The Suzuki Burgman Street looks appealing, thanks to its overall bulbous design. Its imposing front apron gets neatly laid out all-LED headlight and windscreen. The sculpted rear panels, bulky exhaust can and grab rails also follow the design theme seen at the front. Everything works well in its favour. Well, except for the skinny 10-inch rear wheel, which looks odd and out of place. As mentioned earlier, the Burgman Street packs all-LED lighting, which provide ample throw and spread of light at night.

The Suzuki Burgman Street is focused more towards practicality than features. This means, you get a generous 21.5-litre underseat storage space, which may not be the best in class, but still dwarfs the Grazia’s underseat storage bin by quite a margin. You also get additional storage behind the front apron, with a DC charging socket (comes as standard) on the left and enough space to carry a 1-litre bottle on the right. The floorboard is easily one of the best in the segment and is large enough to carry a laptop bag. Another thoughtful feature is the footrest moulded into the apron, which makes for a relaxed riding posture.

Designed as a more youth-centric scooter, the Honda Grazia looks much sharper than the Burgman. It follows a more aggressive design approach, with sharper lines and creases all across the body.

The first thing you'll notice about the Grazia is the massive angular LED headlamp. However, while they offer decent brightness in the city, our highway runs revealed them to be rather lacklustre. Other features include an all-digital instrument console with a 3-step eco mode for efficient riding style, a 4-in-1 key slot with a seat opener switch and an optional 12V phone charging socket. Storage space is also quite decent at 18 litres and can hold a half-face helmet.

If the two scooters were parked side-by-side, and we had to pick a winner, we’d go for the Burgman Street. And that’s simply because it offers something different in terms of design with the added benefits of practical features.

Let’s start off by saying, none of the scooters get a new engine. While the Suzuki Burgman Street borrows its motor from the Suzuki Access, the Honda Grazia packs the same engine as the Honda Activa 125.

Having said that, the engine has been tuned on the Burgman for better refinement and to offer better fuel efficiency than the Access. It’s also quicker than the Honda Grazia. The Honda, on the other hand, feels a little rough when rolling on the throttle. However, this behaviour changes dramatically once it gains some momentum.

According to our road tests, the Burgman offers an efficiency of 54.9kmpl on the highway and 54.7kmpl in the city. It packs a 5.6-litre fuel tank. The Honda Grazia, on the other hand, returns 46.7kmpl in the city and 48.4kmpl on the highway, with a 5.3-litre of fuel tank. This results in fewer fuel stops on the Burgman Street.
