In addition to introducing the GSX-R150 during the Indonesia Motorcycle Show exhibition also released the GSX-S150. The two motors that were consecrated as ‘fightback’ Suzuki in the motorbike world did wear the same base, but were conditioned in two different variants. The GSX-R150 is formulated in a full fairing sport class and the GSX-S150 is prepared to fight in the naked bike competition.
Based on the percentage of online booking at the end of last year, apparently there are many Suzuki motorcycles for sale, and one of them is wheels Motor Cycles, the Suzuki GSX-S150 is much glimpsed by consumers. So what are the advantages of the Suzuki GSX-S150? Here we give the review.
Street style Sport
Although carrying the same family name, GSX, the 150 cc motorized sport variant has a different display theme. Yes, putting forward the style of street sport. This can be seen from the loss of full fairing and ‘racy’ themed handlebar components. Instead, it is subjected to large shroud water in the side area, the visor attached to the main light shell and wide handlebar plus the rear view mirror on each side.
Moving to the middle sector, the manufacturer implanted a protective cover under the engine that extends to the rear. Its function supports aerodynamic aspects and splashes of gravel or other material from the road surface. The seat is still wearing a double-layered and stern tapered model.
More compact dimensions
Side effects from the use of the ‘language’ design, apparently helped change the dimensions of the GSX-S150. As a result the visor that was integrated with the fairing was removed and had an impact on reducing the dimensions of the dimensions of 35 millimeters and the width of the body trimmed by 5 millimeters from the R150 version.
Don’t stop there. At the bottom, because the pinned cover engine makes the distance to the ground decreases 5 millimeters to 155 millimeters. Even so, the seat height is still ‘friendly’ for the driver because it survives at 785 millimeters and the body length remains 2 meters more 20 millimeters.
GSX-R150 Engine Block
Sharing a base between the GSX variants of 150 cc, too, applies to the mechanical devices. So there is no difference between the GSX-S150 engine and the full fairing version. So on paper, the specifications of this Suzuki naked motor carry a 1-cylinder configuration, DOHC, fuel injection, radiator cooled and are guided by a 6-speed manual transmission.
The resulting performance is in the form of a maximum power bounce of 19.17 PS and presents a 14 Nm torsion moment throw. Well, thanks to a different ‘robe’ design, then from the calculation of ‘weight to power ratio’, this motor is believed to be more fun. Because the GSX-S150 weight is 130 kilograms or lighter 1 kilogram than the R150 version. This means that the distribution of power per weight becomes greater so that the thrill sensation when accelerating is more pronounced.
Without Key-less Features
Looking at the naked bike segment 150 cc in the country, behind Suzuki to cram modern features to be able to compete. Therefore it is not surprising that this motorbike is equipped with several driving support facilities. Starting from the full digital instrument cluster screen, which includes multi information display (MID), time instructions, transmission position, to the rpm rotation warning lights to change gears to higher.
In addition, the LED headlights that shine sufficient light when driving in dark conditions and the Suzuki easy start system that makes it easy to turn on the engine. Although it looks complete, unfortunately, Suzuki’s ‘champion’ feature in its class, which is key-less on the main key house, is not available and is replaced by shutter key lock.
Unlike the GSX-R150 which is equipped with 5 body color combinations, the naked bike version of Suzuki actually has fewer colors. The choices provided consisted of Mettalic Triton Blue, the distinctive color of the Suzuki Ecstar racing team in the MotoGP world-class racing event, then Matt Black who appeared in the present, Stronger Red Titan Black that blends bright red and black accents and finally modern Ice Silver. If observed, then one color that is not provided by Suzuki on GSX-S150 is white or brilliant white.
Actually there is still one point that needs to be included, namely price. Just considering the absence of official information regarding the official price, we cannot compare it. It’s just like other motorcycle brands that also market fairing and naked editions on the basis of similar models, will pair nominally more economically for these naked bike. So don’t be surprised if the GSX-S150 will be marketed more affordable than the GSX-R150.
