Suzuki Slingshot

Suzuki India’s latest offering, the SlingShot priced at Rs. 53,000/- (on-road, Mumbai). The bike is manufactured on the Zeus platform.
Slingshot is a commuter bike powered with a 125cc mill. Before going into its specifications, Slingshot is equipped with a longer swing arm added with a adjustable rear suspension and a very light weight alloy, new front fender design, new head lamps, convenient gear position indicator and a small engine fairing to speak more about its style statement. Since this is a commuter, Suzuki had given a bigger and very comfortable seat to make the rider feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Other than this, the bike contains the entire necessary thing that is required for Indian conditions, like Saree-guard footrest, chain cover, crash guard etc. Slingshot is available in four colours – Metallic Mustard Yellow, Metallic Fox Orange, Candy Antares Red and Pearl Nebular Black.
