Suzuki GS150R features, specifications and photographs

Suzuki Motorcycle had launched the all new GS150R in India on the 23rd of October (press release of the launch), it is latest entrant in the very competitive 150cc segment and brings to the table a fresh look and a new 150cc four stroke engine with six gears (the only motorcycle in India to support it after the Yamaha R15 and RD350).

Suzuki GS150R Features:

150cc Engine with a new design: The 150cc engine of GS150R has been designed with a focus on acceleration performance in the low-to-mid range speed, which is most important in city riding. This ensures that you always enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride with the new Suzuki GS150R.

Engine balancer technology: In other motorcycles, vibration generated from inside the engine by the vertical motion (inertial force) of the piston and rotating motion (centrifugal force) of the crankshaft, is transmitted through the handlebars, seat and footpegs to the rider. The engine balancer technology in Suzuki GS150R seeks to minimize such vibration in order to deliver a more comfortable riding experience. Moreover, the balancer system is quipped with balancer-driven gear fitted with a rubber damper for reducing the impact noise generated by its meshing with the balancer-driven- gear.

Digital Speedometer with dual modes: Presenting the world’s first eco-mode-equipped rpm indicator. The unique GSX-R-inspired engine rpm indicator glows to give an indication to the rider about the optimum up-shift timings. The latest unit features a new, selectable two-mode (Eco & Power) function to cater to a wide range of riding needs and conditions.

Sporty Style Headlight: The stunning powerful headlight of GS150R with built-in positioning light is inspired from Suzuki’s international Superbike GSX-R. it has been designed to give GS150R a very distinct look.

LED Tail Lamp & Integrated Rear Turn Signal: The super-sleek, streamlined aerodynamic shaped LED tail lamp and integrated rear turn signals based on the styling of GSX-R takes the style quotient to the next level.

  2. Hi well i guess suzuki is trying its level best to come up well it is good every dog has its day. A good work done by them still the test ride is due from my side. Well the bike looks good espica… with the graphic design and the stunning looks well the engine is still to be checked.

    The meter is also good nice pictures though. I like them thanks a ton for reveling them here.

    rest when the test ride is done then i will give my correct openion on this. Till then all the best.

  3. hi,
    its unik byke, becouse in all bykes between earlier lounched diffrentiate by its some feature like.. its front is so beautyful as well as back light with 6 gear.

    i think India me suzuki motorcycle ke acche din aane wale hai.\

    thankyou.

  4. looks nw suzuki ne kuchh sikh le li hai …
    aur its good to see a feature packed bike frm them ….
    shayad ab shaolin ke tarh ye bhi ..kuchh naye parameters dalegi ..
    kuchh der se hi sahi …
    but suzuki is back ..

    I took test ride of GS150R today and here is my view on this bike.

    It looks a macho with older design. Sit is very broad as compared to any other bike in same segment. And yes, you don’t have to lean when you ride it, but you need to move your legs backward for shifting gears and for applying brakes. Gear-box is super smooth. Engine is good but little noisy. It is not most powerful but still its good. It has got six gears, it city you may need to work for gears much.

    Speedo Console is having indicator for economy and power mode and it shows current gear also. In city, it should give 45-50 kmpl.

    Overall it does not seem to be very special but it should do well against Yamaha’s FZ-16. But GS150R may find it difficult to compete with existing bikes in 150CC segment like Pulsar, Unicorn which already have proved itself.

  6. ITS STUNNING

  7. i think this will outrun yamaha fz16 due to six speed gears…I will get this bike soon.

  8. Hi, just by looking into pictures one can not predict efficiency, economy and performance of a bike. I think there should be a clear tabular comparison between bikes like pulsar, unicorn, apache and gs150r then only the picture will be more clear. Ok.

  9. when is this bike going to launch ?

