Suzuki Motorcycle India has launched the Bluetooth-equipped variants of Access 125 and Burgman Street scooters in India. These smart variants will be sold alongside the existing trims. The prices of the new variants with the Suzuki Ride Connect feature are as follows:-
Suzuki Ride Connect variants (Bluetooth Equipped)
Regular variants (Without Bluetooth)
|Access 125 Drum Alloy Special Edition
|Access 125 Disc Alloy Special Edition
*all price, ex-showroom Delhi.
The new Suzuki Ride Connect instrument cluster is a negative LCD fully-digital unit. It permits you to pair your smartphone to the instrument cluster via Bluetooth using the dedicated Suzuki Ride Connect mobile application and allows the use of navigation on the go. It shows turn-by-turn navigation feeds on the display along with Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), calls/SMS/WhatsApp alerts, phone battery level indication, and overspeeding warning (user-defined). It also gets features like trip sharing and last parked location to find your parked scooter and share your ride with family and friends.
Currently, the Suzuki Ride Connect app is available only on Android Playstore. Its iOS version will be released very soon.
Burgan Gets New Color Option
The Suzuki Burgman Street also gets a new color option – Matte Blue. Other paint schemes include Metallic Matte Blac, Metallic Matte Fibroin Gray, Metallic Matte Bordeaux Red, and Pearl Mirage White.
LED DRLs For Suzuki Access 125
The new Suzuki Ride Connect variants of Suzuki Access 125 also get an LED DRL (Daytime running lamps) and two new color options – Metallic Royal Bronze and Matte Blue to distinguish them from the regular variants.
Will existing Burgman Street customers get a system upgrade?
Since the Burgman Street maxi-scooter was already having a digital LCD, hence its existing customers could expect a system upgrade so that they also can use the connectivity features. But the makers haven't shared any information regarding this and we believe that there will be no way of retrofitting Ride Connect for existing customers.
These smartphone connectivity features are a delightful addition for both the scooters and will help them strive more strongly in their respective segments. We expect from Suzuki two-wheelers to introduce these features in Gixxer ranges as well.
The brand is also working on an exclusive chain of dealerships, particularly for premium motorcycles. Therefore, we could expect more premium products to be launched soon. The Suzuki V-Strome 650XT BS6 could be the first one.
