About Suzuki Hayate EP
The Suzuki Hayate EP is a 110cc commuter motorcycle targeted at office-goers and middle-aged buyers. Complete with a host of cosmetic and technological upgrades, this new motorcycle is a successor to the Hayate.
In terms of looks and styling, the Suzuki Hayate EP is a pretty basic motorcycle. Cosmetically, there aren’t many changes apart from addition of new decals and paint schemes. The wheelbase has been extended to improve the ride comfort. It also gets a longer seat, new preload adjustable rear springs, tubeless tyres and a maintenance free battery. The instrument cluster gets a basic rider interface with an analogue speedometer and black and white dials.
The Hayate EP is underpinned by a revised version of the diamond frame, with a longer wheelbase. The 112cc single-cylinder engine has also been updated to improve efficiency. It is also marginally more powerful, producing 8.7bhp and 9.3Nm of torque.
The Hayate EP is available in five colour options – metallic oort grey, pearl mira red and glass sparkle black. It competes with the Honda Dream Neo and the Hero Passion XPro.
