Suzuki Access 125 Latest Update
Suzuki has launched a new colour scheme for the Access 125. Check it out here.
The Suzuki Access 125 is India’s best selling 125cc scooter, and is loaded with practical features including turn-by-turn navigation, external fuel filler cap, large underseat storage, LED headlight among others.
Suzuki Access 125 Price:
Suzuki offers the Access 125 in seven variants. The price of the Suzuki Access starts from Rs 77,600 for the drum brakes/steel wheels option. The one with drum brakes and alloy wheels costs Rs 79,300 while the Access 125 disc brake and alloy wheels version is priced at Rs 81,300. The latter two variants get ‘Special Edition’ trims comprising fancy colours, and costing Rs 83,000. The top-of-the-line Ride Connect editions cost Rs 85,200 for the drum brake variant and Rs 87,200 for disc brakes (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).
Suzuki Access 125 Features:
Suzuki had given the Access 125 a couple of new features with the BS6 update. Firstly, the LED headlight gets a chrome bezel. The semi-digital information panel gets an eco-assist indicator, which is basically a bar that turns from blue to green when you ride the scooter economically. You finally get an external fuel filler cap on the Access 125, which should make filling fuel a convenient affair. Suzuki also introduced new variants with the Suzuki Ride Connect feature. This Bluetooth-enabled smartphone-compatible instrument cluster allows you to access features such as turn-by-turn navigation, call/SMS/ WhatsApp alerts, overspeeding alerts, trip sharing and last parked location. All these features enhance the Access 125’s practicality considerably.
Suzuki Access 125 Engine:
The 124cc single-cylinder engine of the Suzuki Access 125 is fuel-injected, making the motor even smoother than before. With the BS6 updates, engine performance is now rated at 8.7PS and 10Nm -- same power but torque is down by 0.2Nm.
Suzuki Access 125 Suspension & Brakes:
The mechanical foundations of the BS6 Suzuki Access 125 are identical to its predecessor. A front telescopic fork and single shock suspend the underbone frame. Depending on the variant, you either get a disc or a drum brake on the front wheel but a rear drum unit is common on all trims, and so is CBS.
Suzuki Access 125 Rivals:
The Suzuki Access 125 has been our pick of the lot in the 125cc family scooter segment for a long time now. Competition for the Suzuki Access 125 comes from the Hero Maestro Edge 125, Honda Activa 125, TVS Jupiter 125 and Yamaha Fascino 125.

Access 125 Expert Review
The Suzuki Access 125 has been a dominant contender in the 125cc space ever since it entered the India market way back in 2007. Being the only 125cc scooter in the market for quite some time, its reign remained unquestioned for almost a decade. Then came along the updated Access 125 which went on to become an absolute dominant force in the 125cc scooter space, outdoing many 110cc scooters in the process.
What worked in favour of the Access is the fact that it was the first 125 automatic scooter in the Indian market, plugging the gap between 100cc offerings (now 110cc) and 150cc geared scooters. The significant performance improvement over smaller scooters without much of a drop in efficiency or practicality had customers hooked, and how! So much so that the Access 125 didn't have a worthy adversary for a long, long time.
But now, a decade later, the market has transitioned from simple utilitarian scooters to more modern, powerful and tech-laden ones thanks to the introduction of new safety and emission standards. It all boils down to who offers more for the money’s worth. Yes, the Access 125 still sits at the top of the food chain, but can it hold onto the position with its most recent update?
Design and Features
We’ve always had mixed feelings about the scooter’s design. I personally feel Suzuki could have given the Access a complete makeover for 2020. Something on the lines of say.. the Suzuki Saluto 125cc that was recently unveiled in Taiwan would surely do the trick! But for now, we have to make do with what we have, which isn’t all that bad. The scooter looks identical to the previous-gen model, with a curvy design language, a handlebar-mounted headlamp, apron-mounted turn indicators, contrasting seat, chrome trims to accentuate its premiumness and an exhaust with a slightly odd-looking, tapered chrome heat shield.
In the same vein, it maintains its build quality, which is among the best in the segment, with consistent panel gaps and solid feeling plastics.

Coming to the meat of the matter. Like most BS6 two-wheelers, you’d probably expect the BS6 Access 125 to lose out on performance, but that isn’t the case here. The folks at Suzuki have managed to eke out just as much power as before from the 124cc engine. It produces the same 8.7PS but loses out on a bit of torque -- 0.2Nm to be precise. Thankfully this drop is small enough not to make any noticeable difference in real-world conditions.
Interestingly, even though the scooter gained 2kg during the transition from BS4 to BS6, it still manages to dart off the line rather eagerly and has enough grunt quick overtakes. In fact, the BS6 Access is one of the quickest 125cc scooters we’ve tested so far, quicker than even the Hero Maestro Edge 125.
Furthermore, the addition of fuel injection means the engine feels smoother than before and responds almost instantaneously to the smallest of throttle inputs. The engineers have also managed to overcome any lag from the CVT gearbox. What you get in return is a crip and precise throttle and a frugal motor that delivers better fuel efficiency than the previous iteration. Thanks to the new setup, the motor can cruise comfortably between 70-80kmph on highways.
Braking and Handling
Suzuki Access 125 BS6
Suzuki Access 125 BS4
The updated Suzuki Access 125's suspension setup is one of the best in the market. Be it potholes or huge speed breakers, the setup is configured to soak them up with ease, consequently offering excellent ride quality. The Access SE we tested came equipped with a front disc brake and a rear drum brake which offer good progression and feedback. And though it works better than the previous-gen model while shedding speed, it still lacks bite compared to other front disc brake-equipped scooters.
Despite the weight gain, the Access 125 still feels nimble on its feet and manages to weave through traffic with utmost ease. Factor in the 12-inch front wheel and you have a scooter that’s as steady as a rock, be it in corners or simply gunning it in a straight line.
Safety and Features
So what’s new in the tech and features department? To keep in line with the BS6 emission norms, the Access gets a tweaked 125cc motor with fuel injection. Besides this, the scooter features a full LED headlight compared to the conventional halogen unit on the BS4 model. While it has good throw and spread which is fine within city limits, it lacks intensity and which becomes quite evident on pitch dark roads.
Next up is the new Eco assist illumination which, unlike conventional eco indicators, forms an arch around the speedometer. It stays green when you’re easy on the throttle but gradually turns blue when you begin to accelerate harder. However, we’d like to point out that the Eco assist is merely an indicator and doesn’t really guide the rider with throttle inputs. Another stumbling block is the analogue-digital instrument console with conventional readouts like a fuel gauge, odometer and two trip meters. Sure, it’s legible and easy to read even in the dark, but a full-digital console would surely give the scooter a couple of extra brownie points.
Other creature comforts come in the form of a USB charging socket placed on the front apron right beside a nifty cubby hole which could be used to store knick-knacks like your phone or wallet. However, we’d advise you to be careful in such situations as it's quite easy for your phone or wallet to fall out of the open storage when you go through crater-sized potholes or over large speed breakers.
For ease of use, Suzuki has equipped the BS6 Access with an external fuel filler cap placed at the back. But unlike other scooters which have the facility to remotely open the lid, the one on the Access requires you to get off the scooter and physically open the cover with a key. An unlock switch right next to the ignition fob, like the Activa 125 BS6, would have been ideal here.
