Staff blog: Burgman v Tmax: the jury's out

Steve Farrell, 02 July 2013 17:06

One or two readers have commented that they doubt the Burgman 650 is as good as some other big scooters out there, like Yamaha’s Tmax or BMW’s C600 Sport. This week I’ll be finding out.   I'm doing a group test of six big scooters, also including the Honda Integra, Aprilia SRV850 and BMW C650GT.   I’ll be doing my 160-mile commute on each of ...

Staff blog: I've got to stay up - someone on the internet doesn't like the Burgman

Steve Farrell, 21 June 2013 14:35

Every time I write a blog on the Burgman, I seem to become embroiled in debate with critics of the scooter.   I don’t know why I feel the need to convince others to like it. It reminds me of that joke about internet arguments, where a wife asks her husband if he’s coming to bed and he says: “No. ...

Staff blog: In defence of the Burgman, pt 1

Steve Farrell, 13 June 2013 10:41

I’m experiencing mild frustration at some of the preconceptions I’ve encountered about the Burgman. If you’ve read my replies to reader comments under my previous blog entries, you may have detected a hint of defensiveness.   Although I’m really enjoying using the Burgman, for example, people keep telling me to get rid of it. So far five reader comments have ...

Best bikes for under £5k: 2005-2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000

MCN, 10 June 2013 07:00

What was it like then?This was the superbike to have in the mid-noughties. The K5/K6 was magnificent, but little did we know it would be the best GSX-R1000 ever. After a steady improvement through the models, from the 2001 GSX-R1000 K1 to this 2005 K5, we naturally expected the K7 to be better, but it wasn’t – it was too ...

Staff blog: How much?

Steve Farrell, 04 June 2013 10:14

I got a shock when I saw the price of new standard rear tyre for the Burgman 650 ABS Executive from a Suzuki dealer: £184 plus £30 for fitting.   The first one has just been replaced during the 4000 mile service, which costs £135. So that’s a total of £349.   I do 800 miles a week commuting to ...

Staff blog: A question for readers

Steve Farrell, 04 June 2013 09:43

I’ve been accused of being over-critical of bikes in the past. A spot of rust after a couple of months and I have a whinge about it in print. “What about the positives?” a manufacturer once complained.  So I’m not going to do that this time. I’m going to report that the Burgman 650 ABS Executive is a fantastic, underestimated ...

Staff blog: The myth of the Burgman's small tank

Steve Farrell, 22 May 2013 11:23

I've established the Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has a much longer tank range than it’s credited with.   Some reports have estimated it at 150 miles, probably because the fuel warning starts flashing at about 130. In fact you’ve got a bar left on the gauge and at least 40 miles in the tank at that point.   There’s ...

Staff blog: Blinded by handlebar muffs

Steve Farrell, 14 May 2013 10:50

In this week’s paper I report how the heated grips on the Suzuki Burgman 650 could be warmer. Just about every journalist on the launch in Scotland seemed to agree on the point. Some said they seemed to work intermittently.  Others questioned whether they worked at all. Suzuki scratched their heads and said they’d look into it. On the ride ...

Suzuki C1500T first ride

Adam Child, 30 April 2013 06:30

They may be about as relevant in the UK as a 50ft Winnebago or eight-litre SUV but, if you hadn’t cottoned on already, ‘baggers’ - or be-bagged or panniered cruisers designed for comfort and custom style and, usually, also with Plexiglass screens, a relaxed riding position and footboards instead of conventional footpegs, are big news in the U S of A. ...
