MILAN – American Suzuki Motor Corp.’s scooter lineup includes only the Burgman 400, 650 and 650 Executive. At Suzuki’s dealer meeting in late September, Motorcycle Division VP Mel Harris announced the OEM’s plan to capitalize on consumer demand by importing a selection of small displacement scooters scheduled for delivery in summer ’09.

Here are the bikes, on display at EICMA and already for sale in Europe, that Suzuki’s dealers in the United States will probably be getting next year:
