Suzuki Avenis 125
Whereas we had been lately getting an ‘superior screening’ of the nice little Suzuki V-Strom 250 SX, we additionally had an opportunity to have a look at a second small zook that we predict a couple of of us will even be fascinated with, the Avenis 125 scooter.
Fairly the trendy little unit, it provides to the present scooter line-up for Suzuki, sitting subsequent to the Tackle 110. Thrust is offered by a nicely confirmed 9 hp air-cooled single-cylinder engine. I say nicely confirmed as they’ve already constructed 5 million of these engines.. Reckon they’ll nearly have it sorted 🙂 Its gasoline injected, meets Euro 5 emissions and naturally is mated to a CVT transmission. No cog swapping wanted right here, simply twist and go.
And whereas that 9 horsepower may not sound like quite a bit to some, it’s on par or higher than just about anything in the marketplace within the 125 cc area for energy and / or acceleration. It’s not going to set any land velocity data, however my brief zip round Melbourne confirmed it had ample off the road grunt to carry its personal within the site visitors gentle grand prix of standard commuting.
It’s definitely roomy and comfy sufficient, has two entrance storage compartments, one with a USB cost level, and naturally the compulsory underneath seat storage space. On this case that underneath seat quantity is quoted at 21 litres and appeared lots large enough. It can match a half face helmet in there comfortably however I reckon as with all scooter, you’d need to check a full face one to make certain.
That seat peak is each cozy in addition to good and low, I used to be simply in a position to get each my toes on the bottom which makes it all of the extra person pleasant. Simply maneuvered round for the press pictures.
Wheels are trendy alloy models and include linked brakes which labored very properly and general felt definitely nimble sufficient to be a enjoyable factor round city. I didn’t get to stretch its legs a lot however I’m unsure you’d be eager to do a lot work on this above 80 km/hr. It’s positively an city prospect.
It comes with a 5.2 litre tank which once more doesn’t sound like a lot however it guarantees to be very frugal on the go juice with Suzuki throwing fairly a little bit of tech at it within the title (and by the title) of ‘Eco Efficiency’. So I’m guessing a ~150 km-ish vary wouldn’t be out of the query.
Up entrance you’ve obtained a pleasant stacked LED headlight setup and I fairly favored the LCD sprint which included present and common gasoline consumption. There was additionally a useful eco gentle that got here on if I used to be being wise and frugal on the juice.
Plenty of equipment out there already together with hand guards and accent bars so you may individualise your Avenis to fit your wants. All in all I believe it’d be fairly the choice for somebody who lives on the town. Commuting would value subsequent to nothing on it.
And the very best half? The worth. You’ll get your self on board one among these for $4900 on street. Lower than 5 grand out the door! Astonishing worth. They need to be arriving in numbers later this month (January) and Suzuki are providing a free bike cowl and hand guards for individuals who place an order forward of their arrival.
