2012 Suzuki Burgman 400 ABS Key Features

400cm3, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, DOHC, fuel-injected engine for polished performance.

DOHC valve arrangement allows optimal positioning of the inlet and exhaust valves for better mechanical smoothness and more efficient combustion. The benefits can be felt in smooth, instantly available acceleration. And thanks to a 14-litre fuel tank, they can be enjoyed over long distances between fuel stops.

A large exhaust catalyzer is promoted by an O2-feedback system with fuel-injection arrangement.

Idle Speed Control (ISC) system ensures optimal idling under various conditions.
14-inch front wheel carries 260mm hydraulic dual disc brake, and rear wheel has a 210mm hydraulic disc brake for reliable control.

Easy-to-operate lever in the front bodywork can be conveniently used to apply a lock system that acts on the rear brake when parked.

Lightweight and high rigidity underbone frame is built from large-diameter, thin-wall tubes.

Telescopic 41mm inner-tube front forks with a generous 110mm of wheel travel, and motorcycle-style link-type monoshock absorber rear suspension has adjustable preload. The overall benefits are motorcycle levels of handling and exceptional maneuverability.

Abundant luggage space; huge 62-litre storage bay, large enough for two normal size full-face helmets or A3-size document case, and a smaller compartment for small personal items. Convenient swichable underseat lights to illuminate entire underseat area.

Front bodywork contains three lidded storage compartments; a large 10-litre compartment with a convenient DC power outlet for charging electric devices in the move and two smaller compartments above it.

Stepped dual seat for comfort and confidence. The rider’s backrest is adjustable in five 10mm increments at the press of a lever.

Cut-away footboards allow stop-start legwork without uncomfortable stretching.

Ignition switch has a tamper-resisting magnetic cover and incorporates Suzuki Advanced Immobilizer System (SAIS), a transponder-type transistorized digital computer-controlled immobilizer.

Security gate allows a chain lock to be passed through the bodywork around the frame and then around an immovable object.

The comprehensive and easy-to-read instrument binnacle incorporates a speedometer, a tachometer, an odometer, twin tripmeters, a clock, and indicators for the ambient temperature, average fuel consumption, fuel level, and coolant temperature.

Ignition switch fitted with a magnetic cover that opens only with correctly coded key for security.

Antilock Brake System (ABS*) monitors wheel speed, and matches stopping power to available traction.

*ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves and corners.
