Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 Launched From RM10,289.00


Suzuki has reintroduced itself back into Malaysia’s motorcycle market with a big bang by announcing its new brand custodian and unleashing a line-up of six new models, backed up by a network of more than 70 experienced sales and service dealerships nationwide.

Just like the management mentioned in the 4th quarter of 2021, Suzuki Malaysia has delivered the much-awaited 150cc models to the local market. This marks the foray of the Japanese brand’s comeback into the small motorcycle market for Malaysia.

These models are targeted at the younger consumer and riders looking for an everyday motorcycle that offers the latest technology, having the lightest weight and has the best all-around performance.

The Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150

Without a doubt the GSX-R has defined the sport bike performance category for over 30 years and with more than a million unit sold globally. This bike is an engineering feat that proves how Suzuki engineers have been devoting their lives to ensure the name GSX-R means something to the enthusiasts.

Every GSX-R shares the same principle – very light and the best performer in its class.

Using the same mantra, Suzuki manages to dial down the size but not the excitement to the new Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150.

Basically utilising the same engine and chassis, the Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 both have different objective and riding focus.

The full fairing GSX-R150 offers the best power-to-weight ratio and acceleration in its class.

The wind tunnel tested bodywork offers the smallest projected frontal area in the 150cc category, which simple means the GSX-R150 gives out better acceleration, great fuel economy and cruising stability by reducing both lift and drag.

The GSX-R150 also uses strong bodywork pieces and fairing that are lighter than its competitors. Matching the bodywork design would be a lower seat height that offers a more sporty riding position for enthusiasts.

The GSX-S150 also shares the same performance, but with a naked theme,  traditional handlebars and an even lower seat height for a more comfort biased performance.

Just like the GSX-R150, the GSX-S150 comes standard with a multi-function LCD instrument cluster and a vertically stacked LED headlight.

Designed, tested and proven for the ASEAN market, the Suzuki GSX-R 150 and GSX-S 150 will both be able to offer what the local consumers are missing from the other competitors.

Utilising the skills gathered from inventing the legendary GSX-R1000, Suzuki engineers have built a class-leading power-to-weight ratio 150cc machines via the use of its liquid-cooled, 4-valve, bucket-tappet Double Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) 150cc engine that achieves superb acceleration and maximum speed while improving the best speed feel.

Maximum power output is 14.1kW @ 10,500 rpm while maximum torque is at 14.0Nm @ 9,000 rpm. These performance figures are designed to be enjoyed from the low to the high rpms, escalating the riding performance both in city or country roads.

The 150cc engine uses some technology highlights that goes on to prove that Suzuki wants it to share whatever the GSX-R1000 is using.

1. Optimised Bore and Stroke ratio, coupled with the best compression rate to provide an all-rounder engine.

2. Advanced electronic fuel injection system that uses six sensors to provide more power and better fuel efficiency.

3. Using a 32mm inner diameter throttle body, the largest in the 150cc class which in turn gives the rider better efficiency at higher rpms and also power output.

4. High performance exhaust system that helps with the constant flow of power from low to high engine speeds, exciting exhaust note and equipped with a catalytic converter to meet the Euro3 emission standards.

5. Race proven cylinder coating, the Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) is used to ensure the aluminium cylinder weighs less than a conventional one. It also reduces friction and increases durability.

The Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 uses a 6-speed manual transmission and the reduction ratio is based in the GSX-R know-how to match the engine’s high-power output properties. This enables a seamless transfer of power to the rear wheel for breath-taking acceleration experience.

Large 290mm (front) and 187mm (rear) petal disc brakes are used in both models to offer strong braking performance while the 17-inch tubeless tyres are co-developed with Japanese IRC Tire, to ensure straight running stability and cornering performance.

Understanding how ASEAN riders use their motorcycle, Suzuki ensures the steering angle for the 150cc machines to be leapt at 35-degree, which makes it practical when riding through the traffic.

Modern electronics are also being utilised in the Suzuki GSX-R150. The new keyless system (offered in the high-grade variant) will be a hoot to use, as the rider does not need to fumble through his pocket to find the key.

The Suzuki easy start system also allows the engine to start by just one short jab on the button, without requiring the rider to keep on pressing the button until the engine coughs to life.

The full LCD instrument cluster offers a wide array of information, from engine speed indicator that flashes up at certain user specified rpms, gear position, oil change timing indicator, dual trip meters, two patterns of fuel consumption read outs and others.

GSX-R150 comes in a choice of two exciting colours and graphic packages. For high grade, there are Suzuki MotoGP colour (Metallic Triton Blue) and Red Titan Black with SUZUKI large logo.

The GSX-S150 also comes in a choice of two exciting colors and graphic packages, such as Aura Yellow / Pearl Brilliant White and Metallic Triton Blue.

Suzuki Japan produces both the GSX-R150 and the GSX-S150 at the SIM plant in Indonesia for the ASEAN region
