Review Motorcycle News

Launched in 2002, Suzuki's Burgman 650 was an attempt to build on the success of the firm's smaller Burgman 400 and 250 scooters. Like its competitors, Honda's Silver Wing and Yamaha's T-Max, it uses a custom-designed parallel twin engine. This high-output design uses liquid-cooling, four-valve heads and fuel-injection to produce strong, clean power delivery. The Burgman uses a computer-controlled automatic gearbox, with selectable performance modes. The standard mode changes gear ratios at lower revs, for good economy, while a sports mode changes the ratios at higher revs for stronger acceleration. The variable belt transmission also has a 'manual' setting, allowing electronic selection of set ratios.

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.
