Suzuki Philippines has brought in the latest-generation Suzuki Skydrive 125 as it continues to corner a significant chunk of the local motorcycle market.

Designed and developed entirely in Japan, the Suzuki Skydrive embodies its Japanese heritage as it combines both traditional excellence and innovative technology. Its aerodynamic body is capped with a multi-reflector headlamp while its 14-inch alloy wheels give the Skydrive a sharp look reminiscent of a Japanese katana.

A magnetic shutter key for the rider's security and peace of mind, an under-seat compartment, a stylish muffler guard and a die-cast rear footrest for a passenger's stable and comfortable ride evokes a Japanese kabuto, the tough and resilient traditional Japanese helmet worn by a samurai.

The Suzuki Skydrive packs an E10-compatible 125cc 4-stroke, air-cooled engine. Capable of putting out 7hp with 9.6Nm of torque, the Skydive's optimal engine combustion is assured by its patented Suzuki Jet Cooling System and its Pulsed Secondary Air Injection system, making the Skydrive a performance-oriented yet fuel-economic scooter.
