Prime Minister's Task Force on Islamabad Chairman Faisal Sakhi Butt in a meeting held with CDA Chairman Engineer Farkhand Iqbal said that the provision of transfer facility for the residents is a main concern of the task force, which would help overcome the ever-increasing complexity of civic and development problems. He called for some viable solution to resolve the chronic issues of transport facilities, which is the need of the hour to facilitate the residents.

Faisal Sakhi Butt said that development projects worth billions of rupees had been executed without having any consultation with the residents of the city and other relevant stakeholders. The authority must take the residents of the city on board while executing any development project, he said. The government is committed to promoting the concept of public-private partnership to make the city the hub of economic activities.

He said that the prime minister had taken keen interest in development of the federal capital on modern lines and for this purpose the issues neglected during successive regimes had to be resolved. On the occasion, CDA Chairman Engineer Farkhand Iqbal said the authority was already working on the plan to launch a decent transport facility, providing the best travelling facility to the residents at nominal charges.

suzuki swish
A month after the Suzuki Swish 125 was reveal at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, the Japanese two-wheeler producer has launched the gearless scooter at Rs. 45,431 ex-showroom, Delhi. The Swish 125 carries the same design idiom as the Suzuki Access 125 but looks better and exudes a more premium feel.

Powered by the same 125 cc, air-cooled, single cylinder, 4-stroke petrol engine as on the Access, the Swish 125 has a maximum power of 8.7 PS @ 7,000 rpm and 9.8 Nm @ 5,000 Nm of torque – decent enough for the urban two-wheeler commuter. The scooter also features CVT, telescopic front shock-absorber with drum brakes in both wheels. The fuel tank and under-seat storage capacity of 6 litres and 20 litres, respectively, is the same as the Access 125’s. The Swish 125 also sports an attractive instrument panel, an aluminium grab rail for the rear passenger and a better looking muffler cover.

The scooter is targeted at those looking for a handsome vehicle that offers a little more attention-to-detail in terms of design. At Rs 4,000, it’s also priced a notch higher than the Access 125, which will continue to be sold alongside the new model that is being pitched as a slightly more premium option by the manufacturer.

In terms of competition, the Suzuki Swish 125 will lock horns with the Mahindra Rodeo and Duro apart from its own Access. So far, Suzuki Motorcycles have maintained a very conservative approach in terms of its offerings in the Indian two-wheeler commuter market, preferring to take one step at a time. With the Swish 125, Suzuki hopes to attract young urban buyers who want a bit of style and power from their scooters.
