Suzuki Philippines (SPH) has recently revamped its small-displacement offerings with the launch of the new Avenis. This ‘muscular sporty scooter’ now joins the Japanese manufacturer’s growing scooter lineup alongside the Skydrive models and the popular Burgman Street.
It looks to have both the styling and the price tag to compete in our scooter-crazy market. But how does it really stack up against the competition? We’re here to give you a rundown on all the specs and details about this new bike. If you want to learn more about the new Suzuki Avenis, read on.
Only one variant of the Avenis is available, and it sells for P77,900. Color options, as seen in the image above, are namely: Metallic Matte Black, Pearl Mirage White, and Pearl Blaze Orange. All colorways come with two-tone finishes. SPH is also offering a two-year or 20,000km warranty on the Avenis.

Design and dimensions
The Suzuki Avenis measures 1,895mm long, 710mm wide, and 1,175mm tall. It has 160mm of ground clearance and a 1,265mm wheelbase. Seat height is listed at 780mm, while curb weight is at 106kg.
The Avenis sits on 12-inch front and 10-inch rear wheels shod in 90/90-12 54J and 90/90-10 53J tubeless tires, respectively. It still has a small rear wheel like the Burgman Street, but the Avenis’ rear doesn’t look as unproportional.
The Avenis boasts a very stylish look with sharp lines accentuating the front clip. It features a familiar layout with a low-mounted headlight.
Up top, it gets a small windshield-like panel flanked by the sinal lamps. This is somewhat mirrored by the split-type taillights at the rear. The scooter also gets decals and a shiny 3D badge on its sides. The rather bulky muffler also gives the scooter a beefier look.

Engine and specs
The new Suzuki Avenis is powered by a 124cc air-cooled, single-cylinder gasoline engine that generates 8.58hp at 6,750rpm and 10Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. This engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission. Suzuki claims the Avenis with this powertrain tops out at 115kph. World Motorcycle Test Cycle figures, meanwhile, indicate this scooter can do 54km/L.
The suspension setup is composed of front telescopic forks and rear hydraulic shock absorbers. Stopping power is handled by disc brakes up front and drum brakes out back.
For an affordable scoot, the Avenis has its good share of extra tech. For starters, there’s a digital instrument cluster loaded with info including fuel consumption, battery voltage, and engine temperature. On top of the usual stuff like the fuel gauge and speedometer, the panel also has an engine–check and oil-change indicators as well as a display clock.
No ABS here, but the combi-brake system should suffice for a bike of this size and caliber. It also has a brake lock system that can be engaged via the left brake lever to secure the scooter when parked.
The Avenis also gets a one-liter front glove box with a built-in USB charging port, a 21.8-liter underseat compartment, and two hooks above the floorboard. The fuel tank, meanwhile, is accessible from behind the seat. Suzuki decided to place the fuel lid here for added convenience and safety when refueling.
Other amenities here include a push-to-start ignition with an integrated kill switch. The side stand also has a safety switch that shuts off the engine and prevents startup when engaged.
