A week before the launch of the Burgman Street, dealerships have started displaying the new scooter and accepting bookings. Some dealers have also stated the upcoming 125cc scooter is likely to be priced from Rs 68,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Deliveries are expected to begin by the end of July or early August.
At present, there’s no official word on pricing, but according to a dealer in Delhi, the Burgman Street is likely to be priced from 68,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). We can expect Mumbai pricing to be slightly higher than that. The Suzuki Access 125 SE, on which it is based, retails for Rs 60,718 (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) The scooter was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo earlier this year.
The Burgman Street uses maxi-scooter styling that’s inspired from 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, the flagship Suzuki scooter has been equipped with a multi-function key slot, large underseat storage, a 12V charging socket (likely to be an optional extra), cubbyhole below the handlebar and an LED tail-lamp.
Powering the scooter is the Access 125-sourced 124.3cc motor producing 8.6hp at 6,500rpm and 10.2Nm at 5,000rpm. Other mechanicals of the Burgman Street are also shared with its 125cc sibling. For braking, the upcoming scooter employs 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.
