GIXXER CUP 2018 OFF TO A BLAZING START AS DEFENDING CHAMPION JOSEPH MATTHEW STEALS THE SHOW

Coimbatore, July 10, 2018:  Neither rain-interruptions, nor the overcast conditions could dampen the spirit of either the riders, or the sell-out crowd as the 2018 season of the Gixxer Cup kick-started in an emphatic fashion at the Kari Motor Speedway, Coimbatore this weekend. Defending champion Joseph Matthew continued his fine run of form from last-year, overcoming a highly competitive grid, and challenging racing conditions to eke out impressive victories in Race 1 and Race 2 of the season opener of the Suzuki Gixxer Cup. In Suzuki Gixxer Redbull Road to Rookies, it was Zothanmawia from Aizwal, who took the top-honours in both, the Race 1, and Race 2 conducted this weekend.

In the Race 1, Matthew, who hails from Chennai, had established a strong lead in the initial laps itself, which he held on to, clocking 14:15:877 minutes over 10 laps. The fight for the second-spot had been a more closely contested affair between Aizwal’s Malsawmdawngliana (14:19:122) and Bengaluru’s Syed Muzamil Ali (14:19:181), with the former prevailing by a margin of just 59 milliseconds. It was a similar story in the Race 2 as well, with Matthew leading from start-to-finish, clocking 14:16:799 seconds, which also included this weekend’s best lap-time of 1:23:411 minutes. However, it was a role-reversal for the second and third spot as this time Syed Muzamil Ali (14:18:749) managed to narrowly edge past Malsawmdawngliana (14:18:951) in an exciting finish.

At the end of Round 1 of the Suzuki Gixxer Cup, Joseph Matthew leads the championship table with 20 points with Syed Muzamil Ali and Malsawmdawngliana in keen pursuit at 14 points each. Anthony Lalawmpuia, from Aizwal with 8-points occupies the fourth-spot, followed by Clinton Cordeiro with 7-point at the fifth-spot. Vidhan Dubey from Bhopal, and Sanjeev Mhatre, from Mumbai are tied at 6-points each.

Meanwhile, the Suzuki Gixxer Redbull Road to Rookies, was completely dominated by Zothanmawia. During Race 1, he clocked 14:23:901 minutes, while in the Race 2, he clocked 14:36:129 minutes including the round’s best lap time of 1:24:176 minutes. Aizwal’s PC Andy Lalhmangaihsang (14:47:701) emerged second in the Race 1 ahead of Jerome Vanlalrengpuia from Lawngtla, (14:50:264); while in the Race 2, Jerome from Lawngtla (15:04:514) wrested the second-spot from PC Andy Lalhmangaihsang (15:13:476) who finished third.

New Delhi, December 15, 2017: Celebrating the spirit of ‘Urban Brotherhood’, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd.

Commenting on the launch of the campaign, Mr. Sajeev Rajasekhran, EVP, Sales and Marketing, SMIPL said, For INTRUDER, our objective was to challenge the existing notions attached to what a typical cruiser should be, both in terms of its design and performance; by offering customers a new approach that was a blend of premium appeal and distinctive style. The campaign reflects the same attitude that one would associate with an ‘INTRUDER’ rider. The feedback from the customers has been extremely encouraging so far and we are confident that this campaign will add further momentum to the strong word-of-mouth publicity being enjoyed by the INTRUDER.”

Speaking about the new TVC, Mr Sanjib Kumar Dey, CEO K&L Arms, said, “Intruder with its cult design and efficient performance promises to change the urban riders’ on-road experience. And hence it is ‘India’s Modern Cruiser’. And the TV Commercial is an ode to the daring urban youth of modern India, who are fearless and are up for any challenge, not being a rebel (ala fast & furious). It’s how the youth of India reflects in everyday life. How they traverse through challenges ride it out with brotherhood. Exactly, how we plan the Intruder to effect the cruiser category with its ‘modern’ approach.”

True to its India’s modern cruiser badge, compliments with futuristic features and carries forward the lineage of the legendary INTRUDER with flowing character lines, big-bike like shrouds, and a distinctive twin exhaust that stands-out. Its low and long styling, with a long wheelbase, and a low seat makes both your daily commute and the weekend ride exciting with a rejoicing biker and explorer attitude!

