Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) has priced its new motorcycle Hayate EP at Rs. 57,169 in Delhi. Bookings for the two-wheeler, slated to be launched in April, have begun, dealers told International Business Times, India.
The company had unveiled the new commuter motorcycle in January. Once launched, Hayate EP will replace the current Hayate model. The new motorcycle is equipped with SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) technology, sleek piston, high-ignition spark plug and low friction cylinder and piston rings. Suzuki claims addition of these will help in improved combustion, high compression ratio, reduced friction and weight reduction.
The Hayate EP is powered by a 113cc single-cylinder air cooled engine that develops 8.7bhp at 7,500rpm and 9.3Nm of torque at 5,000rpm mated to four-speed transmission. The motorcycle comes with 17-inch wheels and drum brakes. The Hayate EP measures 2,025mm in length, 740mm in width and 1060mm in height with 1,305mm wheelbase. It weighs just 107 kg.
Suzuki claims the Hayate EP also has the longest wheel base in its segment. The motorcycle features a longer seat for better comfort, and is based on a new diamond frame. It comes with tubeless tyres and a five-step adjustable rear shock absorber. Suzuki will sell the motorcycle in three colours: Metallic Oort Grey, Pearl Mira Red and Glass Sparkle Black.
