3. Suzuki Access 125 SE- Special Edition
The retro, classic look of the Suzuki Access 125, received a special makeover when Suzuki launched its Special Edition model in June 2018. Celebrating the success of the Access 125, Suzuki has added some cosmetic and mechanical upgrades to distinguish it from its standard version. Offering three lovely color options- Metallic Sonic Silver, Metallic Matte Black and the Pearl Mirage White, Access 125 SE has grown to be one of the best-selling models in the country. The special edition model comes with a stylish logo emblem, black alloy wheels, round chrome mirrors, and a sporty grab rail, while preserving the retro look of the Access 125.
The Suzuki Access 125 SE uses the CBS (Combined Braking System). CBS is a cost-effective technology that results in smoother and more controlled braking, along with reduced braking distance.
