Suzuki has released fuel-injection bikes with 115cc which should be the first for them to have FI bikes in their lineup. As we already know, FI bikes are known for their accurate fuel and air measuring that can provide maximum power for minimum loss of unused fuel. With this in mind, Suzuki stated that this Shooter 115Fi are 37% more fuel efficient compared to their same 115cc bike without FI system. 37% is a very large number for a moped in terms of fuel efficiency as we can see the bike can be ride longer with less frequent fuel stops. Also, an example of it is that if the bike can go 200km per fuel tank, now it can go all the way up to 274km roughly but that’s only in theory.
There are 3 variant of the Suzuki Shooter 115Fi that is:
- Shooter 115 Fi SR with alloy cast rim and front disc brake.
- Shooter 115 Fi R with normal steel spoke rim and front disc brake.
- Shooter 115 Fi with normal steel spoke rim and front drum brakes.
The engine is using LEAP technology that refers to Light, Efficient and Powerful. This concept is achieved by the use of roller rocker arm that minimise the friction, the optimised valve angle and valve spring and the use of lightweight piston and crankshaft. All this providing 6.9kW (9.3ps) at 8,000RPM which is very powerful for a bike at 115cc. This power specs is also the same with the Suzuki Nex scooter.
Other features on the bike that is notable is the use of safety shutter key that can prevent theft. Included is the large underseat box (U-box) at 8.0L but still can’t fit the helmet in.
A good choice from Suzuki to the ever growing market in Indonesia.
