Suzuki launched a new powerful 150cc scooter, that is good news, but what's wrong. Why don't we love scooters? When I say 'we' I mean 'we' the owners of full body road bikes at large, 'we' the motorcycling fraternity and 'we' the simple minded, down-trodden working masses.
The new Suzuki Sixteen 150 and his little 125cc brother are scooters with a kick, powered by a 156cc 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, SOHC engine with a compression ratio of 11.2:1. The Suzuki did clearly not hold back on using the latest technology, so is the scooter electric fuel injection system with ultra modern electronic ignition with and the latest on automatic transmission this all gives the Suzuki Sixteen 150 a impressive fuel economics, never seen before on a full automatic scooter.

The Suzuki engine is capable deliver 17 horsepower on the rear wheel in constant drive.

Road handling is excellent the telescopic forks with coil spring and oil damping handle the front suspension while a swingarm with two coil spring, oil damped shocks are for the rear suspension.
