The Burgman series of scooters (known in Japan as Skywave) is produced by Suzuki with engine capacities from 125 cc up to 638 cc. Models include:

AN series[edit]

Launched in 1999, the original model line-up consisted of the AN250 and AN400 models. In 2002 the AN250 was dropped, replaced by the European-legislation compliant for learner-license purposes UH125. However, the AN250 continued to be released in other countries. The UH prefix was used on this model due to a current model of non Burgman heritage still being produced. This is the AN125 and bears no resemblance nor lineage with the Burgman series.

AN2 series[edit]

In 2003, the fuel injected AN2 series was launched in UH125, AN400 and AN650 variants. With a redesigned fairing package allowing for better lighting, more storage capacity and 1litre more fuel capacity, there was also the option for ABS on the AN400 and AN650 models.

In 2004, Suzuki launched an up-market AN650 Executive, which involved a full ABS and accessories package.

Models[edit]

  • UH125 Burgman 125 - often mistakenly identified as AN125 (an earlier Suzuki model which shares none of the Burgman traits). Whereas a Burgman UH125 is classed as a super scooter, AN125 is a scooter.
  • UH150 Burgman 150
  • UH200 Burgman 200
  • AN250 Burgman 250
  • AN400 Burgman 400
  • AN400 Burgman 400 ABS
  • AN650 Burgman 650
  • AN650A Burgman 650 Executive - this package typically adds ABS (Antilock Braking System), an electric adjustable windshield, electric adjustable folding mirrors, passenger backrest, chrome bar ends and chrome muffler cover. In Canada and Europe, heated hand grips and heated seats are also part of the Executive package.
