Drag race and highway top-end battles have been featured many times on our website. Most of the time the race happens between motorcycles, cars and sometimes both. We have rarely seen a drag race of top-end race where automatic scooters are involved. Well, here we have a video that shows exactly that. The video shows a top-end race between Suzuki’s Burgman Street 125 maxi scooter and Aprilia Storm 125 automatic scooter. Which one would win the race? Let’s find out.
The video has been uploaded by KSC Vlogs on his youtube channel. The video starts by showing both the scooters and it conducted in two rounds. In first round, vlogger rides Aprilia Storm 125. As soon as the race starts, surprisingly, the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 moves off the start line very aggressively and it feels like the Aprilia had lost the race already. The Burgman maintained the lead for quite some time. Slowly but steadily, Aprilia started showing its colours and started gaining speed and within few seconds it leaves the Burgman behind. Both the scooters were aggressively running for the pole position but, Aprilia won the first round.
Before second rounds, vlogger swaps the scooter and rides Burgman Street. The response from the scooters remained the same where Burgman took the lead initially and Aprilia overtakes it later in the race. Aprilia Storm 125 won both the rounds and that is mainly because of the slight power advantage that it had. Both scooters belong to the 125-cc segment and more or less equally powerful. The Aprilia Storm 125’s engine generates a maximum of 9.52 Bhp and 9.9 Nm of torque. The Burgman Street on the other hand generates 8.6 bhp and 10 Nm of torque.
The power delivery in the Aprilia is linear whereas it’s quite sharp in the Suzuki Burgman, which has quick throttle response. That is reason why theAprilia was left behind by Suzuki initially in the race. Other factors that could have affected the results are riding style, weight of the rider, weight of the scooters itself and so on. We do not encourage doing such high-speed races on public roads as they are very dangerous. Always wear a proper riding gear while conducting such races and make sure that you are doing such activities on a closed patch of road or a race track.
