Suzuki is all set to launch a premium scooter for the Indian market called the Burgman Street. The Burgman Street was spied recently, and as per Autocar India, Suzuki Motorcycle India is expected to launch the scooter at the Auto Expo 2018 scheduled in February.
The Burgman nameplate is not new to Suzuki as it sells the Burgman branded premium scooter in 125cc, 200cc, 250cc, 400cc and 600cc guises in the international market. For India, Suzuki will develop the Burgman Street indigenously to cater to the premium scooter segment.
The company is following the same strategy as the Suzuki Intruder 150 exclusively for India which is based on the bigger Intruder 1800. The Burgman Street's engine specifications are unclear as of now, but its expected to share the same unit as the Access 125. However, Suzuki could bring a 150cc powered Burgman Street to rival the likes of Aprilia SR150 and the Vespa 150.
The Suzuki Burgman Street is the first maxi-scooter in India since the Kinetic Blaze. The Burgman Street is expected to be feature-rich and expected to come with a fully-digital instrument cluster, a telescopic fork, disc brake at the front, multi-function key slot, large under seat storage, a 12V charging socket, tubeless tyres and an LED tail-lamp.
From the spy pics, the Suzuki Burgman Street is seen with an apron-mounted windshield, and the headlight is expected to be mounted on the apron. The turn indicators seem to be of bulb type, while the taillight is an LED lighting. The exhaust is quite stylish as well.
Also seen in the spy pictures of the Burgman Street are the leaner tyres; however the rim size appears to be of 14-inch, which is seen in the Aprilia SR150. The Suzuki Burgman range is focussed on comfort rather than a sporty image; we expect Suzuki to do the same in India as well.
With the focus on comfort, the Burgman seen here features a wide and comfortable seat with a pronounced step between the rider and the pillion pads. The mirrors of the Suzuki Burgman Street seems to have been shared from the Gixxer motorcycle. The Suzuki Burgman Street price is expected to be in the range of Rs 70,000 to Rs 75,000 in India.
The premium scooter segment in India has seen an unprecedented rise in demand in the recent past. With Honda launching the Grazia, Suzuki wants to take advantage of the rising popularity of premium scooter in India.
The Suzuki Burgman Street with its focus on comfort should entice scooter buyers in India as it offers rich features along with a comfortable ride.
