Buy this scooter for its great performance and excellent ride quality that is very comfortable even for long drives. It might be a bit overpriced and if you are particular about the design than there are better looking scooters available.
The two wheeler segment is rapidly growing and Indian market is seeing a lot of companies launching two wheelers be it bikes or scooters. While bikes give that mean machine appearance, scooters are catching up fast with their cutesy style, easy, uncomplicated riding experience and good performance. Recently, we saw the launch of Honda Dio, Yamaha Ray, Hero Maestro and Suzuki Swish. Suzuki has been doing well in the scooter segment with Access 125 and with the launch of Swish, Suzuki has pinned its hopes on the appealing looking Swish.
Suzuki had forayed into the Indian two wheeler markets with its former partner TVS Motors only to part ways later. The Japanese manufacturer is known to offer top-notch products like the Suzuki Hayabusa, Suzuki Intruder, and Gixxer et al. Swish is undoubtedly one of a top-selling scooter in the Indian market. It is one of the best bikes in the market catering to the young generation. Suzuki has made a lot of changes in Swish; the front portion of the scooter boasts of sharp and edgy lines showcasing great brilliance and assists in aerodynamics.
The front of the scooty looks wonderfully designed and has an eye shaped front turn indicators. The rear view mirrors and the rear aluminum grab rail looks chic. The headlamp provides good visibility even at night and foggy conditions. And its taller and lighter compared to the highly acclaimed Suzuki Access.
The instrument panel consists of an analog speedometer, fuel gauge and indicators for high beam and indicators. The instrument panel is well laid and looks good. The palm grips are comfortable and the switches can be operated easily though the brake levels feel a bit flimsy. The centralized ignition key is located on the Swiss and you can open the under seat compartment from here. However, the presence of a glove box is missed and the bag hook is placed low and close to floorboard.
The seat is wide enough and comfortable for both the rider and the passenger. Just like Access, Swish also boasts of body panels made up of ABS. Coming to the engine, it is powered by a 124cc single cylinder, four-stroke engine churning out 8.58 bhp at 7000 rpm and torque of 1kg at 5500 rpm. The Swish has a push-button starter as well as a kick lever.
The overall design of the scooty is hip and trendy. It has that oomph factor which was missing on the Access. When it comes to the mileage, Swish offers 40-50 kmpl. In city you can expect a mileage of 40 kmpl and in highways, 50 kmpl. It stands true on the purported claims.
Suzuki Swish comes in one variant i.e. 125 and it comes in many exciting colors. It is priced aggressively and comes with an on-road price of 52,824 (Delhi)
Our Take – Compared to the other scooters in the entry level segment like Honda Dio it performs better and looks better as well as cheaper compared to its competitors. It does everything it is expected out of it brilliantly. If you are on a budget and looking for a stylish and a value for money scooter buy the Suzuki Swish and you will not be disappointed. It offers excellent performance, riding quality and comfort for riders.
