Review Motorcycle News

 

The 650 is simply too heavy to handle really well at high speed, but below 80mph it's fine. There's a feeling of real luxury in the suspension set-up and the saddle is so soft you'll feel like your in your fave TV armchair as you glide down the A38.

The Burgman 650 has normal and `Power' auto modes on its auto gearbox, which allows the rider to selct how much acceleration they require - plus a manual mode, so there are five push button gears to choose from. Trick, but about 50bhp in a scoot weighing 238kgs dry is never going to win any drag races against proper bikes.

Suzuki excelled themselves when they created the 650 Burgman, as if they wanted to out-Honda the Silver Wing. It almost comes off, but the underside of all the Burgman models - from 125 to 650 - need careful attention to prevent corrosion setting in rapidly.

The 650 Burgman Executive (with ABS) costs a whopping seven grand. Ridiculous for a scooter and the Deauville 700 does the job of touring just as well for nearly a grand less. The smaller 250/400 Burgman models make better everyday commuters, with almost as much luggage space under their seats. Find a Suzuki Burgman 650 for sale.

Underseat storage is vast, easily enough for commuters and solo touring riders.
