Suzuki Burgman Street EX: what’s new?
Compared to the existing Burgman Street variants, the EX gets a larger 12-inch rear wheel (in place of a 10-incher) with a wider 100/80-12 tyre, a silent starter system and an auto start/stop function. Suzuki has also equipped it with its new Suzuki Eco Performance Alpha (SEP-α), tech that's said to be an advanced version of Suzuki’s fuel-saving Eco Performance Technology.
There are also some minor differences in the dimensions and weight. The EX weighs 1kg more (at 111kg) and has a 25mm longer wheelbase but is 5mm narrower than the standard Burgman.
The EX is continued to be powered by the same 124cc, 2-valve, single-cylinder engine that does duty in the rest of the Burgman Street range. However, the EX puts out 0.1hp less (8.6hp) at a slightly lower rpm while the torque is the same at 10Nm.
In terms of features, the Burgman Street EX gets an LED headlight, a Bluetooth-enabled LCD and a USB charging socket. The new Burgman Street EX can be had in three colours – Platinum Silver, Bronze and Black.
