Suzuki Access 125 (Old Model) Review

30 Dec, 2021 05:17 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Alongside the Honda Activa, the Suzuki Access 125 is probably the top-selling two-wheeler automatic scooter in the Indian market. With its tagline “Access for all your wishes”, the Suzuki Access claims to fulfill the needs of the young driver who wants to get from A to B as quickly and conveniently as possible.

Design and Style

Unfortunately, the scooter’s design is not one of its strong points. While there are no outstanding negatives, it’s a distinctly underwhelming look. The front view is smart enough, with eye-shaped front turn indicators, but the body panels, painted in the body color, have no distinctive shape, and the rear-view mirrors and rear grab rail, both painted in grey scale, look rather dowdy and subtract from the overall look of the bike. The front turn indicators are slightly oversized and look a little strange, out of proportion with the bike’s body. The rest of the motorcycle’s body, including the side faring, is painted in the body color – this may appeal to some, but it lacks the subtlety of designs like that of the Honda Activa. Nevertheless, all of the fixtures and fittings are present, and they work adequately, although the overall build quality of the bike is not up to Suzuki’s usual high standard. The bike’s headlamp is of a good quality, with a strong and capable bulb, but it seems to have a short life.

Instrument Console

The instrument panel of the Suzuki Access fulfills its purpose but doesn’t bring anything to the table in terms of design or usability. It features analogue instruments for the speedometer and fuel gauge, both of which are relatively clear and visible, even in low light.

Engine and Gearbox

The bike features a 124cc single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled OHC engine with a maximum power output of 8.58 Bhp at 7000 rpm and a maximum torque of 9.8 Nm at 5000 rpm, including CV (Continuous Variable) transmission. It’s certainly a solid and capable engine for a bike of this size, with plenty of power.

Acceleration and Top Speed

The scooter’s power is evident as soon as you kick off from the curb, using either the kick or self-start options. The acceleration is truly impressive, bolting from 0 to 60 in an eye-watering 6.56 seconds. It boasts an excellent top speed of 92 kmph, which will be very appealing to highway drivers who want a fast and efficient ride. Its pick-up is excellent, even in comparison to the nippy Honda Activa, and what’s more, it’s a quiet ride.

Mileage

Suzuki claims that the bike offers an average fuel consumption of 42.6 kilometres per litre for city driving and 51 kilometres per litre on open highways. In test drives, the bike has been found to have a mileage of about 42 kilometres per litre, which is disappointing. The capacity of the bike’s fuel tank is 6.4 litres.

Comfort While Driving

The seat of the Suzuki Access is wider and longer than that of many competitor models, which adds up to a more comfortable and spacious riding experience. The upright seat supports the spine well, preventing fatigue during long rides, and the pillion rider will benefit from well-positioned foot pegs and a footrest. On the whole, it’s a well thought out effort, and riders will find the bike comfortable on long and short drives.

Safety Features

The Suzuki Access features a special shutter mechanism revolving around one control point, intended to minimize the chance of theft.

Storage Space

The Access offers a good amount of storage space – more than 20 litres beneath the seat, enough to stow a helmet or a bag.

Suspension and Brakes

Suzuki Access comes equipped with telescopic, coil-sprung, oil-damped suspension at the front, and swing arm type, coil-sprung, oil-damped suspension at the rear of the vehicle. This places it equal with competitors. In practice, the suspension performs very well, regardless of road surface. On even roads, the ride is smooth and vibration-free; on more bumpy terrain, it is very capable in absorbing shocks and bumps, and preventing unwanted feedback to the rider via the handlebars.

The bike features 120mm drum type brakes at the front and the rear. It’s unfortunate that Suzuki didn’t opt for more capable disc-type brakes, given the power of the bike’s engine but the drum types are acceptable, offering a stable and controlled braking system that is responsive. The stopping distance is slightly longer than is desirable, but at least the bike’s larger wheelbase and wider tyres restore some control to the scooter and reduce the probability of skidding.

Ride and Handling

Suzuki Access 125 offers a responsive and stable ride. It is capable of a tight turning circle and copes well with corners, staying well balanced even when leaning. Even at top speed there is very little vibration or feedback, and the suspension handles varying road surfaces without difficulty.

Tyre Size

The bike’s tyres, front and rear, are 90/100-10 size, a medium-sized fit that is appropriate for a bike of this type.

Shades

Determined to provide the sort of choice available to buyers of its nearest rivals, Suzuki has made the Access available in five vivid shades: Pearl Mirage White, Metallic Flint Grey, Metallic Sonic Silver, Candy Antares Red and Glass Sparkle Black.

Variants

The Access is available in a single standard model.

Accessories on Offer

The Access comes with a few nice accessories included as standard, including body-colored grips, an inner mat, leg-shield bending, front fender bending and a front box for additional storage. Seat covers and other accessories must be purchased separately.

Reasons to Buy and Value for Money

Suzuki Access 125 offers a powerful engine with great pick-up and good top speeds, as well as ample storage and some useful additional extras and special touches. The Access 125 is priced higher than many of its competitors, and many customers may feel that this isn’t warranted, given that the build quality is poor.

Verdict

Powerful and capable, the Suzuki Access nevertheless suffers from an uninspired design and some quality issues. For a casual driver, it’s a worthy buy; but beware that it may not last as long as you’d want it to.

Perfect Machine For Girls

I have been driving this scooter from more than 3 years and it has been wonderful experience of riding it. It has small tyres which do not have danger of getting slipped on roads. It has tubeless tyres so it cannot be easily get busted. It is perfect in size which makes it easy to ride in traffic where roads are congested. It has great fibre body in comparison to Honda Activa which makes it look good and light in weight. Its build quality is also good. The suspension is pretty good and gives you smooth ride even on bad roads. The paint quality is simply outstanding and glossy on its rust free body. The instrument panel is reliable, simple and easy to ride. The bigger fuel tank capacity and under seat storage are appended features. The other good factor is its price which is easily fits to our budget. It has a powerful engine and offers good mileage in city as well as highway.

Pros: Good build quality, affordable, powerful engine, good mileage

Best Suited for City Ride...

Akanksha Sharma | One year ago

I got my Suzuki Access 125 in July 2015. It is a little bit expensive than Activa but its pickup is far more better. It just justify the price tag. It is best scooter for city ride as it is fast and has good acceleration starting off. I have ride it at max 90 speed yet but its more comfortable at around 70. It is even good to ride on hilly area with a pillion. I have done many trips on my scooter with pillion and it was always fun to ride with no back pains. Initially, I faced some starting problem and now what I observe that after 2 - 3 mountain riding, the brake speed get less. I would like to score it 3/5 for mileage as I am getting 40 kmpl average on city roads and company claimed it 55 km/l. I t has a 6.5L fuel tank capacity so I travel freely without stopping for petrol.

A Good Deal for Sure

To be very honest it gives an ordinary look at the very first sight but when it comes to handling and performance, it is somewhat amazing. I bought it two years ago and it didn't give me any trouble till now. It gives an awesome average of above 40. This superb blend of power and style comes with many attractive features like telescopic front, suspension for excellent ride quality, Maintenance Free battery, tubeless tyres, central locking system & unique shutter mechanism for a single control point convenience & safety. Overall it's a nice experience

Best Features: Comfortable, Stylish, Awesome handling experience

Pros: Awesome mileage, reliable engine, Good looks, comfortable

Cons: No disc break, low resale value, poor customer service
