A spokesperson from Suzuki Australia told INFO MOTO that while it has no plans to bring in this model in the next twelve months, it admits that the bike would fill a big gap in its product range.

Is this the new Suzuki GSX-S300 naked bike?

Suzuki’s Chinese partner Haojue has revealed its DR300 for Asian markets, which may be headed for Australia as a Suzuki GSX-S300.

It’s just a rumour at this stage, but with no 300-class naked in its stable, the bike could fill a gap in Suzuki Australia’s model range.

INFO MOTO has contacted Suzuki for an update on its future model plans.

The GSX-S300 would rival the likes of the Honda CB300R and Kawasaki Z300, which are each priced below $6000 before on-road costs.

In DR300 guise, the learner-ready naked bike features KYB upside-down forks, LED lighting and a digital instrument cluster.

Power comes from a 298cc liquid-cooled parallel twin, which is reported to produce 28hp (20kW) and 28Nm, while its six-speed transmission allows for a fuel economy figure of 3.3-litres per 100 kilometres.

Suzuki Australia’s LAMS offerings currently include the GSX-S125 and GSX-R125, the DR-Z400 supermotard, the SV650 naked bike and the Boulevard S40 cruiser.
