Suzuki’s Burgman automatic scooter is now available in a new Matte Black paint scheme, giving it a meaner look. The scooter is mechanically unchanged, and is priced at Rs. 69,208 (ex-showroom Delhi). Apart from the Matte Black paint scheme, the scooter is available in three other colours: Metallic Mat Fibroin Gray, Glass Sparkle Black, and Pearl Mirage White.
The new colour for the Burgman is meant for younger buyers, many of whom go in for matte wraps to make their sccoters stand out from the crowd. The Suzuki Burgman 125 was launched last year, and has been a head turner ever since thanks to its maxi-scooter inspired looks. In fact, the Burgman is the largest scooter money can buy in India presently, and has been a sales success for the Japanese two wheeler major right from launch.
Commenting on the launch of the Matte Black coloured Suzuki Burgman 125, Mr. Devashish Handa, Vice President, Suzuki Motorcycles India Private Limited, said,
Building on its existing popularity, we have introduced the Matte Black colour edition of Burgman Street that augments its style quotient and gives an unmatched road presence with a sportier and bold look. Suzuki Burgman Street has created a special place in the 125cc scooter segment in India by offering its unique value proposition and international big scooter heritage. Redefining luxury riding with comfort and style, Burgman Street continues to be the ultimate urban scooter, offering a captivating ride to the customers.
The Burgman is powered by a 125cc, four stroke force cooled engine that it borrows from the Access 125. This 124cc engine produces a peak power of 8.5 Bhp at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 10.2 Nm at 5,000 rpm. The meaty torque curve is what gives this scooter peppy performance within the city, and helps it stay ahead of most vehicles in the 0-40 Kph sprints from one traffic signal to the other. The scooter competes with the likes of the TVS NTorq, Honda Grazia and the Activa 125.
Other key features on the Burgman include its LED headlamp, a lidded glovebox integrated into the front apron, a body mounted windscreen, digital instrument cluster and an optional USB charger that most customers opt for. Telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear suspension ensures that the Burgman can handle bad roads effectively. There’s a disc brake up front while braking at the rear is handled by a drum brake. The scooter gets a combi-braking system as standard. Alloy wheels and tubeless tyres are also standard.
