Suzuki G-Strider concept
bike shown at Tokyo Motor Show 2003
Is it a scooter? Is it a motorcycle? It looks like both, kind
of. The riding position with the feet pointing forward and the
automatic transmission (CVT = Continouosly Variable Transmission)
are features that reminds more of a scooter than a motorcycle.
Actually you can shift manually (electrically) if you want to,
by pushing buttons, similar to the Burgman 650. The saddle,
the footpegs, the windshield and the back rest are adjustable
for best comfort. The engine is a 916cc parallel twin, the power
output not mentioned.
Yes, it looks like a bike from a science fiction movie but nothing
on the G-Strider says that the model could not be launched as
it is. It is not full of exclusive electronics or computers
that would make the bike too expensive to build for masses.
Yes, it's a concept bike like the B-King was but many people
think it won't take long until we see a scooter/motorcycle hybrid
like the G-Strider hit the streets.
