The instrument cluster has been given a more practical makeover, with updated gauges that display helpful information like the rider’s current fuel usage and remaining range.
The Burgman’s 400cc engine is powerful and quick, and it now meets global emissions requirements thanks to a redesigned camshaft profile and a new dual-spark technology ignition system. A rider-selectable Traction Control system, similar to that found on the Suzuki V-Strom 650 and GSX-S750, is now standard on the Burgman, providing the rider with more confidence and superior road-holding performance over a wide range of road conditions.

Whether using the Burgman for commuting, open-road touring, or carrying a passenger; you can count on its consistent performance. Due to the DOHC four-valve layout, the intake and exhaust valves may be placed in optimal locations for maximum mechanical efficiency and combustion. The advantages manifest as quick, effortless acceleration. A pair of long-lasting iridium spark plugs ignite at precisely timed intervals to maximize combustion efficiency, according to Suzuki’s Dual Spark technology. To assist the Burgman 400 meet international pollution requirements, the camshaft timing has been updated to decrease valve overlap, which increases combustion efficiency.
The new 10-hole fuel injector produces a more concentrated fuel spray, which improves efficiency by mixing more thoroughly with the incoming air. The Burgman’s fuel economy is enhanced by the sophisticated Suzuki EFI system, which regulates the Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) system and gets O2 input from the catalyzer-equipped exhaust. The exhaust catalyzer is an innovative new design; its honeycomb-like interior and particular metal catalyst carrier significantly increase the purification capacity of the outgoing exhaust. Throttle responsiveness and acceleration are improved by the high-capacity air cleaner, which is especially useful in heavy traffic.

The Engine Control Module (ECM) has been upgraded so that the brand-new Traction Control system, in addition to Easy Start and Automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC), can function quickly and efficiently. Even after a cold start, the Automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) technology maintains the ideal engine idle. Continuous variable transmission (CVT) is entirely automated and delivers power smoothly and uniformly at any speed.
The undergone frame of the 2022 Burgman 400 Suzuki Scooter is made of lightweight, large-diameter thin-wall tubes with high stiffness, which enhances handling. With a substantial 4.3 inches of wheel travel, the telescopic front fork with 41mm inner tubes complements the motorcycle-like handling and outstanding agility of the link-type, mono-shock rear suspension. To improve stability and aesthetics, a giant 15-inch front wheel replaces the 14-inch wheel of the scooter’s predecessor. To provide dependable stopping control, the cast front wheel is equipped with two 260mm disc brake rotors, while the 13-inch rear wheel features a 210mm hydraulic disc brake. On the dashboard, next to the ignition switch, is a parking brake lever with a T-handle that, when used, stops the back wheels from turning. The upswept windshield provides the best possible wind protection and a clear road view while maintaining a tidy look.
The Burgman 400’s sleek and athletic bodywork complements the scooter’s elegant nature. Sharply-shaped twin LED headlamps with integrated LED position lights and turn signals are positioned under the scooter’s snout.

Under-seat switches for convenience lighting illuminate the whole storage space. Because helmet forms and sizes differ, certain helmets may not work in the under-seat storage space. The front bodywork has two storage spaces: a 2.8-liter area on the left and a 3.5-liter one on the right; the latter has a handy DC power plug for quick charging electronic devices. For added comfort, the stepped dual seat includes new 3.1-inch (78.5 mm) thick cushioning. The seat’s narrow width and design increase rider and passenger comfort.
The Burgman now has a new seat cover that is blue with double stitching and accent piping. The seat has a rider’s backrest that can be moved fore-and-aft by a half-inch or a full inch by pulling a lever to boost comfort, particularly on long journeys. The floorboard position and seat adjustments offer a comfortable and sporty upright riding posture for the rider. Cutaway footboards make it possible for the user to maneuver and support the scooter with ease during stops and starts. Even during lengthy travels, the passenger may feel secure and at ease thanks to the fold-down rear footrests. To help the passenger retain a secure grasp on the scooter, two ergonomic grab bars are placed on the sides of the seat. An immovable item may be wrapped with a chain lock by passing it through a body panel, around the frame, and through security, the gate built into the bottom part of the bodywork. A magnetic security cover that protects the ignition switch is installed, and it can only be opened with the correct key.
Rider Aid Features
The 2022 Burgman 400 Suzuki Scooter’s innovative Traction Control technology minimizes wheel spin on slick or uneven road conditions to preserve efficient forward motion. It prevents slippage when departing from a standstill with the throttle completely open. Traction control provides the rider with peace of mind and exceptional road-holding abilities, whether traveling on wet asphalt or cobblestone streets. A switch on the right handlebar allows you to turn the system on and off. The rider is informed that the traction control system is engaged via a prominently situated icon on the instrument cluster. When the vehicle starts up, a traction control (TC) LED icon on the speedometer glows as a check sign and flashes if the system is preventing rear wheel spin while the vehicle is in motion.
The Burgman may be started fast and simply with the Suzuki Easy Start System by briefly pressing the starting button (a brake must be applied for the starter to function). An even more practical design has been revised for the analog/LCD screen Instrument Cluster. A digital display with an odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, average fuel usage meter, ambient temperature indicator, and the clock is surrounded by the large, easy-to-read analog speedometer and tachometer dials. The user can more easily save gasoline thanks to the centrally situated LCD monitor, which shows the riding range and immediate fuel usage. When the Burgman is driven economically, the Eco-Drive Indicator+ on the tachometer lights, which may teach riders how to save gasoline better. At a certain distance, an LED service indication prompts the rider to complete routine maintenance.
The tachometer face’s LED freeze indicator warns the rider that icy conditions may be present. The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), which is standard, keeps track of wheel speed and adjusts stopping power to the amount of traction. Compared to the one used in the 2021 Burgman 400, the new, compact ABS control unit weighs 0.8 pounds (36 g) less. Upon starting the scooter, the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) LED at the instrument cluster glows as a check sign and flashes if the system prevents brake lock-up while the scooter is in motion.
Styled Suzuki “S” 3D emblems on the top meter panel and the front leg shield signify the brand’s superiority and refinement. Burgman owners may choose from a wide range of Genuine Suzuki Accessories, including a top case, a larger windshield, and a choice of clothing with the Suzuki brand. Limited warranty for 12 months.
