Ahead of its introduction in the market, the Suzuki Burgman electric scooter has been spied yet again, this time up close. The spy pics from Rushlane, showcases the Burgman electric scooter without any camouflage and carrying the same styling as its IC-engine powered version.
However, there are a few differences which help differentiate between the standard and the electric version. The first difference is the dual-tone paint scheme. The new electric Burgman scooter can be seen with blue highlights on the lower parts of the side panel and near the front handlebars.
Another difference is the obvious absence of the exhaust pipes. The scooter also comes with a dual shock absorber now, to be able to handle the extra weight from the lithium-ion battery packs.
Apart from the above-mentioned differences, the prototype version of the Suzuki Burgman electric scooter seems to carry forward all the features and elements from the standard model.
This includes the LED headlamps, the LED tail lights, the full-digital instrument cluster which will be offered with smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth. The scooter will also feature the same set of tubeless tyres, while also getting stylish alloy wheels as well.
What is unknown at this point, however, is the powertrain on the electric scooter. While we do expect the Suzuki Burgman electric to be powered by a lithium-ion battery pack mated to an electric motor, the company is yet to confirm the power ratings.
The electric scooter could be offered with a similar power rating as its competitors in the segment. This also includes a similar range of around 90km on a single charge. Top speed on the electric scooter could be in the range of 80km/h. The new Burgman electric will also feature a charging time of around 3 to 4 hours.