  10. what is its milage

  11. Again Suzuki is cheating India..This bike is nowhere compared to TVS Apache RTR… Alloy wheels and rear view mirrors are same old which are available in Zeus.. same old grab rail (no 2 piece unit), No Mono Shox.. No rear disc.. only 6 speed gearbox seems to be plus point.. And Speedo console is okay .. After RTR and Yamaha R15 and FZ16, we expect much more from Suzuki but this is disappointing…

  12. Rajiv Bhatia says:

    I dont think Suzuki has learnt lessons from past mistakes.. Yamaha is now comming up with some excellent products and somehow Honda too (See the CBF stunner).. otherwise all these Japanese companies were throwing outdated models to India.. They Should learn from Bajaj and TVS.. 149 cc and 13.8bhp engine from Suzuki ?? so sad..and that too with dated looks (except for headlamp unit) ..performance wise it might be good but still cant compete with RTR 160 or FZ16 .. Open your eyes Suzuki motors..

  13. Bravo suzuki, for digging your own grave .Its zeus with 6 speeed gears with 57mm pistons in over bored 125cc engine.13.8BHP is a real world record. It will follow unicorn soon in sales figures take my word for it, yes big banners regarding booookings open at all showrooms. its not even worth the second look (my honest impression)
    Bye

  14. it is so good,because of its styli headlamp….

  15. I agree with Getto, Bravo Suzuki… What an achivement !!! 149 cc/13.8 bhp bike? GS150R looks simple commuter bike (and it is) so what is use of 6th gear which is useless in city riding? We will right away throw your outdated model…please pack your bags and dump your Heat, Zeus and GS150R in Arabian sea..

  16. As everyone say…”The lights look good and 6 speed gearbox is appreciated”…and I agree BUT everything else is just the same old trash I see everywhere. At least some power would have been welcome. I own a Unicorn and was thinking of getting a good bike but then I dont see a better bike than mine and so I plan to stick with my old bike and wait for some good ones to com out.

  17. Utter rubbish. This does not deserve to be launched anywhere. Let alone India. The new Yamaha is much better and it will rule the Indian street. just wait and see. I own a Unicorn and I’m looking to sell it to get hold of an fz16.

  18. guys i have taken a test drive of GS150R it is really a wonderfull bike, though it seems to be less powerfull as compared to fz but it is definetly economical with respect to average and and the price of bike fz nearly goes in the house of 70,000+, where as GS150r is in the range of 65,000-67,0000 (on road price), also its will definetly give milage atleast 2-3kmpl more than FZ , and the sommothness is almost 20%-25% more than FZ and other bike , i think it is even smoother than unicorn, gear box is like butter, according to me only power and look is not important also the comfort and feeling while riding is important. the bike is surely giving more smoother ride than other bikes. according to me it will surely hit the market.i suggest friends take a test drive and than leave a comment., expecting the reply on this comment from a guy who had taken a test drive.

    hi guys,nicks here, i had my hands on dis new suzuki n actually gave the m/c a good workout,the features i noticed
    1.the digi console n outstanding,includes power,economy mode warnings,also has a clock in rt place so no looking @ ur rist incase ur in a hurrry
    2.looks r nothing xceptional but i bet u’ll never get bored of it n fall in love in long run
    3.the suspension were quite comfy bt a monosuspension wud hv been preffered
    4.also wen i streched it above 5000rpm inoticed dat it ws noisy,a sort of mechanical noise frm da valves(plss comment if u hd da same problem)
    5.gearshifts were smooth like the unicorns n i disagree wid above comment dat it is smoother than unicorn

    Guys m booking my GS 150 in mid feb,actually i wasnt happy bout the product in starting but later i found it to be a sensible buy

  20. whats is its mileage

  21. Hi to all n specially to those who criticized this bike. Firstly, i can bet that those who criticized this lovely model by Suzuki, didn’t take a test ride. I completely agree to Amar that looks n power r not the only thing u should look for.
    Comfort, smoothness n the quality of the product should be taken into account. I personally felt that it’s a complete bike, a mixture of Bajaj Pulsar, Honda Unicorn n Hero Honda CBZ extreme. Has got few great features like Engine balancer tech., 6 gears n having an option to select power or economy mode.. Engine is smooth, sound in between unicorns and pulsar. Gear is smoother than unicorns. Pick up is 2 gud. Abt other bikes- to me Yamaha has not proved anything in 4 stroke tech. , n fz16 looks an incomplete bike though the power is really gud. Pulsar becomes a piece of shit after an yr. TVS apache is an horrible bike as quality of TVS product has dropped drastically. Honda unicorn is a gud bike though it only lacks in initial pick up.
    Abt mono suspension, u should always have broader tyres (rear) which is normally present in sports or a racing bike (1000 cc +). Not adviced in a normal tyre as it might cause damage to your back bone over a period of time. Some1 wrote abt same old mirror n no rear disc brakes. You guys want the price to be economical n want all the features which is unfair n unrealistic. This bike has got everything all most all the features n name of suzuki which is known for its quality.. So go 4 it Guys….

