The Honda Grazia rival is Suzuki’s most premium scooter for the Indian market; available for booking at Rs 5,000 in few dealerships.
With just about a week remaining for the launch of the Burgman Street, a select few dealerships have started displaying the new scooter. Some of them are also accepting bookings of the upcoming 125cc scooter at Rs 5,000, with the first lot expected to be delivered by end of July or early August.
There’s no official word on pricing, but according to a few dealers we contacted, the Burgman Street is likely to be priced between Rs 67,000 and Rs 72,000 (ex-showroom). For reference, the Suzuki Access 125 SE 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 (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Suzuki Burgman Street was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo earlier this year and will be officially launched on July 19. The new offering is Suzuki’s most premium scooter for India and is based on the popular Access 125.
The Burgman Street has a maxi-scooter styling that’s inspired from the Burgman range sold in international 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, generous 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 tried-and-tested, Access 125-sourced 124.3cc motor producing 8.6hp at 6,500rpm and 10.2Nm at 5,000rpm. Underpinnings 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.
