The launch of Suzuki Avenis 125 surprised almost everyone!
It already had two scooters that shared the same engine. And now, this is a third scooter sharing the same engine yet again.
VG Suzuki, the authorized distributor of Suzuki scooters in Nepal, is preparing to take the market by storm.
However, the overall styling takes a drastic detour from its other two siblings.
With a price tag of Rs. 2.99 Lakhs, it is currently the most expensive scooter in Suzuki’s portfolio.
As expected, it is packed to brim with exciting features and brand-new styling. However, it does miss out on a few of its interesting features.
We will talk about those misses in a bit.
What makes Suzuki Avenis so special? With competition dominating the market, will it be able to stand out?
We are still busy testing out the new Avenis 125. And, we will share our in-depth thoughts in the Full Review.
Until then, here is something to keep you busy.
This is the first ride Impression of the new Suzuki Avenis 125.

Suzuki Avenis 125 First Ride
Suzuki Avenis 125 debuts a brand new styling. In contrast to the existing Suzuki scooters, it has a more sporty and stylish appearance.
Suzuki calls this the “Advanced Sporty Styling”.
However, there is a strong resemblance with the TVS NTorq 125. It looks like the sculpted lines and creases have been heavily inspired by the NTorq.
The front section sports a body-mounted LED headlamp. Moreover, the side indicators have been integrated along the handlebar.
There is a unique blacked-out windshield.
Yet again, the side profile is the most familiar one. It shares a muscular appeal with its aggressive claddings and sharp lines.
The side section has an uncanny resemblance with the NTorq.
Unfortunately, that familiarity continues at the rear section as well. It includes a split-type LED lamp with a split-type grab rail.
Suzuki has tried its best to create something unique here, but it isn’t original enough.
Suzuki Avenis 125 comes in four colors: Green, Orange, White, and Black.
Suzuki Avenis 125 is powered by a 124.3cc, Single-Cylinder, 2-valve, air-cooled, SOHC, FI engine. It generates a max power of 8.7PS at 6750rpm and a max torque of 10Nm at 5500rpm.
Moreover, it is mated to a CVT transmission with a 5.2-liter fuel tank capacity.
Avenis 125 gets the same engine as seen in both Access 125 and Burgman 125. So, it is a BS6-compliant FI engine.
On top of that, there is considerable part sharing between the two.
The engine components, tyres sizes, suspension setup, ground clearance, and a few other features are shared between the siblings.
The dimensions are 1895mm in length, 710mm in width, and 1175mm in height.
Suzuki Avenis 125 comes with a 160mm ground clearance. And, the kerb weight stands at 106kg.
Unlike its siblings, Avenis 125 sports a 22–liter massive under-seat storage.
We will talk about all of these features in detail in our Full Review article and video. Until then, here is a quick list of features in the new Suzuki Avenis 125 in Nepal.

First Ride Experience
Suzuki’s 125cc engine has always been an underrated one. That is why Suzuki has chosen to use the same engine yet again.
We had previously experienced the Suzuki engine on our Suzuki Burgman review.
After riding it for a short time, the new Fuel Injection seems to replicate the same experience.
As expected, the engine is super refined. There are no major vibrations at any speed.
One weird thing kept happening.
We were approached by many people during testing to confirm whether or not it was a new version of the TVS NTorq.
Keeping that in mind, we will try to explore those similarities in our full review.

There are a few misses to take note of.
Suzuki Avenis comes as a Standard Edition, instead of Bluetooth-enabled Ride Connect. Hence, the riders will miss out on cool features like Turn-by-Turn Navigation, Call Alert, Speed Alert, Estimated Time of Arrivals, and more.
Moreover, Suzuki has still opted to use a 10-inch rear wheel.
The small tyre was one of the key issues with the Suzuki Burgman 125. Hopefully, Suzuki has done something to correct that.
Riding it for a few hours will not be enough.
We will tackle the issues head-on in our full review. This has been the first ride for the Suzuki Avenis 125.
