The Swish 125 is just a follow up of the most successful product of Suzuki Motorcycle India Ltd., the Access 125, with an altered body. Taking the advantages from its sibling, the Swish 125 is doing a good business for Suzuki. The scooter is well crafted to be a right machine for the current generation scootering. Is the Swish 125 better than the Access 125? Is it a great scooter with fuel efficiency, performance, reliability, and so and so? Let's checkout how good and bad the scooter is.
The Swish 125 looks pretty cool. More than men, it's the women class who are attracted by the stunning graphics and structure of the scooter. If the Access 125 has a standard design, the Swish 125 has a cute and a sporty interface. Being available in 5 attractive dual tone colours, the Swish goes even topper. The front part looks almost same as of the Access. The side also has the same story to tell. But coming to the rear side, we have a new look. That's the tail lamp. A newly designed rear turn indicators and park light are really impressive. The firm has also modified the exhaust which now looks better. Unfortunately, there is no body coloured rear view mirrors available with the Swish 125. The firm could have added it at least as optional.
Engine and Performance
The Swish 125 comes with the same engine that is used in the Access 125. So you need not to worry at all, because you have the best engine available in the Indian commuter scooter market. Powered by a 124cc, 4 Stroke, Single Cylinder, OHC heart, the scooter delivers a peak power of 8.58 hp @ 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 9.8 Nm @ 5000 rpm. The engine is coupled with CVT transmission that allows the rider to have stress-less rides especially in cities.
Of Course, the Swish 125 is one of the best performer in the class. The engine is smooth. There is no turbolag found with the engine. Sudden response is always given whenever the throttle is accelerated.
Need not to think about much features as it is only a budget performing-commuter-scooter. Still, there are few. It has enough under seat space to keep even fully-faced helmet and other stuffs. Along with it, reflector headlight, telescopic front suspension, long seat, and aluminium grab bar turn the things on.
Ergonomics & Riding Comfy
Mated with telescopic, Coil Spring, Oil Damped front suspension and Swing Arm Type, Coil Spring, Oil Damped rear suspension, and a couple of 90/100-10 tyres with better friction, the scooter offers one of the best rides in the class. This is cool indeed. On the other hand, the ergonomics is pretty comfortable too. The seating position, handlebar, switches, the instrument console, foot board and everything is well positioned for a smooth ride.
57 kmpl is what the firm assures under standard conditions. We all know that it is impossible to achieve such figures. According to user reviews, a figure around 45 is quiet possible.
Suzuki has priced the Swish 125 very competitively at Rs. 54,411 (on road, Delhi) in order to challenge its blood rivals such as Activa, Pleasure, Dio, Jupiter, Wego, and Maestro.
The Swish 125 is superb scooter. It has fuel efficiency, power, reliability, brand value, and resale value. It is economical and demands only a less running cost for service and all. However, the scooter lacks sever new gen features such as digital meter, exterior refueling, plug-in charger, and combined braking system. Still, the scooter is a value for money stuff as it has one of the most powerful hearts in the class.
