Suzuki Motorcycle India has equipped the drum brake version of the Suzuki Access scooter with a Combined Braking System, at a price of Rs 56,667 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This comes after the disc variant of the scooter received a similar update in June 2018.
CBS is a useful feature that conforms to upcoming norms from the Indian government. It enables the rider to engage the front as well as rear brakes simultaneously with the use of only the left brake lever.
The system, claims Suzuki, reduces braking distance under certain conditions, enhancing safety. Apart from the addition of CBS, the 2018 Suzuki Access 125 remains unchanged mechanically as well aesthetically.
The 125cc single in the Access develops 8. 7 PS at 7, 000 rpm and 10 Nm at 10,500 rpm. These had been class-leading numbers until the TVS Ntorq 125 came along earlier this year. To see how the Access 125 stacks up to its competition, read our comparison here.
Speaking of this development, Devashish Handa, vice president for sales, marketing and After-Sales at SMIPL said, 'It gives us immense pleasure to introduce the CBS-equipped Access 125 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's drum variant is a step further to fulfilling this promise. Suzuki now has standardised its complete range of scooters with this safety feature. We are confident that with the new enhancements, we'll be able to further add to the riding experience provided by our products.'
