Suzuki has launched the updated Burgman Street EX with a number of updates, including a bigger 12-inch rear wheel.
The new Suzuki Burgman Street EX has been launched in India at a price of ₹1.12 lakh (ex-showroom). The Burgman Street EX's engine fuel efficiency has been improved, thanks to the use of a more advanced version of Suzuki Eco Performance technology, which works in tandem with the new auto start-stop function. Furthermore, the new EX model retains the Suzuki Ride Connect feature, which permits the console to be paired with the rider's smartphone to offer features like turn-by-turn navigation and mobile communication alerts. The console works with both Android and iOS smartphones.
Thanks to the silent starter system, the all-new Burgman Street EX will be easy to operate, says the company. It works in conjunction with the engine auto stop/start (EASS) system to silently restart the powertrain as soon as the rider twists the throttle.
Suzuki has replaced the 10-inch rear wheel of the previous model with a larger 12-inch unit in the new model. According to the company, this will improve the scooter's stability and give it a more proportionate appearance. Speaking of the powertrain, the updated 125cc scooter will offer the same 8.5bhp and 10Nm as the standard model. The model will be available in three colour options – Metallic Matte Platinum Silver No. 2, Metallic Royal Bronze, and Metallic Matte Black No. 2.
Sharing his views on the launch, Mr Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director of Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd. stated, 'The love and affection that our Burgman Street got from Indian customers prompted us to launch the All-New Burgman Street EX in the country immediately after the global unveil. This is a special product from the house of Suzuki, which incorporates the latest technology and offers an unparalleled ride experience. By bringing in the unique exposure of Suzuki’s international Burgman heritage, we believe that the Burgman Street EX, the Special One will now be more special than ever and will herald a new era of luxury scooter riding in India'.
