The 650 Burgman is an excellent bike. I have 31,000+ on my 2013 through 13 states and Toronto, Canada (from NYC). No problems whatsoever. Great storage. Fully automatic. Very smooth on the interstates. I highly recommend it!

Hooverdarnit says:

I went to a cycle shop thinking I was going to buy a new Suzuki Burgman 650.  Then I sat in it.  I found the dash protruded back towards my knees leaving me about one inch of clearance (not enough, I’m 6’3″).   So I ended up getting a 2005 Aprilia Scarabeo 500.   I absolutely love it.

I own a Honda Foreza 125cc and it’s a super wee scooter. As it’s my first bike I’m going to keep it a year or two so I can get better insurance rates for the Burgman. I’d love to stay with Honda and purchase a Silverwing but feel these scooters are now looking dated, it’s well overdue a makeover. Enjoyable review Sir and being a Senior now these bikes are ideal for me.

Steve Caddick says:

Great review thanks. I like the idea of packing a few clothes, bit of food etc and disappearing for a few days on this bike as it looks so comfortable to ride.

Uno G says:

Sounds like the proverbial whining pom.

tim z1br3 says:

its obvious the Burgman isn’t aimed at the kind of person that prefers Café Racers. its aimed at people who want comfort and convenience (old farts). low center of gravity, its easy to handle. these bikes sell well in Europe, here in the U.S.A. they’re not very popular. ……….. I confess – i’m an old fart!

Knot Today says:

Best review I have see on this scooter so far. Love the power/NOS button part. Big :)’s

barnbersonol says:

You don’t wear full face or leathers on scooter. Not cool.

Geejay P says:

Appreciate the entertaining review. thanks!!

jen kirk says:

just bought a Honda silver wing similar to the burg .. always wanted to try a big scooter .
my verdict . love it love it .so easy to live with just did a 250 mile day on it got of as fresh as when i got on .. i don,t give a dam if others don,t like it .i do ..wish i had the sence try one years ago.

VilasTerror Motogp says:

Lets see why one Burgman 650 would be a smart option:

1- The Scooter layout: Out of the Box It offers the most comfortable and easy way of enter and exit something that use 2 wheels, and if your clothes are tight you will appreciate a lot, then we have to consider the details in Storage capability that avoid the problems of having to buy side bags and the all the material for there support that in the end cause aerodynamic problems that can be dangerous if you have something like a Yamaha FJR 1300 and you want to ride t like a R1… Then we have the weather protection that in one scooter like the Burgman 650 is on the Top spot of the best bikes for weather protection for riders and also for engine and chassis parts that are not has exposed like in one normal motorcycle..

2- The equipment that the Burgman offer is has complete has you find in the best Luxury bikes on the market, in my opinion only lacks a sound system to be equipped has the best of the best.. On the rest is has good has any other top bike, it offers great ligths for ridding in all conditions it has the electric control for the mirrors and a parking brake, the tyres, suspensions and brakes are decent enaugth for all type of ridding even for some Crasy guys like Antonio Lamberti just take a look

3- for what i speak in 1 and 2 you already realise that this Scooter makes a lot of sense and when we consider that in one city it would be better to ride this bike then any other touring bike that offers the same equipment, then you have a CVT that can be electronic adjusted
( That leave your shoes in good shape =) ), wish means that you can eliminate the problems off lack off consistency in the acceleration like you have in conventional CVT`s then you have a great machine that also has benefits in insurance, Fuel Economy, all in all is cheaper to maintain and leaving a Note In the CVT System, i have one scooter with cheaper materials on the CVT and it never let me down, it never brake on me and the CVT system dont need the worries of one Chain for example so All in ALL this scooter has to be the most luxury’s touring bike you can buy for a reasonable price and in the end it will make what the other top bikes does even if dont make you feel like the most popular motard in the town…lol

Dieter Dietzen says:

Aren’t these CVT? So… all the comments on “gear-changing” etc, are completely invalid, yeah?

mentalplayground says:

Thank You. I’m a old fart 🙂 and planning to buy Burgman 650. 🙂

Edit. I do got node in Bristol on 125CC Piaggio 😛

Francis Daulby says:

Stop apologizing or get off the bike.

58eltoro says:

i have a 2010 burgman executive me and missus love it she loves the comfy seat, it goes really well two up, i like to go summer evening runs in my own singing away to myself, i would definitely buy another,give one a go you,ll be surprised!!

