The 2016 Suzuki Access 125 which was unveiled at the Auto Expo last month has been launched in at INR 53,887 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The heavily restyled automatic scooter now gets enhanced aesthetics to cement its position in the budding 125 cc segment.
The most striking change comes in the form of a new chrome highlighted squarish headlamp and a smooth front apron with prominent turn indicators. The fender, engine cover and taillights have also been reworked to offer a retro classic appeal. The new instrument console gets white background while the inner side of the front apron gets a cubby hole and luggage hook.
Noteworthy features include mobile charging point, aluminium grab rail, 3D badges on engine cover, alloy wheels (top-end variant), electric starter, tubeless tyres, maintenance free battery, etc.
Mechanically, the new Access 125 continues without any significant change. The premium automatic scooter is powered by a 124 cc air-cooled engine which is mated to a CVT to generate 8.7 PS at 7,000 rpm and 10.2 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm.
Suspension is taken care by telescopic front fork and single sided rear coil spring. Drum brakes are standard while the top-end variant sports a front disc brake.
The 2016 Suzuki Access 125 would be aiming to extend its leadership in the 125 cc segment. Competition comes from the Vespa SXL 125, VXL 125 and Honda Activa 125.
