Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The Suzuki Burgman 400 and the Suzuki V-Strom 250 have been showcased at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. Here are the live images of the moto-scooter and the adventure bike from the show.
Suzuki Burgman 400
The Suzuki Burgman 400 is a full-sized performance scooter from Suzuki. The scooter features twin LED headlamps on the apron, with a large windscreen above them. The bulb-type indicators are integrated into the bodywork. The twin tail lights are LED as well. The scooter gets a multifunction analogue-digital combo cluster, with Suzuki’s Eco Drive indicator. The stepped seat comes with an adjustable back-rest for the rider; and the underseat storage stands at a generous 42 litres. There are two storage boxes in the front apron, with a USB charging port in the box on the right.
The Suzuki Burgman 400 draws power from a 400cc single cylinder DOHC mill with liquid cooling and fuel injection. The engine makes 31 PS of power at 6,300 rpm and 36 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. The powerplant pairs with a CVT unit. Telescopic front fork and link-type rear monoshock handle the suspension duty. The 15-inch front and 13-inch rear alloys are shod with 120 and 150-section tyres respectively. Brakes include twin 260 mm front and a single 210 mm rear disc brake, both with ABS. The scooter costs 799,200 Yen (MSRP) in Japan.
Suzuki V-Strom 250
The Suzuki V-Strom 250 is the least expensive adventure tourer from the stables of the Japanese brand. Suzuki has designed the bike based on the “Massive and Smart” design concept. The tank fairings extend into a front beak, on top of which the round headlamp nestles. There is a fly-screen above the headlamp for wind protection. A multifunction digital instrument panel displays all the vital information. There’s also a DC power socket on the side of the cluster. The display motorcycle features optional accessories like hard-case panniers, top box and knuckle guards.
Powering the Suzuki V-Strom 250 is a 248cc parallel twin mill. Pairing with a 6-speed transmission, it is capable of generating 24 PS at 8,000 rpm and 22 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The bike rides on telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock. Petal-type disc brakes on both ends bring the bike to a halt. The V-Strom 250 costs 570,240 Yen (MSRP) in the Japanese market.
