As London prepares for the beginning of the Olympics in just over one weeks’ time, commuters are already being advised to plan accordingly, following reports in the media of impending public transport chaos.

But according to the capital’s Suzuki dealers, and one high profile convert, smart commuters are already making their choice, as interest in powered two-wheelers grows, thanks partly to Suzuki’s diverse range of commuter friendly models and flexible, value-busting offers.

Boasting one of the most comprehensive line-ups in motorcycling, Suzuki offer transport solutions for virtually every need or pocket. With small capacity machines offering frugality like the Van Van 125, through to a comprehensive range of middleweights like the Gladius 650 that can cut a dash through traffic, right up to the luxury Burgman 650 scooter for the out of town commuter, the Suzuki range offers wide choice.

Rock star and commuter Keith Flint, who uses his Suzuki for London commuting agrees, “I’m a big fan of commuting into London on a bike. Come rain or shine I choose it over public transport or the car every time, simply because I can pretty much always guarantee I’ll be on time and arrive on the doorstep of where I need to be. Given the choice, there’s no contest and I don’t understand why more don’t consider commuting by bike”.

As an example, Suzuki’s highly regarded adventure bike, the V-Strom 650ABS, not only covers vast distances in comfort, but returns an impressive 71.9 mpg*, which when combined with its exemption from the congestion charge and ability to park for free, makes for a serious alternative to the car or public transport.

As well as Suzuki’s current offer, running until the end of July, where the entire range** is available on low rate finance, with selected models available with up to £800 cashback too, there are other great deals available in all Suzuki dealers across the UK.
