BS6-compliant Suzuki Access 125: All You Need To Know
Here’s everything you need to know about Suzuki’s first BS6-compliant scooter
Suzuki has finally released the pricing of its first BS6-scooter, which was unveiled in December 2019. Though its styling remains unchanged, it gets a couple of practical features along with fuel-injection for a nominal hike of Rs 6,500. Here’s everything you need to know about the BS6 Access 125:
The 2020 Access 125 now comes with fuel-injection to comply with BS6 emission norms. Thankfully, the scooter’s power figures haven't taken a hit and it manages to produce the same 8.7PS as the BS4 version. That said, it comes in at 6750rpm, compared to 7000rpm on the outgoing model. Peak torque, on the other hand, has witnessed a minor drop in the BS6 variant. In essence, the scooter now makes 10Nm at 5500rpm as against the BS4 Access 125, which generates 10.2Nm at 5000rpm.
On the bright side, we can expect the BS6 Access 125 to have a crispier throttle response thanks to the addition of fuel-injection.
Comes with new features:
Staying in line with the latest trends, Suzuki has equipped the BS6 Access 125 with an LED headlamp and an external fuel-filler cap. Interestingly, the lock for the filler cap is on the lid itself making it a tad inconvenient. Moreover, at 5 litres, the fuel-tank capacity is now 0.6 litres less than the BS4 model. Despite that, the underseat storage remains unchanged at 21.8 litres. It retains the apron-mounted hook, storage compartment, and hook below the seat.
The BS6 Access 125 features an Eco Assist light on the instrument console, which aids rider’s throttle response by lighting up when careful with the throttle.
The BS6 Access 125 is available in two variants: Standard and Special Edition. To break it down, the STD model is divided into drum brake with steel wheels, drum brake with alloys, and disc brake with alloys.
On the flipside, the Special Edition is offered with a front disc or a drum brake with alloy wheels as standard. Additionally, the Special Edition variant gets chrome rearview mirrors, a tan seat cover, brown interior panels, and exclusive Special Edition logos on the side panels. Besides this, Suzuki offers an Eco Assist Illumination feature across all variants except the base Standard model with drum brake and steel wheels.
Just like before, the BS6 Access 125 uses a telescopic fork and a monoshock. Its braking setup includes either a disc or drum setup up front and a drum at the rear. The combined braking system comes as standard. All the variants roll on 12-inch front and 10-inch rear wheel with tubeless tyres.
