We have already completed more than 10000 dispatches for Burgman Street within the first month. The positive customer sentiments and healthy demand in urban & semi-urban areas have spurred the growth momentum. This auger well for us ahead of the festive season.
The Suzuki Burgman Street takes its design inspiration from the Suzuki Burgman 650, which also premiered at the Auto Expo 2018. The scooter receives three colour schemes: Metallic Matt Fibroin Gray, Pearl Mirage White, and Glass Sparkle Black. The maxi-scooter design philosophy is highlighted by the flexible foot-forward position and large dimensions with bulbous proportions.
Other design highlights include a large front apron, a high-set windscreen, broader seat, and wide handlebar. The front apron features an integrated USB charger socket and utility storage pockets. The scooter gets a multi-function key slot with central seat lock and LED lighting for the headlights, indicators, and taillights. The maxi-scooter features chrome garnish on the front apron and a sporty muffler cover.
The Suzuki Burgman Street tips the weighing scales with a kerb weight of 108 kg, while it gets a fuel tank capacity of 5.6 litres.
