The Suzuki Burgman Street is a maxi-scooter in every sense – comfortable, practical and very spacious
In recent times, Suzuki has been mastering the skill of sharing the underpinnings of its existing bike and getting a newer bike. Last month they did it again, but this time it was a scooter and we got to see the Burgman Street. A 125cc maxi-scooter from Suzuki which shares its underpinnings with the Access 125?. We rode the Burgman for the weekend in the city and took it out for highway duties as well. Even after being the same scooter from the inside, the Burgman feels very different on the outside.
Motor Quest: Suzuki launched the Burgman Street in the second half of 2018. Placed above the Access 125, the Burgman shares a lot of mechanical parts with its younger sibling. However, it comes with a slew of features like an LED headlight and extended footboard. The Burgman is also the first maxi-scooter from Suzuki in India.
Styling – The main attraction of the Suzuki Burgman Street has to be its design. It is the first maxi-styled scooter to come to India and boy it looks attractive. The large front apron incorporates the LED headlight in between along with the turn indicators nicely placed on either edge. The front windshield is there just as a design element and doesn’t really serve any purpose. A bigger windshield is surely recommended if you really want to travel the distance on the Burgman Street.
The Burgman might look bulky in pictures but it looks attractive in-person
The rear of the Burgman Street is equally bulky as the front and the tail-lights are LED too. The tyre size, however, could have been a little bigger as it feels like it has skipped leg day. The engine covers have been sculpted to match the overall design of the scooter. The chunky grab-rail and the beefy looking exhaust complete the rear of the Burgman Street very well. If you are someone who likes attention, then this scooter will get you enough of it with its styling.
Instrument Cluster and Switchgear – The instrument cluster on the Burgman Street is a fully digital black and white unit. It is enclosed inside the same plastic outer body as seen on Suzuki Gixxer, the information display is however completely different. It shows everything from the speed to the fuel-level and it even has a clock. It does not feel feature rich but gets the job done and looks good with the modern nature of the scooter. The digits are well-sized and are visible even under direct sunlight. The digital display is surrounded by tell-tale lights which looks pretty neat. The switchgear is also carried over from the Access 125 and the quality is decent according to scooter standards.
