    Just that its in two fugly hideous bikes... 125 each :P
    Nice one man!!
    Book a 250 and they deliver 2 sling-what-nots and we can ride both of them in filmy ishtyle AKA ajay devgan style!!
    When i saw the spy pics ,i nearly fell off the chair laughing.It was way off the charts!! even by suzuki standards!!! Only suzuki can come up with such ugly designs.However they do appeal in a modern art kinda way.got what i mean ? I wonder what the guys who approved the design were smoking .Musta been a darn strong weed!! They are getting strong competition from the dazzler though.My bets are on the zooks!.Seriously it looks like either someone at suzuki has a weird sense of aesthetics or a sick sense of humor.

    Default Suzuki to Launch Sling Shot in the Indian Market

    I have found this on the net

    "Suzuki Motorcycles is planning to introduce its new 125cc model Sling Shot in the Indian market this week. The model takes its designing cues from GS150R where the tank bears striking resemblance to GS150R while most of the other body parts resemble the Zeus. The instrument console is simple and features a gear indicator light that speaks of the 5-speed manual gearbox.

    The bike will be BS III compliant and be available in black, silver and orange. The bike is expected to be priced between Rs 55,000 to Rs 60,000. There are no further engine details and the final price of the model will also be available at the time of the launch.

    Suzuki Motorcycle India on Monday reported a 47.64 per cent growth in sales in July to 18,512 units compared to same month last year.The company had sold 12,539 units in July last year, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd said in a statement. "As promised, we have delivered quality products as well as customer satisfaction to our consumers. We will continue to keep up this growth momentum in coming months as well," Suzuki Motorcycle India Vice President (Sales and Marketing) Atul Gupta said in a statement."

    Hope it looks a little better to look at physically than in photos. Absolutely not a looker. What are those brains at Suzuki stuffed with??? sofa foam or coir from a 20 year old matress??? How come a wiered looking bike with a non-performing (that has failed to sell in several iterations) going to revive the fortunes for Suzuki!!!

    I hate the ZMR. But let us accept that the ride quality has improved a LOT, FE improved by about 10%. Performance section didn't find much improvement - will come to that in a minute...

    After all, this is India.
    Bingo.... spot on.

    FI is not going to increase peak torque of an engine by a big margin. FI helps deliver a much linear torque curve which translates to better torque across the revv range. This is something you cannot easily represent in a brochure when people look around for a single word answers. Frankly, what will you do with peak torque or peak BHP numbers? they are useless in our actual usage - but torque is.

    Thanks hydbiker bro for the info's; is it like the torque distribution will be more even in all gears so that when riding on hilly terrain's you can ride on higher gears comfortably or i' m going completely wrong
