The fuel tank is muscular but not as extreme as GSX-S150 and it comes with the fully digital instrument cluster. Suzuki placed foot pegs towards middle and seating position is upright. The new Suzuki Bandit 150 comes with single piece seat but it is curved for rider and the company has reduced the height of rear. Suzuki has also given LED tail lamp and indicators are shared from GSX-S150. The alloy wheels are finished in black color and the company has given engine guard like most of its competitors.
It is powered by the same engine from GSX-S150 and the 147.3 cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine puts out 19 bhp of power at 10,500 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. And is mated to a 6-speed unit.
