Automobile giant Suzuki recently launched the Avenis for the young at heart. It’s a sporty 125CC scooter sold at Rs. 86,700 (ex-showroom, Delhi). From the initial visuals the Avenis appears to be a stylish scooter with futuristic design inspired by Suzuki’s classic design language. The Avenis will come in a slew of colours including Triton Blue, Metallic Matte Black, Pearl Blaze Orange, and more. It should be noted that the Avenis comes at a time when TVS NTorq and Hero Maestro’s are already being sold like hot cakes. Further, the Avenis will also compete with Honda Grazia and Aprilia SR 125.
It wasn’t too long back when scooters where the primary selling vehicles in the two-wheeler vehicle category. However, post the COVID-19 pandemic, the two-wheeler industry too faced a slump and the demand for scooters slowed down drastically.
However, the sales ratio between motorcycles and ratio remained the same in FY2020 as FY 2019 – 32% of scooters and 64% of motorcycles, proving that the need for scooters are still there. In the scooter market, Honda Activa and TVS Jupiter have been the shining star for their respective manufacturers.
Suzuki Access, Hero Pleasure, Hero Maestro and TVS NTorq are also among the highest selling scooters in India, as per Auto Car Pro.
Meanwhile, a new kid is in town. Suzuki recently launched its stylist 125 scooter to make a dent in the two-wheeler industry.
