Suzuki India have been very consistent in their vehicle launches which reflects in their sales too. This time it’s Suzuki Burgman Street 125. However not launched but spied in Gurgaon, Golf Course road during TVC shoot, it hints for the official launch quite soon. A 125cc scooter from Suzuki to compete against the likes of Honda Grazia, TVS Ntorq and also the predecessor Suzuki Access 125. Although it’s not a new face, as it was showcased in 2018 Auto Expo.
Though the Access 125 itself gave the competitors the run for their money, it was based on traditional styling and felt outdated when compared with Ntorq or Grazia in particular. So, now Burgman Street will be ready to take things in own hands.
On the styling front, I will keep it this way “a scooter version of Suzuki Intruder 150”, this was the first thing that came to my mind when I first saw it. It gets a big static headlight inspired from Honda Dio. It is LED though. Other unique feature is the attached wind deflector to the body. The Burgman Street gets a Suzuki Intruder inspired digital instrument cluster which is common in Gixxer, Gixxer SF and Intruder150. The tail lamps will be LED too.

As seen in the picture, it gets black alloy wheels (12 inches front and 10 inches rear) with 5 spokes. The tyres expected to be tubeless in nature. A disc in front and drum at rear will handle the braking department. It gets a telescopic front and hydraulic rear suspension.
The overall length of the scooter is 1884 mm with wheel base of 1226mm. Ground clearance is 160 mm which I guess is sufficient for Indian road conditions. The fuel capacity is 5.6 liters and can expect a mileage 50 kmpl (depending on riding conditions).
Let’s come to the heart of the scooter, the engine. It’s a 124.3cc, single cylinder, 4 stroke engine with max power of 8.7PS at 7000rpm mated to a CVT transmission. Although in my words the peak power coming at very late but the reality can be said only after riding it.
The scooter looks pretty promising, however it all comes to how the company prices it. Although Suzuki India is known for aggressive pricing, if priced anywhere around 60,000 mark, it will give a tough competition to TVS Ntorq which has become the favourite of masses.
