Suzuki has launched its best selling scooter, the Access 125, in two new variants - standard and special edition. The base model retails at Rs 59,891, while the special edition costs Rs 61,590 (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi). It features a retro-styled beige-coloured seat to go along with the new paint job. Aside from this, the scooter remains unchanged. It's powered by a 124cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance). The motor generates 8.7PS at 7000rpm and a peak torque of 10.2Nm at 5000rpm.
With the inclusion of the new paint scheme, customers can choose from eight colour options between the standard and special edition models - Candy Sonoma Red, Metallic Matte Fibroin Gray, Pearl Suzuki Deep Blue, Glass Sparkle Black, Pearl Mirage White and Metallic Sonic Silver. If that doesn't catch your fancy, Suzuki also has a Special Edition variant on offer which gets exclusive styling elements, including a contrasting seat cover, chrome mirrors and a brown floorboard. The Suzuki Access 125 competes against the Honda Activa 125, Honda Grazia, TVS NTorq 125, Hero Maestro Edge 125 and the Hero Destini 125

Access 125 is the best in it's scooter segment with respect of reliability, cost, performance, pickup and mileage. It's giving me 45 k.m./ltr of petrol and yet to go for first service. Light weight, easy to handle, bike like pickup.. all are excellent. Mine is BS 4 edition with disk brake. However, I had incorporated some changes/additions in my Suzuki Access 125 to get more utility from the vehicle. Though the following actions of mine may void the warranty on my vehicle, I'm not bothered about it.1. Changing of headlight bulb:-Got changed my stock hologen bulb - A.C. 35w with 42w LED Bulb (D.C.) - cost Rs.600/- with slight wiring. Now my vehicle headlight gives me almost 5 times more light then stock bulb.2. Installation of Headlight on/off switch:-There is a provision provided to fix a switch in the right hand side (near throttle) of the Suzuki Access 125. I got fixed Honda Activa headlight on-off switch (cost Rs. 60/-) with slight wiring. Now as soon as I start my vehicle, the front parking lights glow (at headlight off position) thus complying with BS 4 standards. And I can switch on & off my vehicle headlight at my wish.3. Replacing stock parking and indicator bulbs with LED Bulbs:-I had replaced these bulbs with LED Bulbs at a cost of Rs.180/- without any wiring work. A flasher (Rs.70/-) has been fixed along with a buzzer (Rs.30/-). However, back side break light remains A.C. stock bulb only.4. Replacing stock city-cum-highway light switch with Pass switch:-A TVS Jupiter Pass switch is replaced (cost Rs. 98/-) against stock city-cum-highway light switch which perfectly fitted. This will work for all 3 functions i.e. city light, highway light and pass light. Slight wiring is done.5. Fixing of Engine off/kill switch:-This needs careful electrical skill for wiring. An "Anupam" brand on-off switch (cost Rs.35/-) has been installed just above the headlight on-off switch. Now without touching my vehicle key, I can switch off the running vehicle with gentle press of my thumb.6. Replacing stock single horn with double horn:-Replaced with Minda double horn (high & low) at Rs.325/- with cut out (Rs.120/-) by slight wiring work.7. Got fixed mobile Charger-cum-holder at Rs.500/- to my left mirror.The total labour paid for electrical work is 1k.I just purchased and yet to know the mileage of the vehicle. But I'm totally satisfied with the top class performance of engine and above additions.
The suzuki access 125 is the most practical scooter in the entire scooter segment with the best mix of performance, comfort and practicality.Like every Indian individual I also bought an Activa , the 125 cc one which within the frst week started showing its true colour .. it started rattling the mileage was low and the performance was just a bit better than 110cc activa ... then I bought the access 125 and was really happy with it .. the throttle response was crisp and it takes of the line quicker than many 150cc premium commuters and has also got a decent top speed of about 95kmph and will do 100kmph on the speedometer. Im a keen rider and ride at higher speeds most of the time ane the scooter remains stable even at its top speed and feels stress free while achieving it ... with my kind of riding I manage to extract a mileage of 52 to 55 kmpl whereas if you ride like a normal person it will stretch to about 58 to 60kmpl which is a lot better than the Activa 125 which to date returns a mileage of just 38 to 45 kmpl and doesnt even go over 85kmph . The longer seat and bigger underseat storage is the icing on the cake . I have till date clocked 17000kms on my Access 125 and its still going smooth and strong .😃
I purchased in April-2016 and now almost 4 Years & 35,000 KM have been completed of my Suzuki Access 125. I have done all the services in Company Service Station only and Yearly Service Cost is around 2500/- with all spares and oil charges. In this 4 years only major maintenance cost I faced for New rear Tyre and Battery which is quite normal things in vehicles. The only problem is that mileage of my Access is drastically getting down day by day and by today mileage dropped to around 32 KMPL which is economically not good. If service station will not help to improve the mileage then I think for long run this will become useless and I have to purchase a new Vehicle. Also sound of engine is become more aggressive and smoothness is almost finished. Although quality of Body parts & Performance of engine remains excellent and I never faced any break down in this 4 years. If you planning to use this vehicle for 5 years then this is good option for you. For daily use this scooter is more comfortable then its competitors.
I can describe this after use of almost 2.5 years 20,000 KMs- Milage is ranging around 45 KMPL which is not bad for any gearless scooter.- Space uder seat and in front is very big and much useful you can carry a lots of stuff and even heavy things for your daily usage- Front wheel is bigger which gives you feeling of riding bike- Very much comfortable and seat is very broad.- I did all of my services in suzuki servicr station and believe me maintenance cost is amlost nothing after this 20,000 KMs run.- I drive more than 250 KMs in a day many time ans scooter run very smoothly at the top speed of 92 KMPH not heating at all and you can keep going as many KMs you want.- one request that you must convert tubeless tyre into tube tyre after 2-3 punchers otherwise yout tyre will become defective..Thanks for reading..
