The scooter has a wide stance and wider seating arrangement confirms a comfortable ride for both rider and pillion. Features such as LED headlamps, body mount windscreen, flexible outstretched foot position and front disc brake will be offered as standard.
The scooter packs a 12V charging socket, tubeless tires, fully digital instrument cluster and a multi-function key slot. It also gets front storage compartment will have a 7-litres capacity and a fuel tank of 10.5 litres.
Burgman Street 125 will draw power from a 125cc mill. The mill in question is expected to be the one currently does duty in the Suzuki Access. It produces 8.6hp at 6,500 rpm and 10.2Nm at 5,000rpm. The maxi-scooter will be employed with a telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear. The scooter will run on a 90/90-12 tire at the front and a 90/100-10 one at the rear.
