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

Rajeev Rajasekharan, Executive VP, Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd said the new Burgman Street will not only help us strengthen our portfolio in this segment, but will also help us cater to a new dimensionbof scooter customers. While the bodywork on the Burgman Street is made of fibre, the Access 125 gets a metal front apron.

"The Burgman Street creates a new category of scooters in India, focussing on the concept of advanced luxury riding". Though there are no direct rivals owing to its unique maxi-scooter design, the Burgman Street pose challenge to popular 125cc scooters like the Honda Grazia priced at Rs 63,994 (disc brake variant), TVS Ntorq 125, which costs Rs 59,687 and Aprilia's SR 125 retailing at Rs 66,957 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The scooter gets a very angular and sharp design and is targeted at the youngsters. The rider can also stretch his/her legs on the board behind the front apron.

The instrument cluster is an LCD unit that displays speed, odometer, two trip meters, clock, fuel level and oil change indicator.

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

- Based on the Access 125. It will be available in three colours - black, grey and white. In terms of features, this flagship Suzuki scooter has been equipped with a multi-function key slot, large under-seat storage, a 12V charging socket (which is likely to be an optional extra), a cubbyhole below the handlebar and an LED tail-lamp.

Powering the Burgman Street is a 124cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that delivers 8.58 BHP @ 7,000 rpm and 10.2 Nm of torque @ 5,000 rpm. The new 125cc scooter becomes India's first maxi-scooter with European style design similar to the globally sold Burgman. Suzuki claims a maximum fuel efficiency of 53 km/l as per their global tests.
