Suzuki has had a fair share of unique two-wheelers in the scooter sector. From the upgraded Suzuki Access 125, Suzuki Burgman 125 and now to the sporty looking Suzuki Avenis 125, Suzuki's two-wheelers have it all. Continuing the amazing streak of 125 scooter segments for Suzuki, the Avenis 125 is the third in the lineup. Making exemplary marks in the two-wheeler sector, this flagship scooter has many things stocked up for its buyers.
The body of the scooter is so much more different than the gigantic body of Burgman and the simple looks of Access. From the frontal view we can see a three way color combination of the body and the shield. The scooters aesthetic is connected to the youthful generation, thus to give a sporty and fast feel to the body, color and graphics are well-coordinated into its overall design. The headlamp is a body mounted super bright LED headlamp for enhanced visibility and a compact design and the LED indicators are placed right next to the handlebars. The new design really complements the premium and sporty look of the scooter. Sticking to the premium feel the mirrors are given a faux carbon finish design and a sporty looking console visor is placed too.
The handles bars are placed in a sporty riding position to give a smoother riding experience. The brake stoppers make it easy for the rider as it eliminates the need to manually hold on to the brakes during traffic jams. The digital instrument console is much more improved than the other Suzuki scooters. This console shows major information such as digital clock, fuel gauge, oil change indicator, speedometer, tripmeter and more. Suzuki has introduced something new with this scooter. Suzuki Ride Connectivity is the company's own connectivity system that helps the rider to easily connect their smartphone and scooter with the help of bluetooth. Using the connectivity application, the digital console showcases missed call alert, speed exceeding alert, phone battery level display, turn-by-turn navigation, ETA updates and more. The scooter has ample legroom and dual luggage hooks for extra storage. The USB port can be found in the front box and to its right side a keyhole for ignition and underseat storage can be found, along with a small 1 liter storage compartment.
Scooter’s latter part can be seen with comfortable pillion seats placed at a higher position than the rider seat. The split grab handles look coordinated to the scooter's color and sporty stance. The fuel cap can be found at the external hinge so that refueling is easier and no compromises on the massive 21.8 liter’s underseat storage. Even the muffle cover has an edgy look and design to blend the scooter's sporty structure. The scooters LED tail lamps are also a compact design that gives heavy illumination and halogene indicator lights are given a motorcycle inspired sports design. Side stand engine cut off to the engine kill switch, Avenis 125 has it all and is well suited for today’s generation, in terms of both style and performance.
