While it might not have hit India yet, there is a whole culture revolving around maxi scooters. But that might all change very soon as Suzuki has brought the Burgman name to India. For the uninitiated, it is their range of scooters that are meant for cruising on endless roads. While they can be as big as 400-650cc, in India we have been introduced to a much smaller 125cc model called the Burgman Street. So we explore this new horizon by riding the Burgman Street.


Just when you think that you have seen it all, something different like the Burgman Street arrives on the scene. This is a bulky and broad looking scooter that can be truly called as a muscular being with aggressive lines running through its skin. The front of the Burgman Street does catch your eyes with its aggressive designing. The apron houses a wide LED headlamp cluster in the middle which is flanked by turn indicators. At the top is a windscreen that does a good job of saving you from some of the windblast, especially when you duck in. There is a decent amount of chrome that is fit in subtly. Additionally you can even get chrome finish for the rear view mirrors. The 21.5L of under seat storage is plenty spacious for most helmet sizes. There are two pockets at the front. The one on the right can easily accommodate a small water bottle and is quite deep. The one on the left has a lid to cover it and also has a 12V charging socket. You can get a USB option for it as an accessory and there is enough space inside to keep large size phones.
