Suzuki Access 125 BS6: Variants Explained
The long list of variants might be confusing, but we’re here to break it down for you
Suzuki finally launched its first BS6 product, the Access 125 BS6, yesterday. The scooter gets an updated fuel-injected motor, an LED headlight, and a long overdue external fuel filler. Prices have gone up across the range, but with a total of five variants on offer, things can get a little confusing. Here’s a quick rundown on each of the variants and how they’re all different:
Drum (Steel Wheels)
The most basic of all the variants misses out on alloy wheels and a front disc brake. This means that it is brought to a halt by drum brakes at both ends, and rolls on pressed steel wheels. It is priced at Rs 64,800.
Drum (Cast Alloy Wheels)
This version still misses out on a front disc and is stopped by drum brakes at both ends, but it does get smart 5-spoke cast alloy wheels. These result in a Rs 2,000 increase, taking the price to Rs 66,800.
Disc (Cast Alloy Wheels)
Both a front disc brake as well as cast alloy wheels are available on this variant, meaning a bump up in price to Rs 67,800.
Drum Special Edition (Cast Alloy Wheels)
The Drum Special Edition gets cast alloy wheels as standard, and can be differentiated by chrome rear view mirrors, a tan brown seat, special edition logos on the side panels, chocolate brown interior panels, and USB charging socket. It remains mechanically unchanged from all the above variants and is priced at Rs 68,500.
Disc Special Edition (Cast Alloy Wheels)
All the goodies from the Drum Special Edition are carried over, but this version trades in the drum brakes for a front disc unit. This, the flagship variant, retails for Rs 69,500.
