New Delhi, June 14, 2010
The roads will wonder who passed by. Get ready to renew your faith in the physics of design. The two International winners, four stroke, liquid cooled massive demons of power, steel and style are ready to burn the Indian roads with digital fuel injection and the most enviable wave of tractable power and responsive torque.
Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading two-wheeler manufacturers Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, has once again thrilled Indian bike aficionados with the launch of its highly awaited bikes – the GSX-R1000 and Bandit1250S.
Celebrated as the pioneers and leaders in the field of land crusader manufacturing, Suzuki has once again proved its mettle in the Indian bike market with this twin launch. The focus of the launch is to deliver cutting edge engineering and superlative performance to showcase that Suzuki has once again raised the bar in the motorcycle industry with superior technology and innovation.
These bikes which have been successfully reining supreme in the international market for long were desperately sought in India. Both GSX-R1000 and Bandit1250S are seen as ultimate machines and are known for their powerful engines and futuristic styling.
Launching the charismatic bikes, Mr. Katsumi Takata, Chairman, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. said, “This launch is in line with our aim to deliver outstanding technology and performance to the Indian market. We are pleased to offer exciting riding experience to pro-bikers.”
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Atul Gupta, Vice President (Sales and Marketing), Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Suzuki has been delivering superior technology which has been proven worldwide. We intend to showcase the same in India. With the launch of these two bikes, we extend our Big Bikes range in India and continue the momentum that had begun with the launch of Hayabusa and Intruder a year ago. Suzuki is all set to support the craziest and sportiest young enthusiasts who are looking for these iconic mean machines.”
GSX-R1000 – popularly known as Gixxer in India
It all started in 1985, when Suzuki developed the first ever GSX-R750. The goal was to build a large displacement bike that delivered the excitement of race-winning performance to riders worldwide. With this, the “race replica” category was born. For the first time we were able to offer a pure sportsbike, born on the circuit and bred to dominate the championships – in our showrooms. The GSX-R was built to be the ultimate in engineering, handling, cornering and braking technology. It started in the racing circuit where it demonstrates its full potential and brought the same high adrenaline and full throttle excitement to the street level. Uncompromising, undiluted performance – this is true for every GSX-R that has ever been made in the past 25 years of Supersports know-how. A perfect blend of track engineering and road ready design, it develops a feeling of raw, hi octane power that comes with every twist of the throttle. The latest GSX-R1000 nails it once again.
The all-new chassis with a shorter wheelbase allows you to maintain speed while taking on corners, while a longer swingarm delivers greater traction when powering out of them. A slipper clutch provides an even smoother downshift and greater stability when approaching trickier bends. Ride quality is improved thanks to big piston forks, the first 1000cc production bike to be fitted with them. Three separate performance settings provide instant control over the power delivery to suit the specific road types and conditions, while monoblock front brake calipers increase overall stopping power. In one word, ‘Legendary’!
The GSX – R1000 is available in two colours – White / Blue & Black /Silver and is priced at Rs. 12,75,000.00 (Ex-showroom, Delhi)
GSF1250S – better known as Bandit1250S
The “real” motorcycle lives on. All the iconic character and attitude of the original Bandit is fitted into this bike along with a 1255cc high-tech liquid cooled engine that produces even more torque from lower down, achieving massive performance figures, but from a bike that loves going for many miles.
A state of the art liquid cooled engine sits at the heart of this serious machine providing smooth power and acceleration. In fact, with torque figures that are comparable to the GSX-R1000, but at a third of the engine speed, it produces phenomenal “roll on” performance. An adjustable seat height maximizes rider comfort.
The GSF1250S has a fuel injected double overhead camshaft (DOHC) power-plant with 1255cc of torque at your service. Delivering a wide spread of power, starting low down in the rev range, the six gear ratios takes full advantage of this torque resulting in extra smooth acceleration and inspiring power delivery, perfect for long distance rides.
A sports tourer made for turning any spot on the map into a precious memory!
The BANDIT 1250S is available in two colours – Metallic Gleam Gray & Pearl Nebular Black and is priced at Rs. 8, 50,000.00 (Ex-showroom, Delhi)
The launch of these bikes has proven to be worth a wait in the Indian market, as the Suzuki bikes epitomize power, style and technology – now introduced to the Indian market to set a new level of excitement on the roads!
The bikes have been launched today in 11 cities – Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Ludhiana, Bhubaneshwar, Raipur and Cochin
