2006 Suzuki Burgman 650 from United States of America
Nada - bought it with a couple scuffs on the plastic, & one piece missing (damaged by previous owner) - can't say I was real impressed with either dealership I dealt as far as what was needed to replace it, but I don't kill 'em for that since it's an odd piece to lose, & they did try.
Great Storage, respectable acceleration, & power,
Does fine two up.
Brakes haven't failed me yet, & was able to duck a drunk at 45mph so the handling's good 'nuff.
Pretty comfortable, but the factory screen just ain't built for your average U.S. male (I ain't real tall, but tall 'nuff apparently) so it loses points there. The exec would be a bit better for that.
Lots of storage by motorbike standards. Two full helmets & a laptop was a quote, & I think I could manage that with some jiggering.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I am very interested in purchasing this bike. My three friends have 600cc super sports, but I live in the city (Toronto) and really don't see the practical side of this.
I want to commute downtown from Scarborough. And on weekends just take it out the back roads up to Barrie, or where ever. My mind says the Burgman is the right choice, my ego is saying I'm going to get an earful from my buddies. Would you consider this a good bike to start out with that will last for a beginners attention? I don't wanna start on a 250 cc. Does this go into a different bracket for insurance because it is a scooter?? Where do you live in Canada??
