Suzuki GSX-R150. A name to be reckoned with. This bike is considered as one of the fastest bikes in Bangladesh. The bike came to Bangladesh directly as one of the top contenders in the sports bike segment. This is one of the fastest bikes available in Bangladesh. Suzuki has clearly outdone themselves with this bike.
Suzuki is one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in the world. The Suzuki Hayabusa, a motorcycle of the GSX R Series, is a living legend. Suzuki markets in Bangladesh through Rancon Motorbikes Ltd. The Suzuki GSX-R150 made quite some noise when it came out. When the new dual-channel ABS version came, people went nuts about it. Here we will see why the Suzuki GSX-R150 is such a remarkable bike.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 is one of the two bikes in Bangladesh that has keyless ignition. Keyless ignition brings extra security to your bike. The overall instrument cluster of the bike looks a lot like the Suzuki GIxxer’s one. The instrument cluster includes a speedometer, RPM counter, gear position indicator, odometer, trip meter, and many other functionalities that will assist a rider in their everyday life.
The bike also comes with ABS (Antilock braking system) which is a first for this bike. The new Suzuki GSX-R150 comes with dual-channel ABS which is a great addition to a sports bike. ABS ensures that the bike’s tires do not lock in emergency braking situations. These make the bike’s controlling and braking much better than the previous version.
The bike comes with a track-oriented seating position. However, the seating position also allows the rider to seat a bit more upright than a fully track-oriented bike. This allows for a more comfortable commute in the city as well.
The bike comes in two separate colors. They are:
If you see a yellow sports bike on the road, you can bet it is a Suzuki GSX-R150. The Yellow Suzuki GSX-R150 is a very iconic bike to the Bangladeshi youths.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 is a fairly short bike, with a seat height of 785mm. The bike is mostly suited for riders more than 5’4”. The bike also has a short rear section, with a small rear seat. The tank of the bike is 11 liters. The tank isn’t going to be the best for long rides as it will not have the best range.
The bike has a length, width, height, and weight of around 2000mm, 700mm, 1070mm, and 134kg. The bike is very light compared to other sports bikes, which is not very good for a sports bike as it requires weight to keep it stable at high speeds. The ground clearance of the bike is 155mm, which might make it slightly prone to getting stuck on speedbumps of Bangladesh when riding with a heavy pillion. The wheelbase of the bike is around 1300mm, which makes it quite nimble, but might make it slightly unstable at corners.
Engine and Transmission:
The Suzuki GSX-R150 comes with a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, DOHC, and 150cc engine. The engine is liquid-cooled and fuel-injected, which are huge plus points for the bike. The engine pumps out a staggering 18.9BHP of power at 10500rpm and 14Nm torque at 9000rpm. While the power is extremely high, the torque figure does get a blow due to the engine size. The bike is expected to have a mileage of around 32kmpl (Company claim) on average.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 has a basic wet multi-plate clutch system. However, the bike does not get a slipper clutch like the Yamaha R15 V3. The Suzuki GSX-R150 has a 6-speed gearbox, and the bike has an approximate top speed of about 140kmph.
Brakes, Suspensions, and Wheel:
The Suzuki GSX-R150 has dual-channel ABS, which means the front and the rear both get ABS. The bike also has a four-piston radial fixed caliper, 290mm disc brake set up at the front. This means emergency braking will be faster and will be more efficient. The brakes make the bike safer and more reliable. The rear 189mm disc with ABS is a huge plus point for this bike as well, as this ensures that the bike will not skid at emergency braking situations.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 has basic telescopic forks at the front. These forks are very good for riding in the city. However, you might not get the fun to learn with the bike in the corners. The rear mono shock is also great for cornering.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 gets alloy wheels. The front and rear wheels have 90/80 and 130/70 tires respectively. The front tire is okay, but the rear tire could have been a bit thicker, as it would have been much easier to corner with a thicker tire at the rear.
Pros and Cons:
The Suzuki GSX-R150 has a few pros and cons:
- Fuel efficient.
- Dual-channel ABS.
- Very Expensive.
- Rear tire.
- Fuel Capacity.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 was made for youngsters who have been riding for quite some time and want to get an upgrade to a higher capacity sports bike. It is also good for a person who wants to get a sports bike with which they can tour.
Weirdly, the Suzuki GSX-R150 has only three competitors, but the competitors are strong enough to question the buyer’s decisions.
- Yamaha R15 V3.
- Honda CBR 150R.
- Lifan KPR 165R.
The Suzuki GSX-R150 is one of the fastest bikes in Bangladesh. The updated version of the bike brings dual-channel ABS, which brings the braking and handling of the bike to a whole different level.
