Suzuki Burgman-based electric scooter spied

The Burgman electric scooter could rival the Bajaj Chetak.

A prototype of a Suzuki Burgman Street based electric scooter has been caught testing.

At first glance, it looks like a regular Burgman Street as the body work is similar to the petrol-powered scooter. However, it does not have the side-mounted exhaust – a telltale sign of an electric scooter. The front suspension is also different. The shock absorber is positioned on the right side, whereas on the petrol version, it is on the left side of the wheel.

Specifications of the electric motor and the battery are not yet known. However, given the fact that it will compete with the likes of the Ather 450, TVS iQube and Bajaj Chetak, we can expect similar levels of performance.

At present, the Burgman Street is offered with a 124cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 8.6 BHP @ 6,750 rpm and 10 Nm @ 5,500 rpm. It was recently updated with new features including turn-by-turn navigation, overspeed warning and last parked location.
