Is Suzuki Access 125 an introduction to the Best Riding Experience?

Since Suzuki Access 125 introduction to the Indian market back in 2007, it has been a leading competitor in the 125cc class. For almost a decade its dominance remained unchallenged.
Next, the revised Access 125 arrived, surpassing numerous 110cc scooters to emerge as the undisputed leader in the 125cc scooter market. Though it remains at the top of the hierarchy, will the most recent update help the Access 125 maintain its position? 

The scooter has the same curved design language as the previous generation model, with a headlamp mounted on the handlebar, turn indicators mounted on the apron, a contrasting seat, chrome trims to emphasise its premium appearance, and an exhaust with a tapered chrome heat shield that gives it an unusual appearance. Similarly, with consistent panel gaps and solid-feeling plastics, it keeps up its build quality, which is among the best in the class.
Engine and Gearbox 
The Suzuki Access 125's 124cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine runs even smoother than before. The engine performance rating after the BS6 updates is 8.7 PS and 10 Nm, which is the same power but 0.2 Nm less torque. 

The suspension system on the updated Suzuki Access 125 is among the best available. Whether it's large speed breakers or potholes, the setup is made to easily absorb them, providing great ride quality. The front disc brake and rear drum brake on the Access SE provide excellent feedback and progression. Furthermore, despite outperforming the previous generation model in terms of speed reduction, it is still not as agile as other scooters with front disc brakes. 

With the BS6 update, Suzuki added a few new features to the Access 125. First, a chrome bezel is added to the LED headlight. An eco-assist indicator—basically, a bar that changes from blue to green when you ride the scooter economically—is added to the semi-digital information panel. The Access 125 is the first motorcycle to come with an external fuel filler cap, which should make fueling up easy. Suzuki also unveiled new models that come equipped with Suzuki Ride Connect.

Suspension and Brakes
The Suzuki Access 125 BS6 shares the same mechanical fundamental as its predecessor. The underbone frame is suspended by a single shock and a front telescopic fork. The front wheel will either have a disc or drum brake depending on the variant, but all trims come standard with a rear drum unit and CBS. 

The Standard variant is available in four colours: Metallic Matte Black, Metallic Matte Platinum Silver No. 2, Pearl Mirage White, and Metallic Dark Greenish Blue. Metallic Dark Greenish Blue, Solid Ice Green/Pearl Mirage White, Metallic Matte Black, and Pearl Mirage White are the  four colours available for the Access Special Edition. Gloss Grey, Metallic Royal Bronze, Metallic Matte Black, Solid Ice Green/Pearl Mirage White, and Pearl Mirage White are the five colours available for flagship Ride Connect model.

Four variants of the Suzuki Access 125 are available: the Suzuki Access 125 Special Edition, the Suzuki Access 125 Drum - Alloy Wheel, the Suzuki Access 125 Disc - Alloy Wheel, and the Suzuki Access 125 Ride Connect Edition - Disc.

  • Despite being BS6 compliant, it still manages to produce the same amount of power as before.
  • One of India's most sophisticated scooters to this day.
  • Excellent ride quality that effectively absorbs bumps.
  • It's not very convenient that the fuel-filler cap is external. Unlocking it still requires you to get off the scooter.
  • Not as sharp as some of its competitors' brakes.
  • The style is starting seem outdated.

The base price of the Suzuki Access 125 is Rs 79,899, while the top variant starts at Rs 90,500. The Suzuki Access with steel wheels and drum brakes is priced at Rs 77,600.