  22. Yes I have mentioned abt disc brakes, mirrors, old alloys, monoshox etc but I didnt say that we want cheaper bike. They can always provide 2-3 variants (like there are ‘n’ no. of variants available for zeus so no need to teach suzuki) and top-end variant can have rear discs.
    Those who want cheaper bikes can settle for CT100, CD100 or Star City :-).

    Pulsar owners have to dump their SHIT bikes(according to Deb) if those have completed one year.

    Mono suspension will damage back bones?? UNICORN/FZ16 RIDERS, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR BIKES IMMEDIATELY..
    By the way, please find below the advantages of mono suspension (courtsey : Yahoo answers)

    1> Mono-shocks eliminate torque to the swingarm and provide more consistent handling and braking.
    2>They are also easier to adjust, since there’s only one shock to adjust, and there is no worry about matching two shocks.
    3>Also, the linkages used to connect the shock to the swing-arm are frequently deisgned to give a rising rate of damping for the rear
    4> The monoshock improves both the ride and handling if tuned well.
    5> The simple reason for it being better can be understood by the following explanation- “Whenever you encounter a bump on a M/cycle with two shocks, both the shocks compress, but there is never a situation when both of them compress for the equal length. This leads to downgraded dynamics when it comes to stability. But with a single shock absorber, this problem is solved.
    6> In a recent test conducted by Bike Magazine, Pulsar, Apache and Unicorn were pitted against each other on a test track. Although the unicorn was not the fastest, they said it is the most confidence inspiring and the most balanced of the lot.

    Still I dont understand the purpose of fitting decade old mirrors, alloys and grab rail on it. Offcourse these things are just to enhance looks but it matters a lot in these days (especially when the company like Suzuki is putting fresh(?) model in market)

  23. deva sandeep says:

    hi i have already booked one bike and its stunning but i suspect on milage no one is give proper responce on milage.please can u conform how much we expect the milage from this bike.

  24. Hey @deva_sandeep, mileage will be as good as Unicorn if not better. ZigWheels.com and BikeIndia.in got an average of 60 kmpl and that is exceptional and exemplary for a 150cc motor.
    And Mr. @Nikhil_Mahajan, where did you take test drive? Many people have reported that vibrations were at their minimum even at 8000+ rpm.
    As many have said here, looks and performance aren’t the only parameters people consider while buying a bike in our country. Please, for god’s sake, DO NOT comment about any vehicle without seeing it in flesh and test driving it.

  25. I want to know all the details regarding engine efficiency, mileage, smoothness, power output, comfort, price on road (Thane – Dombivli or Panvel )

  26. bike looks neat… specification is good… but the look wise could be much more better… front looks are like pulsar…and the rear looks like CBZ extreem… 6speed is not required fr indian roads…
    i got fz16… i feel 4speed would be idol to indian roads….
    over all side look looks like a TVS F2

  27. Suzuki is too late in 150 segment race let see what happens anyway the thing which stuck in mind can gs150r can compete other 150cc bikes with 6 gears

  28. good looking bike

  29. hi…i just took a test drive of this bike and its awesome…i m gonna buy it for sure….its gear box is so smooth and riding comfort is also better than other bikes in this segment along with stunning looks and other gr8 features…i think it will give atleast 55 kmpl in city conditions and much more on highways…so to all those apache RTR and yamaha fans….go find urself a place to hide coz suzuki GS 150R is gonna wipe it off all other bikes from the road..!!

  30. Even if it is good in terms of ride and handling, It will lose on performance and looks ground.. I wish they have done something for the looks and given some more power.. Then it would be a perfect bike.. But sorry Suzuki… There is no future.. GS150R will be a flop on the line of zeus and heat.. mark my words..

  31. Another flop model from Suzuki in India…

  32. what about suzuki samurai??
    lols..! i guess dat’s da only bike of suzukis which had bttr sale..(compard to new 1s)
    neways..! Suzuki motors..now bettr bring ur hayabusa here…!

