Rumour: Suzuki Burgman Street 125 bookings open

According to a media report, Suzuki dealerships have started accepting bookings for the upcoming Burgman Street 125 maxi-scooter for a token amount of Rs. 5,000.

Earlier this week, the Suzuki Burgman Street 125 was spotted in Gurgaon during an advertisement shoot. Spy images suggest that the styling will be inspired by the Burgman range of maxi-scooters, which includes the Burgman 200, the Burgman 400 and the Burgman 650. It gets a large front cowl with a sweptback headlamp and a windshield. The scooter appears to have a fairly flat seat with a single-piece grab handle, while the tail lamp gets arrow-shaped turn signals.

In India, the Burgman Street 125 is expected to be offered with a 124.3 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which produces 8.5 BHP @ 7,000 rpm and 10.2 Nm of torque @ 5,000 rpm. This is the same engine that powers the Access 125. The maxi-scooter is expected to come with a telescopic fork and monoshock suspension. It comes equipped with a single disc brake at the front and drum brakes at the rear. Combined Braking System (CBS) is likely to be offered as standard.

The Burgman Street 125 will compete with the Aprilia SR150 and TVS NTorq in the Indian market. There has been no word yet from Suzuki regarding the launch of this scooter.
