The word ‘Samurai’ roughly translates to ‘warrior.’ Ancient Japanese had high respect for Samurais as they spent their entire life training to become warriors. So when Suzuki released the Suzuki Samurai 150, people understood that this bike would take a beating and still stand strong, as this is a 150cc commuter bike. Back in the day, Suzuki Samurai was a notoriously legendary motorcycle. So when the newer version came as the Suzuki Samurai 150, people were quite excited about the bike.
Suzuki is a Japanese motorcycle manufacturer. Suzuki is considered one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in the world. There may be only a handful of people in the world that don’t know about Suzuki motorcycles. Suzuki has also successfully made quite a lot of commuter bikes. A few of the most notable commuters of Suzuki are the Suzuki GSX 125, Suzuki Bandit 150, Suzuki Gixxer 155, and Suzuki Samurai 150.
The Suzuki Samurai 150 comes with a very informative analog instrument cluster. The instrument cluster has a rev counter, speedometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter, and other necessary indicators. We believe this instrument cluster will be very helpful for riders who are fairly new to motorcycling. However, a digital meter would’ve been better.
The Suzuki Samurai 150 comes in three primary colors. They are:
All the above colors come with similar decals. Although the bike is a commuter bike, the bike gets very sporty decals, making the motorcycle significantly attractive. The bike somewhat resembles the classic Samurai as this is an elegant and compact bike like the old one.
The Suzuki Samurai 150 comes with a halogen setup at the front and the rear. This means the headlight is a halogen, and so is the taillight. The headlight is expected to be good enough for the city commute; however, it might be different for the highway. The taillight is okay for being noticed. The indicators are LED but are not very minimalistic.
The Suzuki Samurai 150 also comes with a luggage rack and a butterfly crash guard as stock. The luggage rack is quite extensive, which is very handy for this bike, and the crash guard will protect the legs of the rider.

The bike comes with a weight of 133kg, which is relatively less for bikes of the 150cc segment. In addition, this bike comes with a 12.5liter fuel capacity, so the long rides out of town will not be a problem, and short detours out of the urban jungle will be made with no worries.
The length, width, and height of the Suzuki Samurai 150 are 2055mm, 750mm, and 1075mm. It also has a low saddle height of 765mm; however, the saddle is quite broad, which may cause problems for riders under 5’2″ in heavy traffic. The bike also has a reasonably average wheelbase of 1310mm, so balancing this bike is not expected to be much of a problem at the corners.

In addition, it comes with a drum brake at the rear wheel, which is quite common when it comes to commuter bikes. The front disc is expected to perform on average. The rear is expected to perform like every other drum brake.
The Suzuki Samurai 150 has regular telescopic forks and spring-loaded twin shocks at the front and rear. The front telescopic fork suspension is expected to have a decent response like most telescopic suspensions have. On the other hand, the rear is maybe quite comfortable for the pillions but is not made for support while cornering.
The Suzuki Samurai 150 also comes with alloy wheels and tubeless tires. The front tire is 2.75/16, which is expected to perform decently on the road. The rear tire is 90/90, which is thin to increase the fuel efficiency of the motorcycle.