  33. Rohan! Idiot! Busa has arrived quite sometime back. Dont comment if you have no idea about BIKES!!!

  34. Rear-end looks funny….I also agree that they have used Zeus mirrors and alloys which could have been better….Overall the bike is not exciting and lacks originality…. another fact is 6 speed gears are useless in commuter bike ….No wonder Suzuki is failing in India….

  35. Yeah!
    busa has arrived i knw..!
    bt not in ma city 🙁
    Aurangabad(MH)
    (i guess so) !!

  36. well actually i ve no idea abt suzuki !!
    among sports..yamaha n honda…dats all i knw!:)

    The No 1 BIKE.MODEL ADHIRINDHI(Telugu)

  40. un satisfied millage

  41. Have a look at Yamaha latest launch FZ-S

    http://www.autoblogs.in/2009/03/yamaha-india-launches-yamaha-street.html

    Can GS150R compete with this bike??

  42. Suzuki fierro was the bike i really liked . It has set standards in biking technology in terms of mileage,pickup, speed & power in 150cc category bikes. I am expecting many more than the earlier one in this bike.

  43. jack racer says:

    Hi all,

    since i changed lot many bikes(more than 20 from various make) in this 18 years experience.
    1.Dont comment any bike with out any test drive.
    2.Each and every bike will be refine , all its -ve points will turn into +ve in its 1.1 ,1.2….version. so guys dont worry .
    3. but frankly saying after all the version lauched. we people will look only for the old version and then only we come to know all the advantage of openeing averagely 1.0 and 1.1 will be the best of all. this comes into category models like(splendour(1994.. and upto 2002 model good,pulsar old and dtsi alloy with ordinary speedometer,discover 125,particularly ind-suzuki and tvs suzuki max 100,yamaha 100 and 135,old cbz, 4s champion and so on…..)
    4. above models are looking great now a days particularly to second hand buyers.
    coming to the conclusion each and every body will have some individual expectations. not even suzuki or yamaha or bajaj can full fill all our views

    so.. comment from my side is over eventhough gs150 r is late for competition. it will surely be a very very good model
    becoz of its brand, reliability,and strong enough engine and over all performance.so guys take the transition time and just try with new model gs 150 r. sure u will be ful fill. thanks to suzuki came back to india.
    apache:55%
    pulsar:58%
    yamaha gz :58.5
    unicorn :58.5
    gs 150r: 58 (++ or –) depends on its 1.1 version
    let us see..

    coments are posted my own experience.

    IF THE RIDING COMFORT IS LOST WITH ONE MODEL EVERYTHING WILL BE LOST
    THATS WHY I RATED LIKE THAT .

  45. jack racer says:

    KIND NOTE PEOPLE WHO SAYS WHAT IS THE NEED 6TH GEAR,ITS USELESS
    —————————————————-

    IF U THINK THAT THEN U CAN SELL ALL UR GEAR VEHICLES AND CHANGE TO SCOOTY, THE BEST HONDA ACTIVA AND SO ON …AND ALSO U CANNOT GET COMFORTABLE WITH GM CERTIFIED VEHICLES PARTICULARLY LIKE BUIK, SAABUSA,PONTIAC ETC..

    THEN U WILL COME TO KNOW THE USE OF 6TH GEAR

    1.NOISE WILL BE REDUCED
    2.VIBRATIONS WILL BE REDUCED
    3.ENGINE WILL NOT BE AFFECT EVEN AT THE HIGH SPEED
    4. AFTER THE TWO OR THREE YEAR ALSO THE CLUTH PLATE WILL BE GOOD
    AND MANY MORE

  46. BIG FLOP from SUZUKI…

    This bike sucks…

  47. hello ! friends I am raj
    I want to purchase GS150R

    So, I want to know +ve and +ve points on purchasing,riding and durability or even stability of this byk
    On road Price of the same

    Pls do mail me ur comments

    But only those who have purchased one or atleast had an test drive

  48. I too agree that 6th gear is useless, keeping Indian city traffic in mind..That too if the bike is simple commuter machine…These nonsense Suzuki engineers have not considered actual need..
    They are giving outdated 1999 designed bike in 2009 with Digital Speedo and 6 gears.. simple..
