AN series

Launched   in   1998,   the   original   model   line-up   consisted   of   the AN250   and AN400Y   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.
