Motorcycle market in India is experiencing a boom right now with almost every manufacturer concentrating on commuter segment of the industry. Suzuki following the market trend launched a new 110cc motorcycle in India, the Hayate. The Hayate or the Fresh Breeze is powered by 112cc, 4-stroke, air-cooled motor which mills our 8.4 PS of maximum power and 8.8 Nm of torque mated with a 4-speed gearbox.
The Hayate will have fuel capacity of 8 liter with best-in-class mileage. The bike gets drum brakes in both front and rear. Suzuki will sell the bike in 5-colors; Pearl Mirage White, Metallic Lush Green, Pearl Mica Red, GL Sparkle Black and Metallic Flint Grey. Suzuki said they are targeting monthly sales of 10,000 units.
Anand Thakur, head of national sales (SMIL) said, Maharashtra is an important market for Suzuki motorcycles. We see the Hayate securing a significant and distinct space for itself in the Indian motorcycle market by serving the needs of the first time motorcycle owner and people with regular commuting needs. The Hayate is a great option for customers looking for both uncompromising technology and value for money. We believe that Suzuki and Salman together will make an emotional connect with all sections of customers that Suzuki's range of two-wheelers reaches out to.
The Hayate is available for Rs. 40,162 for kick start variant and Rs. 42,162 with electric start, ex-showroom Pune.
