Suzuki Burgman Street First Look Review. The Suzuki Burgman Street claims to be India's first Maxi scooter and brings with it a new design and a host of features. So can the Suzuki Burgman Street take on the likes of the Honda Grazia and the new TVS NTorq & Aprilia SR 125 in India's burgeoning premium 125cc scooter?
Suzuki Burgman Street Design & Features
The Suzuki Burgman Street looks rather bulky when you first look at it but the mass plays a part in giving the Burgman Street its unique maxi-scooter look, something which is rather popular in European markets.
Up front, the large apron's edge plays host to a LED headlamp unit. Flanking the headlamp on either side are the turn signals which sit on the tips of the sides of the apron that extend outward.
Also present up front are two chrome strips that extend upward from the headlamps to the top of the front apron and flank either side of the body mounted windscreen that sits ahead of the handlebars. The handlebars themselves also feature a body coloured panel in the centre as well.
Also present is a digital instrument console that sits under the handlebars in a section on the front apron behind the cover of the large windscreen.
Other features include a multi-function key slot, two storage areas with a closed one featuring a single 12V DC charging port for smartphones on the front apron section and a cavernous under seat storage that can fit a full-size helmet.
The new Suzuki Burgman Street features a single piece grab handle that curves around the rear end of the scooter. The tail lamp section features clear lenses for the brake lights and indicators.

Suzuki Burman Street Engine & Performance
Powering the all-new Suzuki Burgman Street in India is the engine from the Access 125 scooter. The Suzuki Access 125 uses a 124cc that produces 8.6bhp @ 7,000rpm and 10.2Nm of torque @ 5,000rpm which is sent to the rear wheel via a CVT gearbox. Considering how smooth the Access 125 engine pushes forward, we expect the Burgman Street to power through with ease on the road.
The new Suzuki Burgman Street features telescopic forks up front and dual shocks at the rear which should help smooth out the bumps and shocks of Indian roads. The front wheel is a 12-inch alloy fitted with 90/90-12 tyre and at the rear the 10-inch wheel sports a 90/100-10 tyre. The front wheel also plays host to a disc brake which will help bring the heavyset Burgman to a halt quickly.
Suzuki Burgman Street Expected Price and Launch Date
Suzuki is expected to launch the Burgman in India later this year and prices are expected to start at around Rs 70,000 ex-showroom.
