Suzuki Motorcycle India, which is currently seeing strong demand for its scooters particularly the Access, today launched the new 125cc Burgman Street EX, priced at Rs 112,300 (ex-showroom Delhi). This is the third variant in this scooter series after the Burgman Street and the Bluetooth-enabled Burgman Steet.

Compared to the existing Burgman Street variants, the EX gets a larger 12-inch rear wheel (in place of a 10-incher) with a wider 100/80-12 tyre, a silent starter system and an auto start/stop function. Suzuki has also equipped it with its new Suzuki Eco Performance Alpha (SEP-α), tech that's said to be an advanced version of Suzuki’s fuel-saving Eco Performance Technology.

There are also some minor differences in the dimensions and weight. The EX weighs 1kg more (at 111kg) and has a 25mm longer wheelbase but is 5mm narrower than the standard Burgman. 

The EX is continued to be powered by the same 124cc, 2-valve, single-cylinder engine that does duty in the rest of the Burgman Street range. However, the EX puts out 0.1hp less (8.6hp) at a slightly lower rpm while the torque is the same at 10Nm. 

In terms of features, the Burgman Street EX gets an LED headlight, a Bluetooth-enabled LCD and a USB charging socket. The new Burgman Street EX can be had in three colours – Platinum Silver, Bronze and Black.  

In terms of pricing, the new Burgman Street EX costs Rs 22,400 more than the standard Burgman and Rs 19,000 more than the Ride Connect version. As for rivals, the Burgman Street directly competes with the only other maxi-style scooter, the Aprilia SXR 125.

Suzuki Motorcycle India has sold a total of 434,966 two-wheelers in the first seven months of FY2023, up 24% year on year (April-October 2021: 351,657). This total comprises 420,238 scooters (up 24% / April-October 2021: 337,817 units) and 14,728 motorcycles (up 6% / April-October 2021: 13,840 units)