INDIAN RIDERS SEAL THE ASIA CUP OF ROAD RACING CHAMPIONSHIP 2017 AT SUZUKI GIXXER CUP

Joseph Matthew clinches the 2017 Suzuki Gixxer Cup Championship

New Delhi, November 19, 2017: It was an exciting weekend of the wheel to wheel racing as the Suzuki Gixxer Cup Championship and the Asia Cup of Road Racing, under the aegis of FIM and FMSCI, in association with JK Tyre Motorsports, concluded today at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC).

Joseph Matthew of Coimbatore warded-off a spirited challenge from the defending champion Sachin Chaudhary, of Ahmedabad, to clinch the 2017 Suzuki Gixxer Cup Championship. For the final round of this year’s Suzuki Gixxer Cup championship, the added incentive for the racers was an opportunity to test their mettle against the continent’s best racers on the common grid for 2 races with the participants of Asia Cup of Road Racing. The local crowd, which had turned out in large numbers, had a lot to cheer as India’s Sai Rahil Pillarisetty took the top spot in both the races. Sai, however, had to dig deep to hold on to his top spot in the Race 2 as Japan’s Ms. Miu Nakahara ran him close, finishing just 0.19 seconds in the second-place

In the Suzuki Gixxer Cup, having entered the Round 4 with 56 out of a possible 60 points in the previous 3 rounds, Joseph reaped dividends of his previously consistent performances to stake claim to this year’s championship. Despite Sachin winning both the races at the Buddh International Circuit and collecting a 20-point haul, the 8-points earned by Joseph in Race 1 from a second-place finish ensured that he had the last laugh by wresting the championship from Sachin.

Sachin had earlier won the Race 1 as well in just 17:30.116 minutes, ahead of Joseph by 0.321 seconds. However, it was his stunning victory in the final race that had made it a Sunday to remember for the audiences that had packed into the iconic Grand Stand. Clocking 17:28:492 minutes over his 6 laps; Sachin edged past Mumbai-boy Sanjeev Mhatre by just 2.903 seconds to romp home. In the process, he took the second spot in the 2017 Gixxer Cup Championship with a total tally of 49-points, while Malsawmdawngliana of Aizwal managed a third-place finish with 43 points. Aizwal’s Lalmawipuia, who finished the fifth today, ended the championship in fourth-place with 42 points. Sanjeev’s second-place finish at the final race allowed him to end the championship at the fifth-place with 32-points.

In the Asia Cup Road Racing, racers are exposed to different environments, as they compete on unfamiliar tracks in the unfamiliar country on bikes they have never ridden before. The races are conducted in two-person teams where they pair-up with riders they normally battle within their national championships. Besides enabling them to test themselves against leading riders in other Asian countries the championship also provides the perfect grooming ground to prepare for their future international careers as they have to adapt to new languages, food and weather conditions while dealing with new racing challenges.

#NOTFOREVERYONE - SUZUKI TWO-WHEELERS RIDES-OUT WITH A BOLD NEW STATEMENT FOR GIXXER

New Delhi, August 29, 2017: Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL), a subsidiary of two-wheeler manufacturer - Suzuki Motor Corporation, has rolled-out a brand new campaign - #NotForEveryone for the popular Gixxer portfolio of motorcycles. Celebrating the ‘exclusivity’ that sets apart a Gixxer owner from the crowd, #NotForEveryone is a 360-degree pan-India campaign with strong digital amplification, print media and outdoor activations, besides the TVC that will play on national and regional TV channels.

Speaking about the TVC, Mr Sajeev Rajasekhran, EVP, Sales and Marketing, SMIPL said, “Moving away from the specification heavy content that dominates this category, with the new Gixxer TVC, we have taken a refreshingly new route to connect with our audiences by digging-out typecasts. In a segment that is cluttered with sameness, Gixxers have always offered customers an alternative with its blend of unique styling and functional excellence. We are confident that this TVC will not only bring out the youth even more closer to the Gixxer brand, but will also inspire them to break away from the shackles of conformism.”

