    Default Suzuki India's CBU Launch Speculation Thread

    New thread opened for Suzuki's impending CBU launches. I have it on good authority about a launch soon, but if anyone has news links pertaining to the same, please PM me and I'll put it up here.

    Until then.. thread locked

    Pranay sent in this link:

    Suzuki plans 250 cc by 2008, 4 bikes by 2010 - The Financial Express

    It's old, but relevant, other than the "ZXR" bit

    Thanks Pranay.

    Pranay sent in another link, which talks about Suzuki's plans of launching the Hayabusa this month.

    The Hindu : Business : Specially designed 150cc bike from Suzuki

    PS: Topic is now open for discussion. Keep the discussion to the point, what you expect from Suzuki in terms of pricing etc.

    Although it does mention the 250cc part, but which 250cc bike ? is it a newly developed 250 for India specifically ?

    as far as i can see these are the suzuki 250cc bikes i know..

    GSX250F (fully faired , top whack around 185 kmph)
    GSF250 (aka the bandit 250, makes sense, although im ignorant where it's produced)
    GZ250 (although its a cruiser type so unlikely to come)
    GN250 (single cyl thumper , 22 hp , pricing cant be higher than 1.5 lakh )
    as i expect from a CBU , it shouldn't be a mere single cyl 250cc engine,

    what i expect is
    pricing should be 2 lakh plus WHEN (i expect the likes of the GSX250F)

    -it's more or equal to the R15 in refinement, a 250cc vibrating bike with choppy quality is not needed, it should be a good piece of engineering.
    - Spares shouldn't run out or be unavailable
    - service centres MUST be trained in order to service such bikes

    after all im not just paying for a metal machine, the price paid also means that i dont have a headache whenever it's going in for a service, or getting stuck when parts arent there. and quality issues shouldn't be there (paint job, finish and reliability)


    as far as the hayabusa goes, i found this link, dont have an idea of its credibility and the post is quite old and wrong on the launch date, although it mentions the pricing to be around 11 lakhs ?

    ^^ Now come on ppl,, A star is launched but by a different company and that too a product on four wheels, both companies have no relation atleast in India. and secondly are we supposed to dicuss cars in xBhp??

    @xeno: 2008's gone, no point dicsussing it, see the Suzuki ppl will start selling 150 from Jan, 09 and rest is mere news.
