Burgman Street price expected to be competitive, slightly over than Grazia…
BikeAdvice was the first publication which revealed Suzuki’s intents of introducing a ‘sporty’ scooter and ‘soon’ is what we said. Autocar shared the first spy pics of Burgman Street and there was a widespread belief (or uncertainty) that this could be a bigger (than 125 cc) engine. However, just a day before the Auto Expo we scooped that Indian Burgman will be a 125 cc scooter (link to our report).
At the Auto Expo, Suzuki officially unveiled the scooter and this marks the debut of the international ‘Burgman’ brand which comprises of sporty and comfortable maxi-scooters in India. Burgman Street will be Suzuki’s most premium scooter and carries over the design DNA of the international Burgman range which comprises of 125cc, 200cc, 250cc, 400cc and the flagship 650cc.
Suzuki also cleared that it will carry the same 124 cc engine of the Access which produces 8.7 PS of peak power at 7000 rpm and 10.2 Nm of torque at 5000 rpm. Burgman is expected to carry very similar specs.
In terms of features Burgman Street comes with ‘big’ scooter design, LED headlamps, body mounted windscreen, alloy wheels, multi-function keyhole, combination braking system (CBS) and gets a 12 inch tyre at the front and a 10 incher at the rear; along with a disc brake upfront.
Burgman Street Price (expected)
Suzuki should be launching the Burgman very soon, probably within a few months, and this is what we expect it to cost.
|Burgman Street||Rs 62,000-64,000|
Yes, unlike others who are predicting significantly high premium over the Access SE, we think Suzuki will, instead, keep a distance of only Rs 2000-4000 over it, for it to be competitive and volume raking!
Burgman Street will be Suzuki’s attempt at maintaining its leadership in the 125 cc scooter space which has seen various players from Grazia to Ntorq and SR125 recently.
