2014 new Suzuki Let's preview
Scooter isn’t a class of two wheelers that’s sporty or a lot of fun or something anyone – owner or maker – would like to flaunt. But, these are practical and easy to ride. And these are an effective tool on our increasingly congested roads. But, the reason you hear about a new scooter every other month is because this is the only class of two wheelers that is registering both good growth and high sales.
But, having only one model at a single price point isn’t enough. To keep that consumer base growing every two wheeler maker needs a variety in it scooter line up. And, it doesn’t matter that underneath all those new nameplates, and the new designs, and of course, the new price and positioning, the scooter is in fact the same.
The Suzuki Let’s though is different. Not that Suzuki hasn’t used this formula – different name, different styling and different price and positioning for what is essentially the same scooter – that has worked wonders for Hero, Honda and even Yamaha, it has; remember the Access and the Swish? Exactly. But, the Let’s, Suzuki says is all new from the ground up. The underbone frame, the near 113cc engine, the telescopic front forks and even the rear monoshock are all new. So, is the positioning of the Let’s. Unlike the Access and the Swish which with their 125cc engines were targeted at the mature rider, the Let’s is more for the ladies and young college students. And therefore, the Let’s has been designed to be light and narrow, and easy to ride and fuel efficient. It has been designed, in short, to take on the Honda Activa i and the Yamaha Ray.
