Suzuki Motorcycle India has gifted five Gixxer SF 250 motorcycles to Surat traffic police. The activity was in line with Suzuki’s CSR road safety initiative. The newly inducted bikes have been so designed that they meet police specific needs. Suzuki presented the keys to RB Brahmbhatt, Commissioner of Police, Surat.
The company has been manufacturing bikes meant for police duty in white so as to keep the cop’s fleet unique. The newly gifted bikes are fitted with red and blue beacons at the front. Equipped with side boxes, all the five Gixxer SF 250 motorcycles have a baton holder at the back to fit a baton up straight. Besides, the company has placed police stickers on the windshield, body panel, and side boxes.