Bjorn Arnols says:

isn’t this a cvt? with “gears” electronically imposed on top?

mitchell nix says:

Front brake lever is on the left bar, rear on the right. Use both together and it almost eliminates brake dive. I have the earlier model. Its great for me as I have M.E and fibromyalgia. MPG is about 50-55. Tank does about 120-140 miles. Use power mode and it will surprise some bikes. I outran a new Bonneville 900 from a 30 limit. He couldn’t keep up going uphill in power mode and he WAS trying!. Nice review BTW

The Scooter Life India says:

That’s really a dope machine 😀

Nazir Hussein says:

When someone finally grows up and realizes that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Buy what you want and what works for you! Good review.

cn 250 says:

Get the 400 cc model

Ben Tuppen says:

at my local suzuki dealership they told me that this bike is the fastest accelerating bike they sell

Scooter Pete says:

After riding cruisers and “real bikes” all my life I finally bought a Burgman. I have arthritis in my hands and clutching was just getting too much. I do a lot of touring and my Burgman has put the fun back into riding. Love it.

john rutkowsky says:

i have a 2016 suzuki bergman executive and gotta say its a pleasure every time i ride it and its the best large scooter out there hands down

goldengraemes says:

Ive got a hankering for a piaggio x10 330cc for commuting and keep the miles on my Bonnie Street Twin down

Fred G says:

I have been riding an AN400 Suzuki Burgman. I have put 150 miles on it. It EASILY goes 70 mph and is a great ride. My main ride is s 1864cc. Yamaha; I am 5’10” 240 lbs. This scooter is NOT under powered. 60 MPG.

GLS says:

Why would anyone get a Burgman? I just turned 68 today. My son, who just turned 21, is a motovloger. I had not ridden since he was born, but got thr “fever” to ride after going with him to look at new bikes. Little did I know that my arthritis ridden hip would keep me from throwing my leg over a motorcycle, due to the pain. So. I told him that I probably would not be able to ride again. Then we saw the Burgman. I never thought I would be riding a step through, but for me it was just what the doctor ordered, actually the doctor suggested a hip replacement, but the Burgman was way cheaper. I love it and for someone in my condition it works great. The windshield allows you to get as little or as much wind as you want without the neck stress of fighting the resistance. The Burgman has made it possible for me to ride again with comfort, cruise at 70 and enjoy riding with my son. I love it.

max leonard janssen says:

I just got rid of my Burgman. Only trouble!! It sucks like hell. Never again.

jdbondi says:

I had a Burgman 250 and currently a Honda Silverwing 600.Had many large capacity sports bikes over the years too. The Silvering has often surprised a few off the mark and it will often outrun other sports bikes of a similar CC capacity. Not exactly a BKing or ZX1400 buy suits its purpose for a daily commute bike for work and definitely comfortable. You laughed before you jumped on board mate – more fool you. I watched your review and thank you, but next time look before you leap!

Anil Löeb says:

when I older I gonna get a gold one with LED underlights. Gonna be drenched in pussy juice by the time I die.

jojizzle78 says:

Those bikes are EXCELLENT..I regret selling my burgman and I had a BMW c650gt.. now I’m stuck with a Honda goldwing f6b which pretty much go the same speed and it weighs like 850 pounds with less storage that I can’t even sell…I can’t believe the trade off of admiration for a motorcycle vs. comfort , thrills and practicality of a scooter! 22k vs 11k.. they both tour scooter has more usable storage.. burdman can keep up with the goldwing ,..burgman has better wind protection and it maneuvers better than the f6b .. Oh my f6b got a radio that u can hardly hear at highway speeds..yeah do not get a bike because it has a radio unless u plan on switching out the speakers and amp…

max leonard janssen says:

Burgman 650 sucks! The cvt is soo bad. Never again a Suzuki.

Joop Gord says:

Couldn’t review a turd!
Don’t give up the day job,

mitchell nix says:

Great forum called maxi muppets for all big scoots. For those who appreciate one of biking’s best kept secrets.

John Schneiter says:

Love my Burgman 650…. I have 12,000 miles on mine..

MrRuger1977 says:

I just got one of these for free!! Guy bent the front forks doesnt want to spend the money or take the time to fix himself so he signed it over to me. Its still driveable but needs repaired to get it licensed. Honestly im pretty pumped to use it for some long distance touring.

Vasco Pais Brandão says:

i have both a motorcycle (a supertenere 1200) and a scooter (burgman 200) because i love to ride but i need to wear a suit to work everyday (and carry my suitcase etc…) and theres no way i can do that on a normal motorcycle. They serve diferrent purposes. nevertheless i went on a 450kms ride up north on the burgy and enjoyed very much. Theres no doubt whatsoever that the scooter is the ideal everyday vehicle , even more if you live in a city. Its a way to ride everyday!

Lee Levine says:

It’s also good for bikers who can’t throw a leg over a motorcycle.

Mark Luebbers says:

I just bought my 2016 650 Burgman executive last year and I love this machine. Anyone who gets on it loves it!Automatic Transmission, Power mode is way cool for turns and curvy roads, heated seat and grips, ABS brakes, sooo comfortable and mega room under the seat….. plus phone connection and nice compartments in front. Smooth ride! Im so glad I bought the executive!Please be careful everyone. Don’t trust that car wanting too pull out, I hear about that all the time here in southern Illinois…

Bruce Truong says:

Is it me or those roads seems backwards, those English like to do it backwards,,, LOL. 🙂

William Cherrington says:

The Burgman range of Scooters are very capable machines, I had a 400 Burgman and it was brilliant, really comfy, the engine electrics died on it so I got rid, but I’d definately have another.
Even though this is a scooter you’d be suprises how many nods you do get from bikers, I now ride a Yamaha xj900 Diversion and I nod at scooter riders because I’m not prejudiced, if it has 2 wheels and an engine, handlebars and a seat, it is a motorcycle.
