Bike and Car Mileage Reviews

Suzuki GS150R

Yesterday we wrote about Suzuki’s entry-level bike, the Suzuki Hayate. Like every other competitor in this space, the 150cc segment is where the action is considering this is where the demand for power and the demand for economy meet.


The Suzuki GS150R was launched in 2008 and has since then been conferred with the ‘motorcycle of the year’ in its segment by NDTV. The bike comes with a 149.5cc 4 stroke single cylinder engine equipped with a sixth gear for highways cruising. The maximum power delivered by the bike can be 13.8 BHP that translates to 13.4 Nm torque levels. The GS150R is priced at an on-road price of Rs.

71,517 at Delhi.

Suzuki GS150R Fuel Economy

Suzuki claims that their GS150R bike is where the commuter class blends with the premium class. In simpler language that translates to a bike that delivers on both mileage as well as performance. Is that true? According to Suzuki, the GS150R can draw a mileage of 55.7 kmpl under standard test conditions.

In comparison, the expected mileages of Yamaha SZ-x is around 62.4 kmpl while that of Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler is 60 kmpl – both these are bikes in the 150cc segment and have been tested under standard conditions.

Suzuki GS150R Test Drive Mileage Reports

MaxAbout has called the styling of the GS150R a little conservative. In their review, they report a city mileage of 48 kmpl while on highways, this is expected to go up to 55 kmpl. The mileage review is pretty similar from ProDease who rate the city mileage of Suzuki GS150R to be around 52 kmpl and the highway mileage to be 57.2 kmpl.

This appears to be a better deal than what was reported by Suzuki.

A slew of reviews report similar numbers with respect to mileage. According to IndiAuto.in, the GS150R with a 15.5 liter fuel tank and top speed of 120 kmph can deliver 45-50 kmpl on city roads that increases to 50-55 kmpl on highway stretches. MotorBeam reports the exact mileage ranges as provided on IndiAuto.

On XBHP, the mileage reviews for Suzuki GS150R are mixed. People have reported fuel consumption of anywhere between 40-56 kmpl on city roads. Some people report that they see pretty good mileage during the first few hundred kilometers that drops after servicing.

While that may be personal instances, the varying experience do not give us much information with respect to the actual mileage although we now know there are quite a few people who see lower mileages on the GS150R.

Something similar is noticeable on MouthShut.com. There are over 160 reviews for the GS150R with an average rating of 4/5 for fuel consumption. Although there are reports of mileage being as low as 35 kmpl, most people on MouthShut report the mileage to be around 48-52 kmpl so let’s take this as the norm.

Finally, checking into the bikes put up on sale at Olx, one could feel the mileages are pretty embellished. Customers selling the bike are reporting mileages between 50-65 kmpl. I honestly don’t think you can achieve 65 kmpl on the GS150R – that too in city conditions.

Do remember that people who have put up their bikes on sale always say the nicest things and so you don’t have to take them at face value.

So there you go. I have summarized the reported mileage from various sources in the table below. Comparing this with other bikes in the 150cc segment.

I notice that the mileage is not extremely bad and is pretty decent and consistent. So if you are already sold on the looks and performance, you should not bother much about the mileage. You may go for this one!
