Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins had a pitstop to make on the way back from the #AusTest at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, heading to Jakarta in Indonesia on Suzuki business – to launch the new GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 range from the Japanese manufacturer.
The team turned-out in force to promote the new machinery at Cilandak Town Square, Jakarta Selatan - in front of more-than 2000 fans - where the two riders could meet the local media and the many Suzuki fans eager to see the new bikes.
The new Suzuki GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 are powerful and innovative machines in today’s 150cc sport segment; ready to hit the Indonesian market. The launch in Jakarta was their first appearance and the two models will be produced in Suzuki’s plant at Tambun, Indonesia.
Iannone and Rins enjoyed the warm welcome of the Indonesian fans as they launched the range, onstage to present the bikes to the public and also greeting the many journalists that were eager to meet them and gain their initial impressions about the new machinery.
Andrea Iannone: “It’s been really wonderful to meet all our fans here in Indonesia and be welcomed by their enthusiasm. Unfortunately, we couldn’t test the GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 as they are really new in the market, but they both impressed me for their style and their familiarity with the GSX-R1000R that we tried only a few days ago in Australia. Suzuki in Indonesia is a beloved brand, really appreciated by the people, and these machines look really as the perfect solution for commuters who are looking for a good compromise between style and performance.”
Alex Rins: “This was my first time in Indonesia and I loved the affection of the fans. We found an excited crowd waiting for us but also for the new models we’ve been called to introduce. It’s been an honour for me because I know how much the people here have been awaiting these specific models and it’s nice to see that the GSX-R150 and GSX-S150 are really nice and appreciated. I’m still young and it’s easy for me to think of all my friends having these kind of machines for their daily commuting as well as for their weekend short trips.”
