A better way to commute?

A better way to commute?

As Mayor of London Sadiq Kahn and TfL cause friction, not only with the reintroduction of Congestion Charges, but also a whopping 30% increase and plans to extend hours of operation, Suzuki is promoting a ready-made alternative.

As the lockdown eases and employees begin to return to work, they say there are inherent risks as many rely on public transport and in turn spend a great deal of time in a confined space with others.

However, Suzuki has a ready-made alternative: motorcycling.

Swapping a busy train carriage or bus for the social distance of commuting on two wheels brings with it many other benefits. It reduces journey times, with a study in Belgium concluding that if just 10% of commuters switched to a powered two-wheeler, journey times for all road users would drop by 40%.

Suzuki promotes its products as affordable and efficient - its Address 110 scooter, which returns 134mpg and can be ridden on L-plates after passing some compulsory basic training (CBT £100 for one day). The scooter costs £2,299 or £43 per month - that's £1.39 per day, less than the price of your daily high street coffee.

Suzuki's Burgman 125 scooter and GSX-S125 and GSX-R125 geared motorcycles can also be ridden on L-plates, and currently there's £500 off both of its 125cc motorcycles.

Fancy the idea?
