What To Expect From Suzuki In 2021?

From a new litre-class exotic to an electric, it’s going to be a promising year

Suzuki’s stand at the Auto Expo 2020 wasn’t as great as we had expected it to be, with only the BS6 lineup on display plus a couple of superbikes. Through the year, we witnessed the launch of these bikes, along with the introduction of Bluetooth-enabled consoles for the Burgman Street 125 and Access 125. However, for 2021, the Japanese giant could have something big in store for the Indian market.

Burgman Electric
Expected price: Rs. 1.20 lakh
Expected launch: Q1 2021
Following the launch of the Bajaj Chetak and TVS iQube Electric, Suzuki too has been working hard to launch its first electric scooter for India. The scooter is based on Burgman Street and has been spotted testing twice. The prototypes spotted testing looked production ready, hinting at an early 2021 launch. Expect the pricing to be around Rs 1.20 lakh (ex-showroom).

Intruder 250
Expected price: Rs. 1.80 lakh
Expected launch: Q2 2021
Suzuki had hinted its intention to launch the Intruder 250 last year. Though the Auto Expo debut didn’t happen, the patent image leaked showed that the launch is imminent. The bike is expected to carry the same engine seen on the Gixxer 250 and the Gixxer SF 250. It is likely to make its debut in mid-2021 and carry a tag of Rs. 1.80 lakh. Find out more details here.

Expected price: Rs. 12 lakh
Expected launch: Q3 2021
The Katana’s presence at the Auto Expo had everyone wondering if Suzuki’s neo-retro racer will be making it to our shores. Turns out, it will. The bike is powered by a 999cc, in-line four-cylinder motor belting out 152PS and 107Nm. We expect the bike to be launched in India in the third quarter of 2021. It could be priced around Rs 12 lakh if Suzuki chooses the CKD route.

Expected price: Rs. 6 lakh
Expected launch: Q3 2021
Suzuki’s V-Strom 650XT has been doing well in the country and the company is keen to use the popularity of the middleweight segment to their advantage. The SV650 is the brand’s popular motorcycle in the mid-weight segment. Given the popularity of middle-weight nakeds and the new found love for neo-retro machines, it is likely to make it in the second half of 2021. We expect Suzuki to price it aggressively at Rs 6 lakh.  Read more here.
