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

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

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.

Accessory Review: Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Covers

Tucano Urbano Nano Shoe Covers, £33.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: 2000 miles/18 months What’s good? These really do make old boots waterproof again.

Accessory Review: Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer

Granger’s G-Max Universal Footwear Proofer, £5.99 Tester: Steve Farrell Time/miles: One month/1000 miles What’s good?

Spray it onto damp, clean leather, and ‘maximum waterproofing’ will be restored. Also ...

Staff blog: A lecture from the rozzers

You might think your licence would be safe on a scooter but I’ve already been in trouble with the rozzers a week after picking mine up.   The Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has two automatic modes: Drive and Power. The latter is surprisingly, addictively brisk.   Pulling out of a petrol station on the way to work yesterday morning, ...
