The rumours may turn out to be true at the biennial event with the launch of 150cc Burgman. Also, there is a chance that the manufacturer equips the Suzuki Burgman Street with the same engine that runs the popular Access 125.
Expected features on the upcoming Suzuki Burgman Street include LED tail lamp, front disc brake, a fully digital instrument cluster, a mobile charging point and a lot more. The suspension system of the Suzuki Burgman will likely comprise of conventional telescopic forks up front to offer good comfort and stability on harsh Indian roads. The seating on the Burgman is expected to be wide due to the fact that the said brand of scooters are particularly known for their comfort. Also, the new Suzuki Burgman should come with a windscreen and a bold looking apron to offer a distinct character when compared to rest of the mass market scooters available in the market. More features to be announced at Auto Expo 2018.
