Beautiful machine

I'm now on my 2nd Burgman. I never considered buying a scooter (having always ridden bikes), until I saw one of these on eBay. Hadn't ridden for w while so I thought it would make a good interim bike until upgrading. Anyway, it's been so solid and reliable, plus so comfortable to ride around, that I ended up upgrading to an exec after 100,000km. Plenty of space under the seat, narrow enough to get to the front of the line at traffic lights, yet powerful and heavy enough for solid freeway/country cruising.
Everything
That stupid plastic cover over the electrics under the left glovebox always comes off.

yes it's great BUT?

As I said it's great yet made perfect with a taller screen/Givi $250.00 aud
The std screen should have been more ajustable for height.
the ride is a little on the hard side even on rear soft setting
But all up a perfect ride and a great tourer, buy the screen and thats it you will find there is much else you need to buy.

std screen to short and im 5 foot 6"

Depends where you want your screen to be. If you want to look through it - After the screen gets all scratched up, you won't be able to see when it rains or at night.

best choice large CC scooter on the market

published

Bought this bike in 2007 and ride it every day. Has never let me down. Love the great weather protection and huge underseat storage. Can fit 2 helmets and a few clothes or lots of shopping including a 30 pack of soft drink. It mightn't look as funky cool as a harley davidson but I had one of them too and preferred riding this. Practical, smooth, cheap to run. Plastic always looks good.
Storage, weather protection, ease of use
has a large body so isn't the best for lane splitting but I do it anyway by pulling the mirrors in

Wait for the 30,000 mile transmission failure which will cost more to fix than the scoot is worth. Love will turn to hate, stay close to home !

It is scary to think that it is not a serviceable item but I've done 75,000miles (120,000km) & touch wood, the transmission works like the day I bought it.

Local Riders?

Had the 650 Exec for 8 months now and love it. In the first month I did a 3000k interstate trip and it held the road like a rock, and gave me no trouble other than my aching jaw from continually smiling. Is there an Australian Burgman forum or Burgman riders' club (I'm in central Vic)? A few group rides would be fun.

Grips too small & seat is better with a backrest

Hi there-thinking of buying a new 2012 model, have never owned a scooter before & wondering how it handles compared to a cruiser (my curent bike is a Suzi M50). Also, your thoughts please after long-term ownership? Cheers

I swapped my stock screen for a Clerview XL I had shipped from the States. Fully up, I see through. Fully down, I see over. It's 2.5 inches taller than stock and works very well.

This is my fourth 650 Burgman and this one is the Executive which has an electric adj screen and a 6th gear overdrive and ABS,but they are all marvellous,have owned over a hundred bikes and have had a bike license for 70years and nothing compares to the ease and pleasure of riding a Burgman I am now 87 and enjoying every minute of the Suzuki.Very easy to ride.
Practically everything
Some panel guages are hard to read in some light,not the kph which is quite large

Awesome Bike!

Just picked up the AN650.   Love it, lots of reserve power, handles like a bike, easy to operate, gives me more time to enjoy the ride!  Makes anyone look like a Super Hero with the "James Bond" Styling.
great styling and price, lots of fun.
no radio, needs more accessory options.

A great bike/scooter. I am a big guy and I have been told that it suits me. Love the quick take offs, leaves nearly everything in it's wake. Would recommend to anyone looking for a bike/scooter. Absolutely love it.
Love the bike/scooter. Great ride. Have had road bikes in the past, but this is better. I commute 150 km daily and this bike/scooter does it with ease. Very economical. Storage space is great. I am looking at a cruise control for my bike/scooter which would make it ideal for cruising.
Yes, the screen is too short but for all the pluses, this is something I can bear.

Overall, ease of automatic and engine power prevails. I want to keep this bike and just have to accept those cons.
Speed and acceleration better than many bikes . Cruises easy at 150km/h. Obvious are under seat storage, easy automatic operation
Unstable steering at very slow speeds. As it has no clutch , strong engine braking felt all the time as soon as throttle returned. Imagine entering corners with engine brakes on and cannot disengage ! Hard and uncomfortable rider seat and picks up every bump and dent of the road. While stylish in appearance, I feel too plasticky. Dry 240kg is too heavy. Speedo showing 10% faster than actualy is.

"Suzuki Burgman 650" - Bloody Rippa !!!

published

I've been riding my '03 model Burger for 2 years (36 000 K's) now and it's never missed a beat. Can't stress how good it is as a cruiser and even though it's a scooter, the city ride is fantastic ! Scooter haters look out coz this is more like a comfy bike. 15 inch wheels and the engine not being attached to the swing arm mean it handles more like a bike than any other scooter. I recommend the Burgman to anyone who needs something easier or more comfortable to ride !!
Styling, power, comfort, storage space, visibility on road. IT'S DIFFERENT !!
Screen too short, drive belt longevity (kevlar alternatives available from U.S.A.), weight (236 Kg but you get used to it!!),
