Suzuki Avenis 125, a sportier alternative to Burgman Street, was launched by Suzuki Motorcycle and Scooter India early this year. The scooter’s sales have surpassed the motorcycle’s just a few months after their launch.
During June, Suzuki sold 9,284 units of the Avenis 125, a slight increase from the 8,922 units sold in May. According to Burgman Street, 8,793 units were sold last month. It is also a decrease from the 12,990 units sold in May. In spite of that, the Suzuki Avenis continues to lag behind TVS’s Ntorq 125, which sold 22,741 units last month.
Burgman Street and the Avenis share most of their components and hardware. As well as being based on the same platform, they are powered by the same 124cc, single-cylinder engine producing 8.58bhp and 10Nm, coupled to a CVT transmission.
Despite this, Burgman Street is inspired by maxi-scooters, whereas the Avenis has a sporty look. There are also minutely differences between the two scooters, in terms of pricing. There is a price range from Rs 88,900 to Rs 92,800 for Burgman Street, and from Rs 87,500 to Rs 89,000 for the Avenis (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
