The scooter was spotted testing and looks almost ready to hit the road
Like most two-wheeler brands, Suzuki too has been working on its share of electric vehicles in India. The Burgman Electric has been spotted testing, again and it looks like the launch could be around the corner. So, what can one expect from the Japanese brand’s first e-scooter?
Same Design And Looks
It’s no secret that the Suzuki Burgman Electric will use the maxi-styled cladding, borrowed from its petrol-powered sibling. The long footboard, as well as the seat, seem to have enough room for the rider and the pillion to move around.
While the ICE Burgman gets a monoshock on the left, the spy shots show that the electric variant’s rear spring is mounted on the opposite side. This can probably be a result of the battery and motor position for the scooter.
