Suzuki, the Japanese two-wheeler automaker had discontinued the Swish scooter from the Indian market in April, this year.

The new model will make its world debut at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, which is scheduled to be commenced from 25 October to 5 November.
The company has also released one picture of the scooter, revealing that it gets an all-new bodywork design. It looks much sharper and sleeker than the previous model. The headlight is now mounted on the apron and the lighting system looks like all LED. It comes with a raised pillion seat along with split grab handles. It is expected that the Suzuki Swish 2018 will be powered by the same 125cc, single-cylinder engine that also powers the Access 125. This SOHC engine churns out 8.7PS of power and 10.2Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a CVT automatic gearbox. Also See – Hero Karizma Modified To Look Like Suzuki Hayabusa
