Suzuki Gs150r

Introduction

The new Suzuki GS150R is a eye candy. The bike was launched in January 2009. The bike looks macho, with the predecessors like GSX 1000 and GSX 1300 this bike looks pretty same with the graphics and the design. The bike looks awesome from the side view with a good aerodynamic tank setup. The side indicators are very well designed, in fact they have shock absorbers to get through bumpy roads without breaking the indicators. The side mirrors are also well positioned to get the perfect ride view.

I recommend this bike for people who:-

1. Are willing to ride most of the time with a pillion
2. Are willing to ride for long distances
3. Are willing to ride without shifting problems
4. Are willing to go for a pleasure ride
