Declining sales in recent times has forced Suzuki Motorcycles India to rethink its strategy for India. In a move to boost sales figures, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer today showcased two new products specifically developed for the Indian market.

 

First up is the “Let’s” automatic scooter. Pegged as a personal scooter and is positioned towards younger generation consumers, the “Let’s” is powered by a new 112cc single cylinder engine that outputs 8.7 bhp @ 7500 rpm, and 9 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. The engine incorporates ‘Suzuki Eco Performance’ technology to help it deliver a claimed mileage of 63kmpl. The Suzuki Let’s will be positioned below the Access and the Swish, and will compete with the Honda Activa-i, and the Yamaha Ray.

Powering the Gixxer is an all-new carburated 155cc ‘Suzuki Eco Performance’ engine.
