Suzuki Inazuma price cut by about Rs. 1 lakh
Suzuki Inazuma was launched in January 2014 with a steep price tag for a 250cc motorcycle. Though inspired by Suzuki B-King naked bike, it houses a motor with not as impressive power and torque figures. Combined with this, and a high price point, Inazuma did not make for a sensible purchase at the time.
The Japanese motorcycle maker’s new quarter litre bike reaches our shores via CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route, and gets assembled at Suzuki’s Gurgaon facility. Launch price of Inazuma was Rs 3.25 lakhs (on-road Delhi) and Rs 3.61 lakhs (on-road Mumbai). To improve market reception and position the bike as competitive, Suzuki has significantly slashed its price, by about 30%, nearly Rs. 1 lakh.
Revised Inazuma on-road price in Delhi is Rs. 2.25 lakhs and in Mumbai, Rs. 2.61 lakhs. Suzuki’s sports cruiser now appears to be a fair price offer in its segment. Suzuki Inazuma hosts a 248cc parallel twin, liquid cooled engine that produces 26 bhp of max. power @ 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 24.2 Nm. Even though these performance figures may not seem compelling to buy Inazuma, the baby B-King does pack good low-end grunt and is well responsive in mid-range as well.
Inazuma’s dual cradle frame, telescopic front forks, and dual exhaust pipes coming out of parallel twin engine cylinders mirror a naked bike appeal. Chrome appliquÃ© on exhausts, front radiator (liquid engine cooling system), rear mono shock and three spoke alloy wheels further enahnace bike presence. Distinctively shaped headlamp assembly carries the persona of Suzuki B-King. Instrument cluster features a digital LCD speedometer, analog tachometer, digital gear position indicator, odometer, dual trip meter and fuel level gauge.
