Scooters don’t necessarily have to be boring, less powered or youth unfriendly. In fact, there are plenty of scooters that are going against the tide, Suzuki Burgman 125 is one of them. This power scooter has a striking design, bold color schemes and indeed, a powerful engine underneath. Suzuki Burgman 125 is a popular scooter with the Indian youth and even though it’s slightly overpriced, yet the performance and economic nature is winning many hearts.
Suzuki Burgman has a 125 cc engine providing 11.8 bhp at 9000 rpm. This is a pretty decent power output, even many regular shaped commuter motorbikes don’t pull off such an impressive figure. The maximum torque output on this engine is 10.8 Nm at 6500 rpm. Even though the design makes it male-centric, but having an automatic gearbox allows everyone with very little riding knowledge to get onto this scooter and get to their desired spot.
130 mm of ground clearance is suitable for bumpy roads, even larger potholes won’t be much of a problem. 159 is the kerb weight on this scooter. Handling is quite easy; difficult maneuvers in tight traffic wouldn’t be a prominent issue. 113 km/h is the top speed achieved in real life riding, for longer journeys this speed would be useful but it’s risky to ride a two wheeler at such a high speed. Capacity of the fuel tank is 10.5 liters, with an impressive high mileage this scooter shall not need frequent refueling.
The design is excellent. The edges and accent are pretty much like those found on the youth centric motorbikes from Suzuki like Gixxer or Hayate and they perfectly compliment Burgman 125. With two disk brakes, this upcoming scooter is certainly going to be a hot favorite among Indian youth.
Suzuki Burgman estimated price in ex-showrooms is Rs. 90,000.
