USER OPINION

QUICK FACTS
Overview TVS Suzuki Shogun was one of the earliest bikes that were brought to India for everyday commute. It was powered by 108.2 cc, single cylinder 2-stroke engine that was good for 14 BHP at 8500 rpm and 11.4 Nm at 8250 rpm. The engine was mated to a 4-speed gearbox and helped the Shogun reach a top speed of 105 kmph. The performance is actually comparable to current generation 135 cc bikes while its low weight of just 114 kg made it even comparable to 150 cc motorcycles of present time. It rivaled none other than Yamaha RX100 and returned a fuel economy of about 40 kmpl only.

TVS Suzuki Shogun Review

Overview

The TVS Suzuki Shogun a.k.a “The Boss” was launched by Suzuki in 1993 to lock horns with the Yamaha RX 100. It was a race-horse in its segment. With its silencer making an explosive firing sound, it was definitely an face-turner. Unfortunately, the boss had to withdrawn from the market in 2000 in lieu on the stricter emission norms which put an end to the sale of two-stroke bikes.

Engine and Gearbox

The Suzuki Shogun was powered by a two-stroke, single cylinder 108.2cc air-cooled engine churning out a maximum power output of 14 bhp @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 11.4 Nm @ 8200 rpm. The engine was mated to 4-speed constant mesh gearbox.

Brakes and Suspension

The bike was equipped with 130 MM Dia internal expanding drum brakes on front and rear wheel. It got a front telescopic, oil damped suspension and a rear swing arm, hydraulic shock absorber with coaxial spring suspension.

Top Speed and Mileage

The Boss could sprint to a speed of 60 kmph in matter of just 4.5 seconds, with the top speed hovering around 105 kmph mark. It returned a mileage of around 40-45 Km/pl.

Dimensions and Weight

The bike measured 1895 mm in length, 725 mm in width and 1053 mm in height. The bike came with a ground clearance of 156 mm and a 1208 mm of wheelbase. The bike weighed just 114 kg, and had a 12 liter fuel tank capacity.

Instrument Cluster

Initially, the TVS Shogun had an instrument cluster similar to AX100 series – A speedometer, odometer and a fuel gauge. However, based on customer feedback TVS redesigned the instrument cluster and introduced an all new electronic tachometer.

Shades & Variants

The bike was only available in a single variant painted in the classic Red-Black shade.

Price in 1990s

The bike was offered at a price of INR 18,000-20,000 (approx.) making it a value for money purchase.
