The Suzuki Burgman Street 125 cc scooter was recently spotted on public roads in Gurgaon by YouTube user Yatharth Chauhan. The upcoming scooter was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in February earlier this year. The video was captured during the filming of a television commercial for the Burgman Street in preparation for its launch in India.
In terms of design, the Suzuki Burgman Street is unlike anything currently on sale in India. It features LED headlamps and windshield mounted on the front. The scooter measures 1,884 mm long, 661 mm wide, and 1,163 mm tall. It is the smallest member of the Suzuki Burgman scooter family, which includes the Burgman 650, Burgman 400, and the Burgman 200.
Power comes from a 124.3 cc single cylinder engine with air cooling mated to a CVT. It's the same engine as the Access 125. The exact specifications have not been revealed yet. In the Access 125, this engine develops max power of 8.7 PS at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 10.2 Nm at 5,000 rpm.
As per the information shared by Suzuki at the Auto Expo, the Suzuki Burgman Street gets a telescopic front suspension and hydraulic type at the rear. There is a disc brake up front and drum brake at the back linked by Combination Braking System. The scooter rides on 90/90 - 12 54J front and 90/100 - 10 54J rear tubeless tires.
Suzuki has not announced an official launch date of the Burgman Street yet. The only information the company has provided is that the launch will take place in 2018. As per a report from April, the scooter will be launched by the end of June.
Suzuki will position the Burgman Street above its other 125 cc offering - Suzuki Access 125. Expect pricing to fall in the INR 65,000 - 70,000 (ex-showroom) bracket. Rivals will include the TVS Ntorq, Honda Activa 125, Vespa 125, Aprilia SR 125, and the Honda Grazia.
