New Burgman 650 provides impressive technical advances

Posted: 02 Oct 2012

In addition to the new Hayabusa, Suzuki unveiled a new Burgman 650 at Intermot today – seemingly proving that good things really do come in small packages…

The Burgman, which has been restyled, features a new Eco Drive Indicator to encourage riding that may reduce environmental impacts and help riders learn techniques to improve fuel economy – and therefore cost effectiveness. However, performance of the liquid-cooled engine has not been compromised.

Technological updates are packed into the small machine with computerised fuel injection and a Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) system. An O2 feedback system with catalyser boosts fuel efficiency and minimises emissions, while the Suzuki Electronically-controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (SECVT) allows the rider to choose three riding modes by just toggling buttons on the handlebars.

The technology continues with the Suzuki Advanced Immobilizer System (SAIS), which uses an electronic identification system in the owner’s key to prevent unauthorised people from starting the engine. ABS is included as are heated grips and a heated seat for added comfort during winter rides.
