Hey, fellow riders! How’s it going? Speaking of news, there’s some exciting stuff from the motorcycle world, especially for those who are crazy about eco-friendly technology. Suzuki, the tireless innovator, is dropping a cool hint. Word on the street is, that in 2024, we’ll be greeted with the Suzuki e-Burgman electric motorcycle!
So, here’s the scoop: it all started with its close relative, the Suzuki Burgman 125, which hit the roads with its gasoline version in the Southeast Asian market. Then, with a determined face, Suzuki revealed that they were dead serious about electric motorcycles. By the way, they’ve already introduced a concept electric bike called e-Burgman. Plug-in, my friend! Pretty fancy, huh?
Here’s the lowdown. This e-Burgman is set to be Suzuki’s electric champion. And who’s pointing the finger to rev up this e-Burgman onto the market? It’s Akira Kyuji, the General Manager for Motorcycle Sales at Suzuki. If you call him an electric motorcycle warrior, it might be an understatement. Just imagine, he convinced us that Suzuki is going to spend a whopping 242 trillion rupiahs on electric motorcycle research. Wow, what could that money be used for? Maybe buying a few million cats or even building their toll road in the backyard.
In an interview with Motorcycle News in England, Kyuji-san – his friendly nickname – exudes optimism that can lift us all. He says, “Unless something drastically changes in the future, the alternative fuel vehicle development plans align with ours.” In short, Suzuki is ready to join the electric lane!
Now, when we talk about electric motorcycles, thoughts about the future pop up, right? True. Suzuki isn’t fooling around with electric vehicles (EVs). They, along with their car division, plan to roll out up to 8 EV models by 2030. So, from now on, we better be ready. We might see sleek and super advanced Suzuki cars on the road. If you do, don’t forget to wave, okay?
Oh, but before we start imagining that bright future, let’s dive back into the e-Burgman. This electric motorcycle is based on the popular Burgman 125. So, you can imagine a design that’s already a hit combined with modern electric technology. What kind of motorcycle will it be? It’s going to be fascinating to find out!
Oh, and the uniqueness of this e-Burgman is also in its plug-in system. If plug-in used to be just a term in hipster coffee shops, now it’s a reality on motorcycles. Super practical, right? No hassle finding electric charging stations, just plug it in! Can you already picture eagerly awaiting the e-Burgman in your garage?
Then, the coolest part of all this is Akira Kyuji casually dropping the bombshell, like telling a story about eating meatball soup by the roadside. He says, “Suzuki spent a massive amount on research.” Massive, bro! Up to 242 trillion rupiahs. People might say it’s better to use that much money for a vacation to exotic islands. But oh well, maybe for a green future, this electric motorcycle research is necessary.
So, what do you think? Isn’t the info about the Suzuki e-Burgman 2024 exciting? Can’t wait to see it cruising on the streets. It might become the new idol for those who love an eco-friendly lifestyle. Oh, and if Suzuki is serious about going green, it looks like we all need to be ready to follow the trend. Who knows, soon we might all become cool electric riders, not to mention fuel-efficient. Let’s wait for the e-Burgman to show up and bring more life to our streets!
