After teasing multiple times, the new Suzuki scooter has finally shown itself for the first time. It is called Suzuki Avenis. To be offered in sporty design, new-gen features and multiple colour options, it will take on TVS Ntorq and Yamaha RayZR.
This new Suzuki Avenis scooter is a new offering in the 125cc segment. It is the third 125cc scooter to be offered by Suzuki in the country after Access and Burgman Street. It will be a more premium offering than Access 125, but could sit below Burgman Street in the lineup.
The new 125cc scooter gets a much sportier design than Access. The sporty styling elements are said to be inspired by motorcycles. Upfront, the apron flaunts a centrally mounted trapezoidal LED headlight with an integrated DRL and features prominent crease lines.
The turn indicators are placed on the handlebar cowl similar to the ones seen in SR 125 and SR 160 while a small windscreen is positioned above the cowl. The side panels feature an overdose of cuts and creases which lend the scooter an edgy styling.
The sporty design is carried forward to the tail section with a split triangular LED tail-light. Suzuki is offering multiple attractive colour options in addition to dual-tone paint schemes which enhance the scooter’s aesthetics. Other noticeable elements are split grab rails and simple-looking rear-view mirrors.
In terms of features, it gets an all-digital instrument console which is derived from the connected variants of Access and Burgman Street. This display is enabled with Bluetooth connectivity which offers features like call/messages alert and turn-by-turn navigation.
Navigation and call features will be powered by Suzuki Ride Connect App, which is on offer with Android as well as Apple iOS. Other features on offer include LED headlights and taillights, a USB charger, an external fuel filler cap, integrated engine start and kill switch.
If it is indeed a 125cc machine, the new 2021 Suzuki Avenis Scooter will be powered by a familiar 124cc single-cylinder motor that propels Access as well as Burgman Street. This motor kicks out 8.5 bhp at 6,750rpm and 10Nm at 5,500rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Price of Suzuki Avenis scooter will be revealed soon. Stay tuned.
