Suzuki Burgman 125 Bike Overview
If your licence limits you to a 125cc bike, then the Suzuki Burgman 125 is a comfortable and practical choice which gives you plenty for a scooter of this calibre. It has been made for town and city riding and although it can handle speeds of up to 65mph fairly competently, the 125cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder engine does begin to show its limits if you take the Burgman 125 out onto the motorway. That being said, this bike has so much storage space that it’s the ideal commuters bike and although it appears to be heavy, weighing in at 156kg, it is surprisingly light and easy to handle whether you are turning sharp corners or cruising.
The main advantage of the Burgman 125 is the underseat storage; you can easily store a week’s shopping inside which makes it ideal for those who aren’t looking for a bike to take any lengthy jaunts out on the open road. There are also a number of other useful additions including a 12v power socket inside the glove box and cubby-hole on the dash for additional storage, should you need any. The large pillion seat is also incredibly comfortable and this scooter comes with the Suzuki name attached, meaning you can rest assured it has been well built.
New, these bikes cost around £3400 which isn’t the cheapest 125cc bike on the market but if you need a bike with decent storage without the need for additional panniers, and you only plan on riding it on city roads, then you’ll find the power more than suits your needs.

Adjustable rear suspension helps although being a maxi scooter it is heavy with smaller wheels thus does crash over some pot holes.
Lower down pull up to 20mph is weak at the CVT belt sorts itself out but after that it pulls well
The screen is without a doubt the worst thing about the bike, although fairly easy to improve.
No problems yet, not the best service interval at only 3500 miles.
Dual disc brakes up front and a single on the rear make sure even with its hefty weight it'll stop fast.
