According to a rendered image of the bike, the Bandit sports quite a hunky design and has low tank shrouds. The chassis and the mechanical components of the bike are based on the Suzuki GSX-S150, and while the naked roadster gets split seats, the Bandit 150 will most likely feature a single-piece seat. The tail section of the Bandit will also be lowered a bit more than its GSX-S150 sibling, and its instrument cluster will be brand new.

The Bandit 150 will draw its power from the same engine that we saw on the GSX-S150. The 147.3cc single-cylinder fuel-injected liquid-cooled engine develops a maximum power of 19 hp and a peak torque of 13.9 Nm on the GSX-S150, and the company is expected to use the same engine on the Bandit 150 with some minor re-tunes. The 6-speed transmission is expected to be seen on the Bandit as well.

Since the bike will be based on the GSX-S150, the telescopic forks on the front and the adjustable monoshock at the rear are expected to make a comeback on this bike as well. Both the ends of the GSX-S150 feature disc brakes, which will most likely come to the Bandit as well. However, the offering of the ABS still remains a question.

Suzuki is most likely to position the Bandit 150 below the GSX-S150 in the Indonesian markets. The launch of the bike is aimed at increasing the market share of the company in the international markets. The main rivals of this bike will be the Honda CB150SF and the Yamaha V-Ixion. Alongside the unveiling of the Bandit 150, Suzuki will reportedly unveil the Burgman Street maxi-scooter as well at the GIIAS 2018.

Suzuki seems ready with a long-term, number enhancing plan for their international lineup. The recently spotted and almost entirely camouflaged motorcycle that Iwanbanaran expects to be Suzuki Bandit 150 is a big reason of worry for their rivals.

Suzuki has two different engines under this category, one being specific to India and another one to the remaining South Asian market. This motorcycle will most probably carry the 149cc engine as Indonesian market already has two products based on this engine category. Suzuki GSX-S150 serves as an inspiration for this model as the side profile, especially the fuel tank area, resembles the lightweight street fighter.

A rear specific image was also seen a few days before this image but, this one clears how the front fascia will look in the production version. Suzuki can also consider changing parts from this test mule and surprise everyone with an all-new design in the last days of testing.

The engine and exhaust layout are similar to other 150cc bikes of this category but, Suzuki Bandit 150 features a metal plate for heat protection. The fact also clears that they are preparing for a mild touring friendly option that can be used by first-time motorcycle buyers for mile munching in a sporty attire.

For India, Suzuki can use this design and branding to cover up their target of achieving 1 million sales by 2020. Bandit and Intruder are successful Suzuki trademarks worldwide and, latter has already got itself a 150cc variant in India.

Placing Suzuki Bandit 150 parallel to Intruder 150 can bring some real fun for premium sportbike lovers of India. For Indonesia, the motorcycle will use 149cc, single cylinder fuel injected engine, producing 19 BHP and 13.9 Nm of torque. This powerful motor is expected to arrive in India at a later stage.
