I wish i was SIXTEEN

Suzuki introduces step, hayate, skydrive, in asian markets..but why in the world they never introduces the so called  sixteen  

It was 2008 when europe launches this one of a kind beautiful scooter in spain, to compete with those 250cc type in their market. With its elegant style, with a touch of retrospect, launching it here in the philippines might be the break SUZUKI philippines would wanted to boost their chances of beating other competitors with the first Fuel injected liquid cooled scooter if ever.

Plenty of Storage

A lockable front box for gloves etc, a bag hook below the instrument panel, underseat storage for a small helmet.

Tough 16-inch Wheels
Simple but sporty aluminium-cast, 5-spoke 16-inch wheels that run smoothly even over cobbled roads.

Combined Dual Disc Brake

This system allow braking action to feel steady. Gripping the right brake lever acts on the front wheel, while gripping the left brake lever applies a well-balanced pressure to both wheels to help bring the bike to a smooth stop.

Urban Friendly Engine
The fuel-injected engine gives good start-up performance, has high fuel efficiency and is green-friendly.

Rider-friendly InstrumentationClearly laid out instrumentation includes a large speedometer. Handy oil change indicator lights up after the first 1,000km and then every 4,000km after that, signalling the accurate timing for an oil change.

A Design Maximised for ComfortA low 800mm seat and a floorboard that curves slightly inwards just below the feet, make it easy to get a firm foothold on the ground. Stopping and going on busy streets won't be a chore anymore.