Mr Kartik Iyer, CEO and Co-founder of Happy mcgarrybowen, said about his firm’s first outing with Suzuki Two-wheelers, "The campaign idea was born out of conversations with existing Gixxer owners. They all beamed a common passion around the bike, its looks and its performance. The other thing that clearly shined through is that they all are very proud of their unique choice. Our job was simple. Show the bike in all its glory and create a narrative that almost challenges the viewer. Taking on new-age stereotypes adds freshness to the campaign. Clearly this bike is not for those who want to ride with the pack, but ahead of it. “

SUZUKI GIXXER CUP KICKS OFF THE RED BULL ROAD TO ROOKIES CUP

Chennai witnessed the dawn of a new era for motorcycle racing in India this weekend when the Suzuki Gixxer Cup raised the bar yet again by introducing the Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup to India.

The venue was the ever so popular Madras Motor Race Track, which played wonderful host to an extended 5 day weekend for the Gixxer Cup and Road to Rookies Cup riders, alongside the Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship 2016.

The Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup is the first of its kind series which provides young and aspiring Indian racers a launchpad to the international racing arena! The first round of the Road to Rookies Cup was held in conjunction with Round 2 of the Suzuki Gixxer Cup, where 8 talented young riders between the ages of 13 to 16 years participated in 3 races with the elder and more experienced novice riders from the Gixxer Cup.

The action began with an introduction and orientation workshop conducted by Suzuki and Red Bull for the Rookies – theory classes, track ride through, sighting laps and practice sessions interspersed with feedback sessions from Suzuki’s highly qualified team of racing instructors.

Thursday was dedicated to Free Practice for all riders – Gixxer Cup Open, Gixxer Cup Novice and the Road to Rookies Cup. While the older riders got a chance to accustom themselves to the new and improved braking setup on the race machines, this gave the Rookies some additional time to get accustomed to their race machines for the coming 3 days of incredible racing.

This round had 3 races each for Novice / Rookies and Open – with some incredible racing! Living up to its reputation, the Suzuki Gixxer Cup races did not fail to disappoint the spectators and the racers alike, with very close nail-biting finishes and amazing sporting spirit and camaraderie among the fellow competitors!

Race 1 saw Sachin Choudhary take the first position ahead of Varoon and Alexander in the Rookies category, while Amarnath Rajan, Antony Peter and Joseph Mathew made up the podium for the Novice category. The Open Race saw last year’s podium finisher Meka Vidhuraj take the first position from R Rajinikanth and Vishwadev Muraleedharan in a very closely fought battle among 4 equally talented riders separated by 7/10th of a second!

Race 2 was the perfect opportunity for Sri Lankan Rookie Aaron Gunawardena to display his top form as he started the race from last on the grid (due to a crash in Race 1) and yet finished first with a hairs breadth of just 1/1000th of a second!

The Novice category was won by Amarnath Rajan followed very closely by Antony Peter who was just 7/100th of a second behind.

Meka crashed out of the Open race, leaving R Rajinikanth to battle with Vivian Gladwin and Vishwadev Muraleedharan for the top 3 positions.

Aaron made it a double by winning Race 3 in the Rookie category from Varoon and Alexander while Amarnath narrowly clinched first spot from Antony Peter with 3/100th of a second in yet another thrilling Novice Race.

The Open race witnessed an amazing comeback from Meka, who started last on the grid and eventually ended 2nd after Vivian Gladwin and just a tenth of a second ahead of Vishwadev!

SUZUKI GIXXER CUP RETURNS FOR SEASON 2

After a long and impatient off-season, the Suzuki Gixxer Cup returned for its second season this year. The popular one make race series, organized by the Madras Motor Sports Club (MMSC) and approved by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), returns as a supporting race for the Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championships in 2016.

In addition to the Novice Class (Under 23 years) and Open Class (Above 23 years), Suzuki took the Gixxer Cup one step further this year by collaborating with the Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup. The Road to Rookies Cup is a real launch pad for young riders in the age of 13 to 17 years to get access to the Rookies Cup in Spain and then on to Moto 3, Moto 2 and eventually MotoGP!

Thanks to the positive reputation and rapport garnered by the Suzuki Gixxer Cup in its maiden year, this season began with overwhelming participation for both Novice and Open classes, even from neighboring countries. Novice had a total of 39 entries and Open had 24 entries with many eagerly on the waitlist. Friday was spent with the riders going out on practice sessions in batches and getting re-acquainted with their race machines, feedback to the technical crew, and tweaking of the brakes and other minor adjustments. The race prepared Gixxer SFs have been upgraded to rear disc brakes, which helped in better braking control for our racers!

