The Suzuki Access 125 scooter gets a retro design with a rectangular headlamp having a chrome surround which adds to the premium-ness of the scooter. However, the front end is not exactly stylish. Viewed from the side, the panels on the scooter are plain. It looks decent with a big tail lamp and the chrome cover on the muffler takes the style quotient a few notches higher. The patch of grey plastic adds to the styling though exactly not adding to the looks.
