New Burgman 125/200 ABS
Suzuki launch new Burgman range over the weekend in Europe. The Burgman 200 should make it to Australia late in 2014.
Suzuki has used the final round of the World Endurance Championships to launch two key new models. The V-Strom 1000 cc adventure motorcycle which has been on drip feed for the past two years and the not so widely reported release of the new Burgman 125 and 200 with ABS. This is before the major launch that will happen at the upcoming Eicma show in Milan.
It's the scooters that interest us here at Scootersales.com.au. The Burgman features a liquid cooled, fuel injected engine and the option of ABS brakes. Key ergonomic features include a large front screen, comprehensive instrument cluster including economy indicator and a huge 41 litre underseat storage area.
The Burgman looks like it has everything needed to make it a solid commuter. In Europe, the Burgman range starts at 125 and ends with the mighty Burgman 650. See the full Suzuki presser below. (unedited)

The BURGMAN 200's liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, SOHC engine is tuned for optimal performance at the low and mid-range revs used most for commuting and touring the town. Smooth is what you feel. Quiet is what you hear. And power and fuel efficiency (30.1 km/litre) are what you have for enjoyable cruising on any city road.
The liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine delivers consistently strong performance in city traffic. Fuel injection system achieves superb combustion efficiency, results in smooth engine start, improved fuel efficiency and smooth power delivery.
Front and rear disc brakes, optional ABS
240mm front disc with 2-piston caliper and 240mm rear disc with single piston caliper provide efficient braking performance. Front and rear disc brakes with an optional Antilock Brake System (ABS). The system monitors wheel speed, and matches stopping power to available traction.
Chassis and suspension
A lightweight chassis with finely tuned suspension makes the BURGMAN easy to manoeuvre in city traffic and assures plush riding comfort.
A large windscreen helps keep you comfortable by shielding you from wind, insects, and road debris. Vent duct located at bottom of windscreen reduces wind turbulence and increase comfort.
Life with the BURGMAN is a four-letter word: EASY. Please, want for nothing. After all, you’ve got the space to carry a briefcase, a gym bag, or an extra helmet for a friend. Accept no compromises. The BURGMAN 200 is big enough to make its presence felt in rush-hour traffic and sleek enough to slip through an alley for a shortcut home.
Front compartments and 12V DC socket
Two front storage compartments provide 5.5-litre capacity, one is lockable with ignition key, another is push-open for easy access. The lower lockable storage bay has a 12V DC outlet* for charging electronic devices.
A capacious, 41-litre underseat storage compartment holds two full-face helmets. It incorporates a lamp for extra convenience at night.
To keep you fully informed, big analogue dials flank a digital display that shows a clock, an oil-change indicator, an Eco Drive indicator, and your average fuel consumption.
The Eco Drive indicator does not automatically improve fuel economy but may help riders refine their riding efficiency and improve fuel consumption. Fuel consumption may vary depending on conditions such as the frequency of starts from stop, distance driven, rate of acceleration (throttle use), chosen speed, and maintenance.
Ergonomics and equipment
Slim bodywork helps you drive city traffic. A low seat and cutaway floorboards help you put your feet on the ground with ease. Plus, a 10.5-litre fuel tank expands your riding range to all corners of the urban landscape. Hazard flasher lights boost convenience on urban roads.
A “P” range further enhances convenience by letting you park the BURGMAN with its position lights and tail lights illuminated.
