Suzuki Access has joined the league of safer vehicles with its CBS technology for better and efficient braking.
Today Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited launched CBS in the drum variant for the Suzuki Access 125. This comes in as the new norms will take place from next month, vehicles above 150cc need to have ABS and vehicles between 125-150cc should have CBS as standard. While the Disc variant of Suzuki Access 125 got the CBS last year only.
For those of you not familiar with CBS. It stands for Combined Braking System. This system engages both the brakes with just left brake lever engaged. It helps in better balance brake distribution between front and rear brakes and further helps in reducing the braking distance. So the CBS will be a boon in panic braking situations, though it’s not as good as ABS but better than normal braking.
Mr Devashish Handa, Vice President, Sales, Marketing & After-Sales, SMIPL said, “It gives us immense pleasure to introduce the CBS equipped Access125 drum brake variant. Suzuki Motorcycle is committed to improving and innovating its products for better riding experience and the introduction of CBS to Access 125 drum variant is a step further to fulfilling this promise. Suzuki now has standardized its complete range of scooters with this safety feature. We are confident that with the new enhancements, we will be able to further add to the riding experience provided by our products.”
There are no other changes mechanically or design wise for the CBS variant. It gets the same 124cc, single cylinder, air-cooled engine which makes 8.7ps of power at 7,000 rpm and 10.2Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm.
Suzuki Access 125 comes in 6 colour options – Pearl Mirage White, Pearl Suzuki Deep Blue No 2, Pearl Mirage White, Candy Sonoma Red, Metallic Matt Fibroin Gray, Metallic Sonic Silver and Glass Sparkle Black. It gets a lot of chrome garnish around the headlamp and rvms. A central lock system, DC- charging socket etc.
The Suzuki Access 125 drum variant with CBS is priced at Rs 56,667(ex-showroom Delhi), which makes it around Rs 600 more than the regular variant. Which is a nominal amount for better safety and braking.
