“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Suzuki Sling Shot + : Soft Launch

The Suzuki India website has been updated with details of the new variant of Suzuki Sling Shot - Sling Shot Plus

Visually there does not seem to be any difference, but there are subtle differences in the specs.  So here are the main differences -

  • The overall height of the Suzuki Sling Shot + has been increased by 20mm in the Disc version and by 25mm in the Drum version to 1,100 mm
  • The Sling Shot Plus gets a head lamp crown much like the FZ-16 S

The Suzuki Sling Shot Plus would be costing ₹1,000 more than the Suzuki Sling Shot.

To sum up, Suzuki was initially (meaning before the launch of the Suzuki Sling Shot Plus) the only manufacturer in Indian, making Indian bikes, which had 6 bikes in it's Indian portfolio, amongst which only 2 were Indian bikes and the rest were CBUs. The introduction of the Suzuki Sling Shot Plus takes the count of Indian bikes to 3, but in a very pale way.

  1. What do you think about the "O Suzuki Slingshot" TV Commercial..?? :-)

    Crores are being spent on airing it on TV

  2. Well bro... I rather not comment on that one... else if would one long paragraph full of the F word. Utterly irritating I would say. That money could have well been spent on coming up with a better bike in my opinion.

  3. The concept/execution of TV Ad looks like from the 1980's.

    Its a pity actually as Suzuki makes one of the best/smoothest engines and gearbox.

    Suzuki India needs to find some clear directions on what they want to do

  4. the tv commercial is dismal. worse commercial on tv right now, hands down. just doesnt make sense. like that the heck is it supposed to mean anyway? O Suzuki Slingshot? and the sardarji saying it again in punjabi accent.. o suzuki fuckshot is more like it.

  5. Dipam,
    Absolutely man... it's like an ill cooked egg, the only thing you can best with it is throw it away. The the resultant of that TVC clearly translates into the sales number of the Sling Shot. Till date I've seen none on Gurgaon roads.