Saturday had 3 qualifying sessions – 2 batches for Novice – where the top 20 riders were selected, and 1 batch for Open – where the top 23 riders qualified for the final race grid. The day ended with the Novice Race 1 where our international participant, 13 year old Aaron Gunawardena clinched the closely fought race from Joseph P Mathew with a best lap of 1:21:161.

Sunday, as always, was the most energetic and active day of the Gixxer Cup weekend with 3 races lined up! Novice Race 2 had the riders in 2 groups, racing for 1st position and then for 4th, both being closely fought to the last lap. Finally, Aaron emerged the winner again, leaving the 2nd position for Joseph P Mathew and 3rd was claimed by Amarnath Rajan.

The grand finale was the Gixxer Cup Open race which had the big boys battle it out right from the green light! Stiff competition and a tight grid led to a crash followed by a restart, which resulted in an exciting race for the top 3. Last year’s frontrunner Meka Viduraj crashed out in the midst of an intense battle with B Rajnikanth, allowing Rajnikanth a well-earned win. 2nd place went to Vivek Mani and 3rd to Prabhu V.

It was satisfying to know that the race Gixxer SFs performed about 2 seconds faster per lap compared to last year, clearly showcasing how well the machines and riders have evolved in the past year.

A visit by some 200 enthusiastic Gixxer customers from the area added to the fun and fanfare as they witnessed the Team Suzuki pits, the race bikes and all the racing action up close!

At the end of the day, our deserved winners were as follows:

1. Novice Race 1

1 st: Aaron Gunawardena 9:03:050
2 nd: Joseph P Mathew 9:08:852

SUZUKI WINS MARUTI SUZUKI DESERT STORM IN THE MOTO CLASS WITH CS SANTOSH AND THE RMX450Z

Santosh makes it 3 wins in a row at the Desert Storm
Wins on his Suzuki RMX450Z by over 9 mins despite 60 min penalty

NEW DELHI, 11TH APRIL 2016: SUZUKI MOTORCYCLE INDIA PRIVATE LIMITED (SMIPL), a subsidiary of one of the worlds leading two-wheeler manufacturers, Suzuki Motor Corporation Japan, teamed up with Indias best rally-raid rider CS Santosh, to take top spot in the Moto Class at the DESERT STORM 2016!

CS Santosh defended the champions tag in the Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm in style as he powered his Suzuki RMX450Z Rally to a facile win in the Moto class by a handsome margin of over nine minutes ahead of many worthy competitors after close to 800 km of racing in soaring temperatures and testing conditions.

Santosh prepared for the gruelling rally by practising on the Suzuki Quadsport Z400 quad bike. "The valuable practice time spent riding the Suzuki Quadsport Z400 stood me in good stead in the rally. In fact, I would recommended that cross-country riders should prepare themselves by spending some time riding this true-blooded racing quad. Its fast and its demanding to ride," said Santosh.

But unlike his two previous wins in the Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm, his third victory in the 2016 edition, considered to be one of the toughest cross-country rallies in the country, came amidst high drama in stages 10 and 11 that ran in the night over a combined distance of more than 100 km. Santosh, who took command of the rally right from the first leg, opened up a massive lead of 53 minutes after nine stages.

However, on the 10th stage, which was the first of the two night stages, the Suzuki-supported rider failed to spot the passage control to get his time card stamped for reasons of bad visibility due to the dust kicked up by the cars ahead of him, was slapped with a penalty of 60 minutes for the infringement.

But Santosh went into the final 2 stages with a hugely motivated charge to finish with an overall lead of 9+ minutes for a total time of 11 hr 19 min 28sec to seal his win.

"I made it difficult for myself. The time penalty for missing out on the passage control came at the most inopportune moment. However, that&rsquos rallying, anything can happen. I am very pleased with this win and even more with the way the Suzuki RMX450Z Rally performed in these conditions," said Santosh.

