The MotoGP Pit Scooter That We Want In India


The Taiwanese arm of Suzuki has launched its sporty 125cc scooter with the MotoGP livery

  • Suzuki’s 2020 MotoGP racer dons a blue and silver colour scheme.
  • These are the same colours as the 1962 50cc racer that won the first MotoGP title for the Japanese brand.
  • Suzuki showcased a MotoGP-liveried Burgman Street 125 at the Auto Expo and could soon launch it in the country.

We have been in awe of the blue and silver MotoGP livery on the 2020 Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP machine and have been dying to watch it in action. The stunning combination pays homage to the 1962 50cc title winning two-stroker ridden by Ernst Degner. Suzuki even gave its pit scooter, the Swish 125, the same treatment. Now, Suzuki Taiwan has taken one step further and is now offering it to the public as well.

FUN FACT: MotoGP Liveries Aren’t Only For Big Bikes
Launching MotoGP-liveried versions of road-going motorcycles and scooters is a sure shot way of bumping sales figures. Yamaha popularised this concept in India by launching a couple of MotoGP editions of the R15. The Japanese brand also offered it on the FZ series as well as the RayZR. Honda too rolled out an HRC livery for the old Unicorn 150 and the CBR250R. Suzuki jumped on this bandwagon a couple of years ago by offering the Gixxer SFs in the traditional blue and yellow Suzuki racing colours.

Auto Expo 2020 gave us a glimpse of a MotoGP liveried Burgman Street and Suzuki was contemplating the idea of launching it in the country. Now that the Swish 125 with the MotoGP colours is on sale in Taiwan, we can’t wait for Suzuki India to launch the Burgman Street in these new colours.

Some of you may recall that the Swish 125 was sold in India a while ago. It was one of the peppiest scooters around that time. But it never set the sales charts on fire as much as the Access 125 did and was ultimately discontinued. In its latest avatar, the Swish is powered by a 125cc engine that puts out 8.5PS and 10.2Nm, which is about the same as the Access 125 BS6. Should Suzuki try its luck once again with the Swish in India and get this lovely MotoGP colour along with it? Let us know in the comments below.
