Suzuki showcased the GSX-S750 in India at the 2018 Auto Expo in February. The Japanese company aims to strengthen its position in the middleweight performance bike segment with the launch of GSX-S750. Now, BikeAdvice reports that the Suzuki GSX-S750 will be launched in the country as early as this month or May 2018.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 will come to India via CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route, similar to the Hayabusa. The overall design of the naked motorcycle is similar to its elder sibling, the GSX-S1000. The bike looks sporty and aggressive with a sharp front end.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 draws power from a 749cc in-line, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine producing 110bhp and 81Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The middleweight naked streetfighter will be priced competitively as it is assembled in India.
On the design front, the Suzuki GSX-S750 borrows its design cues from the bigger GSX-S1000. The motorcycle features a sharp front end with an aggressively designed headlamp and muscular fuel tank with shrouds and edgy engine belly pan.
On the rear, the Suzuki GSX-S750 sports a sleek look with LED headlamp and tail-tidy design. The chunky rear tyre gives the motorcycle a mean look. The GSX-S750 is equipped with upside down forks up front and monoshock suspension at the rear.
Braking duties on the Suzuki GSX-S750 are handled by disc brakes at both the ends with dual-channel ABS as standard. The electronic aids on the GSX-S750 are limited to Suzuki Advanced Traction Control and do not get any other rider assistance features.
The Suzuki GSX-S750 will be launched in India in the coming days and we expect the motorcycle to carry a price tag of around Rs 7 lakh to Rs 7.5 lakh ex-showroom. The pricing would be a key factor for the success of the Suzuki GSX-S750 in India.

The launch of the Suzuki GSX-S750 will spice up the naked middleweight motorcycle segment in India. The Suzuki GSX-S750 will rival the likes of Honda CBR 650F, Kawasaki Z900, Ducati Monster, Triumph Street Triple and the Yamaha MT-09. Suzuki will try to improve its market strength in the middleweight segment with the introduction of the GSX-S750.
