The GS150R is a 150cc offering from Suzuki Motorcycles India. It was introduced in November 2008 as Suzuki’s first model in the highly competitive 150cc segment in India. The motorcycle perfectly fits between the commuter class and the premium class in the 150cc segment.
The GS150R is powered by a 149cc, single-cylinder engine producing 13.8bhp of power and 13.4Nm of torque. What’s unique to this motorcycle is that the engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox for better cruising performance on the highway.
Standard features on the GS150R include GSX-R-derived engine rpm indicator lights, electric start, stylish five-spoke alloy wheels, LED tail lamp and integrated rear turn indicators similar to ones seen on bigger displacement GSX-R motorcycles.
The GSR150R gets a hydraulic single disc at the front while the rear braking is provided using a drum unit. The motorcycle is available in three colours – Pearl Mirage White, Candy Antares Red and Glass Sparkle Black. The GS150R competes against the Yamaha FZ-16 and the Honda CB Trigger in the highly competitive 150cc segment.
