Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Suzuki has unveiled the BS6-compliant Suzuki Access 125. It’s the first BS6 offering from the brand. The scooter features an updated motor with fuel-injection and a couple of new features like Eco Assist, an external fuel filling cap and a new LED headlamp. Expect a price hike of around 10-15 per cent over the BS4 Suzuki Access 125 SP disc brake which costs Rs 62,892 (ex-showroom Delhi).
Powering the scooter is an updated single-cylinder engine that puts out 8.7PS at 6750rpm and 10Nm at 5500rpm. Though its power output remains unchanged, it’s now produced slightly lower down the rev range. Peak torque, on the other hand, takes a minor dip (down by 0.2Nm) and kicks in 500 revs later. To put things into perspective, the current BS4 model makes 8.7PS at 7000rpm and 10.2Nm at 5000rpm. Nonetheless, the brand has managed to pretty much match, if not better the earlier performance figures, and that’s saying something.
Here’s the official statement from the manufacturer.
