Conclusion on the Suzuki Naked Bikes in India
Currently, there are only two Suzuki naked bikes available in the Indian market. Entry-level streetfighter bikes are very popular in India and Suzuki can gain a decent market share if it launches more capable models from its international lineup. Suzuki should bring the international spec, GSX-S150 as it would be a great fit for the Indian market instead of the stripped-down Gixxer. The brand should also consider launching new bigger models like the GSX-S750 and GSX-S1000 to the Indian market.
