Here’s what Suzuki says about the new Burgman 400:

While a solid seller in a relatively stable scooter market, Suzuki felt the Burgman 400 was due for a major update. In line with current trends, the newly updated model features a coupe-like slim and light body with enhanced sporty styling. With its lighter and more compact package, it raises convenience and performance specifications to a new level while maintaining its highly regarded reputation for luxury, quality, comfort and running performance. The result is a more desirable Burgman 400 that is lighter and more stylish, and that delivers more powerful torque at low to midrange rpms, all while complying with the stringent Euro 4 emissions regulations.

The update to the Burgman 400 aims to carry over key features that made the model popular through the years, while further slimming down the design and further improving the handling and performance to deliver a sportier, more compact luxury scooter that manoeuvres brilliantly and delivers a winning combination of stylish design, practicality and convenience.
