Nameplate and Indian Version
At the Auto-Expo 2018, Suzuki took the wraps off from its indigenously developed premium scooter for India, the Burgman Street. The Burgman name is associated with Suzuki’s flagship scooter family; and currently, the company has it in 125, 200, 250, 400 and 600cc variants for the international markets and the Indian market will get the 125cc line-up. The Burgman nameplate makes its first Indian debut, although it isn’t the full-size Burgman.
Much like Burgman family, the, street too, is designed nicely and features a unique front-end, thanks to the large apron and windscreen. The seat (going by Burgman family traits) is also wide and comfortable. It appears to share its mirrors with the Suzuki Gixxer. The exhaust of the Burgman gets an elaborate shroud, as well.
The Burgman Street is powered by a 124.3cc engine, which is the same used by Suzuki in Access 125. This engine produces 8.6hp at 6,500 rpm and 10.2Nm at 5,000rpm. The other engine specifications are expected to be the same for the Burgman Street, as well.
The Burgman Street will be the first Maxi-Scooter to go on sale in India since the kinetic Blaze. Burgman features a fully digital instrument cluster, a telescopic fork, multi-function key slot, good amount of underseat storage, a 12V charging socket, tubeless tyres and an LED tail-lamp.
In international market, Burgman focused on more comfort rather than the design and is expected to offer the same in India. To offer more comfortness the Burgman Street features a telescopic fork and a monoshock and has a 90/90-12 tyre at the front and a 90/100-10 one at the rear. In addition to this, it gets a disc brake, at the front and a drum brake, at the rear.
Suzuki is expected to launch the Burgman Street soon in the Indian market. It is likely to cost you around Rs 60,000 to Rs 62,000.
