PLEASE NOTE – Suzuki will launch the Intruder 150, a motorcycle based on the GZ150, in India on November 7th. Click here for all the details
Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) had a good race in India, thanks to its Gixxer range of motorcycles. The Gixxer and the Gixxer SF have both been very successful in the country. However, the company has been absent from the fast growing cruising motorcycle segment until now. Not too long ago, Bajaj offered a 150cc engine variant of its Avenger cruiser bike. And now it even looks like SMIPL is preparing to launch a similar low-displacement cruising bike to compete with the Avenger. The upcoming Suzuki 150cc Cruiser motorcycle is known as the GZ150 in many markets. Here are all the details available on the Suzuki GZ150 cruiser motorcycle which may soon be launched in India.
The company has yet to disclose details regarding the launch date and price of its upcoming 150cc cruising bike. However, there is a good chance that this bike will be launched in the coming months and would have an ex-showroom price of around 80,000. The Avenger 150 has already received a largely favorable reception from buyers of the 150cc segment. It looks like even Suzuki Motor India Pvt Ltd is gearing up to grab a piece of the sales pie.
Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle Launch Date in India
There is a good chance that the new motorcycle will make its debut in India at Auto Expo 2018. Its market launch is expected to take place a few days after its presentation at the Delhi Motor Show 2018.

|GZ150 cm3||80,000 rupees|
We expect Suzuki’s next 150cc cruiser bike to cost around Rs 80,000. This will make the bike slightly more expensive than the Avenger 150. However, there is a good chance that it will be cheaper than the Gixxer. This will allow him to sell the bike alongside the Gixxer without one bike eating into another’s market share.

While some reports speculate that the next cruising bike will share its engine with the Gixxer series. However, there is a good chance that the upcoming model will be equipped with a new 149cc engine. This bike is powered by a fuel injected and air cooled 149cc single cylinder engine. It makes 15BHP of power and 11Nm of torque. All that power and torque is sent to the rear wheel via a 5-speed transmission. The bike has a telescopic fork at the front and 5-step adjustable dual springs at the rear. A 2-piston disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear provide braking for the Suzuki GZ150.

Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser motorcycle mileage
As the Suzuki GZ150 has a low displacement 149cc engine, it should be able to deliver an average mileage of 50-55 KMPL.
Dimensions of the Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser motorcycle
|Height (mm)||1 160|
|Fuel tank capacity (l)||12|
The Suzuki GZ150 is a cruising motorcycle. Therefore, its wheelbase is 1460 mm long. This should allow the bike to ride on the highway stably. However, its 12-liter fuel tank feels small for what is essentially a motorcycle that appeals to touring enthusiasts. However, due to its small displacement, it will still be fairly easy to move in city driving conditions.

Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle Design
So far, we haven’t even seen a single test mule of this bike. However, there is a good chance that the Indian spec GZ150 looks almost exactly like the international spec model. The upcoming 150cc model has a modern twist in its design while still retaining a cruising bike shape. The rear tire will be wide enough to give that nasty look, while there will be bits and pieces like LED tail lights to give the bike a premium feel. Typical of cruising motorcycles, this bike will offer raised handlebars, low saddle height and a relaxed riding posture.
The GZ150 is Suzuki’s first low-displacement cruising bike for India. Therefore, the success of this bike in the country will depend on a lot of things. We’ll keep you posted with more concrete information on the launch date and price of the Suzuki GZ150 Cruiser Motorcycle as soon as we have an official word from the company.
