Suzuki GD 110

The chronicle of me learning how to ride a manual transmission motorcycle is far from over. It was just on hold for quite some time because I don’t have the motorcycle yet to practice on, and mostly due to procrastination.

But enough with the procrastination, I’ll deal with that sooner or later (hah!). I want to write today’s post about Suzuki’s newly unveiled commuter bike that has the potential to be a best-seller: the Suzuki GD 110. This bike has a manual transmission and will be one of my potential candidate for the task of learning and riding a manual transmission bike.

What makes this motorcycle exciting for me: there is a good instrument panel with gear indicator (I don’t like guessing what gear I am in at the moment). I’m a visual person. Although I learned how to ride a motorcycle on a Honda C70 with non-working instrument panel, I want every information easily seen. The other specs are very similar to other bikes that I’m eyeing at the moment (we’ll discuss them in other upcoming post).

From the Suzuki website here is the overview about its other features:

THE ADVANCED COMMUTER BIKE

Ready to meet your daily riding needs efficiently, economically and comfortably.

NEW 4-STROKE 113CM3 SOHC

Efficiency and economy for you. The GD110’s 4-stroke SOHC engine, created with a close attention to delivering high combustion efficiency and low mechanical losses, is a new standard-setter for economical, fuel-efficient performance and user-friendly, low-environmental-impact operation.

FEATURES FOR LOW ENVIRONMETAL IMPACT

Inside the muffler, a metal honeycomb oxidation catalyzer efficiently cuts down on carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrocarbon (HC) emissions. Emissions are also reduced by the Suzuki PAIR (Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection) system that injects air into the exhaust port to ignite unburned gases.

HIGH EFFICIENCY DESIGNS

The new powerplant’s high efficiency designs bring you years of economical use. A digital DC-CDI system delivers highly optimized ignition timing, enhancing fuel efficiency. Efficiency is further heightened by a BS-type carburetor featuring smooth response to throttle action and a large-capacity air cleaner box.

DURABLE AND EASY TO MAINTAIN

The GD110 shares with the rest of the Suzuki lineup the renowned quality ensuring years of dependable service. Equipment that contribute to the ease of maintenance include drum brakes which are note easily affected by water or mud, a cassette-type oil filter, and easy-to-repair, easy-to-replace 17-inch tube tires.

The most important winning feature of this bike is that it is very affordable at P50,000. That’s the same price range as most underbone motorcycles in the market now. But since it is a commuter bike, it is expected to offer a more stable and a more mature riding experience.

At this point, I think I’m ready to graduate from the underbone motorcycle (but I will not let go of Yorick, that’s for sure) and move on to the commuter segment.

So who will win our hard-earned money for the right to be my next motorcycle? Let’s find out after a couple of months. See you in my next posts!

Cheers!

    wala po yatang fuel gauge.

    • Arjay (--,) says:

      Yes, wala po siyang fuel gauge. Yun din ang isa sa hesitation ko sa kanya. Iniisip ko nga kung meron nabibili na fuel gauge na pwede ikabit sa gas tank cap. Pero kung wala – tantiyahan, fuel dip stick at visual check na lang para ma-check kung kailangan na magpa-gasolina.
      :)

    • sir how about the fuel cock? meron bang reserve position? eto cguro sagot kung bakit walang fuel gauge…

  2. dennis wakas says:

    pwede kaya mag modifiy nang fuel guage para ma monitor naman fuel consumption…..

    • Arjay (--,) says:

      Pwede naman sa tingin ko pero matrabaho saka dapat make sure na sealed yung point kung saan ipinasok yung tubo ng sensor. Baka kasi pag umulan ng malakas, pasukin ng tubig ang gas tank. :)

  3. Pardz says:

    puwede bang kabitan ng sidecar at gawing pampasada?

  4. Virgilio Lara says:

    Hindi na mentioned ang Km/liter at puwede po bang malaman ang max HP niya against RPM.

    • Arjay (--,) says:

      Naku boss, wala pa along datos ng km/liter at yung hp vs rpm. I-research ko na lang siya at lagay ko dito.

      Pero sa tingin ko, maganda ang km/liter niya dahil 110 lang ang engine displacement.

      • Virgilio says:

        Sa tingin ko po ay maliit nga lamang ang Km/liter niya at believed naman ako sa performance ng GD. Balak ko pong kumuha ng 5 units ng GD gawin tricycle, ok po bang pang tricycle ang GD, recommended po ba ito. Mayroon po bang kasamang promo na libreng helmet at Jacket? salamat po.

        • Arjay (--,) says:

          Sa pagkaka-alam ko, GD 110 na ang pinaka-mura na motor na pwedeng ikabit sa tricycle bukod sa mga China-made na tatak. Kung patag lang ang biyahe at bihira ang matarik na paakyat, sulit naman siya. Marami-rami na rin akong nakita dito sa Malabon at sa Pasig na mga GD 110 na tricycle. Pero kung kailangan ng malakas na hatak paakyat, dapat e mas malaki na konti na makina o mas malakas na torque tulad ng Honda TMX (me bago silang modelo nito na malakas ang dating) o ang Kawasaki Barako (laki ng makina kaya walang problema sa hatakan).

          Dun sa helmet at jacket, depende po ata sa dealer kung me promo pa sila kasi ang alam ko, promo nila dati yun na may libreng jacket na may tatak Suzuki. Yung helmet naman e madalas libre na hindi branded (pero ayos na rin kung wala ka pang helmet). Basta inquire kayo sa dealer niyo kung ano mga freebies at malamang e meron naman kasi lima na units ang kukunin niyo. :D

  7. yam afdal says:

    ako na ang may pinaka magandang GD 110 dito sa amin..isa lang ang comment ko.matakaw sa gasolina..

    • Arjay (--,) says:

      Salamat sir sa feedback. Parang nakakapag-taka lang na malakas sa gasolina kahit maliit ang makina. Siguro hindi kaya humatak pag maraming dala kaya pihit talaga sa silinyador.
