The Suzuki Raider R150 has always been one of the more popular choices in terms of underbone motorcycles. The rather powerful engine coupled with the light frame gives the Raider a unique appeal in the market. Fans of the MotoGP Team Suzuki Ecstar can show their love with the new Raider R150 in the exclusive racing livery.
Suzuki has just unveiled its Team Suzuki Ecstar edition Raider R150 last weekend, inspired by the 2020 GSX-RR MotoGP race bike. The new livery commemorates Suzuki’s 100th anniversary celebrated on March 15th, 2020. It also marks 60 years since Suzuki’s racing project first began and pays homage to the team’s first world championship title in 1962 won by Ernst Degner riding its 50 cc race bike.
The 2020 Suzuki Raider R150 Team Suzuki Ecstar edition is powered by a 147.3 cc 4-stroke DOHC, 4-valve carbureted engine capable of producing 15 hp and 12.4 Nm of torque at 8,500 RPM mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. It also comes with a 4.9-liter capacity fuel tank.
Suspension duties are provided by a telescopic fork upfront and a mono-shock swingarm for the rear. Disc brakes on both ends slow the bike down and bring it to a stop. With a very Pinoy-friendly seat height of 764 mm and a dry weight of only 106 kg, riders wouldn’t find it difficult to swing a leg over the Raider R150 to take it through the city or on long sweeping provincial roads.
Even with its new racing livery, the 2020 Suzuki Raider R150 Team Suzuki Ecstar edition is still priced as its other color variants at P97,900. It’s available throughout the nationwide dealership network of Suzuki Philippines. With its popularity among Filipinos, we wouldn’t be surprised if they start scampering to their nearest dealerships to check out the new MotoGP livery of one of its best-selling underbones to date.
