litre 3 cylinder
The Suzuki S-Ride from the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show was a
concept which aimed to blur the line between cars and
motorbikes, by offering the comfort and space of a small
car, and the fun high performance experience provided
by a motorcycle.
However in an admirable attempt to do both, the S-Ride
failed to do either all that well.
The S-Ride's 0.6 litre inline 3 cylinder and CVT auto
gearbox could never offer the sort of performance bikes
are capable of, and the impersonal tandem seating would
have left the passenger feeling completely forgotten.
The Suzuki S-Ride did have some tricks up its sleeve though,
'Lovers Sync' being one of them. This Technology (pronounced
gimmick) provided navigation to the location of someone
you are talking to on the phone.
The S-Ride was not the first time Suzuki tried to blend
cars with bikes, the Suzuki
GSX-R4 being an earlier, and far superior concept.
