Suzuki just sent over these exclusive shots of a concept it had knocked up by its R&D department to evaluate interest in a sports scooter based on the Burgman 400. On looks alone, our interest is already high.

Over the standard Burgman, the Sport Concept receives GSX-R-inspired paint, mirrors and exhaust; a different upper tail piece that houses the brake light; a cut-down screen and front fender; wavy brakes and a smoother seat. All of the above combine to great effect, turning an ugly duckling into a handsome, appealing, mature take on the custom maxi-scooter theme.

The paint is possibly the most successful part of the scooter. It’s obviously been applied by someone with a real understanding of and appreciation for the Burgman’s lines. Note the way solid colors are combined to individual panels instead of randomly chosen lines; the piano black cockpit panels that accentuate the external shape and the GSX-R style “B” for Burgman.

If Suzuki can combine these looks with pulley ratios altered for greater acceleration, stickier tires and firmer suspension, we couldn’t think of a scooter we’d rather ride. The sport concept was shown to an enthusiastic audience at the company’s dealer show in Las Vegas. Should both dealers and consumers express a great enough interest, we think it stands a chance at production.
