LED headlamp and tail lamp, black alloy wheels, external fuel filler cap, shutter mechanism for the multi-functional ignition keyhole, small storage spaces behind the front apron, mobile charging socket and a fully digital instrument console which also features a turn-by-turn navigation and call and SMS alerts.
The Suzuki Avenis gets the same single-cylinder, air-cooled, 124.3cc engine, which powers the Access and Burgman Street as well. The engine makes a maximum power output of 8.7 bhp @ 6,750 rpm and a maximum torque output of 10 Nm @ 5,500 rpm.
Apart from the engine, the Suzuki Avenis also shares its basic chassis with the other 125cc scooters from Suzuki. The scooter gets telescopic forks, a 12-inch alloy wheel and a disc brake at the front, while at the rear, it gets a single-sided coil spring, 10-inch wheel and drum brake.
The Suzuki Avenis will compete with the refreshed lineup of sporty 125cc scooters like TVS Ntorq, Hero Maestro Edge 125, Yamaha RayZR 125, Aprilia SR 125 and Honda Grazia.