For the 2016 Maruti Suzuki Desert Storm, the two-time Dakar participant rode the rally edition of the Suzuki RMX450Z, which carried special parts from the Dakar version of the motorcycle. Among the changes include a carbon-fibre sub-frame that also serve as auxiliary fuel tanks, Ohlin suspension system and bigger cooling system. For this rally, Jordi Grau, who runs the Suzuki Spain Team in the Dakar Rally, came down to lend his technical expertise.

"The modifications that we carried out on the bike helped us to eke out even more performance from the machine. It also improved the handling of the bike. I could tackle the roughest sections in this rally without any problems. I am extremely thankful to Suzuki for lending their unstinted support," said Santosh.

Baja, one of the most popular forms of off-road racing, involves 24 hours of racing on dirt tracks measuring more than 300 kilometres and poses the additional challenge of night racing, which changes the nature of the game significantly.

Indias top rally-raid rider, CS Santosh, piloted his Suzuki RMX450Z to deliver an incredible performance to win the Moto category of India Baja by a massive margin of over 58 minutes.

"Winning the first ever Baja to be held in the country is a perfect way to start the new year! Winning it on a brand-new Suzuki RMX450Z straight out of the crate makes it even more special for me. The 2016 model is a flawless machine with great handling and an amazing top speed," said the Bangalore-based rider. "I feel that this form of off-road racing has huge potential in a country like India because its very competitor friendly and does not put too much strain on the resources of the participants. I hope this format of off-road racing grows in the country," added CS Santosh.

To add to that, Santoshs team partner Joshua Pramod took his Suzuki Quadsport Z400 to finish third in the Overall Time classification as well!

Joshua Pramod said, "I have never been on an ATV in my life, and the first time I sat on the Suzuki Quadsport Z400 was literally at the start line! Basic training from Suzuki officials and guidance from CS Santosh got me started and then the trust and confidence in the Suzuki kept me going! The Quadsport Z400 has an amazing motor, is responsive like a motorcycle and comfortable as well. I&rsquod love to compete again with a bit more preparation next time!"

The Quadsport Z400 is the ideal Sport-ATV for high-performance off-roading with a sporty chassis, torque loaded performance, smooth power-output and throttle response thanks to Suzuki fuel injection and other cutting edge technologies borrowed from the Suzuki superbikes.

The overall times for the event were as follows:
  1. CS Santosh &ndash Suzuki RMX450Z &ndash 4:19:17
  2. Jes David &ndash 5:17:39
  3. Joshua Pramod &ndash Suzuki Quadsport Z400 - 6:07:25

SUZUKI GIXXER CUP ROUND 5 FINISHES ON EXCITING NOTE
  • World Champion Kevin Schwantz thrills racers & spectators
  • Ananth Raj claims the Open Championship
  • Vishwadev Muraleedharan wins the Novice Championship

New Delhi, September 30th 2015: Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) successfully completed its inaugural season of the Suzuki Gixxer Cup at the famed Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida the past weekend amidst the awe inspiring presence of 1993 500cc Grand Prix World Champion Kevin Schwantz and a very enthusiastic crowd of racing fans!

The Suzuki Gixxer Cup is a one make race championship organized by MMSC and approved by FMSCI which has been run over 5 rounds in Kari Motor Speedway Coimbatore, Madras Motor Race Track Chennai and now Buddh International Circuit Greater Noida.

The BIC was a befitting venue for the grand finale which hosted the final 4 races of the 2015 Championship! More than 800 customers and fans rode to the circuit astride their Suzuki Gixxer motorcycles and populated the grandstands to watch the exciting races. They also participated in the hugely popular lucky draw where almost 200 prizes were given out to Suzuki patrons!

The Open category (Above 23 years) saw Meka Vidhuraj pull out his trump cards and take both the wins by a noticeable margin, leaving Kamlesh, Rajinikanth and Ananth Raj battling for their place on the podium.

The Open Championship winner was Ananth Raj, who increased his margin over Abhishek V, who took Runner Up despite a crash in Race 1 and a mid-field finish in Race 2. Meka was the surprise holder of the 2nd Runner Up Trophy due to his successful stint in both races this weekend.

The Novice Races also had a double win by Vishwadev Muraleedharan, with Amarnath Menon coming 2nd and 7th in the 2 races. The rest of the podium spots were filled by Ajeesh, Simranjeet and Sebastian.

