The looming Euro 5 regulations have resulted in plenty of updates this year. The 2022 Suzuki Burgman 400 midi-scooter is no exception. The motor gets a workover, and new electronic rider aids are added to the multi-purpose—urban, commuting, light-touring—scooter platform.
The top-end of the 2022 Suzuki Burgman 400 is where the big changes are happening. The 16-hole fuel injectors are gone, and they are replaced with 10-hole injectors. According to a Suzuki spokesman in the United Kingdom, the result is “more minuscule fuel droplets and increased air agitation, improving fuel consumption.” New cam profiles are also instituted for the DOHC 399cc powerplant, along with revised ignition timing.
The 2022 Suzuki Burgman 400 gets a new twin-plug cylinder head, with the plugs firing together. Suzuki tells us that the new head gives the scooter’s powerplant a “strong power delivery, increases combustion efficiency, and aids fuel consumption.” There’s also a new piston to augment the other updates.
At the end of the exhaust process is a cleaner two-catalyst system that supersedes the old single-cat setup.
When these changes are combined, the Suzuki insider told us that the updated engine has “well balanced low-midrange torque with improved throttle control.” To handle the difference in power delivery, the latest Burgman 400 scooter gets traction control.
Deceleration has been made safer by a new ABS package that is slightly lighter.
While sitting on the new Burgman 400, you’ll notice that it has an updated dash. Carryover features include one-touch starting, LED lighting, 42 liters of storage under the seat, six liters of cargo space in the fairing, and a 12V socket for device charging. Security comes in the form of the Suzuki Advanced Immobilizer System, and a chain gate through the bodywork that allows a chain to be run around the frame.
The UK editions of the 2022 Suzuki Burgman 400 will have blue wheels, along with your choice of Matte Silver, Matte Black, and Iron Gray paint. There’s no word on the price, and England will be getting the new Burgman in the Summer.
