2006 Suzuki Burgman 400 from United States of America


Fun for the rider and the pocketbook


Previous owner wrecked it on the right side, and broke the piece of trim under the floor board. Easy to replace.

General Comments:

I have been impressed with the nimbleness the Burgman shows on the road. It corners better than my H-D Sportster 883 Low did.

With the fuel injection, I have been able to ride at 26f this winter, and the scooter cranked without any trouble.

I'm very pleased to say that I'm getting an average of 62.9 MPG between city, highway and back roads.

If you are at least a little mechanically inclined, you should be able to do most services yourself, as all most any part and a service manual is available on-line at many different sites, most the time cheaper than at the dealer.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

2006 Suzuki Burgman 400 from Australia


Hard to beat on every level



General Comments:

Whilst I've only travelled approximately 1000 kms on my 400 Burgman, I couldn't imagine a more comfortable machine for daily commutes or a cruise into the country.

It has practically everything you could want for convenience - especially the massive storage under the seat and the lockable glovebox.

The power, acceleration, economy, wind protection and sheer fun makes a second car purchase out of the question.

Check the features list and you'll see why it's arguably the best buy on the market. The car-like dash has both analogue and digital read outs with large easy to read info. The hand brake is great, and enables you to rest your hands and feet at traffic lights etc.

What gives me a real buzz is when you get the eye of a cruiser or sports biker at lights. The smug, semi-friendly nod of acknowledgment is followed by a look of amazement as soon as the Burgman accelerates.

The engine has a throaty, raspy sort of growl. It is a unique sound and grows on you after time. Highway cruising is quiet, super comfortable and winding roads are handled with ease provided you keep reminding yourself you're not on a super high performance sports bike.

I'm 59 and recently got back into riding after 35 years off the saddle. The Burgman 400 is a great way to re-start. It is just an easy to ride machine, and encourages the rider to concentrate on the traffic and road conditions without having to worry about gear changes or foot brake pedal.

I bought mine from a dealer for $6000. It was a one owner with 6500kms on the clock. I've already had a couple of guys saying they'll give me $6000 for it if I was to sell. No chance. I may get another bike one day, but I'll keep the Burgman in the garage too. It will be interesting to see the rate of acceleration of the odometers between the leg through and the leg over species.

Forget all other lower capacity scooters. This is the way to go.

2003 Suzuki Burgman 400 from United States of America


Best 400 cc commuter bike on the road!


Not the fault of the bike. California will not let me register this 400 Burgman. It is a 49 state only bike.

General Comments:

Excellent 400cc single automatic scooter. I have owned 20 bikes over 40 yrs of riding. This Burgman 400 is the best 400cc bike ever. Plenty fast on the freeway or zero to 40 mph!. Will go 75 mph easily.

Never overheats, wind screen is excellent. Can't say enough about this practical 400 cc bike. You could ride it LA to NY easily with no fear of breakdown.

Craig Wilson Los Angeles seat is bigger than a gold wing seat! Very comfortable. Under seat storage is huge. Will hold 2 gallons of milk plus food for 2. You can also bungee cord an elephant on the side handles of bike!
