In India, 2022 is predicted to be the year of the electric two-wheeler. Suzuki is one of the brands that is actively developing electric scooters, much like many automakers. The new two-wheeler, which has lately been spotted testing once more, is rumored to be a fully electric variant of the Suzuki Burgman 125.
For the Indian market, the Japanese firm has been devoting time and money to the development of an electric two-wheeler. For more than a year, the business has been developing a prototype that might be the brand’s first electric scooter in the nation. One of Suzuki’s best-selling models is the Burgman Street 125, and its electric version’s most recent spy images of its electric version look quite similar to that of its conventional sister.
RushLane reports that auto enthusiast Saubhagya Vasdev released the most recent spy images, in which the test mule was entirely unmasked in contrast to earlier occurrences. The electric scooter is depicted in a spy photo with a dual-tone livery of blue and white, with the blue accents indicating that it has no tailpipe emissions. The most recent spy photos also demonstrate the existence of an exhaust canister.
Design of the Suzuki Burgman
Suzuki’s Burgman Street ungeared scooter will continue to feature the same style and aesthetics as the Suzuki Burgman. This will make it easier for customers to relate to the scooters that Suzuki is currently selling. The Suzuki Burgman is well-known for its aesthetics, and Suzuki plans to capitalize on this by releasing an electric version of the same scooter. The scooter will have a tail lamp, indicators, and headlamp made entirely of LEDs. Front and rear disc brakes will be installed on the scooter. With Bluetooth connectivity and a fully digital instrument cluster becoming common in electric scooters, these functions will also be available.
Additionally, rather than being positioned below the license plate, the reflector is now situated above it. A few other distinguishing characteristics of the electric scooter from Burgam Street have been brought over, including a comparable set of alloy wheels and a substantial grip rail for the passenger.
Swappable Batteries in the Suzuki Burgman
The Swappable Batteries Motorcycle Consortium (SBMC), founded by Piaggio, KTM, Honda, and Yamaha, aims to bring standardization to batteries and charging stations. Suzuki is anticipated to join this consortium as well and provide removable batteries that can be changed out for fully charged ones from the charging station. An electric scooter is efficient because of its removable battery. Instead of utilizing a long connection to connect the battery from the wall outlet in your home to the scooter in the parking lot, a removable battery makes it simple to charge and practical to carry. A full-face helmet should fit in the storage area with no problem.
Range of the Suzuki Burgman
Suzuki has used the slogan “High Mileage” to promote scooters like the Suzuki Access 125. Customers of two-wheelers had high expectations after the Simple One’s recent unveiling. They assert that the 438kWh battery in their scooters gives them a 236km range.
Suzuki should provide a larger and more effective battery in order to provide a respectable range of about 240 to 250km but it is rumored to have an electric range of roughly 80 to 90 kilometers on a single charge. Long range will draw buyers who are concerned about gas mileage to the Suzuki Burgman. For urban commuters looking for a high-performance scooter, go no further than the Suzuki Burgman Electric. It can go up to 135 kmph.
Price and Conclusion
Premium electric scooters cost more than Rs 1 lakh including the Ather 450X, Bajaj Chetak, and TVS iQube. Suzuki produces two-wheelers in large quantities and is already a trusted and well-known brand. By pricing the Burgman electric below Rs. 1 lakh, they can effortlessly undercut the competition. As soon as we learn anything new about the introduction of this new electric scooter from Suzuki, we’ll let you know.
