Suzuki Swish 125 : Road Test

The new Swish brings to the Suzuki platter all those things that the Access did not offer. Catering to a more youthful and stylish audience, is it good enough to compete with the Hondas?

Honda has completely ruled the scooter market in India with its ever popular Activa and Dio, and the segment has become synonymous with the brand. Suzuki has also had a short glimpse of success with its Access. With the launch of the Swish, Suzuki intends to get a bigger piece of the pie.

 

Style and looks:

The Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer touches new levels as far as the styling of the Swish is concerned. From the Access which looks more like a scooter for the mature audience, to the Swish, which hosts a much sportier and younger image, Suzuki has made sure that their new scooter’s design is fresh and youthful. The smooth flowing lines on the V-shaped front give it a gentle yet young stance which is definitely a good change from the rather bland looking Access.

The clear lens indicators, the arrow head shaped dual tone graphics at the front as well as on the side panels add to the beauty of Suzuki’s new offering. The tail section of the bike looks somewhat feminine but that doesn’t take any points away from the overall charm of the bike. As far as the build quality is concerned, the plastics feel upmarket and the Swish doesn’t give any reasons to complain. The only thing that it lacked to keep up with its stylish look and young feel is a digital speedometer.

Space and Comfort:

Riding posture is easy and relaxed. The height of the seat from the floorboard and the cushy seats make for a comfortable ride. One doesn’t have to reach out to the handle bars and it does not strain the arms even while riding through potholes. The seat is wide, soft and comfortable, not just for the rider but also for the pillion. The aluminium grab rail is large and easy for the pillion rider to hold on to. Under-seat storage space is optimum and at par with most competitors, but it is not big enough to hold a full sized helmet but a modular and half faced helmet can fit with ease. The seat opening mechanism is included in the ignition area is particularly convenient.
