The Suzuki Burgman Street shares its chassis and engine with the Access 125 and sits above the latter in the Indian two-wheeler market. The Burgman Street stays true to its maxi-scooter design with its comfort-enabling features aerodynamic shape. The maxi-scooter features a flexible foot position for the rider, which aids riding comfort, while the bulbous fairing looks the part.
