Just a month back, we reported in detail about Suzuki unveiling its stylish 125 cc gearless scooter at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo. We have always maintained that the Access 125 is one of the more competent scooters out there and the only thing going against it is the bland styling. Now, the good news is that Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL)’s Swish 125 is now available at the Suzuki 2 wheelers showroom near you. In an unexpected move, the bike manufacturer by-passed the formal launch ceremony and went ahead with delivering Swish 125 scooter to its dealers. Swish 125 is surely youth centric and should target those who shy away from the dull styling of Access 125.
As expected, Swish 125cc puts to use the Access’ 124cc, 4stroke, air cooled, OHC engine that produces 8.5 bhp power and 9.8 Nm torque. As compared with Access, Swish has a larger under seat storage, more stylish instrument panel, an aluminium grab rail and a visually appealing end can cover. This scooter was to come in March 2012 but seems like the news of the new Honda Dio making it to the market resulted in SMIPL hurriedly launching the new scooter. The scooter is retails for Rs. 45,431* in Delhi and Rs. 47,470* in Ahmedabad.
