Suzuki Burgman 400 Sport Concept: The maddest, wildest, coolest scooter ever!


The Suzuki Burgman 400 Sport Concept. Cooler than an Eskimo supermodel prancing around in only her underpants in the middle of winter in Iceland...

Take an ordinary Suzuki scooter, with a 35bhp single-cylinder 400cc engine, continuously variable transmission and 200 kilo dry weight. Doesn’t sound like these may be the basic ingredients for the wildest scooter ever, eh?

And yet, beneath the fancy paintwork, that’s exactly what the Suzuki Burgman 400 Sport Concept is – a normal scooter with firmed-up and lowered suspension, uprated brakes, stickier tyres and GSX-R-style graphics. And we are absolutely, totally, completely, truly, deeply and madly in love with it. Sure, go ahead, laugh at us. We don’t care. We WANT this scooter. Please, Suzuki, do build this one. Please, please
