Not sure yet with my Burgman 650
After riding a SYM 400 I ( belt driven ) for 4 years I purchased the Burgman 650 ( 2011 with 22.000 Km). Perfect on the Hwy,
longer legroom as my SYM. One thing I don't like is the engine braking power when slowing down as well as the gearing. My Sym handles a lot better ( as it has no gears ) and is not shaft driven when slowing down. Not sure if the driveshaft or the gearing is doing this abrubed stopping ( when slowing down ).I know there are a few sensors, throttle position and a couple more...In my opion it is a scooter for long distance r...
Purchased in August 2019 for $5,800.00.
Had to buy it when very cheap way below retail..
I was humming and arring about buying the 2005 650 burgy, the previous owner had it since 2010, it is now July 2019 and she had 72000 km yes you had right, people say stay away from it once it hit 50000, but the previous owner was a bike mechanic and the service history was impeccable since new. he documented everything, he had done to it,He said it was good for another 250000? What? really, just as long as service is up to date the bike is almost like brand new too, so I just bit the bullet and bought her, drove it back to where I lived on the...freeway 35 km away and sat on 100 to 105km per hr, the bike was just astonishing, I am glad that I bought it, the previous owner bought himself the latest 650 burgman, because the bike was so good, and because he could, other wise he said he would not buy another one...let you know how I go later..
Purchased in July 2019 for $2,000.00.
- Verified purchase
Im hooked not anymore lol
Everything written below is factually correct, but after 56k on clock the bike had serious failure. So my advice if your thinking of buying one,,,is if it is is near 50k then forget them.
50,000 klm is there limit of trouble free riding. I have since tsk with plenty of others who had exact same mechanical failure after 50k.
50k on clock, 2004 model. Such a big size but so
easy to handle. Im a bike rider for life, this is first scooter. Never going back to bone jaring bikes after buying this. Had the burg for 1 month, amazing power, g...
