 The mileage is best in class. The Burgman returns around 50 kmpl in the city. The scooter keeps itself moving in traffic. Overtaking slow vehicles smoothly. While cruising at 80 kmph, the Burgmna street returns around 45 kmpl. Compared to Ntorq 125, this is a good mileage figure. 

 How quick is the Suzuki Burgman Street for your daily commuting needs?

The engine is so smooth and silent that you can barely hear its roar while cruising on the streets. Even going to the 70 to 80 kmph mark, the scooter doesn’t feel strained and returns a strange outcome. The CVT is very smooth and doesn't reveal any sign of lag in both city or highway ride conditions.

Acceleration is quick with Burgman street and the rivals lag behind by slight margin. The top speed is claimed at 93 kmph.  While riding, you’ll never hear a single noise coming out of any part. The parts are assembled in a very well-designed manner. 

 How sure-footed are the brakes?

The 10-inch rear-wheel wheels appear to be discouraging to lots of buyers at first sight. The brake response is good all together with front disc brakes and rear drum brakes. But, still, the brake bite from the front disc brakes could be better.

 The competitors, in fact, offer better braking dynamics. The Ntorq is good at both braking and ride balance. 

How comfortably are you seated while traversing the roads?

Burgman Street is a practical, refined and stylish scooter in its segment. The ample legroom makes you spread legs with good command. The scooter also gets two hooks for utility.  Also, with a pillion rider, the scooter returns balanced ride quality. The only disappointing factor is the small rear wheels size. The rear wheel should have a bigger size so that it could absorb small bumps on uneven roads.

The left apron for storage should have been lockable so that you could lock your belongings like wallet or phone while commuting to work. Keeping valuable things in the open area is prone to any damage anytime. 

How subtle looking is the 2020 Suzuki Burgman Street?

The Burgman Street styling is completely out of the box.No scooter in this segment offers such aggressive styling. The body quality is far better than rivals like Honda Grazia and TVS Ntorq. The front gets LED headlamps along with luxurious position lights, giving the front fascia a unique texture. The rear too gets LEd combination lights that take up a wide area to lighten up the rear part.

 The rear 10-inch wheels look small, but at the same time liberated more space for storage under the seat. The maxi-scooter like styling is pleasing to eyes adding more convenient features that can be used in daily life. From the side, the Burgman looks sporty all because of silver and black panels with sharp creases. It might not be the coolest scooter, but it does turn heads on the street. The only thing that we dislike about the Burgman is its big body and small wheels. This totally disrupts its proportions. 

 What are the various safety and class-leading features?

The Burgman Street features a windshield in the front along with a fully digital instrument console. The front disc brakes work smoothly in conjunction with the combined braking system. It gets LED headlamps in the front that deliver good light in dark.

How does the competition stack up against Suzuki Burgman Street?

Suzuki Burgman Street VS TVS Ntorq 125

Both the Burgman Street and Ntorq 125 scooters offer the best features to lure masses. The Ntorq is more advanced in features with the Bluetooth-enabled connectivity while the Burgman is best in the utility section. However, if going towards the best value for money proposition, the Ntorq 125 is a clear winner here and it is around Rs. 8000 cheaper than the Suzuki Burgman Street. 

Suzuki Burgman Street  VS Honda Grazia

 

The Grazia comes with bold colours and turns out to be reasonably aggressive in looks. The scooter looks more like a facelifted Dio and that’s not a bad thing. The LED headlight is designed with sharp edges, giving it a sleek look. The Grazia also features a fully digital instrument cluster with an rpm gauge. Honda Grazia is the only scooter to offer rpm gauge. With such an offering, the Grazia surely offers a modern design and offers good mileage as well. The Grazia missies on some basic utility features. Suzuki Burgman Street can be a better deal to get in. 

Does the Suzuki Burgman Street stand a chance against the segment leaders?

Suzuki Burgman Street is not a bad deal to catch in when you have heavily tech loaded 125 cc scooters like TVS Ntorq 125. The Ntorq appears to be a compromised scooter with limited legroom and plastic quality while the Burgman Street turns out to be a game-changer. With a refined and fuel-efficient engine, Burgman Street is definitely worth every penny.
