The slowdown in the Indian automotive sector has not stopped automakers from bringing in new models, innovative features and novel colour options to entice buyers back into showrooms.
Suzuki Burgman Street, currently offered in colour options of Metallic Matte Fibroin Grey, Glass Sparkle Black and Pearl Mirage White has now been introduced with a new colour of Matte Black. This Matte Black coloured model was spied at a company dealership and is slated to be officially launched later this month.
The Burgman Street 125 currently sells at Rs.70,878 and it is in this same price range that the new Matte Black color option is also expected to be priced. This new colour of the Burgman will celebrate the scooter’s completion of 1st year of sales in India. It will also mark sales crossing 90k mark
There will also be no change in specifications and the Burgman Street 125 will continue to sport the same features as seen on the other colour options. These include black rims, chrome finished rear view mirrors, LED head and tail lamps, a muffler cover, DC socket positioned inside the glove box and a USB charger for convenient charging.
2019 Suzuki Burgman Street also gets a fully digital multi function tachometer, front storage pocket, dual luggage hooks and 21.5 liter underseat storage with a fuel tank of 5.6 liter capacity. The scooter sits on tubeless tyres with black rims adding a sporty stance.
New Burgman Street 125 shares its engine with the Suzuki Access 125. It gets its power via a 124cc, 4 stroke, single cylinder, air cooled engine offering 8.7 PS power at 7,000 rpm and 10.2 Nm torque at 5,000 rpm mated to a CVT while it also receives a carburetor fuel system. Suspension is via telescopic front fork and hydraulic set up at the rear. Braking is via disc brake in the front and drum brake at the rear.
The new colour option is expected to enhance sales of the company, which unlike a host of other automakers has registered sales increase of 33.4 percent in the past financial year. The Burgman Street, often criticized for its design, has been managing decent sales in India, averaging about 7,768 units a month. The Burgman Street competes with the Honda Grazia, Aprilia SR125, TVS Ntorq and Hero Maestro Edge.
