Japanese automaker Suzuki has revealed the GSX 150 Bandit at the ongoing 2018 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) in Jakarta that started on August 2. Based on the GSX-S150 naked street fighter, the GSX 150 Bandit is an exclusive model for the Indonesian market.
Suzuki GSX 150 Bandit is positioned below the GSX-S150 in the Indonesian market and hence it lacks some of the GSX traits. It will be introduced as a sporty commuter motorcycle. The motorcycle comes with a trapezoidal-shaped LED headlamp and front turn indicators mounted in the top part of the headlamp is unusual. The extended tank extensions along with the dual-tone colour scheme and sporty graphics add muscle.
The centre-set foot pegs, a single seat instead of the split unit and flat handlebar exposes the commuter motorcycle character of the GSX 150 Bandit. Suzuki GSX 150 Bandit gets fully-digital instrument console that looks identical to the one on India-spec Suzuki Gixxer 150. Other notable additions are black coloured alloy wheels, double barrel muffler and an engine cover.
Suzuki will offer the Bandit 150 in four colours in Indonesia- Metallic Matte Titanium Silver, Brilliant White with Aura Yellow, Titanium Black, and Stronger Red with Titanium Black.
The GSX 150 Bandit will draw power from liquid-cooled motor borrowed from the GSX 150 twins. The 147.3cc, single-cylinder engine will develop 19.2hp of power and 14Nm of torque. That will make the GSX 150 Bandit most potent commuter bike in its target market.
Suzuki has employed a telescopic front fork and a monoshock unit at the back. While both wheels get disc brakes ABS isn't offered, even as an option. Suzuki GSX 150 Bandit measures 2,000mm in length, 745mm in width and 1,035mm in height. It has 1,300mm wheelbase and 150mm ground clearance. The motorcycle weighs 135 kg.