After a long and very close battle all season, the Novice Championship tilted in favour of Vishwadev thanks to his double victory, while Runner Up was retained by Amarnath by a comfortable margin. 2nd Runner Up was given to Sreejith, despite him not being able to attend the last round!

Both Open and Novice Champions go home with Suzuki Gixxer SF and Suzuki Gixxer motorcycles respectively, while the 2nd and 3rd positions take cash prizes of Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 10,000 each!

"For Suzuki as a manufacturer to be involved and supporting a series like the Gixxer Cup, what an opportunity for kids that wanna race, that have the opportunity to come get on a bike and get on track. Suzuki are making it so cost effective for young kids to get on a bike. Anytime you're riding a bike that's prepared by a factory, you are being watched by them too. When you go fast and you dominate a race, there's a lot of potential opportunity that could come to a bunch of Indian kids out of this program for sure.

This was my first time riding a Gixxer 150, and it was a lot of fun! I wish I could have done more laps on it. And riding a GSX-R1000 is always just unbelievable, it wheelies all the way down the straightaway at 200-220 on the back wheel, 290kmph down the back straightaway! The power, the handling, the ability of that bike is amazing!" -Kevin Schwantz, 1993 500cc Grand Prix World Champion

According to Mr. Masayoshi Ito, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd., "We end the Suzuki Gixxer Cup 2015 on a high note and a feeling of immense satisfaction! Not only have our Gixxer SF motorcycles performed extremely well, the riders who have raced with us through the season have also grown as racers and we all are surely going to take home many fond memories from this first season. The entire SMIPL family has worked hard to make this event a grand success and witness to the fact is the grand finale in the esteemed company of none other than legendary World Champion Kevin Schwantz! The Suzuki Gixxer Cup 2015 has been an amazing experience for Team Suzuki as well as all the riders, crew members and organizations that were a part of this project!

Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL), a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading two-wheeler manufacturers, Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, supported Nishigandha’s expedition as part of a story for BBC TopGear Magazine India’s September 2015 edition fittingly tagged ‘Ride of my Life’, by providing her with a Gixxer, spare parts and a support team.The Pune girl started from Jammu and rode Suzuki Gixxer for a grueling 14 days (July 31 to 13 August), through Srinagar, Kargil, Leh, Spangmik, Tso Kar, Keylong and Manali to successfully complete the difficult and dangerous journey to Mirsimka La pass. Marsimik La’s elevation is 18,953 feet above sea level and the temperatures are below zero, making it one of the most inhospitable terrains in the world. The journey was an eventful one, with the rider and her team changing routes several times because of road blockages. From being stranded overnight in extreme temperatures because of broken bridges to having support from the Indian Army jawans in getting the road blockages cleared, the brave girl saw it all on her path to glory.The Gixxer 155 which Nishigandha rode was modified to adapt it to higher altitudes. The air gets thinner at higher altitudes so the carburettor settings had to be changed several times. Other modifications included changing the engine oil and air filter repeatedly. Gixxer’s performance impressed Nishigandha so much that she hopes to participate in next year’s Raid de Himalaya rally on the same bike.Mr. Atul Gupta, Executive Vice President - SMIPL, said "I am delighted with Nishigandha’s successful journey through one of the most difficult terrains in the world. We are also pleased that Gixxer has proven that it can conquer punishing topography. This feat was an excellent opportunity for Suzuki to gauge the response of Gixxer under extreme conditions. Our congratulations to Nishigandha on achieving this remarkable feat at such a young age."Speaking about her expedition Nishigandha Sarolkar said, "I attempted this feat last year on a different make bike, but couldn’t achieve it. The decided difference in this attempt was the Suzuki Gixxer and its superior quality of riding. The Gixxer is a great motorcycle and has an extremely well refined engine. It handled well on slippery and difficult terrains and was the ultimate in terms of riding comfort. Through this feat, I hope to inspire more women to take up safe motorcycling and my advice to all bike riders would be ride long, ride safe!"ABOUT SUZUKI MOTORCYCLE INDIA LTD (SMIPL)Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited is a subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan wherein they have the same manufacturing philosophy of VALUE PACKED PRODUCTS right from the inception.
