Engine Features

Even when riding with a passenger, the 399cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, DOHC, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine provides excellent low- to mid-range torque with solid peak performance. The DOHC four-valve design of the engine provides for optimal intake and exhaust valve placement, resulting in better mechanical advantages and efficient combustion. Smooth, instantaneous acceleration is one of the advantages. The Suzuki 2020 Burgman 400 Scooter’s lighter weight allows the highly efficient engine, which uses a long-life iridium spark plug, to enhance fuel efficiency and expand the riding range of the large 3.6-gallon fuel tank.

The Burgman’s fuel economy is improved thanks to a revised Suzuki fuel-injection system with O2 feedback, as well as the Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) system and a catalyzer-equipped exhaust. In stop-and-go traffic, the high-capacity five-liter air cleaner improves throttle response and boosts acceleration. It’s hidden under the seat and has been engineered to provide a thrilling intake sound. The Automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) system maintains a constant engine idle speed. The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) delivers smooth, linear power for enjoyable riding at any pace.

Chassis Features

The Suzuki 2020 Burgman 400 Scooter’s underbone structure is made out of large-diameter, thin-wall tubes that are light and stiff, resulting in better handling. The telescopic front fork with 41mm inner tubes has 4.3 inches of wheel travel. It works in tandem with the link-type mono-shock rear suspension to provide motorcycle-like handling and agility.

To increase stability and aesthetics, a big 15-inch front wheel replaces the 14-inch wheel on the previous model scooter. For dependable stopping control, the cast front wheel features a pair of 260mm of disc brake rotors, while the 13 inches rear-wheel has a 210mm hydraulic disc brake. The standard Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) keeps track of wheel speed and adjusts braking force to meet available traction. The new ABS control unit is 1.6 pounds lighter than the previous model.

When the parking brake is engaged, an easy-to-operate T-handle parking brake lever is placed on the dash near the ignition switch to avoid rear wheel movement. The upswept windshield looks good from every angle while providing excellent wind protection and a great view of the road. The Burgman 400’s luxury performance is reflected in the bodywork. The scooter’s personality is matched by its sleek, athletic, and elegant appearance. Sharply designed twin LED headlights with integrated LED position lights and turn signals are placed under the scooter’s snout. The Suzuki Burgman’s sleek and bright front appearance is immediately recognized.

The Burgman 400’s thin rear deck has separate LED rear combination lights with turn signals at their tips. Its elegant and agile design is carved to perfection. A 42-liter under-seat storage box, big enough for two helmets, as well as two front compartments for minor personal things, provides enough baggage room. Under-seat lights that can be switched on and off illuminate the whole storage space.- Because helmets come in various sizes and forms, some may not fit in the under-seat compartment. The front bodywork has two storage compartments: one on the left with a 2.8-liter capacity and one on the right with a 3.5-liter capacity and a handy DC power plug for charging electronic gadgets on the go.

The substantial padding on the tiered dual seat adds to the comfort. The breadth and shape of the seat are narrow to provide comfort for both the rider and the passenger. To add to the appearance of luxury, the cover has double stitching and accent piping. The seat has a rider’s backrest that can be adjusted by a half-inch or inch fore-and-aft at the touch of a lever to improve comfort, particularly on extended journeys. The combination of seat adjustments and floorboard position results in a comfortable and sporty riding posture for the rider. Cutaway footboards enable the user to maneuver and support the scooter more easily during stops and starts.

Comfort is provided with fold-down rear footrests, allowing the passenger to feel grounded and comfortable even on longer journeys. The passenger has a robust and comfortable hold on the scooter thanks to a pair of ergonomically designed grab bars attached to the sides of the seat. A chain lock may be run through a body panel, around the frame, and finally around an immovable object thanks to a security gate built into the bottom part of the bodywork.

Other colored provides turn signal, headlight, freeze, and service function warnings LED indicators.
