Suzuki’s Chinese companion Haojue has revealed a mini journey bike in newest patent pictures, and the bike appears to take a whole lot of design inspiration from the Suzuki V-Strom 1050. There’s the signature beak up entrance, massive windscreen, muscular gas tank, extensive single-piece seat and a chunky seize rail. The facet panels additionally give the bike a glossy end, and the tall and extensive handlebars have the everyday handguards that appear to have develop into obligatory on any journey-styled mannequin.

The design actually appears interesting for a mini-ADV, and Suzuki already has the Suzuki Gixxer 155 on sale in India, so it is unlikely that an all-new journey bike based mostly on an engine made in China may make its solution to Suzuki India’s line-up. The new 160 cc journey bike although will possible solely be bought in China, and below the Haojue model, however count on another markets to get a smaller model of the Suzuki V-Strom, presumably with an engine extra within the area of 300 cc. A Suzuki V-Strom 300 will definitely be extra interesting than a V-Strom 160.
