Read about Suzuki Zeus bike review. Suzuki Zeus motorcycle is a top-end motorcycle in India.
The Suzuki Zeus marks the Japanese
giant's entry into the executive segment of the
Indian bike market. The Zeus is Suzuki's second
offering after the entry-level bike Heat.
The Zeus is equipped with a single cylinder, air-cooled, four-stroke 124cc engine that generates a peak power of 8.7 bhp (one of the lowest in its class) at 7000 rpm and a maximum torque of 10 Nm at 3500 rpm. Thus the lack of power is offset by the overall torquey performance. Zeus is one of the few bikes in the market that do not have a constant velocity (CV) carburetor.
On the styling department, the unique front bikini fairing and under-engine front cowl imparts a stylish and aerodynamic look to the Zeus. The V-shaped, large multi-reflector headlamp enhances visibility and bright gear indicator lights come above a speedometer and a quick-reacting tachometer in classic twin-pod format.
Despite offering some goodies like optional disc brake for the front wheel, die-cast sub-frame and aluminium rear grab rail, the Zeus misses out on crucial features like electric start, box section swing arm for better turning stability (the Zeus features a conventional tubular swing arm) and thicker rear tyre.
