Suzuki launches new premium scooter 'Burgman Street' at Rs 68,000

Priced at Rs 69,000, it is billed as India's first "maxi scooter", loosely defined as big touring scooters that have engines bigger than 250cc. The scooter comes with a stepped seat, side-mounted exhaust and an LED tail lamp cluster at the rear.

Both the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 and the Grazia come with LED headlamps with position lights, while NTorq comes with standard halogen lamps with DRLs, however, while the Burgman gets LED taillamps, the other two get standard units.

The Burgman Street 125 is employed with a telescopic fork up front and a hydraulic type at the rear. The 125cc Burgman Street bridges the price gap between the entry-level premium, like the Honda Grazia (Rs 63,994) and the TVS NTorq (Rs 59,687), and the more premium Vespa LX125 (Rs 74,400). It also gets a small visor at the front to save the rider from windblasts on the highways. It will be available in three colours - black, grey and white.

In terms of utility, the Burgman Street gets a convenient and secured lid equipped front pocket with standard fitment of DC socket & USB charger as accessory. The under seat storage of the scooter is 21.51 litres, which is par for the class, though it would still not fit a full face helmet.

The 125cc segment in scooters is a very exciting place now where we also enjoy a strong leadership position.

As for the all-new Suzuki Burgman Street 125, it's the only maxi-scooter in this segment right now, and undoubtedly the only one to stand out among all three.

"The Burgman Street creates a new category of scooters in India, focussing on the concept of advanced luxury riding. The new Burgman Street will not only help us strengthen our portfolio in this segment, but will also help us cater a new dimension of scooter customers, who seek luxury and joy of riding". This motor produces 8.6bhp and 10.2Nm of torque and is mated to a CVT gearbox. However, it is 6 kg heavier than the Access, which will affect the performance of the scooter. The scooter gets front discs, while conventional drums do duty at the rear. Suzuki claims a maximum fuel efficiency of 53 km/l as per their global tests.
