2017 new Suzuki Burgman 400 ABS promo video SUZUKI LAUNCHES EXTENDED SMALL CAPACITY LINEUP IN MILAN Suzuki has further extended its small capacity model lineup for 2017, with four new machines unveiled today at Eicma, Milan, taking Suzuki’s total number of new models for the new year to 12. Following the announcement of Suzuki’s flagship GSX-R1000R at Intermot, Eicma saw the Japanese manufacturer strengthen its offerings in the small capacity sector of the market, with a new V-Strom 250, GSX-S125, GSX250R, and Burgman 400 joining the newly unveiled GSX-R125 in the brand’s expanding sub-400cc range.
NEW BURGMAN 400 Suzuki’s original Burgman 400 pioneered the launch of the maxi-scooter, combining comfort, practicality, and style, with ease of performance. It gained a reputation as a capable commuter and tourer, with plentiful storage capacity for trips into town and weekends away. For 2017, the new Burgman 400 gets a comprehensive restyling. The new face features sharp LED headlights with integrated LED position lights. A new upswept windscreen design optimises weather protection, a new stepped seat is 20mm thicker to improve rider and pillion comfort, while new grab rails and rear design completes the slimmer, sharper look. Underneath, the 399cc, single cylinder engine gets a fuel injection system with an O2 feedback system and newly designed catalyser. Increased frame rigidity improves cornering performance and stability, helped by slimmer, lighter bodywork. A lighter ABS unit saves 750g over the outgoing model. Handling performance is also enhanced with a new 15-inch front wheel that improves stability while still providing agile handling. 41mm telescopic front forks pair with a link-type monoshock rear suspension with seven-way adjustable preload, unique in the maxi-scooter class. Practicality comes from 42 litres of under-seat storage, while two compartments at the front provide a combined 6.3 litre storage space. There’s also a 12V DC outlet. A ‘chain lock gate’ allows riders to secure the Burgman 400 when parked by passing a chain through a gap in the bodywork and around the frame, before fastening to a ground anchor or other immovable object. The rear brake can also be locked on, and Suzuki’s Advanced Immobiliser System (SAIS) uses an electronic identification system in the owner’s key to prevent potential thieves from starting the engine. A magnetic cover that opens only for the owner’s key protects the ignition switch for added security. The 2017 Burgman 400 is set to appear in dealerships late in the spring.
