Smile Suzuki's R-15 killer?

I happen to read that Suzuki is readying their own R15 killer , called the Lanza . It's said to be a 150cc , with full fairing and fuel injection ,and also a rear disc.Is this true or just a rumour?

no it's not the GS150R . It's supposed to be a sporty bike . Just like what Yamaha did a cheaper 150 and a full blown sports 150 , Suzuki is planning a sports bike with FI and full fairing along side the GS 150R.

Even the Telugu abuse is pronounced with a "J" And if I am not mistaken, it is used along with another word and it is the most favourite abuse of Auto Rickshaw drivers here, hurled at traffic police.

Dont know what to say. It might be the worst coincidence that will ever happen in Suzuki's history.

I meant the abuse is spelt with a "J" and not a "Z". So Suzuki is safe for the moment.

Reminds me of another old incident involving a bike name and its meaning in Telugu - the Hero Puch.

What's with bike names and their meaning in Telugu ?

Suzuki's R15 killer was launched 10 years ago in Malaysia. It was called FXR150 and made 20 bhp with a carb back then...more than 17bhp R15 and 19bhp CBR150.

GS 150 R still looks thin and not beefy.I feel Yamaha is certainly ahead in terms of R15 ad FZ16 and ofc in the Superbikes R1 and MT01 are class in their league.
In the end Im an Yamaha Fan !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suzuki FXR150 and Honda CBR150 are bikes which should head towards indian shores! Heck, i dont mind the CBR125 or the R125 adding colours to the biking scene in India !!!!
