The Suzuki Burgman Street BS6 was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 and now the scooter has been launched in India. The Suzuki Burgman Street BS6 price in India is Rs 77,900, ex-showroom. This price is Rs 7,000 over that of the BS4 model. Retail sales have started and the BS6 models have started reaching dealerships.
Apart from engine, anything new in the Suzuki Burgman Street BS6?
Suzuki have added an integrated engine kill switch with the Burgman Street now. This could be on the same lines as the ones we have seen on the Honda Activa 125. At the same time, a new red paint scheme also has been introduced. It’s strange that the MotoGP colors versions showcased at the expo has been given a miss as of now. A fuel injector is now being used with the 125cc engine. While power stays put at 8.7PS, the torque has gone down slightly from the earlier 10.2Nm now to 10Nm. It is highly likely that efficiency has gone up in the process but Suzuki is tight-lipped on the same. The kerb weight has increased by 2kg but then the Burgman Street was one of the lightest scooters in its class and this shouldn’t have affected performance much.
The Suzuki Burgman Street BS6 boasts an all-digital instrument console and one that now also has the fuel injection indicator. At the same time, the LED headlights as well as tail lamps continue. We have loved those headlights as they provide for a very effective beam at night. There is a disc brake on the front and drum at the rear. These are linked by CBS. Telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear handle the suspension responsibilities. The underseat storage is a good 21.7 litres too.
The Suzuki Burgman Street BS6 will go on to compete with the Hero Destini 125, Honda Activa 125 as well as the TVS NTorq 125. As of now, only the latter is yet to be updated to meet BS6 norms but we expect it to happen in a week or two.
