No problems to this point.
I purchased the Burgman 650 after taking a long trip on the Yamaha 400. The Majesty, while a good all-around ride, was a little lacking in "cruisability", i.e., it was a bit hesitant at highway passing speeds and hill climbing. It also was a little slow out of the hole. I wanted something that had a little more power reserve.
I bought the Burgman 650 last August, and this one does the trick. Highway cruising is effortless - I can go 75 mph all day if I want. It's not quite as nimble as the Yahama, but it more than makes up for it for it in power and ride comfort. The suspension seems a lot smoother than the Yamaha as well.
It has a fair amount of engine braking effect, which takes a little getting used to. However, this can actually be an advantage in cornering and braking.
I find the seat comfortable enough, but the windscreen leaves something to be desired. You get some turbulence right around the helmet level. Unfortunately, the only after market replacement I've seen is too big for my liking.
Overall I'm very happy with my scooter and have received many compliments on it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
