Electric two-wheelers are everywhere. Their acceptance is more widespread than that of four-wheelers. Come to think of it. Suzuki doesn’t have a single electric four-wheeler in India but is readying a two-wheeler. The Suzuki Burgman electric has been spotted testing. Earlier Suzuki bosses had confirmed that if there is a market for it, they will launch an electric scooter. The tentative timeline may have been affected a bit due to the pandemic but it is very much on track. We saw a Suzuki Burgman electric testing in North India. The scooter looks very much like the petrol Burgman but if you notice closely, the paint scheme as well as absence of a silencer are the giveaways. The name of the scooter has been taped to not reveal its identity. A rear tyre hugger is also the new bit here.
Specifics of the Suzuki Burgman electric, features
The scooter will have a revised rear fender. There are also dual shock absorbers on offer. Like the regular scooter, even this one will have a fully-digital instrument console complete with Bluetooth connectivity. There will be additional storage spaces in the front as well as a USB charger under the seat. Charging port of the scooter could be near the front apron.
If you ask us about the powertrain, it will likely a Li-ion swappable unit. This unit could make around 7hp power and 64Nm. A range of 120km can be easily expected whereas the top speed could be limited to 70kmph. The charging time could be five hours. Whether or not a fast charging option will be provided is something that is unclear at the moment.
