Got an iPhone? Chances are you could have used just about the same amount of money in buying yourself one of the rapidly growing forms of transportation in the country – the trusty motorcycle. And not just any kind of motorcycle but Suzuki’s newly launched GD110 – currently the cheapest motorcycle in the Philippines. With a retail price of only PHP 47,900, the new bike effectively brings the price of ownership to a comfortable level below the fifty-grand line. Combined with Suzuki’s environmentally-friendly engine and user-friendly features, the GD110 certainly promises to be a contender for the Philippine’s commuter motorcycle marketplace.
The Suzuki GD110 is powered by a 4-stroke, air-cooled 113cc SOHC engine that is designed with fuel efficiency in mind. (Though there have been no published mileage reports at this time, Suzuki mentioned that it is comparable to both their competitors and their own line of commuter bikes.) This is then paired with 4-speed transmission for less gear-shifting through traffic; and coupled with environmental features like the Suzuki PAIR (Pulsed Secondary Air Injection) system. The body itself is fitted with ease-of-use features for better and simpler handling as well – like the lower seat height designed with Filipinos in mind. Other features include new high visibility meters, indicator lamps, round headlamps and parking indicator lights for safety and better visibility.
What it basically boils down to is mostly the price, and the reliability of the Suzuki branding – for PHP 47,900 this is one good personal transportation machine; add the Suzuki badge there and you got a good guarantee that it’ll be one of the most durable motorcycles you’ll ever own. What’s more, Suzuki is offering replacement parts piece-by-piece (not per assembly), which will pass on even more effective savings when it comes to maintaining your new bike.
The Suzuki GD110 is available now for PHP 47,900 and comes in Pearlescent Black, Metallic Jade Royal Blue, and Metallic Silk Red. So check one out at your nearest Suzuki retailer if you’re so inclined.
