The word

Suzuki BergmanThe scooter prototype, produced as a joint venture between Suzuki and Intelligent Energy, is a fuel-cell driven scooter which first appeared in 2009 at the Tokyo Motor Show.

This new iteration has better range and economy. It's an air-cooled fuel cell power system with a range of 350km, equivalent to its gasoline-powered Burgman counterpart.

Public road tests of the Burgman FC will take place in Loughborough and then expanded into fleet testing in London and other UK cities.

And so ...

Definitely a big step ahead for the adoption of fuel-cell motorcycles and scooters.
