Suzuki Motorcycle India has started dealer dispatches of the Burgman Street, according to Bikewale. The Suzuki Burgman Street is scheduled for launch on 19 July, and the maxi-scooter made its Indian debut at the Auto Expo 2018 in Feb.
Suzuki Motorcycle India will position the Burgman Street above the Suzuki Access 125 in the domestic market.

This motor develops a maximum power of 8.4 bhp at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 10.2 Nm at 5,000 rpm, mated to a CVT transmission. Braking hardware on the Burgman Street includes a disc brake at the front and a rear drum brake, while CBS (combined braking system) is standard.
