Suzuki Motorcycle India has showcased its premium luxury scooter, the Suzuki Burgman 650 at the 2018 Auto Expo in Greater Noida. Here are the scooter’s live images from the show.
The Suzuki Burgman 650 is the brand’s flagship scooter offering for the international market. The bulky looking scooter comes with a small adjustable (forward and backward by 50mm) back support for the rider; and a cushioned backrest for the pillion as well. A large electronically adjustable windscreen sits atop the apron-mounted dual headlights. The underseat storage has a generous 50-litre capacity. The analogue-digital combo cluster shows a variety of information like average fuel consumption; oil level indicator; oil change indicator; drive mode indicator (for Drive and Power modes), and a gear position indicator (for Manual mode).
At the heart, the Suzuki Burgman 650 employs a 638 cc twin cylinder DOHC engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection. It generates 55 PS at 7,000 rpm, and 62 Nm at 5,000 rpm. The powerplant pairs with a Suzuki Electronically-controlled CVT (SECVT). It offers three distinct transmission modes: two fully automatic modes (Drive and Power) and Manual (5-speed, button operated). Other notable electronic features include heated grips and seats, and an immobilizer.
The tubular frame with aluminium swingarm rides on telescopic front fork and swingarm-type coil springs at the rear. Twin discs at the front and a single disc at the rear come with dual-channel ABS as standard. The Suzuki Burgman 650 features a 15-litre fuel tank, and weighs 277 kg, kerb. The scooter is only for showcase, and is unlikely to enter our market. However, Suzuki has unveiled the Burgman Street for the Indian market at the expo, and will be launching the product soon.
