Suzuki’s premium scooter offering, the Suzuki Burgman Street has been spied in the country for the first time.
The design of the Suzuki Burgman Street is in line with the Burgman range of premium scooters, which Suzuki sells abroad. Autocar reports that Suzuki will launch the scooter in the country at the 2018 Auto Expo next month. The scooter is also reportedly developed by Suzuki indigenously. In the international market, Suzuki sells the Burgman in the 125, 200, 400 and 650 cc guises.
The Suzuki Burgman Street seems to have an apron-mounted windshield. The headlight is likely to be mounted on the apron. The indicators appear to be of bulb-type, which flank the LED tail light. The exhaust gets a stylish design as well. According to the website, the scooter is likely to have a telescopic front fork; front disc brake; digital instrument cluster; large underseat storage space; 12V charging port, and tubeless tyres.
While the engine specifications of the scooter is unknown, it is likely to use a 150 cc mill, as Suzuki already has a 125 cc scooter which is doing well in the market. It would be the second maxiscooter in the country, after the Kinetic Blaze. In the 150 cc scooter segment, the Burgman Street will rival the Aprilia SR 150, and the Vespa VXL/SXL/Elegante 150. Expect more details about the upcoming scooter in the weeks ahead.
