It has been vitalised on the skin while keeping the mill unaltered
It’s time to say hello to the custom Suzuki GSX-S150 which has been showcased by the company at the 2017 Thai Motor Show. Along with various other high-end offerings, Suzuki put forth this entry-level yet embellishing machine in the motor show which might intimidate every other 150cc bike built for the road. Holding several extra elements over the stock bike, the custom GSX-S150, with its tempting grey and orange shade, may have had grabbed numerous eyeballs.
It’s not only the colour which has been exaggerated as the body panels are also beefed up to give it a more butch demeanour. The body is strapped in the carbon-fibre-like layer which adds up to its aura of looking like a big motorcycle. The headlamp cowl sports more curvy and dramatic design while the same goes for the huge and chiselled tank extensions. The puny bar end mirrors add compactness to the aesthetics and look nice. Contrary to the standard bike, the instrument cluster is a semi-digital unit which isn’t bad either.
A bunch of major mechanical elements have been kept as it is. This includes telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear, petal disc brake rotors at both the end and the power plant. The road-going Suzuki GSX-S150 runs on a 147.3cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which pumps out 19.17 PS of hefty power and 14 Nm of torque. The assembly is mated to the 6-speed gearbox.
