Star ship Burgman.
Less than 800 km so far on my new Burgman 650 with electric folding mirrors and adjustable screen. Factory topbox and heated grips are a nice touch too. Performance is very smooth and stable . As a long term motorcyclist it took a little while to get used to having the rear brake where the clutch should be! Staying below 4000 rpm for the run in period of 800km is frustrating but the Burgman will sit on 100km at about 3900 rpm! Economy is a little unknown but she did 250km and still had 2 bars showing on the gauge and took 10.47l to refill. Sti...ll a little uncertain with cornering but seems to prefer good country roads with long sweepers and is grn eat on the highway. I am a shorty (5'7") and the screen is great. I can leave my visor open in the high setting and enjoy the breeze without buffeting or noise. The riding position is relaxed and comfortable . Low speed manoevering and parking takes some getting used to and this is where the 270kg mass is most noticeable. Looking forward to using full rev range after run in and experimenting with manual and power modes. So far so good!
Can’t live with out it, save space when parking, really economic to run, looks beautiful and is very comfortable to ride. Saves space when parking at my apartment. Lovely colour which is a metallic white. Really economic when servicing. Can ride fairly long distance without being tired and wearing the right gear am snug as a bug.
Two years of magic!!!
I have had heaps of bikes over 50 years and would rate the Burgy with the best. 38000 k's in 2 years on it and still looked and drove like new. Even in 2 horrific thunderstorms she came out a winner. If she was a woman I would marry her. If there is a fault with it I am yet to find out. I do most of the maintenance myself and find google, Burgman Forum and others a great source of information at my fingertips. All in all my Burgy is a winner to me and if anybody asks my opinion I don't hesitate to tell them about the Burgman 650.
