Regardless of its hanging appears to be like and a value that doesn’t burn a gap within the pocket, the scooter leaves a lot to be desired

The Suzuki Entry has been one of many bestselling 125cc scooters in India, because of an ideal mix of efficiency, practicality and affordability. However, one factor stopping patrons from choosing it has been its conservative design. In case you are one such particular person, the brand new Suzuki Avenis could also be your reply.

It’s fairly just like the Entry, sharing the identical engine and chassis, however comes with a far sportier swimsuit.

Essentially the most hanging facet of the brand new scooter and the way it differs from the Entry, is its design with an edgy look filled with cuts and creases. Throw in a MotoGP graphics scheme and it might not look misplaced in a racing paddock. It’s exhausting, nonetheless, to disregard its similarity to the TVS NTorq in general design language, proportions and form.

The engine is similar 125cc motor that produces a wholesome 8.7hp and 10Nm on faucet.

Just a little additional efficiency can be welcome from this sportier trying scooter. It’s unsurprising that the Avenis feels fairly just like the Entry and the Burgman Avenue by way of efficiency – it’s fast, and feels slightly zippy within the metropolis – backing up its appears to be like to some extent. It may possibly additionally sit fairly at 70-80kph on the freeway, easily cruising alongside because of its nearly EV-rivalling ranges of engine refinement.

It’s not as fast because the TVS NTorq Race XP, and it’s a little disappointing that it’s not faster than different scooters in Suzuki’s steady. It’s a whole lot extra gasoline environment friendly than the NTorq although, and delivers the superb effectivity ranges that this engine is understood for.

The Avenis rides fairly effectively and gives an absorptive suspension setup that works effectively and retains you largely snug on Indian roads.

The Avenis, nonetheless, leaves lots to be desired within the dealing with division. Maybe Suzuki would have performed effectively to deviate from the Entry’ blueprint right here, by providing a sportier using expertise to go along with the racier appears to be like and intent. The Avenis nonetheless feels slightly numb and obscure when leaned over, and fatter rubber with a 12-inch rear wheel would have gone a good distance in inspiring some confidence. As issues stand proper now, there’s a slightly massive void between the rear tyre and the bodywork, and by way of ergonomics, journey and dealing with, the Avenis feels almost similar to the Entry.

What meaning is you get a equally spacious using place with a roomy floorboard and tall handlebars that won’t foul with the knees of taller riders. The seat (one of many components that’s totally different from the Entry) is sort of vast too, and general, you might be in a fairly snug place. It is just after just a few hours of using that your again begins to really feel some ache, which is alright — this isn’t meant to be a cross-country tourer.

There’s a good quantity of cupboard space underneath the seat, and a few gloveboxes behind the apron, too, one in every of which contains a USB charger. Just like the Entry, whereas the gasoline filler is exterior, it must be opened utilizing a keyslot close to the seize rail, that means that you’ll have to get off the scooter to refill.

Different options embody a Bluetooth-equipped absolutely digital instrument console, an LED headlight and tail-lamp, and a side-stand cut-off, however the lack of a boot mild is somewhat disappointing.

By way of value, the usual color possibility comes at ₹ 86,700 making it just a few thousand rupees dearer than the Entry, however nonetheless extra reasonably priced than the Burgman and prices nearly the identical because the NTorq Race XP, which is an efficient deal faster.

Summing up, the brand new Suzuki Avenis is an efficient scooter, but it surely doesn’t provide something new in addition to the design. If the Entry’ appears to be like are too understated for you and the Burgman’s design is just too unconventional, then you definitely now have the choice of a scooter that’s priced between these two, and gives a sporty, however not outlandish design.
