Suzuki Burgman Street 125 Reaches Dealerships Ahead Of Launch
Suzuki dealerships have started receiving the maxi-styled scooter since bookings for the soon to launch Burgman Street are already underway
Earlier, we had reported that Suzuki dealerships have started accepting bookings for the Burgman Street 125 for a token amount of up to Rs 5,000. And now, with the 19 July launch date inching closer, Suzuki has stocked showrooms up with the much-anticipated scooter.
We are expecting it to be priced at a premium over other 125cc scooters in the market, around Rs 65,000 to Rs 70,000, to be precise. So, is it an expensive proposition? Not really! It’s been designed and positioned as a premium scooter that sits above the Suzuki Access which retails for Rs 59,118 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the disc brake and CBS variant.
And the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 certainly makes a compelling case for itself with its list of features. It gets an integrated LED headlamp, Gixxer-derived all-digital console, body-mounted windscreen, a multi-function key slot, a 12V charging socket and an LED tail lamp. Furthermore, the scooter also has some generous underseat storage and two storage bins on either side, placed behind the front apron, tubeless tyres and alloy wheels.
Suzuki hasn’t spilled the beans about the power figures, however, it was confirmed at the Auto Expo 2018 that the scooter uses the same engine used to power the Access. The 124.3cc, single-cylinder motor produces 8.7PS of power at 7000rpm and a peak torque of 10.2Nm at 5000rpm on the Access.
The Suzuki Burgman Street 125 employs telescopic front forks and a hydraulic monoshock unit at the rear. Braking duties are handled by drum brakes on both ends with an optional disc for the front. Since the Access comes equipped with Combined Braking System (CBS), we expect Suzuki to equip the Burgman Street with the same.
