The BS6 Suzuki Burgman Street gets a new paint scheme, fuel-injection system and an engine start/kill switch over the previous model and sees nearly Rs 7000 hike in price.
Suzuki Motorcycle India has launched the BS6 compliant version of the Burgman Street 125 for a price of Rs 77,900. With the BS6 update, the Suzuki Burgman Street sees a hike in price by nearly Rs 7000. However, it also gets some added features for that extra money which includes fuel-injection as well as integrated engine start and kill switch to reduce emissions on the updated model.
The BS6 Suzuki Burgman Street continues to be powered by a 125 cc single-cylinder fuel-injected motor that comes with Suzuki Eco Performance technology and develops 8.5 bhp at 6750 rpm and 10 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm. The power figures are only marginally lower than the BS4 model.
Commenting on the launch Koichiro Hirao, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India said, “Suzuki Motorcycle India is a pioneer in 125cc scooter segment in India and we have also successfully created a new category of advanced premium riding by introducing Burgman Street in the country. Today, we are delighted to offer this premium scooter with BS6 engine along with Fuel Injection technology to make it even more enjoyable. We are confident that the upgraded Burgman Street with BS6 will add a zing to an overall riding experience for our customers.”
There are some cosmetic changes on the scooter as well. The new scooter gets new chrome accents on the front and rear panels, while familiar bits like the body-mounted windscreen and upward muffler design have been carried over. The Burgman Street now also gets a new Metallic Matte Bordeaux Red colour that also made an appearance on the Access 125 BS6.
The BS6 Suzuki Burgman Street is thus now available in four colour schemes – Metallic Matte Fibroin Gray, Pearl Mirage White, Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and new Metallic Matte Bordeaux Red. Interestingly, this new color for the Burgman Street was also displayed at the 2020 Auto Expo. Suzuki also showcased the Burgman Street with a rather cool MotoGP livery at the 2020 Auto Expo as well but that was only a one-off.
