Before you head off to Suzuki Motorcycle India’s website, it’s unlikely this maxi-scooter will ever make it here. Sad as that may be, we do get the 125cc Burgman Street. However, all similarities end there, if we can be honest. The Burgman 200, like the name suggests, comes packed with a 200cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that churns out a respectable 18 bhp. Suzuki claims the optimal amount of performance comes in at low- and mid-range revs, for better performance in and ‘around town’.
Furthermore, the Suzuki Burgman 200 comes with a CVT gearbox, 10.5-litre fuel tank, 735mm seat height and 41 litres of under-seat storage space. Other than that, it comes in three colours – Metallic Matte Stellar Blue, New Titan Black and Pearl Brilliant White. FYI, the colours are the only new addition to the 2022 model. I repeat, there are no other changes apart from that. There’s no denying the fact that the Burgman 200 is a more premium product, when compared to the Burgman Street we have here. The reason for that can be the fact that large capacity maxi-scooters haven’t really caught on in India.
Other hardware on the Burgman 200 includes 240mm front and rear disc brakes, 13-inch front and 12-inch rear wheel. It tips the weighing scale at 163 kilograms and comes with dual-channel ABS, as standard. The Burgman 200 features a split-headlight, large double-stitched seating, and a pretty large windscreen in terms of design. Interestingly enough, this isn’t the only Suzuki product to get an update recently. The Japanese also updated KingQuad and QuadSport Z50 ATVs along with the DR-Z400SM SuperMoto. As mentioned earlier, it’s highly unlikely any of these products will ever see our streets, but there’s no harm a bit of information, is there? Do you think maxi-scooters could make sense here?
