Suzuki has officially launched its Burgman Street in India at Rs 68,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). However, a week back we told you that dealers already had the scooter on display and also revealed tentative pricing. At the time, most Suzuki dealerships across India had begun accepting bookings at a cost of Rs 5,000.
The Suzuki Burgman Street uses maxi-scooter styling inspired by the larger Burgman range sold in global markets. It’s also the first made-in-India Suzuki scooter to feature an LED headlight and an all-digital instrument console. 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 two-wheeler is the Access 125-sourced 124.3cc motor producing 8.7hp at 7,500rpm and 10.2Nm of torque at 5,000rpm. Other mechanicals of the Burgman Street are also shared with its 125cc sibling. Braking hardware consists of a disc brake unit at the front and a drum unit at the rear. Since the Burgman Street is an all-new product, CBS is standard. With a kerb weight of 108kg, the Burgman Street weighs 7kg more than the Access 125, which sits at 101kg. While the bodywork on the Burgman Street is made of fibre, the Access 125 gets a metal front apron.
The Suzuki Access 125, on which the Street is based, retails for Rs 59,118 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the CBS variant. The Burgman Street will compete against the Honda Grazia, priced at Rs 63,994 (disc brake variant), and the TVS Ntorq 125, which costs Rs 59,687. There's also the sporty Aprilia SR 125 that costs Rs 66,957 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
We will be riding the new Suzuki 125cc scooter for ourselves, soon. Watch this space for more updates.
